Valley of Death #3
Genre: YA Thriller
Release Date: February 14th, 2017
Captured by the Elites and held in their most secure facility, Payton holds tight to the hope of escape, if only to keep her sanity. But the director of the facility is hell-bent on breaking her reserve to never kill again. He does everything in his power to force her cooperation and crush her hope of ever escaping the Elite’s clutches. With the belief she’ll never see her family or Conner again, she wonders more every day whether she should stop caring and give in to the killer she was trained to be.
When her true purpose comes to light, an unlikely ally urges her to hold true to her belief and cling to her compassion. But right and wrong become blurred in her reality when every choice she makes appears to cause pain.
In this final installment of the Valley of Death series, Payton is faced with unthinkable decisions that could forever change her, no matter if she chooses to save those she cares most for or add another death to her tally-board.
Sooooo, after seeing the covers for books 1 and 2, one wonders where book 3 went wrong. It’s not a bad cover by any means, but it feels… Out of place in the series =( I wasn’t a fan of the way the designer colored just some of the letters on the title and author writings and, while the message is quite clear about he whole rain deal, it feels more like blood rain and I don’t get many desert at all =( If I had to rate this cover, it would be 3 stars: I can look at it, but it has a lot of room for improvement.
For what I liked: WHITE AND RED, PEOPLE! Black and red are actually my favorite colors, so you splash them with a little white AND SEE ME GO CRAZY *—* And, of course, I loved the font used, despite the weird letter coloring thing 😉
