Cover Reveal: Shadow of the Mark

I know you have probably already seen the cover because I'm a little late in posting this because it got lost in my the abyss of my email!  But I thought I would post it anyway just so we can stare at the beauty some more!
So here is some stuff about the cover...
I know, there's no mistaking it. This is definitely a Carrier Series  
cover, but that was the intention. After the amazing reception to the  
cover of Carrier of the Mark, HarperCollins wanted Shadow's cover to  
be instantly recognizable. And it is, but the new darker color palette  
  reflects the darker tone that this installment brings, and the pink  
and purple really make it pop. I love it and think HarperCollins have  
done another amazing job. I hope you like it too.

Life for Megan Rosenberg just got a lot more complicated.

While she evoked the air element, and her feelings for Adam
intensified, a web of lies, deceit, and betrayal has been spun around  
her.  With the Order tightening its hold, and the
reinstatement of the Mark Knights, Megan has more questions than  
answers as the
Marked Ones grow in strength.

New people arouse suspicion, the DeRises start behaving
strangely, and Megan begins to unravel a destiny shrouded in mystery.  
  It?s a destiny the Order has struggled to hide,
and a destiny someone from the past?far in the past, has already laid  
claim to.

Alliances will be made, and friends will be lost, as the
Order?s dark secrets are revealed by the very thing they sought to destroy.

Doesn't that sound AMAZING!?!
What do you think about the cover and blurb?!

Now a little bit about the amazing author that created all this...

I started out life in South Africa. A year later
my parents moved home to Dublin, Ireland. When I was older and realized my
parents had moved me from exotic Durban, to sedate Rathfarnham, Dublin 16, I
was rightly ticked off.

Giving up lions for sheep, I grew up in the foothills of
the Dublin Mountains where I went to a convent school and had to contend with
uniforms, gabardines, and nuns. When not dodging the beady glare of  
the Sisters
of Mercy, I was devouring every book I could get my hands on.

I traveled all over Europe while working in banking and
treasury, but I gave up my calculator in favor of a keyboard and haven?t
stopped writing since. My first book, Carrier of the Mark, was published by
HarperTeen in 2011.

Our home is in Cork in the south of Ireland, but we?re currently on loan
to Massachusetts in the US where I continue to write books about  
magic, ghosts,
and romance, with a bit of Irish flavor.
