COVER REVEAL: Burning Kingdoms (The Internment Chronicles #2)

One of my favorite new series from last year was Lauren DeStefano's PERFECT RUIN (The Internment Chronicles #1). It was exciting and unique and so beautifully written. The second book in the series, BURNING KINGDOMS is set to release on March 10, 2015, and I'm so, so thrilled to share with you the cover! You ready?

Burning Kingdoms (The Internment Chronicles #2), by Lauren DeStefano
To Be Published March 10, 2015
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Genre: young adult sci-fi/dystopian

(Synopsis) After escaping through the bottom of Internment, Morgan and her fellow fugitives aboard the great mechanical bird land on the ground to finally learn what has lived beneath their floating island home all these eons.

The ground is a strange place where water falls from the sky as snow, and customers watch moving pictures and visit speakeasies. A place where families can have as many children as they want, their dead are buried in vast gardens of bodies, and Interment is the feature of an amusement park.

It is also a land at war.

Everyone who fled Internment had their own reasons to escape their corrupt haven. But caught under the watchful eye of another king that wants to dominate his world, they wonder if coming to the ground will drag Internment down with them.

But, that's not all! PERFECT RUIN is releasing in paperback format on the same day that BURNING KINGDOMS hits the stands. Want to see what that is going to look like too?

Aren't they gorgeous?! I'd love to hear your thoughts! Don't forget to add BURNING KINGDOMS to your Goodreads TBR, too!

I need to get used to these new covers. Personally I thought that the US hardcover for Perfect Ruin (original cover) was stunning.
