I’ve had the pleasure of helping author Lara Whatley with the cover reveal of her latest novel, Frozen Flames. This novel is a young adult science fiction and fantasy due for release in June 2017.
My favorite color is blue, so anything blue is appealing to me. I love the crack that extends in all directions of the cover showing that something is amiss or broken. According to the blurb (which is down below), things aren’t exactly “normal” anyway. This was a great way to show that.
Plus, the gold spiral symbol in the middle makes you question what that is, what it means, and what it does. It gives more meaning to the cover, to the book itself, making you question what the story is actually about.
Also, the title looks embedded in the ice. For example, the “F” in “Frozen” is staggered a bit as though it’s cracked as well, which I think is a cool effect.
Lexi would give anything to have those minutes back-the minutes when she’d stood inside the fence, waiting for the clock to tick down on that stupid dare. If she hadn’t stayed-hadn’t gone in the first place-she wouldn’t be in this mess.
But she had, and she was. And now things were different.
When you wake up one day with a whole range of new abilities, life gets interesting quick. You can fly, disappeared, and shoot deadly flames from your finger tips. Suddenly, being an orphan who’s forced to live at your high school seems like no big deal. Now your biggest worry is that people have started to notice. And they won’t seem to leave you alone.
For Lexi, navigating this new world is no easy task. Can she control her abilities? Whom can she trust? Has she said goodbye to ‘normal’ forever?
