Cover Art Friday: Cover Reveals for Pulse and Taken

Happy Friday, Muses!

It's been awhile since I did a "Cover Art Friday" and I came across these nifty covers while searching for some ARCS. Pulse by Patrick Carman and Taken by Erin Bowman aren't due out until early 2013. The new year is right around the corner, so why not get a little sample of what's to come???

Be aware that since there is a large gap between now and their publication dates, these covers can change. I will of course keep you posted if they should in the future.


P.S. I personally can't wait until Taken comes out! :)


PULSE (Pulse Trilogy, #1)
by: Patrick Carman
Release Date: Febuary 2013

From New York Times bestselling author Patrick Carman, a teen fantasy-adventure of epic proportions. In 2051, some teens have a “pulse,” the power to move objects with their minds. Compulsively readable, with thrilling action scenes and a tender love story.

The year is 2051, and the world is still recognizable. With the help of her mysterious classmate Dylan Gilmore, Faith Daniels discovers that she can move objects with her mind. This telekinetic ability is called a “pulse,” and Dylan has the talent, too.

In riveting action scenes, Faith demonstrates her ability to use her pulse against a group of telekinesis masters so powerful they will flatten their enemies by uprooting street lights, moving boulders, and changing the course of a hurtling hammer so that it becomes a deadly weapon. But even with great talent, the mind—and the heart—can be difficult to control. If Faith wants to join forces with Dylan and save the world, she’ll have to harness the power of both.

Patrick Carman’s Pulse trilogy is a stunning, action-filled triumph about the power of the mind—and the power of love.


TAKEN (Taken, #1)
by: Erin Bowman
Release Date: April 2013

There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends...and he’s gone.

They call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.

Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?


So what do you think of these covers?


  1. Love these covers! They're so imaginative and really make me want to read the book. I hope they don't change between now and the time they get published!

    1. Hey Becky!

      I know, right? I hope they don't change the covers as well. I especially like the cover for Taken. I love the color scheme! Once and awhile they will change the artwork, sometimes for the good, sometimes for the bad.

      For example, I am currently reading an ARC copy of Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend and they changed the cover. I don't like the new artwork at all, so I am actually glad I snagged a paperback ARC copy with the original artwork!

      Anyway, thanks for the visit! I'll be stopping by your blog tomorrow!


  2. oohhh. Love the Taken cover! Been wanting to read it! Thanks for sharing Mia :D

    1. Aww, no problem! I know I haven't stopped by your blog in awhile, but I plan to rectify that tomorrow! I also haven't had the chance to do your monthly meme in awhile, so hopefully I will get on that as well. I have a lot of catching up to do! Thanks for your patience and support as always!

      Mia :)
