ABOUT SPARKS RISE (The Darkest Minds: 2.5 e-Book release)
Available online September 2, 2014
This New eBook Novella connects the last two novels in The Darkest Minds trilogy.

Sam didn't think things could get worse at Thurmand rehabilitation camp. Then the Reds arrive. Everyone assumed the kids with firepower had been killed years ago. Instead they were taken away, brainwashed, and returned as terrifyingly effective guards. To her horror, Sam recognizes one of them: Lucas, the one spark of light in Sam's dark childhood. 

Lucas has a deadly secret--he beat the brutal training that turned his fellow Reds into mindless drones. When Sam defends herself against an attack by a vile PSF guard and faces a harrowing punishment, Lucas must risk his everything to save her.

Ruby can't look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government's attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. Only Ruby can keep their highly dangerous prisoner in check. But with Clancy Gray, there's no guarantee you're fully in control, and everything comes with a price.

When the Children's League disbands, Ruby rises up as a leader and forms an unlikely allegiance with Liam's brother, Cole, who has a volatile secret of his own. There are still thousands of other Psi kids suffering in government "rehabilitation camps" all over the country. Freeing them--revealing the governments unspeakable abuses in the process--is the mission Ruby has claimed since her own escape from Thurmond, the worst camp in the country.

But not everyone is supportive of the plan Ruby and Cole craft to free the camps. As tensions rise, competing ideals threaten the mission to uncover the cause of IANN, the disease that killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others with powers the government will kill to keep contained. With the fate of a generation in their hands, there is no room for error. One wrong move could be the spark that sets the world on fire.

I love them! They all mesh well together, and I'm sure the pictures on the front have meaning in the stories (I wouldn't know because I haven't read this series yet). :)

I Just read The Darkest Minds, and I loved it. Also that tote bag is to adorable.

Jessica said...

I like that the covers are sort of dark and mysterious. They don't really give away anything about the books, but they do give you a FEEL for what they'll be like.

I love the colors in those covers. So striking.

Rachel said...

I love the covers! They are all so pretty and match in a way :D

Jordan said...

I LOVE the overs of this series! I also love how the titles make a sentence! These would be awesome additions on my bookshelf!

I think the covers are very creative and fresh! There aren't many that look similar, which makes them distinctive. Thank you for the giveaway!

I like all except book 1. I don't get what that yellow thing is. It looks like a fork.

I think the first two are gorgeous and the last one disappointed me. I'm hoping the book's contents aren't reflected by the cover :/ Thanks for the giveaway!

I like the covers, I haven't read the books yet so I will be interested in finding out if there is a meaning behind them.
