Cover Release: Hullmetal Girls

Hullmetal Girls er en YA GLBT science fiction der udkommer juli 2018. Jeg faldt over den på en liste over YA 2018-udgivelser, og syntes den løs meget spændende. Dengang var der ikke kommet et cover endnu, men det er der jo så nu. Jeg er ikke rigtig fan, men jeg hader det heller ikke. Meh er nok lidt sådan jeg har det med det. Ville det fange mit blik i en boghandel? Mjaeh, måske, hvis den ikke stod sammen med pænere covers. Men det er bare ikke sådan et cover der får mit til at zoome hen for at tjekke den bog ud.

Den ser jo meget science fiction-agtig ud, og det jo godt nok. Jeg kan godt lide det gear personerne på coveret har på, men jeg synes titlens skrifttype er ret fesen, og så er det der gule lys bare ikke særlig pænt sammen med det blå i den modsatte side.

Bogen udkommer juli 2018, og du kan finde den på Goodreads her, og bagsideteksten herunder.

For fans of Pierce Brown and Rhoda Belleza, here is epic space adventure full of action, heart and two kick-butt heroines.

Aisha Un-Haad would do anything for her family. When her brother contracts a plague, she knows her janitor’s salary isn’t enough to fund his treatment. So she volunteers to become a Scela, a mechanically enhanced soldier sworn to protect and serve the governing body of the Fleet, the collective of starships they call home. If Aisha can survive the harrowing modifications and earn an elite place in the Scela ranks, she may be able to save her brother.

Key Tanaka awakens in a Scela body with only hazy memories of her life before. She knows she’s from the privileged end of the Fleet, but she has no recollection of why she chose to give up a life of luxury to become a hulking cyborg soldier. If she can make it through the training, she might have a shot at recovering her missing past.

In a unit of new recruits vying for top placement, Aisha’s and Key’s paths collide, and the two must learn to work together–a tall order for girls from opposite ends of the Fleet. But a rebellion is stirring, pitting those who yearn for independence from the Fleet against a government struggling to maintain unity.

With violence brewing and dark secrets surfacing, Aisha and Key find themselves questioning their loyalties. They will have to put aside their differences, though, if they want to keep humanity from tearing itself apart.
