Cover Reveal: Binary by Stephanie Saulter
I’ve always enjoyed the minimalist UK cover designs of the ®Evolution books by Stephanie Saulter, but GOOD GOD the US versions are just STUNNING. My jaw dropped last year when Quercus showed off the US cover of Gemsigns and now I find myself floored again when they shared with me the US edition of the sequel, Binary.
I’m very pleased to participate in the reveal today. With its poignant commentary on society and incredible insight into what it means to be human, Gemsigns was one of the top sci-fi novels I read last year. Binary promises to be all that and more, and this cover is actually an allusion to my most absolute favorite scene from the first book — but that’s all I’ll say about that, no spoiling the best part!
Here’s the cover, tell me your thoughts!
Zavcka Klist is no longer the ruthless gemtech enforcer determined to keep the gems enslaved she once was. She’s now all about transparency and sharing the fruits of Bel’Natur’s research to help gems and norms alike.
Or is she?
Neither Aryel Morningstar nor Dr. Eli Walker are convinced by this change, but the gems have problems that only a gemtech can solve. In exchange for their help, digital savant Herran agrees to work on Klist’s latest project: reviving the science that drove mankind to the brink of extinction.
Then confiscated genestock disappears from a secure government facility, and the more Detective Varsi investigates, the closer she comes to the dark heart of Bel’Natur and what Zavcka Klist is really after—not to mention the secrets of Aryel Morningstar’s own past.
It’s a powerful cover. Personally I love the eye-catching color theme (you really can’t go wrong with yellow, if you want something to jump out at your from the shelf). Can’t wait to read it. Binary is set to be released May 5, 2015 in the US.
