The first book is going to be Cinder (based off of...you guessed...Cinderella), and it will be released in January! The cover reveal was today on the MacKids blog, where they were posting some pretty funny "rejected" covers. But, here is the final cover:
What do you all think? I like the leg with all the mechanical bits and the red shoe...I just am not a fan of the title font. However, despite the fact that I am a cover junkie, this one sounds better than it looks, and I'm excited for it! Here's the description:
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . . Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future. In this thrilling debut young adult novel, the first of a quartet, Marissa Meyer introduces readers to an unforgettable heroine and a masterfully crafted new world that’s enthralling.Also, thanks to Rachael, blogger at thebookmuncher.com and marketing intern extraordinaire at Macmillan, for basically hyping me up all day long with her emails about how awesome this book is!
