Cover Reveal: The Modified

Hello Everyone!

Annnnnd welcome to the cover reveal for the first book in our new trilogy, The Modified :D The Modified has a tentative release date of late September/early October. It’s a futuristic (Sci-Fi like with a mix of a little dystopian too) paranormal series that takes place slightly in the future, and deals with genetically modified human beings in a war against an unknown race called the Bringers (more on that later). This series is also more romantic than The Childe series and little older as well, but will still be considered Young Adult.

Now, this cover reveal is special to us for three reasons: 1) It's hosted by Rachel from Young Adult Novel Reader 2) There's a nifty giveaway lined up and 3) We're being joined by 40+ bloggers who have all offered to help spread the word! Below you will find a list of all the bloggers who have graciously offered their time and blog space :) We can't even begin to thank them enough and we're tremendously grateful. 

We're SUPER excited to share this cover with you and hope that you guys like it as much as we do. Sooooo here it is...THE COVER FOR THE MODIFIED: 


What would you sacrifice to save the one’s you love? To save the one who holds your heart? To save the world?

Kenley Grayson is all too familiar with these questions.

After Earth is thrust into its first intergalactic war with an unknown race called the Bringers, our military forces begin to suffer heavy losses. Desperate for a solution, the Allied Federation issues a worldwide draft for every able seventeen-year-old to enlist. As Kenley turns seventeen, she finds herself thrown into the very war that took her older brother’s life.
This year’s draft is a little different than in the past though. A new program, known as the Magnus Project, has been introduced, and only the best and brightest qualify. Kenley is amongst a select few whom are chosen to join this elite group of soldiers, and as a part of this project, undergoes a modification procedure that leaves her and her peers endowed with powers beyond their wildest dreams.
As Earth continues in its struggle against the Bringers, Kenley is transported to a high-tech training facility, the Magnus Academy, to prepare for the major battle that lies ahead. It’s here that she meets the California heartthrob, and son of a legendary war hero, Landon Shaw. As unexpected feelings toward Landon begin to develop, Kenley wonders if this is the right time or place for romance to bloom, especially when those feelings start to interfere with her training.
With the weight of the world on her shoulders, Kenley is constantly reminded of how important she and the rest of the Magnus cadets are to the fate of humanity. She is one of the Modified, Earth’s last line of defense against utter destruction.
