Revelations (Elysium Chronicles, #2)
Release Date: November 5, 2013
Hardcover: 320 pages
Publisher: Tor Teen
Blurb to come!


I like how this cover is so startlingly different from most of the YA covers I've seen and are on my shelf. Rather than heading for an ethereal tone or choosing a washed picture (where almost nothing is out of place), this one opts for a stark tone where the grittiness of the surroundings is bared open for all to see. The abandoned harbour (I'm assuming that that's what it is) gives us a sense of foreboding as it seems as though the girl is braving the storm and the sinister happenings all on her own. And the sunglasses and rose on each of her hands as well as the flock of birds flying into the sunset, all add a perfect touch to the bleak surroundings.

Fantastic! I can only imagine holding this gorgeous thing in glossy hardback. It's going to be such a treasure on my shelf :)


Renegade (Elysium Chronicles, #1)
Since the age of three, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Winters has been trained to be Daughter of the
People in the underwater utopia known as Elysium. Selected from hundreds of children for her ideal genes, all her life she’s thought that everything was perfect; her world. Her people. The Law.

But when Gavin Hunter, a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into their secluded little world, she’s forced to come to a startling realization: everything she knows is a lie.

Her memories have been altered.

Her mind and body aren’t under her own control.

And the person she knows as Mother is a monster.

Together with Gavin she plans her escape, only to learn that her own mind is a ticking time bomb... and Mother has one last secret that will destroy them all.


J.A. Souders was born in the heartland with an overactive imagination and an overabundance of curiosity that was always getting her into trouble. She first began writing at the age of 13, when she moved to Florida and not only befriended the monsters under the bed, but created worlds for them
to play together.

Because she never grew up, she decided she’d put her imaginary friends to work and started writing. She still lives in the land of sunshine and palm trees with her husband and their two children.
