Hm... I like the cover, but I think the alternative cover that can be seen on Goodreads matches the first book in the series a lot better. I think that while the destruction of the city in this cover is pretty and may be a strong indicating of what is to be expected in this book, I am fonder of covers being matchy-matchy. They look better on the shelf that way, in my opinion. However, as far as the story is concerned? I am intrigued. I have not read the first book in this series and the synopsis makes me wish I had. Perhaps a trip to Amazon is in store (because thankfully my 1-click button has yet to break after my abundance of use out of it).
Ruth Silver first began writing poetry as a teenager and reading heaps of fan fiction in her free time. She has written under three unique pseudo names and penned well over a hundred stories.
She attended Northern Illinois University in 2001 and graduated with her Bachelor's in Communication. While in college she spent much of her free time writing with friends she met online and penning her first novel, "Deuces are Wild", which she self-published in 2004. Her favorite class was Creative Writing senior year where she often handed in assignments longer than the professor required because she loved to write and always wanted to finish her stories.
Her love of writing, led her on an adventure in 2007 to Melbourne, Australia. Silver enjoys reading YA novels and sharing her favorite books with other readers. She runs her own book blog and also enjoys photography and traveling.
Her favorite YA genre is a mix of Dystopian and Fantasy which is evident in the upcoming release of her latest book, Aberrant. Slated for release April 2013 by Lazy Day Publishing, it is the first in a trilogy.
