Cover Reveal: Solstice by P.J. Hoover

Holy Christmas Batman, guys. We are so freaking excited to be presenting the super badass over of Solstice by P. J. Hoover!! To finally cut the suspense... Here it is:

Title: Solstice
Author: P. J. Hoover
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication date: June 21st 2013

Jacket Flap copy:

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.
About the author:

P. J. Hoover first fell in love with Greek mythology in sixth grade thanks to the book Mythology by Edith Hamilton. After a fifteen year bout as an electrical engineer designing computer chips for a living, P. J. decided to take her own stab at mythology and started writing books for kids and teens. When not writing, P. J. spends time with her husband and two kids and enjoys practicing kung fu, solving Rubik's cubes, and watching Star Trek.

You can check P. J. out in her blog or her website and you can chat her up on Twitter and Facebook as well!

My thoughts:

I think that the cover looks really cool. There's just something so serious and powerful looking about it. It just oozes "READ ME. I WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD." I absolutely CANNOT wait to read Solstice! I'm so glad that it's finally being released in hardcover.

And... P. J. is doing an awesome giving over at her blog to celebrate the unveiling of Solstice's cover!

Thanks so much for including us in the reveal, Patricia! :)
