[Aus] Cover Reveal :Hallowed by Cynthia Hand

3 Nov 2011

by Cynthia Hand
For months part-angel Clara Gardner trained to face the raging forest fire from her visions and rescue the alluring and mysterious Christian Prescott from the blaze. But nothing could prepare her for the fateful decisions she would be forced to make that day, or the startling revelation that her purpose—the task she was put on earth to accomplish—is not as straightforward as she thought. Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend, Tucker, Clara struggles to make sense of what she was supposed to do the day of the fire. And, as she is drawn further into the world of part angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, Clara learns of the terrifying new reality that she must face: Someone close to her will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.

Described by Richelle Mead as “utterly captivating,” Unearthly received outstanding reviews, garnered accolades from New York Times bestselling authors, and was named an Indie Next Pick. In this heart-wrenching sequel, Cynthia Hand expertly captures the all-consuming joy of first love—and the agony of loss. This beautifully woven tale will appeal to fans of Lauren Kate, Becca Fitzpatrick, and Aprilynne Pike.
How utterly GORGEOUS is the cover?!?! As much as I didn't quite like Unearthly as I would've liked, the covers are definitely one of the prettiest ever <3 The release date is also not *too* far away - Jan 2012! Then I'll be able to hug & gaze adoringly at this baby every day!

Which cover do you like best?

    The AUS cover get my overwhelming vote for the first and second books in this series---they have both been breathtaking! I've even been tempted to pay the extra cash to get the AUS copies from fishpondworld, since it hasn't been available at BookDepo for ages! I love this series!

  2. hahaa, I love the Aus covers too! Book 1 & book 2 look perfect together ehh? But then again, I reckon ALL the cover's are gorgeous <3 If I could, I would buy all the different versions & display them on my shelf!

  3. I am very in love with Unearthly. I love the Australian Hallowed cover a lot!!!!! I think all the covers from UK, US and AUS are gorgeous! I just can't choose! Thank you for sharing the different covers! I never see the AUS cover before but I got the AUS cover for Unearthly! :)
