Scorching? More Like Stunning...

Can we all take the time to squee over how awesome the cover for Mari Mancusi's new book Scorched is? 'Cause, um, I'm totally squeeing:

  1. That is one heck of a cover! Congrats Mari. It makes me wonder about the story too, ie does the girl have some sort of power over the giant lizard guy?

    1. I can't help but wonder that, too. Makes me even more eager to pick up this book once it's released!

    2. No spoilers, Nick! :) But I will share one secret - the dragon on the cover is actually female. :)

    1. Mari talked a bit about the cover process here: http://www.melissacwalker.com/cover-stories-scorched-by-mari-mancusi/

      There are even images of what the cover almost looked like, which is just as cool!

    1. I know, right?! It's as if Mari made a sacrifice to the Cover Gods to get something that amazing!

    2. Actually the sacrifice was to the dragon herself. They get hungry, you know!

    3. Guess that means writers everywhere will have to start searching for their own dragons to sacrifice to! :P

    1. Mari Mancusi is a fantastic author! I've read a few of her books, but still have a lot to catch up on. You probably haven't heard about Scorched yet since it doesn't come out till September!
