Cate Tiernan unveiled the cover art for Immortal Beloved, which is the first book in her new young adult trilogy. The book will be released later this year by Little, Brown. You can read an excerpt here. This isn’t really the cover that I expected for this series.
Here is the blurb from Publishers Marketplace:
Cate Tiernan’s IMMORTAL BELOVED, trilogy in which a 460-year-old teen runs from a life of empty parties and darkness and begins to turn towards the light, discovering in the process her own vast untapped magickal power, the presence of untold enemies and a mysterious Viking god of a man who may be, in more ways than one, her other half, for publication in December 2010.
Synopsis (Product Description):
New name, new town, new life. Nastasya has done it too often to count. And there’s no end in sight. Nothing ever really ends . . . when you’re immortal. But this time is different: Nastasya knows that this new town must hold her salvation—or her death.
Nastasya was born into darkness, and has embraced it her whole life. Four hundred years ago, a tragedy robbed her of her birthright, and she’s been living a lie ever since. Now, four centuries of exploring the depths and limits of dark power has left Nastasya feeling sickened unto death. If she continues down this road, she will end up as a very dark, twisted, evil thing—with unthinkable power. Or she can begin the long, painful road toward light, and reclaim the destiny that others tried to destroy.
They’re rare. You may have never met one, never sat next to one on a plane, never eaten in the same restaurant at the same time. But the Immortals are there. Have always been there. Will always be there. Moving among humans, playing out their own cursed fate. Sometimes subtly, sometimes with huge, sweeping implications for mankind. But no one will ever know. Except you.
