2014 Strange Chemistry Book Covers!

Recently Strange Chemistry released some of the covers for books releasing next year and they were so pretty I wanted to take the time to share them with all of you.

First up is the cover for The Almost Girl by Amalie Howard. This cover has a cool Terminator meets Underworld vibe to it that I'm totally digging.

17 year-old Riven comes from a world ravaged by a devastating android war, a parallel world to Earth. A Legion General, she is the right hand of the young Prince of Neospes. In Neospes, she has everything: rank, responsibility and respect. But when Prince Cale sends her away to find his long-lost brother, Caden, who has been spirited back to modern day Earth, Riven finds herself in uncharted territory. Thrown out of her comfort zone but with the mindset of a soldier and in a race against time to bring Caden home, Riven has to learn how to be a girl in a realm that is the opposite of what she knows. Will Riven be able to find the strength to defy her very nature? Or will she become the monstrous soldier she was designed to be?



The next cover is the sequel to Pantomime called Shadowplay and it is by Author Laura Lam. Personally I liked this cover much more than the first books. It's mysterious and slightly creepy while still giving off a pretty vibe.

The circus lies behind Micah Grey in dust and ashes. He and the White Clown, Drystan, have taken refuge in the decaying Kymri Theatre, home to the once-great magician, Jasper Maske. Though no longer a circus performer, Micah must still conduct a balancing act between his past and his future, while both avoiding the renewed and embittered rivalry of the magicians of Ellada, and the Policiers who are convinced Micah played a part in the death of his old Ringmaster.
A tale of phantom wings, a clockwork hand, and the delicate unfurling of new love, Shadowplay continues Micah Grey’s extraordinary journey.


Next up is the sequel cover to Zen Scarlett which is called Under Nameless Stars and it is by the Author Christian Schoon.  This cover reminds me a lot of A Million Suns by Beth Revis well before the series went through that awful cover change that is.

After facing a plot to destroy her school and its menagerie of alien patients, could things get worse? Yes, they could: her absent father has been kidnapped.

Desperate to find him, Zenn stows away aboard the Helen of Troy, a starliner powered by one of the immense, dimension-jumping beasts known as Indra. With her is Liam Tucker, a Martian boy who is either very fond of her, very dangerous to her, or both. On the verge of learning the truth about her father, Zenn’s quest suddenly catapults her and Liam thousands of light years beyond known space, and into the dark heart of a monstrous conspiracy.

Braving a gauntlet of lethal environments and unearthly life forms, Zenn’s courage is tested as never before. With the fate of entire worlds in the balance, she is racing headlong into trouble... again.
The next book is called Emilie and the Sky World by Author Martha Wells which is the sequel to Emilie and the Hollow World. I know I've seen covers like this one before but I always enjoy books that give me so much to look at. Plus I love when a series keeps a theme going with it's covers.

When Emilie and Daniel arrive in Silk Harbor, Professor Abindon, an old colleague of the Marlendes, warns them that she's observed something strange and potentially deadly in the sky, a disruption in an upper air aether current.  But as the Marlendes investigate further, they realize it's a ship from another aetheric plane.  It may be just a friendly explorer, or something far more sinister, but they will have to take an airship into the dangerous air currents to find out.  Emilie joins the expedition and finds herself deep in personal entanglements, with an angry uncle, an interfering brother, and an estranged mother to worry about as well as a lost family of explorers, the strange landscapes of the upper air, and the deadly menace that inhabits the sky world.



Last up is a Contemporary Fairy Tale Retelling called Feather Bound by Author Sarah Raughley. This cover is very pretty but I don't think the online photo does it justice. I bet in person you can really see all the details that make up the "Swan" dress. If anyone receives this one they'll have to let me know if it looks better.

But re-kindling her friendship and the dizzying new emotions along for the ride are the least of her concerns. Because Deanna has a secret – and somebody knows. Someone who is out to get Hyde. And if she doesn't play along, and help the enemy destroy him…she will be sold to the highest bidder in the black market for human swans.
 
Now Deanna is struggling to break free from the gilded cage that would trap her forever…

  1. Oh the Almost Girl looks really cool and it sounds good, too! Amalie Howard sounds familiar too I think I may have read something of hers before... Hmm. Anyways, I also like the cover for Feather Bound but I don't like that font >.<

  3. I haven't heard of any of these, except Pantomime's sequel. I still need to read the first book, but I heard great things. I kind of adore Strange Chemistry books. They're just so different. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Whoever Strange Chemistry has doing their cover art needs to be chained up in the basement or something. VERY few publishers have that many amazing things.
