Cover Reveal - Uncontrollable


Hey gang! S.R. Johannes next book, Uncontrollable (Book 2 in The Nature of Grace series) is scheduled to be released on September 24th, but I have an early cover reveal for you today.  I reviewed Shelli's first book here on my blog and I'm excited to see where she intends to take the series.  Here's what everyone else thought about her first effort:


PRAISES FOR UNTRACEABLE

"Grace is a spunky, independent, nature girl who doesn't need a boy to save her. With wilderness survival, a juicy love triangle, and more twists and turns than a roller coaster, this fast-paced novel had me holding my breath until the very last page—and still begging for more!" -Kimberly Derting, author of the The Body Finder series (Harper Teen) and The Pledge series (S&S)

"This thrilling story is a dramatic entanglement of mystery, deception and teen romance. The action flows like a brisk mountain stream interspersed with rapids, holding suspense to last page." 
- Kirkus Reviews

"Johannes has done a marvelous job of creating a suspense-filled mystery with surprises that keep you guessing all the way to the end. Untraceable is a thoroughly engrossing and riveting page-turner."
-IndieReader
 
 
Here's a summary of what she has in store for us with Uncontrollable:

As Grace recovers from tragedy, her science class is chosen by Agent Sweeney at the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to help with research on the new "Red Wolf Reintroduction Program".

While she’s excited about helping with the conservation of the endangered wolves, Grace knows this means being outdoors in the worst winter recorded, in a place she no longer feels comfortable. It also means working closely with Wyn (her ex) and his annoying girlfriend (Skyler), a girl whose idea of getting close to nature is growing silk plants.

After a couple wolves show up dead, Grace almost quits. When a fellow project team member goes missing, Grace continues the assignment under a renewed suspicion that someone might be sabotaging the conservation program. She quietly begins to hunt for clues.

Little does she know, she is being hunted too.

And possibly by more than one person.

  6. Can't wait for this book. It sounds great. But the love interest from the last one had better be in it (I can't remember his name).

  14. The cover is beautiful but it's the mention of wolves that pulled me in. This looks like a great YA for my YA's.

  15. What a pretty cover. I like the premise. Funny, I have family members who were professionally involved with research and development of reintroducing wolves in there natural habitat. I would have loved to have been able to go with my Uncle on his trips.

    I'm not a YA reader but I think I'd like to see how this story unfolds.
