Lifel1k3 Book 2 by Jay Kristoff Gets An Official Title, Cover, Synopsis, And Release Date

It has been out for quite some time but I really have to share to you the title and synopsis of the second Lifel1k3 book by Jay Kristoff. Ladies and gentlemen prepare your self to meet: DEV1AT3. It will be available next year to satisfy your all-things Eve cravings.

You can read the exciting synopsis of the book below. But before that hold your breath for the official cover, which I am quite sure most of you haven't seen yet. Personally I am torn because the OCD in me is not satisfied with the non-conforming new cover: the layout is all too disturbing for me as compared to the first one. But what can I do as the Kraken has already been released?

Check out the cover of Dev1at3 by Jay Kristoff.

Synopsis

From bestselling author Jay Kristoff comes the second installment in the LIFEL1K3 trilogy--hailed by Marie Lu as "a breathless, action-packed exploration of what humanity really means."

In the wake of a climactic battle in the ruined city of Babel, two former best friends suddenly find themselves on opposite sides of the same quest. Eve is torn between the memories of the girl she was, and the synthetic she's discovered herself to be. Together with her lifelike "siblings," Eve sets out to find the real Ana Monrova, whose DNA is the key to building an army of lifelikes. Meanwhile, Eve's best friend, Lemon, is coming to terms with a power that she has long denied--and that others want to harness as a weapon. When she meets a strange boy named Grimm, he offers to lead her out of the horror-ridden landscape and to an enclave of other abnorms like herself. There, Lemon quickly finds a sense of belonging--and perhaps even love--among the other genetic deviates. But all is not what it seems, and with enemies and friends, heroes and villains wearing interchangeable faces, Lemon, too, will join the race to locate Ana Monrova before her former best friend can get to her.

Dev1at3 by Jay Kristoff will be released on May 28, 2019.

Disney Studio's Movie Adaptation Of 'Artemis Fowl' Drops Teaser Trailer And A Familiar-Looking Poster

Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl series was one of my all-time favorites. I loved it so much that I had to share it with friends and family and the mass market edition copies I had disentegrated to pieces that I had to buy hard-to-find hardcover editions.

Many years ago, it was announced that a movie adaptation's under way and the casting was already made. I was ecstatic, of course! Who wouldn't wan't to see in wide screen their most beloved series (some of you purist probably wouldn't, but shame on you)? But as time went by it got delayed and delayed until the original cast got older that they couldn't fit in their roles anymore.

Fast forward to now, it is a good thing Disney picked up from where the movie previously left off and made a lot of improvements. News about the movie may be hush hush, but I am glad to share with you that the official teaser trailer and poster have already been released by said studio.

Watch the teaser trailer of Artemis Fowl the movie.


Check out the poster of Artemis Fowl the movie.

The Raven's Mark: 'Crowfall' By Ed McDonald Gets A Gritty, Cerulean Official Cover (UK Edition)

If you love Blackwing and Ravencry by Ed McDonald, then you'll be excited to know that he's coming back next year to give us more of The Raven's Mark series. The third book in the series is titled Crowfall, following the title's theme of a "cawing" portmanteau.

The cover has been unveiled recently courtesy of Dan Smith. On the flip side, it is sad to know that this will be the last book in said series. Hopefully it will be the best conclusion the story deserves. Are you ready for its coming?

Check out the cover of the UK edition of Crowfall by Ed McDonald.

Crowfall by Ed McDonald

Synopsis

Crowfall is a gritty epic fantasy for fans of Mark Lawrence, Scott Lynch and Daniel Polansky.

A sorceress cataclysm has hit the Range, the final defensive line between the Republic and the immortal Deep Kings.

Tormenting red rains sweep the land, new monstrosities feed on fear in the darkness, and the power of the Nameless, the gods who protect the Republic, lies broken. The Blackwing captains who serve them are being picked off one by one, and even immortals have learned what it means to die. Meanwhile the Deep Kings have only grown stronger, and are poised to deliver a blow that will finally end the war.

Ryhalt Galharrow stands apart from it all.

He has been deeper into the wasteland known as the Misery than ever before. It has grown within him - changed him - but all power comes with a price, and now the ghosts of his past, formerly confined to the Misery, walk with him everywhere.

They will even follow him, and the few surviving Blackwing captains, on one final mission into the darkness.

Crowfall by Ed McDonald will be released on June 13, 2019 in UK.
