This Week's YA Book News: The Penguin Teen Edition

There's been a lot of exciting book buzz this past, from cover reveals to movie news. Here's three of my favorite cover reveals from this past week and all three of them come from Penguin Teen. Andrea Cremer's prequel to the Nightshade series, RIFT. Ally Condie's third book in her MATCHED trilogy, REACHED. Debut author Elizabeth Richard's BLACK CITY.

Published by: Philomel / Penguin Teen
To Be Released on: 8.7.12

Chronicling the rise of the Keepers, this is the stunning prequel to Andrea Cremer's internationally bestselling Nightshade trilogy!

Sixteen-year-old Ember Morrow is promised to a group called Conatus after one of their healers saves her mother's life. Once she arrives, Ember finds joy in wielding swords, learning magic, and fighting the encroaching darkness loose in the world. She also finds herself falling in love with her mentor, the dashing, brooding, and powerful Barrow Hess. When the knights realize Eira, one of their leaders, is dabbling in dark magic, Ember and Barrow must choose whether to follow Eira into the nether realm or to pledge their lives to destroying her and her kind.

With action, adventure, magic, and tantalizing sensuality, this book is as fast-paced and breathtaking as the Nightshade novels.

Don't miss EW's Shelf-Life's interview with Ally about REACHED here.

To Be Released on: 12.13.12

In a city where humans and Darklings are now separated by a high wall and tensions between the two races still simmer after a terrible war, sixteen-year-olds Ash Fisher, a half-blood Darkling, and Natalie Buchanan, a human and the daughter of the Emissary, meet and do the unthinkable—they fall in love.

Bonded by a mysterious connection, that causes Ash’s long dormant heart to beat, Ash and Natalie first deny and then struggle to fight their forbidden feelings for each other, knowing if they’re caught they’ll be executed—but their feelings are too strong. When Ash and Natalie then find themselves at the center of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to pull the humans and Darklings back into war, they must make hard choices that could result in both their deaths.

What do you guys think? Have you already added all three of this to your TBR pile?
