Weighted by Ciara Knight: Cover Reveal

Today, Ciara Knight has revealed the cover for her book Weighted, which is coming out in August:

The Great War of 2185 is over, but my nightmare has just begun. I am being held captive in the Queen’s ship awaiting interrogation. My only possible ally is the princess, but I’m unsure if she is really my friend or a trap set by the Queen to fool me into sharing the secret of my gift. A gift I keep hidden even from myself. It swirls inside my body begging for release, but it is the one thing the Queen can never discover. Will I have the strength to keep the secret? I’ll know the answer soon. If the stories are true about the interrogators, I’ll either be dead or a traitor to my people by morning.

It's a prequel novelette to The Neumarian Chronicles, the first book of which will be released in 2013. Goodreads link.

Congratulations, Ciara!


Do you know Ciara or her blog? Are there any book covers/book releases you're looking forward to?
