Cover Reveal: Awaken by Sarah M. Ross

Happy Monday! I have a cover reveal for you today! Here it is:
Awaken (Patronus, #1) by Sarah M. Ross
Original release date: January 27, 2012
Age Group and Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy/Paranormal
Book Description:

Lucy Donovan was supposed to have a weekend of fun in the sun, celebrating her upcoming graduation from college. In a split second, everything changed. A drunk driver ended Lucy’s mortal life. Lucy opens her eyes to a world she never imagined possible and a new destiny: as a Patronus, a guardian of spirits. Adjusting to her new role and abilities while negotiating this confusing realm will test her limits and push her further than she ever dreamed she would go. From wayward spirits who don’t want her help to soul stealing vampires, and even a stuck-up British royal, Lucy must brave them all to save one spirit she can’t bear to lose. Further complicating her confusing life is an inexplicable yet growing connection she feels to a member of her team, Max, whose mysterious behavior leaves her both confused and intrigued. Waking up dead was just the beginning of her problems. Lucy’s death is about to become the greatest adventure of her life.

About the Author

I started my obsession with reading at an early age, getting in trouble for sneaking BabySitter Club and Nancy Drew books into math class in elementary school. I would read any fiction book I could get my hands on. I knew it was an addiction when instead of grounding me from TV or music, my mom would take away my books as punishment (The Horror!). My love of all things paranormal was inspired by my good friend Laurie, who convinced me that books with vampires, witches, and all things shifter were amazing. After a little reluctance, I gave it a shot with the Sookie Stackhouse books, realized she was right, and the rest was history.
I grew up in Pittsburgh, graduated from The University of Pittsburgh with my degree in English, and taught 8th graders to love reading as much as I do for several years. I will always be a proud member of the Steelers Nation, but I couldn't take the cold and moved my frozen tush to Florida where I now live with my family and two cats. You will find me now with my trusty Kindle in hand and toes in the sand!

  1. Oh she got a new cover for it! I must say I like this one more, it seems more open graphically.

  2. Good news first, the blurb sounds good. I haven't read any New Adult yet (would this be New Adult?), but I have been looking for one to try. Maybe it will be this one. But the bad news? That cover is just bad. I didn't see the other cover, but if this one is better, that one must have been awful! I am growing though. Just because I don't like the cover I will still try out the book.

    1. Yup, New Adult. But if you're looking for a New Adult book, try Easy by Tammara Webber or anything by Colleen Hoover - they're ore mainstream. And I'm going to agree with you- when I signed up for this cover reveal, I thought I was going to get a *better* cover to reveal - this one seems worse? Which is too bad. But I *try* not to judge books by their cover (doesn't always work lol).

  3. That's a lovely cover! The sky really reflects the tone of the book and the description:)

  4. I love this cover! It's simple and clean and makes me want to read it to see what happens behind the door! Thanks for sharing!
