Hello all. I’m participating in the cover reveal for a new Penguin title, The Cadet of Tildor. The book releases from Dial Books for Young Readers on January 10, 2013 and is written by Alex Lidell.
Synopsis: Having already survived six years at the Tildor’s top military academy, sixteen-year-old Renee De Winter is determined to graduate, training day and night to compete with her male classmates. When the boys overpower her parries, she works harder. When a bully sabotages her gear, she fights without it. But when an underground crime group captures her mentor for its illegal gladiatorial games, she must choose between her career and her conscience. Determined to penetrate the group’s inner circles, Renee will leap from academia to the crime filled streets, pick up a sword, and weigh law against loyalty.
…and without further adieu… the cover.
I love that it’s going to stand out among all of the Young Adult fantasy covers coming out at that time. Well played, Penguin, well played.
