Firefight has a cover! And I think it’s awesome. It was revealed yesterday at Entertainment Weekly Shelf Life, which has a short interview with me explaining the new direction for the covers.
The book turned out really, really well and we want to get a copy into your hands! Because of this, we’re running contests on Facebook and Twitter, giving away an advance copy (once it’s printed in a few months) along with a Steelheart poster. The contest is open to anyone in the US and Canada, and here’s how you can participate: Just share this post on Facebook (and mark your shared post “public”) or retweet this tweet. Five Twitter winners will be chosen randomly, and three Facebook winners will be chosen randomly. Two more Facebook winners will be the people who get the most “like”s on their shared posts. The contest ends Tuesday, April 29, at 12:00 noon Mountain time.
But you don’t need to gamble on that. Instead, you can totally preorder the book right now at your favorite vendor! Our handy widget up to the right will take you to the store of your choice in your region, and let you jump on to get the book sent to you as soon as it comes out in January.
Below you can find a blurb for the book, but if you haven’t read Steelheart, I suggest you not read any farther due to spoilers. Instead, go pick up a copy of that book, since it’s awesome too. 🙂
They told David it was impossible—that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet, Steelheart—invincible, immortal, unconquerable—is dead. And he died by David’s hand.
Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there’s no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs.
Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David’s willing to risk it. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David’s heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic—Firefight. And he’s willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.
