Anybody else creeped out by the first cover? Anybody at all? It really can't just be me. I don't know what it is about young children, but for some reason they have this extremely disturbing capacity to be completely terrifying. You know in all of those Christmas songs where the kids start to sing at the end? That's not cute. That's horrifying. It sounds like something right out of a horror movie.
Now cover number four? That's some pretty kick-butt Photoshop right there. I don't find that one creepy at all, I actually think it's pretty cool. So why is it that I don't want to scroll back up right now and look at the kid on the first cover? Frankly? It's because she scares me.
Oh no, there she is again!
All hysterics aside, these covers are actually pretty amazing. My favorites are the two that have the wings spread out onto both sides of the book cover, though I do really like the colors of The Magpie Bridge and all of the awesome effects on Range.
Picture yourself standing at the edge of a dock.
Now picture being lost in your own head, utterly unsure of yourself, surrounded by people who want to use you, take you away, or simply kill you.
This is Junco Coot, aged 19, year 2152, daughter of the Rural Republic’s ranking commander. Assassin, semi-famous athlete, and on the run.
In front of you is your future...
A future filled with secrets so heinous and truths so outrageous, it will push you past the edge of sanity.
…and behind you is a life of lies.
Lies that will rip apart the threads of reality barely holding you together.
Congratulations, soldier. Your life is over, but your mission has only just begun.
Welcome to my twisted, messed-up life. No one’s getting out alive, so we might as well kick some ass on the way down.
I Am Just Junco is a dark, epic SF/fantasy that spans five full-length novels and one novella. It is NOT young adult.
Return releases December 2, 2013!
J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).
She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.
Pretty cool, huh? Actually, all of the book trailers for this series are really impressive too. If you want, you can see them here. Normally, I would just embed them here on this post, but for fear of revealing series spoilers and/or crashing this page with all of the video data being shoved through it, I think I'm just going to leave it up to you guys to use the link.
Oh, and look at this! The scary girl is back! But she brings good news. If you want to start reading the series now, you can buy it for 99 cents either here or here.
