We’re exclusively revealing the cover for The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman, and if the story is anything like the imagery on the front of the book, we’re in luck!
Promising the character-driven drama of Riverdale and the creepiness of the Upside Down from Stranger Things, The Devouring Gray is a contemporary fantasy that follows a group of teens with chilling secrets and unnatural power who must battle a monster to save their town.
The cover seems like a perfect fit. Check it out below:
Of the cover, the author says, “When this cover first landed in my inbox, I was completely blown away. There’s so much depth to this design, from the very significant objects in each corner to the way it plays with perspective. I’m obsessed with the color palette, that incredible silver texture on the title, and the overall vibe — it’s the kind of cover that basically demands you take a closer look. This emphasis on a forest where there’s far more going on than immediately meets the eye is a perfect representation of how I see The Devouring Gray, and I’m so thrilled to share it with you all.”
The official synopsis for The Devouring Gray reads:
After the death of her sister, Violet Saunders finds herself dragged to Four Paths, New York. Violet may be a newcomer, but she learns her mother isn’t: they belong to one of the revered founding families of the town. Yet the secret to controlling her family’s magic is lost, and without it, she will not survive the Gray.
Justin Hawthorne’s bloodline has protected Four Paths for generations from the Gray. After Justin fails to inherit his family’s powers, his mother is determined to keep this humiliation a secret. But Justin can’t let go of the future he was promised and the town he swore to protect.
Ever since Harper Carlisle lost her hand to an accident that left her stranded in the Gray for days, she has vowed revenge on the person who abandoned her: Justin Hawthorne. There are ripples of dissent in Four Paths, and Harper seizes an opportunity to take down the Hawthornes and change her destiny—to what extent, even she doesn’t yet know.
All three must band together with the other Founders to unearth the dark truths behind their families’ abilities before the Gray devours them all. Swoon-worthy romances—with strong LGBT representation—abound, and readers will fall hard for their favorite haunted star-crossed couples.
