The Chosen Ones: Cover Reveal!

I like to think of it as my half-birthday present:

May I just say that I honestly love this cover. I honestly love you...

When you sign up to be a part of a reveal, you never know what you'll get, but I 'wowed' upon opening up this file. 

Now for the best part, the summary! Read it and weep out of need-to-read, then go ADD IT TO YOUR GOODREADS SHELF!

What if you were mankind’s last chance at survival?

Sixteen-year-old Tess lives in a compound in what was once the Western United States, now decimated after a devastating fourth World War. But long before that, life as we knew it had been irrevocably changed, as women mysteriously lost the ability to bring forth life. Faced with the extinction of the human race, the government began the Council of Creators, meant to search out alternative methods of creating life. The resulting artificial human beings, or Chosen Ones, were extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly. 

Life is bleak, but uncomplicated for Tess as she follows the rigid rules of her dystopian society, until the day she begins work at Templeton, the training facility for newly created Chosen Ones. There, she meets James, a Chosen One whose odd love of music and reading rivals only her own. The attraction between the two is immediate in its intensity—and overwhelming in its danger. 

But there is more to the goings-on at Templeton than Tess ever knew, and as the veil is lifted from her eyes, she uncovers a dark underground movement bent not on taking down the Chosen Ones, but the Council itself. Will Tess be able to stand up to those who would oppress her, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life?

Have you ever heard of Elizabeth May? She's a writer, but she also does photos for book covers by trade. They are all the cover love you could ever need!!
