‘OtherEarth’ cover reveal: The ‘Otherworld’ sequel promises a new adventure

We’ve got the cover for Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller’s highly anticipated Otherworld sequel, OtherEarth.

We can’t wait to jump back into Simon and Kat’s world of virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and corporate conspiracies. When we last saw our favorite characters, they had gotten themselves into a lot of trouble with the Company, who’s behind the highly addictive and equally problematic “Otherworld” virtual reality technology.

It looks like we’ll be picking up right where we left off in the sequel, OtherEarth. Here’s the synopsis for the second book in the trilogy:

Simon saved his best friend, Kat, from the clutches of the Company and their high-tech VR gaming experience, Otherworld. But it was at a steep price. Now he, Kat, and their friend Busara are on the run. They know too much. About the Company’s dark secrets. About the real-life consequences of playing Otherworld. And about Kat’s stepfather’s involvement in everything. The group is headed to New Mexico to find Simon’s old roommate, who is a tech genius and possibly the only person who can help them reveal the truth about the Company to the world before it’s too late.

We heard so much about Simon’s roommate in Otherworld, it’ll be great to finally meet him. He’s responsible for Simon getting kicked out of school and he’s helped him out of some tough spots before, but we’ll have to see if he still feels indebted to him in OtherEarth. Maybe his roommate will become part of the team, or maybe Simon’s asked for one favor too many.

OtherEarth will be released on October 30, 2018, but luckily, we get to reveal the cover right now. Here it is!

This should keep our appetites satisfied for all the dystopian goodness for a little while. The OtherEarth cover is done in the same style as its predecessor, shown below.

While the cover of the first book in the series is very clearly not part of our reality, the cover for OtherEarth depicts a city skyline, which could either indicate the real world or a city in the Otherworld virtual reality. The picture is less distorted than in the first installment, but the building on the top does appear unrealistically tall. Even the title could hint toward a sequel to the virtual game, or the “earth” reference could mean that it will be more rooted on our physical planet.

Also, where the framing component of the image on the Otherworld cover is pristine, it appears burned and cracked on the OtherEarth cover. This could indicate that things are continuing to fall apart in the virtual reality.

We’ll have to wait to find out, but until October 30, 2018, you can preorder OtherEarth from Amazon, Penguin Random House and Google Play.
