Today I’m hosting an exciting cover reveal for Walled by Anne Tibbets, coming from Carina Press (HQN) in December. Walled is a New Adult book in the Dystopian genre and is the 2nd book in The Line series, following on from The Carrier.
Freedom means brutal choices.
Rebel lovers Naya and Ric have survived one year in hiding, raising Naya’s twins from infants to toddlers in the shadow of the brutal Auberge dictatorship. They’re alive, and they’re together, but the city is crumbling around them and the haunting memory of Naya’s dark days on The Line have never fully left them. Living in isolation won’t be an option forever.
When a mysterious revolutionary seeks their help to infiltrate Auberge’s electronic heart and shut it down, it’s an opportunity—it’s risky, yes, but if it works they’ll get out of the city and taste freedom for the first time. Naya needs this. They need this.
Beyond the broken walls of Auberge, Naya and Ric find the paradise they’ve always longed for. But with anarchy reigning and Naya’s children lost amidst the chaos, they’ll need to forfeit their post-apocalyptic Eden…or commit an unspeakable act.
Be sure to add Walled to your Goodreads ‘to read’ shelf!
Here it is!
I think it’s a really cool cover. It’s very modern and the circuit-board style pattern overlaying the model’s face makes me think of technology and electronics. I like how it’s mostly in black and white apart from her bright blue eye, which really stands out. I also love the font running vertically across the cover-simple but distinctive. It all adds up to give the impression of an edgy, futuristic read and it ties in very well with the first book in the series. I would definitely pick it off the shelf to read the blurb on the back.
