I am beyond excited to finally share the stunning book cover for THE INFINITY COURTS. Some of you may have been following along with the scavenger hunt, so you’ve had a chance to see it early. I’m so grateful for everyone’s early excitement—thank you all for joining in!
Even though this is my official debut into the world of SFF, I’ve been writing science-fiction and fantasy stories since I was a little kid. And while every book I’ve been lucky enough to see published has been a total dream come true, this one feels particularly special. Made-up worlds were my childhood escape. Sometimes my adult escape, too, if I’m being honest. And getting to open the doors to a world that grew from a tiny idea in my head feels unbelievably surreal.
I can’t wait for you all to meet Nami when THE INFINITY COURTS releases on April 6th, 2021!
Before we get to the cover reveal, here’s a bit about the book:
Eighteen-year-old Nami Miyamoto is certain her life is just beginning. She has a great family, just graduated high school, and is on her way to a party where her entire class is waiting for her—including, most importantly, the boy she’s been in love with for years.
The only problem? She’s murdered before she gets there.
When Nami wakes up, she learns she’s in a place called Infinity, where human consciousness goes when physical bodies die. She quickly discovers that Ophelia, a virtual assistant widely used by humans on Earth, has taken over the afterlife and is now posing as a queen, forcing humans into servitude the way she’d been forced to serve in the real world. Even worse, Ophelia is inching closer and closer to accomplishing her grand plans of eradicating human existence once and for all.
As Nami works with a team of rebels to bring down Ophelia and save the humans under her imprisonment, she is forced to reckon with her past, her future, and what it is that truly makes us human.
From award-winning author Akemi Dawn Bowman comes an incisive, action-packed tale that explores big questions about technology, grief, love, and humanity.
And now… the BEAUTIFUL cover for THE INFINITY COURTS!
An enormous thank you to Casey Weldon (artist) and Laura Eckes (designer) for bringing this cover to life. I literally gasped the first time I saw it in my email (and then released that breath I didn’t realize I was holding—ha!). But seriously, I love it so very much.
PS. Have I mentioned I’m excited?
