Hi guys welcome to Cover Wars, where covers do a little catwalk for us then we get to pick our favorites. Before we get to see this week’s competitors lets get to see last week’s winner, your favorite Magic Under Glass is...
Now that we know who gets to bask in all the glory lets see the book blurb of Beta by Rachel Cohn.
Elysia is created in a laboratory, born as a sixteen-year-old girl, an empty vessel with no life experience to draw from. She is a Beta, an experimental model of a teenage clone. She was replicated from another teenage girl, who had to die in order for Elysia to exist.
Elysia's purpose is to serve the inhabitants of Demesne, an island paradise for the wealthiest people on earth. Everything about Demesne is bioengineered for perfection. Even the air induces a strange, euphoric high, which only the island's workers-soulless clones like Elysia-are immune to.
At first, Elysia's life is idyllic and pampered. But she soon sees that Demesne's human residents, who should want for nothing, yearn. But for what, exactly? She also comes to realize that beneath the island's flawless exterior, there is an undercurrent of discontent among Demesne's worker clones. She knows she is soulless and cannot feel and should not care-so why are overpowering sensations clouding Elysia's mind?
If anyone discovers that Elysia isn't the unfeeling clone she must pretend to be, she will suffer a fate too terrible to imagine. When her one chance at happiness is ripped away with breathtaking cruelty, emotions she's always had but never understood are unleashed. As rage, terror, and desire threaten to overwhelm her, Elysia must find the will to survive.
Now that we all get the gist about what is on the inside lets see what is on the outside.
First we have the hardcover cover the one with the girl that was supposed to be soulless but will discover that there is more to this world than just what we are supposed to do.
Then we have the cover makeover for the paperback edition of this book, the one that depicts the island and what seems to be a glance to the people that inhabit it.
Well guys contestants have done the catwalk and now it is time for you to vote be it in the form of a comment, poll or smoke sign; your opinion is highly appreciated.
