Happy Wednesday evening! Hope you are all having a great week so far.. I’m back in my blogging zone and I am loving it!
Anyways, this evening I have a special treat for you all.. I am revealing the cover for YA Dystopian Novel The Rising Storm by Ceri. A Lowe, previously titled as Paradigm, it has been given a fabulous new look and a grand re-edit. Which is all very exciting
I’d like to say thanks to Noelle at Bookouture for allowing me to be a part of this cover reveal, it’s much appreciated.
Without further ado, here is the cover…
Well, this is certainly a cover you’d expect to see from a YA Dystopian novel. You could look at it and have some sense of what the story would be about. Despite this I actually honestly do like it. It’s vibrant, it’s intriguing and it certainly does stand out. The colours give you the idea that this story is going to be adventurous but also dark. Definitely a good one. Just by seeing this cover I know I want to read The Rising Storm.

What if the end of the world was just the beginning?
15-year-old Alice Davenport was a loner and an outcast before the storms swept away everything she knew. Saved from the ravaged remains of London by the mysterious and all-powerful Paradigm Industries, her fierce independence and unique skills soon give her recognition from the highest level of command. But their plans to rebuild civilisation from scratch mean destroying all remnants of the past – no matter what, or who, gets left behind.
Alice must decide if she will fight for the old world, or the new…
Decades later, 15-year-old Carter Warren is woken from the catacombs after years of cryonic sleep. He’s determined to do whatever it takes to climb the ranks to Controller General – until he realises the industry’s control methods have become harsher than ever. The Barricades make sure nothing from the Deadlands can get into the community – and no one can get out. And a shocking discovery about his own family causes Carter to question everything he’s ever known…
As Alice becomes entangled in the Industry’s plan for the future, and Carter delves into the secrets of his past, they must make sacrifices which threaten to tear them apart. And both of them are forced to confront an impossible question.
Would you dare to risk it all for the perfect world?
