Today, we are SUPER excited to share with you the exclusive unveiling of the new, paperback cover of Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton. We here at Novel Novice are HUGE fans of this book (see exhibit A: Sara’s review and exhibit B: Steph’s review for just two pieces of evidence), and we were thrilled earlier this year when Kelly let us debut the spiffy new cover for the upcoming sequel, A Beautiful Evil, which comes out in February.
Now we get to show you the new cover for Darkness Becomes Her which matches the A Beautiful Evil cover oh-so-perfectly! So without further ado … here it is:
And in case you need a better excuse to read Darkness Becomes Her (you know, more than just this awesome cover), here’s the official synopsis & book trailer:
Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.
Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.
She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very…different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.
Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.
The paperback comes out January 3rd and we’ll be featuring this series in February as our first Book of the Month for 2012!
And just for fun (and to see them side-by-side), here are BOTH spiffy covers together:
