I won’t lie, being @Call_Me_Bookish does come with some perks. One of my favorite things about being Twitter-me is finding out about book news before it gets to everyone else!
This is one of those times.
Check out the picture to your left. Today is the big reveal of Foreign Identity‘s cover art! Ok, so we know that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but we all do it anyway! Covers intrigue, fascinate, and sometimes even scare us!
If you guessed that Foreign Identity is not about princesses and fairies, then you would be correct! (See, the cover is doing its job already!)
“Cold. Confusion. Fear. This is how it all begins.
Waking up without your memory in a cell and bound by chains is terrifying.
Two nameless strangers, a man and a woman, find themselves imprisoned together. With no memories of their own identities, let alone their captor and tormentor, escape is the only option. The pair faces a bizarre labyrinth of rooms and clues that confuse more than they explain. Every discovery only brings more questions.
Who captured them? Why were they taken? What does their captor want from them? What can the riddles mean?
Who are they?
Lacking allies and options, the duo must learn to trust one another. Mazes, puzzles, and even strange, lurking creatures force them to rely on their wits–and each other–for survival. But survival isn’t enough. They need answers.
Will the answers be enough? Will the truth bring them closer together, or drive them forever apart? Will discovering their identities finally bring them home?”
