Okay, so I know I just said no more tours and blasts and reveals, but dude, I love this author.  Besides the fact that she's from Texas, and I lurve my Texas authors, she writes the funny and she's just as hilarious in person, so when I was asked to help share the cover for the first book in her new YA series, I couldn't say no.  Without further ado, behold the cover of Fire and Blood:

Here's the blurb:

In a perilous race across the world, having the best Pandora can be the difference between life and death. 

Sixteen-year-old Tella Holloway isn’t happy. Her mother rushed them out of Boston and into a craptastic house nestled in Middle of Nowhere, Montana. To make matters worse, Tella’s brother is sick, and though a dozen doctors can’t determine the cause, her mother is sure Montana’s “fresh air” will help. Now Tella spends her days being homeschooled, and uses her imagination as entertainment.

But when a small blue box appears on her bed, Tella’s world is rocked. Inside the strange package she finds a white ear bud—and after she fits it into place and touches its blinking button—an unknown voice fills her head. Tella is invited to join the Brimstone Bleed, a race across four ecosystems: desert, sea, mountains, jungle. The voice in Tella’s ear explains she has 48 hours to retrieve her Pandora, an animal genetically designed to help her win.

Tella has never been the sporty type; she’s more a cheerleader than an athlete. But despite her mother’s warnings, she’s determined to compete in the race. And she’ll do anything to win, because if Tella is the Brimstone Bleed victor, she'll be granted a specific gift—the cure to save her brother’s life.

FIRE & FLOOD is a teen thriller set in modern day.

I love that cover!  It's simple but eye-catching, and it leaves a lot to the imagination.  The premise has me intrigued, as well.  This series seems a bit of a departure from her Dante Walker series, and I can't wait to see where Victoria takes this story!  What do you think of the cover and the summary?  Have you read anything by this author yet?


  1. I love the feather on fire! I didn't realize she had a new series so now I'm really excited!

  2. Eeeeekkk!!! It's fabulous!!!! I definitely will need a copy of this pretty for my shelf. Yes, yes I will. :D Thanks for sharing!!

  3. It sort of reminds me of the cover of ANTIGODDESS <3

    1. I thought the same thing...except that feather is dripping blood, I think.

  4. The book sounds neat!! Definitely up my alley. I agree with Lili though the cover reminds me of AntiGoddess.

    1. Yeah, I know her other series probably wasn't your thing, but this one sounds pretty different. Like a paranormal Amazing Race. :P And I agree, too...maybe it's the new trend?

  5. WHOA I want to read this one! Sounds EXCITING. Thanks so much for putting it on my radar!

  6. I've heard such good things about The Collector that Victoria Scott is definitely on my list of authors to watch. I love the font placement and the creepy feel I get from the synopsis (love the concept too! Pandora's box DEFINITELY reimagined), but I'm not a huge fan of the burning feather. I think I've seen that used elsewhere - Antigoddess? Lots of feathers going around on thriller types, it seems.

  7. That's a great cover. Thanks for sharing!
