Cover Reveal: Julie Kagawa’s ‘TIL THE WORLD ENDS

Typography, graphic design and, oh yeah, JULIE KAGAWA fans–unite! 🙂

I’m pleased to present Julie Kagawa’s ‘TIL THE WORLD ENDS cover.

The cover is designed around three storylines, first of which is written by Julie and the subsequent two by Ann Aguirre and Karen Duvall, into one. All three books center around a natural disaster. Based on what you see on this cover, I’d love to find out in the comments which disasters you think will appear in the series!

The bold typography of the title conveys the urgency and panic in its stark sans-serif font. Even the apostrophe before the world ‘Til is a foreboding little noose! Kudos to Art Director Kathleen Oudit and her design team for this gorgeous cover. She sent us a little something about how the natural disasters were incorporated into the cover design.

“[In the design you will find] a section of an infrared satellite photograph of a melting Alaskan glacier; small glowing particles and primary colors were combined into a semi-abstract pattern representing nature gone rogue. Then, the chaotic texture flows into a branch of blood red vein – representing humanity as both vulnerable prey and triumphant heart.”

The first title in the series, Dawn of Eden by Julie Kagawa, will be released on January 29, 2013 from Luna Books.

Read on to get the synopses for each book!

Dawn of Eden by Julie Kagawa

Before The Immortal Rules, there was the Red Lung, a relentless virus determined to take out all in its path. For Kylie, the miracle of her survival is also her burden-as a doctor at one of the clinics for the infected, she is forced to witness endless suffering. What’s worse, strange things are happening to the remains of the dead, and by the time she befriends Ben Archer, she’s beginning to wonder if a global pandemic is the least of her problems….

Thistle & Thorne by Ann Aguirre

After a catastrophic spill turns the country into a vast chemical wasteland, those who could afford it retreated to fortresses, self-contained communities run by powerful corporations. But for Mari Thistle, life on the outside-in the Red Zone-is a constant struggle. To protect her family, Mari teams up with the mysterious Thorne Goodman. Together, they’ll face an evil plot in both the underworld of the Red Zone and the society inside the fortresses that could destroy those on the outside…for good.

Sun Storm by Karen Duvall

Sarah Daggot has been chasing storms since she was a child. But after the biggest solar flares in history nearly destroy the planet, she becomes a Kinetic, endowed by her exposure to extreme radiation with the power to sense coming storms-in the cosmos and beyond. And she’s not the only one. Sarah believes the Kinetics are destined to join forces and halt the final onslaught of the sun. She’ll vow to keep trying to convince the one missing link in their chain of defense, the enigmatic Ian Matthews, up until the world ends.

    Awesome cover! I think it represents disasters that put something into the blood.What a fascinating sub-genre! One of my favorite books ever is Dreamsnake by Vonda McIntyre – also a post-apocalyptic romance from many years ago.
