I am so honored to be presenting the new cover for the second edition of Shannon A. Thompson’s Minutes Before Sunset published with Clean Teen Publishing. It will be released on July 28, 2015.
Without further ado…
Two destines. One death.
“Her kiss could kill us, and my consent signed our death certificates.”
Eric Welborn isn’t completely human, but he isn’t the only shade in the small Midwest town of Hayworth. With one year left before his eighteenth birthday, Eric is destined to win a long-raging war for his kind. But then she happens. In the middle of the night, Eric meets a nameless shade, and she’s powerful—too powerful—and his beliefs are altered. The Dark has lied to him, and he’s determined to figure out exactly what lies were told, even if the secrets protect his survival.
Jessica Taylor moves to Hayworth, and her only goal is to find more information on her deceased biological family. Her adoptive parents agree to help on one condition: perfect grades. And Jessica is distraught when she’s assigned as Eric’s class partner. He won’t help, let alone talk to her, but she’s determined to change him—even if it means revealing everything he’s strived to hide.
I read (and LOVED!) Minutes Before Sunset when it first came out. Here’s a snippet of my review:
“This book was brilliant, original and romantic. This is a timeless love story with incredible character growth, action and twists of fate.”
Going back and reading my review made me laugh, because the ONLY issue I had with the book was the cover. And I LOVE the new cover. It better represents what the book is about. I asked for a bit more edge and this cover is definitely edgy! I’m in love with the purple!
