THE TOWERING SKY has a cover, and it’s even more dazzling than the last two!
The Thousandth Floor trilogy by Katharine McGee always had glamorous covers, from The Thousandth Floor, which had a golden tower against the black background. From there to The Dazzling Heights, which sported two towers rising up in the mist of fog. Now the cover for the third book, The Towering Sky, is here. The skyscraper look is better than ever!
A famed tower where the story takes place rises up in the middle of the cover, towering over the other buildings. Rays of sunlight can be seen by the sides of the building, making the gold of the cover so much more obvious. The subtitle, “Every rise has a fall,” foreshadows some chilling new twists as the trilogy reaches its conclusion.
Take a look at the cover for The Towering Sky below!
You can also read an excerpt from the book below:
There has always been something otherworldly about the first snow of the year in New York.
It gilds the city’s flaws, its hard edges; transforming Manhattan into a proud, glittering, Northern place. Magic hangs heavy in the air. On the morning of the first snow, even the most jaded New Yorkers pause in the streets to look up at the sky, stilled by a quiet sense of awe. As if every hot summer they forgot that this was possible, and only when the first flakes of snow kiss their faces can they believe in it again.
It feels almost as if the snowfall might wash the city clean, reveal all the monstrous secrets buried beneath its surface.
But then, some secrets are best kept buried.
It was on one of these mornings of cold, enchanted silence that a girl stood on the roof of Manhattan’s enormous skyscraper.
She stepped closer to the edge, and the wind whipped at her hair. Snowflakes danced around her in splintered crystals. Her skin glowed like a hologram in the grey predawn light. If anyone had been up there to see her, they would have said that she looked troubled, and sharply beautiful. And afraid.
