Cover Reveal: Solstice by P.J. Hoover

Hi everyone! I’ll start this week with a cover reveal of a very intriguing and loved book. I say ‘loved’ because it has been self-published and read before. PJ Hoover’s Solstice is being published by Tor Teen in 2013.

Ze cover:

Solstice is one red-hot read—it intrigues, sizzles, and satisfies. —Cynthia Leitich Smith, New York Times bestselling author

About Solstice:

Publication Date: June 21, 2013
Published by: Tor Teen

Piper's world is dying. Each day brings hotter temperatures and heat bubbles that threaten to destroy the earth. Amid this global heating crisis, Piper lives under the oppressive rule of her mother, who suffocates her even more than the weather does. Everything changes on her eighteenth birthday, when her mother is called away on a mysterious errand and Piper seizes her first opportunity for freedom.

Piper discovers a universe she never knew existed—a sphere of gods and monsters—and realizes that her world is not the only one in crisis. While gods battle for control of the Underworld, Piper’s life spirals out of control as she struggles to find the answer to the secret that has been kept from her since birth.

An imaginative melding of mythology and dystopia, Solstice is the first YA novel by talented newcomer P. J. Hoover.

My reaction to the cover:

OMGOMGOMG. So colorful and gorgeous! I like the way the title isn’t straight – it’s sort of wavy and hazy, adding a sense of mystery.  The amount of detail involved – from the colors, to the domed city, to the glows of light adds up in my head and forms one word: perfect. So freaking excited to see this on the actual book!

What do you think of the cover? :) The synopsis?


  1. This comment has been removed by the author.

  2. I love the cover but I wish the font is different or maybe not very much distorted. The shield on the city reminds me of Under the Dome by Stephen King though I haven't read it :P
