Today is the cover reveal for Exodus 2022 by Kenneth G. Bennett. One of my online friends, Vanya from the YA storyteller helped organising this cover reveal. If you are interested you can still sign-up for the blog tour here. It doesn’t sound like a book I would read, but the blurb does sounds intriguing. Okay let me show you the cover first, then there is some info about the book and a giveaway :).
Not sure whether I liek this cover or not. It’s simple, I like that. The weird lines are weird. It also seems to be a bit too simple. It doesn’t tell you much about the story, except that it’s going to be weird? And maybe about a pier. Or maybe the pier doesn’t have to do anything with the story and it’s more symbolic. I guess at least it makes you wonder what the story is about and what the relevance is from the cover.

Joe Stanton is in agony. Out of his mind over the death of his young daughter. Or so it seems.
Unable to contain his grief, Joe loses control in public, screaming his daughter’s name and causing a huge scene at a hotel on San Juan Island in Washington State. Thing is, Joe Stanton doesn’t have a daughter. Never did. And when the authorities arrive they blame the 28-year-old’s outburst on drugs.
What they don’t yet know is that others up and down the Pacific coast—from the Bering Sea to the Puget Sound—are suffering identical, always fatal mental breakdowns.
With the help of his girlfriend—the woman he loves and dreams of marrying—Joe struggles to unravel the meaning of the hallucination destroying his mind. As the couple begins to perceive its significance—and Joe’s role in a looming global calamity—they must also outwit a billionaire weapons contractor bent on exploiting Joe’s newfound understanding of the cosmos, and outlast the time bomb ticking in Joe’s brain.
You can add Exodus 2022 to your to-read list on Goodreads.
