Cover Reveals: Ashes & Shadows by Ilsa J. Bick

I'm so excited to hosting today's cover reveal party for Ilsa J. Bick's cover reveals for the first two books in her The Ashes Trilogy! Today's reveals are for the paperback cover for Ashes and the cover for her upcoming sequel, Shadows!!! Without further ado, here are the fabulous covers:

It could happen tomorrow . . . 

An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the sky, destroying every electronic device, wiping out every computerized system, and killing billions. Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom—a young soldier—and Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP. 

For this improvised family and the others who are spared, it’s now a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human. 

Author Ilsa J. Bick crafts a terrifying and thrilling novel about a world that could be ours at any moment, where those left standing must learn what it means not just to survive, but to live amidst the devastation

On August 28th, 2012 you'll be able to pick up the paperback copy of Ashes. You can preorder it from: Egmont USA 

Originally released on September 6th, 2011 by Egmont USA, you can currently purchase the hardcover from Amazon | Barnes & Noble.

Aren't those covers awesome!?! I don't know about you guys, but I love the redesign for Ashes's cover. Being that this is a series, I absolutely love it when the covers match.
