Awesome artwork for The Weight of Souls
We have a treat for you today! We have our paws on the stunning artwork that is intended to grace Bryony Pearce’s The Weight of Souls, coming in August 2013. We’ve decided that we just can’t wait to show you, and so here is a very non-final version. Obviously we don’t have author name or book title in place just yet, but hopefully this should whet your appetite for what is to come! The artwork is by Steve Wood, who has handled such gorgeous covers as Blackwood and Broken (we LOVE him!)
Here it is – what do you think?
Here is the book blurb:
She spends her life trying to avoid ghosts, make it through school where she’s bullied by popular Justin and his cronies, keep her one remaining friend, and persuade her father that this is real and that she’s not going crazy.
But then Justin is murdered and everything gets a whole lot worse. Justin doesn’t know who killed him, so there’s no obvious person for Taylor to go after. The clues she has lead her to the V Club, a vicious secret society at her school where no one is allowed to leave… and where Justin was dared to do the stunt which led to his death.
Can she find out who was responsible for his murder before the Darkness comes for her? Can she put aside her hatred for her former bully to truly help him?
And what happens if she starts to fall for him?
