It's Friday which mean it's time for a little cover love. Today I have the awesome new cover to Sarah Beth Durst's The Lost. I am a big fan of water colors so there is a good chance that, if you use them on a cover, I will love it. And that's totally the case with The Lost. I really love the unusual colors. You don't see a ton of yellow book covers. I also really like the town silhouette. There's something a little bit creepy and ominous about it. While this style of lettering has been overdone lately, i still like it. The short title really stands out and you would have no trouble finding this one on the shelf. Below is the synopsis:
Lost your way? Your dreams?
Welcome to Lost.
It was supposed to be a small escape. A few hours driving before turning around and heading home. But once you arrive in Lost...well, it's a place you really can't leave. Not until you're Found. Only the Missing Man can send you home. And he took one look at Lauren Chase and disappeared.
So Lauren is now trapped in the town where all lost things go-luggage, keys, dreams, lives-where nothing is permanent, where the locals go feral and where the only people who don't want to kill her are a handsome wild man called the Finder and a knife-wielding six-year-old girl. The only road out of town is engulfed by an impassable dust storm, and escape is impossible....
Until Lauren decides nothing-and no one-is going to keep her here anymore.
Doesn't it sound creepy? I can't wait for this one to come out later this year. Anyone else excited about this one? Thanks for checking out this week's Uncovered. Have a great weekend!
