Cover Reveal! Shadow of the Mark by Leigh Fallon (and Giveaway!)

12:08 AM

I'm very excited to be helping reveal the gorgeous cover for Leigh Fallon's Shadow of the Mark, the second novel in the Carrier Trilogy, on the blog today!

 Release Date: July 9, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen

Summary (from Goodreads): 
Life for Megan Rosenberg just got a lot more complicated.

While she evoked the air element, and her feelings for Adam intensified, a web of lies, deceit, and betrayal was spun around her. With the Order tightening its hold, and the reinstatement of the Mark Knights, Megan has more questions than answers as the Marked Ones grow in strength.

New people arouse suspicion, the DeRises start behaving strangely, and Megan begins to unravel a destiny shrouded in mystery. It’s a destiny the Order has struggled to hide, and a destiny someone from the past… far in the past, has already laid claim to.

Alliances will be made, and friends will be lost, as the Order’s dark secrets are revealed by the very thing they sought to destroy.

Leigh Fallon's Thoughts on the Cover:
I know, there's no mistaking it. This is definitely a Carrier Series cover, but that was the intention. After the amazing reception to the cover of Carrier of the Mark, HarperCollins wanted Shadow's cover to be instantly recognizable. And it is, but the new darker color palette reflects the darker tone that this installment brings, and the pink and purple really make it pop. I love it and think HarperCollins have done another amazing job. I hope you like it too.

You can visit Leigh Fallon's author website at You can also already pre-order a copy of Shadow of the Mark on Amazon.

Leigh Fallon is also hosting an awesome giveaway to coincide with the cover reveal with chances to win one of the first signed ARCs of Shadow of the Mark, bookmarks, buttons, and more. The winner will be announced by the author. Good luck!

About Leigh Fallon:
I started out life in South Africa. A year later my parents moved home to Dublin, Ireland. When I was older and realized my parents had moved me from exotic Durban, to sedate Rathfarnham, Dublin 16, I was rightly ticked off.

Giving up lions for sheep, I grew up in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains where I went to a convent school and had to contend with uniforms, gabardines, and nuns. When not dodging the beady glare of the Sisters of Mercy, I was devouring every book I could get my hands on.

I traveled all over Europe while working in banking and treasury, but I gave up my calculator in favor of a keyboard and haven't stopped writing since. My first book, Carrier of the Mark, was published by HarperTeen in 2011.

Our home is in Cork in the south of Ireland, but we're currently on loan to Massachusetts in the US where I continue to write books about magic, ghosts,and romance, with a bit of Irish flavor.
