Cover Reveal: THE CADET OF TILDOR by Alex Lidell

Today I’m taking part in the cover reveal for THE CADET OF TILDOR by Alex Lidell, coming from Penguin January 2013. In addition to the cover, I’ve got a giveaway below! But first, here’s the synopsis:

Having already survived six years at the Tildor’s top military academy, sixteen-year-old Renee De Winter is determined to graduate, training day and night to compete with her male classmates. When the boys overpower her parries, she works harder. When a bully sabotages her gear, she fights without it. But when an underground crime group captures her mentor for its illegal gladiatorial games, she must choose between her career and her conscience. Determined to penetrate the group’s inner circles, Renee will leap from academia to the crime filled streets, pick up a sword, and weigh law against loyalty.

And here’s the cover:

What do you think? Are you as excited for it as I am??

    I love the Zipper pouch! :O

    The book cover is amazingly detailed. It looks simple to start off with, but there is a lot of details on the cover.
