OFFICIAL BLURB: Two months ago, the Tunnels of the underworld came for Nikki Beckett. That night, Nikki’s boyfriend, Jack, made the ultimate sacrifice. All Nikki wants is to save Jack before it’s too late. All Cole wants is to find his queen – and he thinks Nikki is the one. Both determined, both desperate, Nikki and Cole form a tense alliance, leading them on a dangerous journey to The Heart of The Everneath.
COMMENTS: Wow. Now THAT is a cover. I love how it’s kind of an opposite from the first book’s cover – where it looked like Nikki was emerging from the Everneath, and now she’s being consumed by it. And now along with the blurb…I definitely can’t wait to read this one. Late January’s a long time to wait, but I hope it’ll be worth it!

OFFICIAL BLURB: Keira’s hallucinating. First it’s a door hovering above the road; then it’s a tree in her living room. But with her parents fighting and her best friend not speaking to her, Keira can’t tell anyone about her breakdown. Until she meets Walker. They have an electric connection—and somehow it’s as if he can see the same shadowy images.
The more Keira slowly confides in Walker, the more intense—and frightening—her visions become. Trusting him may be more dangerous than Keira could have ever imagined. Because Walker is not what he appears to be—and neither are her visions.
COMMENTS: I love the hair across the face and the frothy dress/shirt/thing – it kind of looks like she’s immersed in water. And I think, if the blurb’s correct, that it sounds about right considering the content of the book – if she’s “immersed” in these visions she can’t escape. I’m pretty excited about this release, so here’s hoping it’s awesome!
