When LM Preston told me she was releasing a new cover for The Pack, I was thrilled. This is a great book and the new cover just draws fabulous attention to the whole series. Now in case you haven't been lucky enough to read the series yet, here is a little more about it:
Shamira is considered an outcast by most, but little do they know that she is on a mission. Kids on Mars are disappearing, but Shamira decides to use the criminals most unlikely weapons against them the very kids of which they have captured. In order to succeed, she is forced to trust another, something she is afraid to do. However, Valens, her connection to the underworld of her enemy, proves to be a useful ally. Time is slipping, and so is her control on the power that resides within her. But in order to save her brother's life, she is willing to risk it all.
The book has been called "A treasure for scifi readers" by the Midwest Reviews.
LM Preston was nice enough to share a little excerpt from the book:
“Hmm… I guess the handicap girl can’t find her way. Want some help? Need a seeing eye dog?” Kim asked loudly and with a sarcastic inflection in her voice. She spoke to her like she was born deaf.
“I can hear just fine, Kim. How about you?” Shamira replied loudly like Kim. She couldn’t help herself. Playing weak was getting harder and harder the stronger the power grew inside of her.
The energy around her changed again when Kim and her other two friends pushed her between them. Shamira stood in the middle of the circle and tried to appear off balance. Although, when Kim spat on her, the dam of her control broke, and Shamira decided she would play the invalid no more. She punched Kim lightly on the chin and then back-kicked her taller friend Megan in the chest. Megan fell to the ground.
Shamira barely held her anger at bay while she remembered all the times she had allowed them to beat her up just so she could keep her secret abilities hidden. She held Kim firmly by the neck, careful not to choke her. Figuring she would be gentle with Kim, unlike Kim was with her. She felt the air shift when Kim’s friend Shannon tried to run away. Shamira threw all pretense of gentleness away and slammed Kim down with the hand that she held firmly to Kim’s neck in order to quickly pull at Shannon’s flapping braid.
