**Bringing you the best cover reveals, one post at the time!**

Some killer covers this week...

Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund
Expected Release: October 15th 2013
Series: For Darkness Shows the Stars #2
Publisher: Blazer + Bray
Goodreads Summary
Centuries after wars nearly destroyed civilization, the two islands of New Pacifica stand alone, a terraformed paradise where even the Reduction—the devastating brain disorder that sparked the wars—is a distant memory. Yet on the isle of Galatea, an uprising against the ruling aristocrats has turned deadly. The revolutionaries’ weapon is a drug that damages their enemies’ brains, and the only hope is rescue by a mysterious spy known as the Wild Poppy.
On the neighboring island of Albion, no one suspects that the Wild Poppy is actually famously frivolous aristocrat Persis Blake. The teenager uses her shallow, socialite trappings to hide her true purpose: her gossipy flutternotes are encrypted plans, her pampered sea mink is genetically engineered for spying, and her well-publicized new romance with handsome Galatean medic Justen Helo… is her most dangerous mission ever.
Though Persis is falling for Justen, she can’t risk showing him her true self, especially once she learns he’s hiding far more than simply his disenchantment with his country’s revolution and his undeniable attraction to the silly socialite he’s pretending to love. His darkest secret could plunge both islands into a new dark age, and Persis realizes that when it comes to Justen Helo, she’s not only risking her heart, she’s risking the world she’s sworn to protect.
In this thrilling adventure inspired by The Scarlet Pimpernel, Diana Peterfreund creates an exquisitely rendered world where nothing is as it seems and two teens with very different pasts fight for a future only they dare to imagine.

My Thoughts: How sad is it that I have a beautiful copy of For Darkness Shows the Stars just sitting on my shelf, and I have yet to read it?? Seriously, this is very lame of me, I need to remedy this ASAP. Until then, however, I am just going to stare at the cover of Across A Star-Swept Sea just a mite longer, because this little darling is Amazeballs. I WANT IT. Also, that girl kind of reminds me of Christina Aguilera in her early days, like she's singing to the ocean or whatever. I'm loving it, you go girl!

What do you guys think??
