Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal to share with you today. The Champion by Taran Matharu is a new fantasy YA novel and the third and final novel in the Contender series. I read the first book in the series and absolutely fell in love. I am looking forward to finishing up the series!
Synopsis of The Champion from Goodreads:
Cade has managed to survive the duel with the Hydra Alpha―barely. But the Games are far from over.
By order of their cruel and mysterious overlord, Abaddon, Cade and his friends are sent off to war against the Greys, a humanoid race who have far surpassed humans in technology on their home planet. This attempt to move up the leaderboard, however, leads Cade to a game-changing revelation: The Pantheon―the millennia-old alien masterminds behind the Games―have a weakness.
With the right artifacts scavenged from the land of Acies and a heavy dose of courage and luck, Cade has exactly one chance to end their tyranny forever. But if he fails, the lives of his friends―and the survival of Earth itself―will be forfeit.
Published by Feiwel Friends, The Champion, will release August 10, 2021 and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers. Are you looking forward to reading this book? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
