Harbinger, by Sara Wilson Etienne, sounds awesome. The cover is mysterious, the synopsis sounds incredible. 

I’m thrilled to be able to reveal one of the pieces of art depicting a scene from Sara’s debut (which also happens to be a standalone)!

Without further ado, here’s the synopsis:

Girl, Interrupted meets Beautiful Creatures in this fast-paced thriller

When sixteen-year-old Faye arrives at Holbrook Academy, she doesn’t expect to find herself exactly where she needs to be. After years of strange waking visions and nightmares, her only comfort the bones of dead animals, Faye is afraid she’s going crazy. Fast.

But her first night at Holbrook, she feels strangely connected to the school and the island it sits on, like she’s come home. She’s even made her first real friends, but odd things keep happening to them. Every morning they wake on the floors of their dorm rooms with their hands stained red.

Faye knows she’s the reason, but what does it all mean? The handsome Kel tries to help her unravel the mystery, but Faye is certain she can’t trust him; in fact, he may be trying to kill her—and the rest of the world too.

Rich, compelling writing will keep the pages turning in this riveting and tautly told psychological thriller.

And here’s the art reveal, created by Brian Ormiston:

What do you think? The artwork certainly helps Sara’s debut stand out, don’t you think? I, for one, can’t wait to get started on HARBINGER – its bound to be incredible.
