Before I reveal my piece of the puzzle, here’s just a bit about The Infinity Courts: “Pitched as Warcross meets Black Mirror, the book follows a Japanese American teen who finds herself in Infinity, a world in which the human consciousness goes after death, where she battles an AI entity posing as a queen that’s hacked its way into the afterlife with the plan to take over and control everything. Publication for the first book is set for spring 2021.”
Add The Infinity Courts to your Goodreads shelf!
And here’s my piece of the puzzle!
I know it’s just one little piece, but can we take a moment to admire it? I’m obsessed with the deep, rich shades of magenta, and the soft glowing effect! If you’ve seen some of the previously revealed pieces, you know it’s definitely a different vibe than the covers of Akemi’s contemporary books. I’m so happy that Akemi is getting a beautiful, awe-worthy cover for her sci-fi debut!
The full cover is absolutely stunning & I cannot wait for everyone to see the final reveal. I’m already picturing how gorgeous The Infinity Courts will look on my bookshelf.
Be sure to visit Akemi’s Instagram to find out where to go for the next puzzle pieces! And if you haven’t already, add The Infinity Courts to your Goodreads shelf.
And don’t forget to visit Akemi’s website on June 25th for the final cover reveal! Best of luck to those of you participating in the scavenger hunt.
