LIFELESS by AdriAnne Strickland – Cover Reveal and Giveaway

If you’ve heard of WORDLESS by AdriAnne Strickland, you’ll be excited to hear I’ve got a special surprise for you: the cover for its sequel, LIFELESS! It’s very similar, yet very different at the same time, and striking! Read on for the synopsis (DO NOT read unless you’ve read WORDLESS), the cover, and a giveaway!

WARNING! Contains major spoilers for WORDLESS, Book One of the Words Made Flesh series:

When Tavin Barnes escaped Eden City with Khaya, the Word of Life, he went from being a wordless trash collector to the world’s most wanted fugitive overnight. His instantaneous rise to infamy was no great surprise considering the Words Made Flesh, Khaya included, were the basis of Eden City’s tremendous political power. What he never expected, when finally captured, was to be punished with the ultimate curse: becoming the next Word of Death.

With his new power, Tavin can kill with a touch, and Eden City’s leadership now expects him to behave like the elite assassin he is–whether he wants to or not. The luxuries of life as a Word are little consolation, since Tavin knows he’s only a glorified prisoner and he fears Khaya, wherever she is, will never look at him again once she finds out how much blood is on his hands. To save himself and the world from the Eden City’s plots, he must rely on his wits, his fellow Words, and the death-touch he’s still learning to control… if it doesn’t destroy him first.
