Ravage: Cover & Summary!

All right Deviants readers, you’ve been waiting patiently and now I can finally share the cover and summary for the third book in the trilogy, RAVAGE. I gave a sneak peak last week on Twitter and Facebook, but this is the first time you’ll get to read where the story is going next. Be warned: If you haven’t read VESPER or HAVOC yet, you might want to skip the summary — it’s spoiler-tastic!

Ravage: A Deviants Novel

RAVAGE: A Deviants Novel

The war against BioZenith is on.

Since she first came into her mysterious new superpowers, Emily has watched one of her packmates disappear through an interdimensional portal; she’s been hunted by creepy, body-snatching Shadowmen; she’s managed to form an alliance with the same telekinetic cheerleaders who once tried to take her down; and she’s discovered that her believed-to-be-dead mother is one of the BioZenith scientists responsible for her strange abilities.

Now it’s up to the Deviants to put together the last pieces of the puzzle, which includes tracking down the final, mystery member of their kind and forcing their parents to reveal why they mutated their own children. Emily fears the answer is far more sinister than anyone ever thought: after all, why would a parent risk a child’s life unless the stakes were high…scary, world-ending high?

Tired of being at the mercy of adult conspiracies, Emily forms a plan with the other Deviants: Destroy BioZenith before anyone can use the knowledge within the facility to aid the Shadowmen. But that’s only if BioZenith—or something worse—doesn’t capture them first.

I adore this cover! Ali Smith and the Balzer+Bray design team did a fabulous job. I think it’s especially cool how Emily is now facing opposite how she was on book one, with her hair up in a ponytail to show she means business! As for the book itself, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again–shiz gets crazy. The book is the longest of the three at 400 pages and there’s plenty of twists and turns to be had before you reach the final pages.

RAVAGE will be available in hardcover and as an ebook January 2013!

    Hi Bethany! I don’t think it sounds immature at all :) Spencer and Emily have lots of scenes together in Ravage, so you might just get your wish….

    Never mind about that question, but how can it be there’s still so many unanswered questions like what happened to Emily’s mom, and where did Casey go? PLEASE DON’T LET IT END LIKE THIS!! :(

    Sadly it is the last book. I wanted to do more, and may be able to do so someday, but the books didn’t sell well and so the publisher isn’t going to continue publishing the series. I tried to wrap up as many open ended questions as I could without it bogging down the third book in exposition.

    If it helps at all, Emily’s mom is essentially stuck in the other dimension forever and will do her best to make a life with Tracie’s dad. I never intended to rescue her, really, though if I’d had more books I’d have let Emily communicate with her in some fashion. And Casey is with the remnants of the Akhakhu cult, having lost her sisters and parents and having nowhere else to go.

    Sorry again that there’s no more at this point, I’m right there with you wishing this wasn’t the last one :( There just wasn’t really an audience, so I got canceled, to put it in TV terms.

    I just finished reading your series in one-shot! I’m so sad that 1) I only just discovered it and 2) it’s already over! I can’t believe that there’s no more books in the series. While Ravage did wrap up most of the most impending plot points, you did leave us with enough tidbits to merit more books [like the question of other children having been engineered - why? how? when? in what way?? will Emily+co find them?].

    I really loved Ravage. It flowed perfectly. Any more in it and I think it would’ve suffered. That being said, I hope you can one day do another novel in the series. Or several. I can think of several adventures and possible routes the group could take and I hope you get to explore some of them in the future =)

    Hi Cassie!

    Sorry for taking so long to approve and reply to your comment, it was buried in a mountain of spam. But thanks for letting me know you liked Ravage! I did originally intend for the series to have many more books past this initial three-book storyline, so I definitely had ideas in place for the other “vespers” and what their powers would be. But the series didn’t sell well enough for the publisher to ask for more, so I had to try and mostly wrap it up in Ravage. I hope one day I can write more in the series, too — although even if I can’t, I’m glad to know you thought Ravage flowed nicely as an ending :)
