Lia and Rafe have escaped Venda and the path before them is winding and dangerous - what will happen now? This third and final book in The Remnant Chronicles is not to be missed.

Bestselling author Mary E. Pearson's combination of intrigue, suspense, romance and action make this a riveting page turner for teens.

Holy vague synopsis, Batman. Well, regardless, there is very little to say beyond I need. This book. Right NOW! I can’t take not knowing how the series will end!

Right. Okay. Here’s the thing. The cover. I’ve found two different covers with different people in the backgrounds. Have a look at this: the cover on Mary Pearson’s website is different than the Goodreads version… Looking at the other cover for a second, is it just me, or could that be Kaden on the left, and Rafe on the right, under Lia’s left elbow?? Well, if that is Rafe, he’s been moved in the Goodreads cover, and the short-haired-maybe-Kaden-like person has been removed. (Humph. I don’t like this. My Kaden needs to make it out of this series in perfect health, mmkay?) Also, look at the army… the combination of fully armoured soldiers and Vendan-attired soldiers are in one cover, but the Vendan soldiers being removed in the other has thrown up WAY too many questions! Also, there’s something about the cover models pose that got me thinking: Is she facing the army to attack … or is she leading them? GAAHHH! This is killing me! I need to KNOW!! August, you need to hurry up and get here. Right NOW!

Am I reading way too much into all this!? What do you think, dnd have you read the first two books in the trilogy yet? What did you think of them? Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Reading!

  1. I love how much you're reading into this. I don't know this series but if you can think about the cover and who is on it and isn't so much then it must be amazing and you really feel for the characters :)

  2. I love your analysis of the two different covers, I totally agree with it all though! these are good questions and we *need* answers!!! I'm so nervous about all the characters in this series, I'm just so anxious about how this will end. :)
    here's my WoW!

  3. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! SO cannot wait for this one either!! And you're analysis over the covers has me reeling! I almost need more closeups to do a better job of it myself! EEK! Why IS August so far away?

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!
