Cover Reveal: ELECTED by Rori Shay

Today I get to help with something a little bit awesome!  I'm helping reveal the cover of Rori Shay's ELECTED!

WAIT!  Don't scroll yet!  You want to know a bit about this book.  I promise! 


In the year 2185, Aloy must masquerade as a boy to claim her country's presidential role and save her people.

Aloy’s father is the current Elected, the leader of the country, just as her grandfather and great-grandfather were before. Her older brother should fulfill the role, but he disappeared eighteen years ago. Without an Elected, East Country would fall into civil war. With no one else to take his place, Aloy’s parents cut her hair and told her that she could never be a girl again. To assume the role, she must conceal her gender at all costs. If discovered, she risks execution.

In two weeks, Aloy will turn eighteen and take her father’s place. She hopes to govern as he did, but she is inheriting a different country. The long concealed Technology Faction is boldly stepping out of the shadows and, as turmoil grows within East Country, cryptic threats arrive from beyond their borders. After generations of isolation, Aloy knows nothing about their only neighbor, Mid Country. And, East Country doesn’t have the resources to defend itself.

As she struggles to lead, Aloy maintains her cover by marrying a woman, Vienne, but battles with feelings for Griffin, the boy who knows her secret - the boy who is somehow connected to East Country's upheaval. When assassination attempts add to the turmoil, Aloy doesn’t know whom to trust.

Aloy knows leadership requires sacrifice. She just didn't expect that the sacrifice might be her life.
 
See!  It sounds goooood, huh? 
 
Now for the dramatic reveal...

TADAAA!!!  I love how only part of Aloy's face is showing, leaving her slightly unidentifiable. And the colors give it a dark, almost creepy factor too!
