The Official Cover Of 'The Outsider' By Stephen King Unveiled, Reminisces Art Of 'A Monster Calls' By Patrick Ness

Is it just me or does the cover of Strephen King's The Outsider looks strangely familiar. Oh right, it's because it looks almost like the cover of A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and it is not such a bad thing, either. I loved it! And oh, is this also reminding you of The Upside Down from Stranger Things?

If you've seen most of the covers's of King's previous book, then you would say this cover is different in almost all planes. The prior ones are always bold and vivid in colors, almost like a slap in the face. But this one is suggestively grainy and dreamy that it does not even give a Stephen King book vibe. And as I said, it is not a bad thing.

Check out the cover of The Outsider by Stephen King.

The Outsider by Stephen King

Synopsis

An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories.

An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King’s propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.

The Outsider by Stephen King will be released on May 22, 2018.

#CoverReveal The Trials Of Apollo: 'The Burning Maze' By Rick Riordan

Artist John Rocco has done it again! The official cover of the third The Trials of Apollo novel by Rick Riordan (titled The Burning Maze) has just been released. It is one thing to read an exciting story by Rick Riordan, and it is another, if not entirely better, if the covers are just too good and uniformly satisfying.

The covers of Rick Riordan's serial novels have been very good to my OCD tendencies and this is no small feat. The uniformity of the layout and the typeset just makes me tear up with joy. Entertainment weekly has unveiled one such satisfying official cover and has released a sneak preview as well.

Check out the fantastic cover of The Trials of Apollo: The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan.

The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan

Synopsis

The formerly glorious god Apollo, cast down to earth in punishment by Zeus, is now an awkward mortal teenager named Lester Papadopoulos. In order to regain his place on Mount Olympus, Lester must restore five Oracles that have gone dark. But he has to achieve this impossible task without having any godly powers and while being duty-bound to a confounding young daughter of Demeter named Meg. Thanks a lot, Dad.

With the help of some demigod friends, Lester managed to survive his first two trials, one at Camp Half-Blood, and one in Indianapolis, where Meg received the Dark Prophecy. The words she uttered while seated on the Throne of Memory revealed that an evil triumvirate of Roman emperors plans to attack Camp Jupiter. While Leo flies ahead on Festus to warn the Roman camp, Lester and Meg must go through the Labyrinth to find the third emperor--and an Oracle who speaks in word puzzles--somewhere in the American Southwest. There is one glimmer of hope in the gloom-filled prophecy: The cloven guide alone the way does know. They will have a satyr companion, and Meg knows just who to call upon....

The Trials of Apollo: The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan will be released on May 1, 2018.
