Cover Alert: Cruel Summer by James Dawson.

If you loved Hollow Pike, you'll be very excited to hear that James Dawson has another book coming out soon.  Cruel Summer releases August 1st 2013. Described as a racy teen thriller that fans of Christopher Pike (me!!) will love, Cruel Summer sounds all kinds of awesome and I cannot wait to read it!  

Take a look at the newly released cover below, and let me know what you think!

Cruel Summer by James Dawson || Publication date: August 2013.

Ryan is looking forward to spending the summer with his old school friends at Katie’s luxurious Spanish villa. He hasn’t seen the gang since their friend, Janey, committed suicide a year ago. He hopes this summer they’ll be able to put the past behind them and move on – until someone else arrives, claiming to have proof that Janey’s suicide was murder – and it’s only a matter of time until her killer strikes again… 

Ryan was hoping for sun, sea and sand. Suddenly, he’s facing a long, hot summer of death, drama and deceit


  1. Hmmmm. It's not what I was expecting. I kinda like how, at first, it looks like a typical summer shot, but then you realise that the girl could actually be dead. Kinda cool. I didn't expect a male narrator either, I think that will be interesting

  2. There is something about that cover that is super creepy! It looks like something is going to grab her. 

  3. Fab cover! I loved Hollow Pike, and am a big fan of Christopher Pike's books, so definitely looking forward to this one.

  4. Ohhh- it sounds like a darker summer read and one that would probably be great to read on vacation. I love that cover!  

  5. Oooh! I haven't read Hollow Pike but I really love the sound of this especially because I love teen thrillers. I like the cover but would probably pick it up expecting an easy beach read until reading the tag line!

  6.  Not what I was expecting either - but I kinda like that! Oh yeah - male narrator should be interesting. I can't wait to read this one! :)

  7.  You should check out Hollow Pike - I had a fab time reading it at Halloween last year! :)

  8. It looks like a movie poster and I really like it! I would pick this book up. :)

    Ps: OMG, I seriously do not like the new UK covers for Firelight. Those are terrible! Thanx for sharing.

  9. Sounds dark, I'm all for that!  The cover is different, would grab my attention and make me read the blurb.
