::drumroll – even though you’ve probably already seen it by now::


CoverTwo destinies. One death.

“Her kiss could kill us, and my consent signed our death certificates.”

Eric Welborn isn’t completely human, but he isn’t the only shade in the small Midwest town of Hayworth. With one year left before his eighteenth birthday, Eric is destined to win a long-raging war for his kind. But then she happens. In the middle of the night, Eric meets a nameless shade, and she’s powerful—too powerful—and his beliefs are altered. The Dark has lied to him, and he’s determined to figure out exactly what lies were told, even if the secrets protect his survival.

Jessica Taylor moves to Hayworth, and her only goal is to find more information on her deceased biological family. Her adoptive parents agree to help on one condition: perfect grades. And Jessica is distraught when she’s assigned as Eric’s class partner. He won’t help, let alone talk to her, but she’s determined to change him—even if it means revealing everything he’s strived to hide.

Isn’t it beautiful?

    Amazing new cover reveal.
    Definitely going to order your book Shannon.
    Clean Teen publishing has given you a cover that really shows off your novel brilliantly.

    • Shannon A Thompson March 18, 2015 at 8:25 am #

      I’m so thankful for your support. My gratitude goes out to you! Clean Teen did an amazing job, and they continue to do so. The interior is just as gorgeous as the cover.

      • Phoenix Rainez March 19, 2015 at 3:05 am #

      • Phoenix Rainez March 21, 2015 at 3:22 am #

        Thanks Shannon and good luck with sales.

    I love it! I’ve emailed you the link to my post. That’s a lot of members – it’s amazing! 🙂

    • Shannon A Thompson March 18, 2015 at 8:25 am #

      Thank you! I’m glad there are so many Members of the Dark. 😀 I will have to make Members of the Light badges too.

      • joysofbookworms March 18, 2015 at 3:45 pm #

        Haha, and then I shall have them both! Talk about contradictory 😉 Well, if you think about it… *secret grin*

    Congratulations! The cover looks stunning!

  7. Charles Yallowitz March 18, 2015 at 5:47 am #

    That is a very cool cover.

    • Shannon A Thompson March 18, 2015 at 8:26 am #

      Thank you. 😀 Clean Teen Publishing’s artist is very talented.

    What a beautiful cover! Congratulations!!

    I am going to be totally honest here Shannon. This is the best decision you have ever made! Although I consider this to be one of my favourite series, I never liked the covers. This cover is asolutely stunning, and I truly believe that the cover of a book is what draws readers in. I know when I stand in a bookstore, it’s the cover that causes me to pick up a book and read what it’s about. I think you are going to see your sales rise dramatically :).

    • Shannon A Thompson March 18, 2015 at 8:27 am #

      I completely appreciate (and love) your honesty. I am very excited about the new covers, and I cannot wait for the new covers of the second and third book to release too. I am hoping readers love the new covers like you do. 😀 Sharing your thoughts with me means a lot to me because your reaction is everything I am hoping for.

  10. Mishka Jenkins March 18, 2015 at 6:16 am #

    That really is a stunning cover!

    Beautiful cover

    Beautiful cover!

  13. macyavenue March 18, 2015 at 8:42 am #

    Your mention of Member of the Light badges got me excited again! Haha!

    • Shannon A Thompson March 18, 2015 at 8:43 am #

      Haha I thought that would be fun to release with Death Before Daylight.

    • Shannon A Thompson March 18, 2015 at 2:52 pm #

      Thank you so much for your support! I cannot wait for July either. 😀

    Even though it’s not normally my genre, that cover makes me want it. I believe that means it’s doing it’s job. XD Congrats!

  19. Susannah Ailene Martin March 18, 2015 at 10:24 pm #

    I know I already commented on FB, but I wanted to add that I think the new cover looks better than the old one

    • Shannon A Thompson March 19, 2015 at 8:19 am #

      Aw, thank you! I’m excited about the new covers too. 😀 It’s nice to hear readers’ reactions toward this one compared to the last one too.
