Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal to share with you today. The Sound Of Stars (paperback edition) by Alechia Dow, is a YA science fiction fantasy that tells the story of a girl who risks her life for books and an alien who loves forbidden pop music, working together to save humanity. I positively LOVE this cover design and cannot wait to add it to my collection!
Synopsis of The Sound Of Stars from Goodreads:
Two years ago, a misunderstanding between the leaders of Earth and the invading Ilori resulted in the deaths of one-third of the world’s population.
Seventeen-year-old Janelle “Ellie” Baker survives in an Ilori-controlled center in New York City. Deemed dangerously volatile because of their initial reaction to the invasion, humanity’s emotional transgressions are now grounds for execution. All art, books and creative expression are illegal, but Ellie breaks the rules by keeping a secret library. When a book goes missing, Ellie is terrified that the Ilori will track it back to her and kill her.
Born in a lab, M0Rr1S (Morris) was raised to be emotionless. When he finds Ellie’s illegal library, he’s duty-bound to deliver her for execution. The trouble is, he finds himself drawn to human music and in desperate need of more. They’re both breaking the rules for love of art—and Ellie inspires the same feelings in him that music does.
Ellie’s—and humanity’s—fate rests in the hands of an alien she should fear. M0Rr1S has a lot of secrets, but also a potential solution—thousands of miles away. The two embark on a wild and dangerous road trip with a bag of books and their favorite albums, all the while making a story and a song of their own that just might save them both.
Published by Ink Yard Press, The Sound Of Stars paperback edition will release in the winter of 2021 and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers. Are you looking forward to reading this book? What do you think of the cover design? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
