Cover reveal: The Body Electric by Beth Revis

I'm proud to announce that I was among the few people to discover 'The Body Electric' before its cover, or full blurb. I've never read something of Beth Revis, yet for some reason this book caught my attention, so I quickly added it to my to-read books on Goodreads. It's known that the cover was going to be released on the first of August, so that's kind of the reason I'm writing something different today. To spread the word of a new book with possibly lots of potential: The Body Electric by Beth Revis, which will be released October 2014.


     Blade Runner meets Total Recall in this exciting new sci fi adventure!
     The future world is at peace.

     Ella Shepherd has dedicated her life to using her unique gift—the ability to enter people’s      
     dreams and memories using technology developed by her mother—to help others relive their 
     happy memories.

     But not all is at it seems.

     Ella starts seeing impossible things—images of her dead father, warnings of who she cannot 
     trust. Her government recruits her to spy on a rebel group, using her ability to experience—
     and influence—the memories of traitors. But the leader of the rebels claims they used to be in 
     love—even though Ella’s never met him before in her life. Which can only mean one thing…

     Someone’s altered her memory.

     Ella’s gift is enough to overthrow a corrupt government or crush a growing rebel group. She 
     is the key to stopping a war she didn’t even know was happening. But if someone else has 
     been inside Ella’s head, she cannot trust her own memories, thoughts, or feelings.

     So who can she trust?

Nothing can surpass the beauty of the original 'Across the Universe' covers, but I really like the sight of this one. The fact that the title is set on the girl's head probably has something to do with her unique gift, as that the background refers to the futuristic and high-tech setting. The same goes for the portraits of the two main characters, Ella and Jack. The symbolic meaning of those two portraits, however, is something that I still haven't figured out yet.

To round it up, here are some facts you probably need to know before reading:

  1. This book is written between contracted ones and is going to be self-published.
  2. There will be both print and e-editions available.
  3. It doesn't take place in America.
  4. Ella Shepherd's name comes from the title of Beth Revis's favourite Philip K. Dick.
  5. Amy and Elder, the two main characters of the 'Across the Universe' trilogy, are not in this book. Yet if you look closely, you'll see some hints of their story.
  6. Jack was named after Captain Jack Harkness on Doctor Who.
  7. This book is a standalone, so don't worry about a possible cliffhanger.
