Map of Fates, book two of the Conspiracy of Us trilogy, has a cover!
For those who have read The Conspiracy of Us this past January and are looking forward to the next book, Map of Fates, will be happy to see that the sequel now has a cover!
Author Maggie Hall talks about her excitement of the cover and its symbolism as well as how it relates to the main protagonist, Avery West.
First, we have the spiral staircase. It looks like what Avery finds out about the Circle and her place in it: the conspiracy just keeps going deeper. And although you see the staircase spiraling down as far as you can see, I love that Avery is running up.
I also see a clear transformation in Avery from the book 1 cover to here. On the Conspiracy cover, she looks wary — like she’s just starting to understand that something’s not right. On Map of Fates, she’s active.
She goes on to talk about Avery and some of the other people in the story, so beware of *Spoilers* in the following:
Besides Avery’s transformation, one of my favorite parts about Map of Fates is that you get to see far more of the world with Avery, Jack, Stellan, and their crew of friends — from palaces in India to the bustling streets of London, their quest crosses the globe. And as they do so, you’ll meet many more Circle families. You’ll learn things about characters that will shock you, and dive deeper and deeper into the conspiracy. Romantic entanglements keep growing and changing, and relationships — both romantic and not—evolve in ways you might not expect. And of course, as she becomes immersed in the world of the Circle, Avery never stops fighting to keep her loved ones safe, to preserve her own freedom — and to follow her heart.
Sounds like fun! But if you haven’t read the first book, Conspiracy of Us, that’s out now in hardcover and e-book format. The paperback version of Conspiracy of Us will be published on February 2, 2016, and the expected publication of Map of Fates will be March 8, 2016.
Synopsis for Map of Fates:
Two weeks. That’s how long it took for Avery West’s ordinary life to change forever: In two weeks, she discovered she was heiress to a powerful secret society known as the Circle, learned her mother was taken hostage by the Circle’s enemies, and fell for the last boy she should ever love.
Now, Avery crosses oceans in private jets to hunt for clues that will uncover the truth about the Circle, setting her mom and herself free. By her side are Jack—steady, loyal, and determined to help her even at the expense of his own duty—and Stellan, whose connection to Avery grows stronger by the day, making her question what she believes at every turn.
At the end of a desperate hunt from the islands of Greece to the red carpet atCannes comes a discovery that could bring the entire world to its knees. And now Avery is forced to face the truth: in the world of the Circle, no one is what they seem.
