Giveaways Smugglerific Cover

A Smugglerific Cover: Starglass by Phoebe North (& Giveaway)

Today, we are thrilled to host a cover reveal for one of our very favorite people, Phoebe North – you may know her as an avid reviewer and blogger (in addition to running her own blog, she’s one of the intrepid duo behind The Intergalactic Academy), but she’s also an author whose YA science fiction novel Starglass debuts next year! We are beyond honored and thrilled to host Phoebe’s cover reveal for Starglass, an epic tale of rebellion set on a generation spaceship. Without further ado, BEHOLD! The Smugglerific Cover!


Front Cover

Full Jacket


Terra has never known anything but life aboard the Asherah, a city-within-a-spaceship that left Earth five hundred years ago in search of refuge. At sixteen, working a job that doesn’t interest her, and living with a grieving father who only notices her when he’s yelling at her, Terra is sure that there has to be more to life than what she’s got.

But when she inadvertently witnesses the captain’s guard murdering an innocent man, Terra is suddenly thrust into the dark world beneath the Asherah’s idyllic surface. As she’s drawn into a secret rebellion determined to restore power to the people, Terra discovers that her choices may determine life or death for the people she cares most about. With mere months to go before landing on the long-promised planet, Terra has to make the choice of a lifetime–one that will determine the fate of her people.


An author’s first cover is a scary thing–I was having nightmares for weeks about covers that featured whitewashed characters; my heroine, Terra, wedged into a pretty dress and dead; or cover elements that completely obscured the fact that Starglass is a steamy helping of science fiction. My hands shook as I opened the email from my editor, the inimitable Navah Wolfe. My first reaction was stunned silence. I liked it. In fact, I LOVED it. I didn’t know that was really allowed. I thought nightmare first cover experiences were required!

I love how the cover designer, Lucy Ruth Cummins, so perfectly captured many elements of the story. We have Terra, a botanist, surrounded by curling vines, staring out of one of the ship’s windows and down onto Zehava, the goldilocks planet her people have traveled five hundred years to reach. She’s dressed in the heavy winter coat and boots that she wears throughout the book (I can’t be the only one who wants her coat!), her long, unruly hair whipping about in the ship’s artificial wind. All of these cover elements are accurate and pretty striking!

But what I love most about the cover is how clearly science fictional it is. The font choices evoke classic sci-fi movie posters. The purple planet is a sure sign that this is a story that’s not set on Earth. It reminds me of the book covers I loved as a kid–illustrated covers by Michael Whelan and the Hildebrandt brothers that promised to take me to another world. I hope this cover does the same for readers–and that the story inside lives up to that promise for them!


We are giving away one ARC of Starglass to a lucky winner! The giveaway is open to ALL and to enter, use the form below. The contest will run until Sunday September 30 at 12:01AM (EST). Good luck!

    For strictly YA, Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan is pretty awesome. But the Young Miles books by Lois McMaster Bujold, which were written before YA was a genre but are about a damaged, awesome, fantastic character coming of age in a superbly developed universe, will always be my favourites.

    Ender’s game (OS Card)

  • Nikki Egerton

  • Megan @ Bookworm in Love

  • R. Wheadon
    September 19, 2012 at 5:20 am

    Although it’s not YA, Karin Lowachee’s Warchild is brilliant(!!) and rekindled my (undying) love for sci-fi.

  • Hannah @ Once Upon A Time
    September 19, 2012 at 5:36 am

    MY favourite YA Sci-Fi novel is Cicada by Belle Whittington. Love how she’s made aliens feel magical, created a lovely romance and an intriguing conflict. LOVE.

  • EllieO
    September 19, 2012 at 5:38 am

    Currently, my favourite’s Partials by Dan Wells – it’s not space opera, but I’m pretty sure it’s got enough robots to count as sci-fi.

    Divergent by Veronica Roth.

  • Megan

    Hmm…do Katie Waitman’s novels “Merro Tree” and “The Divided” count as YA? Probably not, but they were my favorite SF novels when I was a teenager!

  • Phoebe
    September 19, 2012 at 6:26 am

    I am just commenting to say that Megan, they DEFINITELY count because “The Merro Tree” was my favorite book as a teenager, too! (So happy when people have heard of it!)

  • Anne M Leone
    September 19, 2012 at 6:38 am

    Ohhh… I only know Phoebe from Intergalatic Academy, but the book sounds awesome! Yay! My fav sci-fi read is more space opera (I know, sorry!). It’s The Lost King by Margaret Weis.

  • Natasa
    September 19, 2012 at 6:38 am

    Hmmm, either Angelfall by Susan Ee or The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa.

  • Courtney Dee

    Since I first read it in high school, Ender’s Game remains my favorite book. I’m also really looking forward to the conclusion to the Across the Universe series.

  • mary anne
    September 19, 2012 at 6:52 am

    As a young adult I loved Anne McAffrey’s books – the Pern books – especially the Harper Hall ones. And I think at least the first two counted as young adult.

  • Cait H.
    September 19, 2012 at 6:55 am

    Ender’s Game will always remain my favourite, but the Across the Universe series by Beth Revis is definitely up there. Thanks for the giveaway!

    September 19, 2012 at 7:45 am

    I still really really love POLYMER by Sally Rogers-Davidson, which I first read when I was about 17 (and re-read and re-read …). That was back in the day when YA got mostly really ugly covers – oh they were okay at the time, but compared to today they look so daggy!

  • Imel Cullen

    My favorite YA SF is probably Patrick Ness’ Chaos Walking trilogy, beginning with THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO.

    It’s more MG than YA, but I love Ender’s Game. Across the Universe if awesome too!

    Diana Wynne Jones, The Homeward Bounders.

  • Ashleigh
    September 19, 2012 at 10:13 am

    Oh gosh, my favorite YA sci-fi… I have a difficult time with YA sci-fi, but Spark by Amy Kathleen Ryan is probably my favorite. It outshined its prequel Glow and made me glad I decided to give the series a second chance.

    Congrats to Phoebe on that fabulous cover and her publication path moving along so well! So pretty…

  • Jessica Silverstein

    I loved Across the Universe too, but I’m not sure what we’re counting here. Does The Giver count? Because that would probably have to top the list.

  • Megan S.
    September 19, 2012 at 11:58 am

    Stellar cover!

    As for favorite YA science fiction, I have to go with A Wrinkle in Time. And this wasn’t the question, but my favorite MG science fiction, back when I was in elementary school, was the My Teacher is an Alien series. Lots of fun.

  • April Books & Wine
    September 19, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    Easy question! My favorite YA science fiction novel is The Knife Of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness, bring on ALL OF THE FEELINGS AND ALL OF THE SOBBING!!

  • Alexa V

  • Heidi

    Oooh, I had this whole bias against SF until quite recently. I was always a strait fantasy girl, but I’ve started to embrace SF a bit more. I’m going to have to say A Long, Long Sleep, which isn’t really hard SciFi, but it’s still in there and I loved it.

  • Andrea Chettle
    September 19, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    Fantastic cover I’ve never heard of this book but the cover grabbed my interest and now I really want to read it. My favourite sci-fi book has to be Andra by Louise Lawrence

  • Lindsey (A Storm of Words)

  • Lark
    September 19, 2012 at 4:28 pm

    My favorite YA SF is … well, it depends on how you define SF. If you count the Pern novels as SF (McCaffrey did), then hands down, it’s Dragonsong and Dragonsinger, because the two are inseparable in my mind. But I will admit that they do read more like fantasy.

    If A Wrinkle in Time is YA rather than MG, it tops even the Harper Hall books.

    And Ender’s Game blew me away when I first read it as a novella.

  • Catie (The Readventurer)
    September 19, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    I guess I don’t have too many YA sci-fi favorites – I’m excited that there are more real YA sci-fi novels getting published recently (and more to come, it seems).

    I do love A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle and Rite of Passage by Alexei Panshin.

    Gorgeous cover, Phoebe!

  • Barbara Elness

    Great heavens. I can’t answer such a question. I’m too much of a sci-fi nerd. I just can’t!

  • Michelle Schusterman
    September 19, 2012 at 6:04 pm

  • Scarlett
    September 19, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Im kind of hazy on if Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card is considered YA, but boy, did that blow my mind with how realistic and amazing it was. I’d have to say Ender’s Shadow though was even better.

    I’ve always been a big fan of Monica Hughes’ Invitation to the Game (or just The Game, if you read it on the re-release. It’s a little dated now, but I read and re-read it in middle school. I also like William Sleator’s House of Stairs and Interstellar Pig. I’m sure there are others, too.

    Starglass looks like a lot of fun! I’d definitely like to read it. : )

    September 19, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    That is an IMPOSSIBLE question. First, how do you define YA? Then, how do you define SF?

    I’m going to go with something skewed really young, just so no one claims crossover appeal. And hard scifi (aka science-based) so no one claims my soft-scifi (society-based) isn’t really SF.

    The Rains of Eridian by HM Hoover.

  • Amy Greenblatt
    September 19, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    My favourite “YA sci-fi book” kind of plays with the line between MG and YA, not to mention that it’s an entire series – Animorphs by K.A. Applegate. They shaped my childhood.

  • erin
    September 20, 2012 at 9:35 am

    It’s so hard to choose!

    I’d have to go with my sf gateway drug as tween–Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonsong and Dragonsinger. I read all the other Pern books, but those remain my favorites.

    My honorable mention would have to be the dystopia that warped my brain as a middle schooler: This Time of Darkness by H.M. Hoover. I’ve loved a good city-in-a-dome book ever since.

  • Kaitlin S.
    September 20, 2012 at 10:20 am

    Wow, wow, wow! I love the Starglass cover! (And also that coat. I need that coat!)

    Favorite YA sci-fi novel? Maybe a popular answer, but Across the Universe by Beth Revis! I don’t know if I’ve ever read another book that made me feel so panicky and claustrophobic (but in a good way!).

    Another commenter mentioned the Animorphs series by K.A. Applegate – and that would have to be a runner-up for me too. There was one glorious childhood summer spent reading the entire series from beginning to end. (And I loved the little flip-book animations in the bottom right corners of the pages.)

  • Christina (A Reader of Fictions)
    September 20, 2012 at 10:33 am

    Hmmm, Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card is up there, even though I’ve discovered that the author is kind of a terrible person. Oh well, I still like the book.

    Oh, I also loved A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan to pieces. So GOOD.

    I’m sure there are others, but I’ll roll with those.

    I absolutely adored the Animorphs series (except for, obviously, the abysmal ending). So it’s a hands down favorite for YA sci-fi.

  • kelly

    If we’re talking Science Fiction per se, Dune. Also Ender’s Game and its sequels since they could be considered more YA oriented since the main characters are young. But if we’re talking about more recent YA science fiction, I just finished Beth Revis’ Across the Universe & A Million Suns and loved them!

  • Su
    September 21, 2012 at 9:56 am

    I can’t just pick one, so I’m going to go with “Anything by Andre Norton”. She’s one of the reasons I took to reading with a passion as a young’un.

    Lots of people already mentioned “Ender’s Game”, but I really do love it, so I had to mention it again. I also just finished reading “Insignia”, which was pretty good.

    Also, I LOVE Catherine Fisher’s “Incarceron”, but that might count as Fantasy, not SciFi…

    Can I cheat and vote for a series? I grew up on Animorphs, and I’m pretty sure they’ll stay at the top of my list for a very long time.

    I’m so excited about STARGLASS. Can’t WAIT to read it. <3

    The Hitchhiker’s Guide, but does that count as YA? I don’t think so. I also really, really liked A Long, Long Sleep.

    Phoebe North, yay, that’s awesome! The whole weather-in-space thing with her coat and the wind is kind of pleasantly double-take inducing. And the glowing purple! awesome! I sense some neat thematic things are going to happen with the whole glass/vacuum/green house/biosphere/inside/outside thing?

    Anyway, it has been a while, but I thought certain aspects of M.T. Anderson’s Feed were really delightful.

    Woaaaah. What a cover. Congrats to Phoebe! Awesome to get cover-lucky 🙂

    My favourite sci-fi YA novel would be Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer. I loved how a seemingly ordinary astronomic phenomenon throws the entire world into chaos. Terrifying, yes.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    I haven’t read many YA sci-fi novels but I started reading For Darkness Shows the Stars so..I’ll have to go with that for now. 🙂 And how great that on the first try, Phoebe’s cover came out so stunning! I love that coat too–it actually made me think of Amy from Dr. Who for some reason. Maybe it’s the hair? Anyway, thanks for the amazing giveaway!

    My favorite YA Sci-Fi novel is LEGEND, though it can be more dystopian.

    My favorite YA science fiction novel has to be Feed by M.T. Anderson. Haunting. Or–and it’s more adult than YA, but its main character is a teenager so I’ll count it–I also love Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler.

    I’m super excited for Starglass! I’ve followed Phoebe’s blog for a while and she seems way cool and so wise.

    As for my favorite YA sf book… I’m going to cheat and narrow it down to two: The Silver Metal Lover by Tanith Lee and Wyrms by OS Card. I think both were probably published as straight up SF originally but today they’d definitely be YA, and they’re among my all time faves.

    I LOVE the Leviathan books by Scott Westerfield! It’s all steampunky and fantasy-ish, hopefully that counts as Sci-fi..

    I’m very fond of Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies books.

    That is such a cruel question! I did love, however, how Cinder was thoroughly sci fi in setup and world and yet used a common fantasy inspiration–fairy tale–to be the base of the plot. And I can’t wait for Scarlet!

    Rafflecopter wouldn’t let me write an answer, but my favourite YA sci-fi is probably Animorphs. It’s the series that got me into sci-fi in the first place.
