COVER 1COVER 2


A Long, Long Sleep
by Anna Sheehan

Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for sixty-two years when she is woken by a kiss.

Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten sub-basement, sixteen-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now her parents and her first love are long dead, and Rose -- hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire -- is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat.

Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existance, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes -- or be left without any future at all.

  5. That's a tough choice! I really DO like the beautiful blues and the girl's expression makes for a very nice cover, but cover number two stands out in its own way.
    Argh ...
    Okay. Cover 1 because I love blue.
    Yep. Cover 1.
    I think. ;D

  6. I like cover 1 best! However, if we were going for best cover with a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, then cover 2 because of the rose.

  11. I loved this book! I would have to go with cover 2. I just think it's beautiful, plus the girl on the first cover isn't how I pictured Rose while reading.

  13. Cover 1. The girls expression really captured the story (I can't believe I don't have this book. I LOVED it so much! I must have it.)

  14. I also have to say the blue cover.
    Just visually more attractive and captures my interest faster.

  16. I like cover #1, the coloring is more vivid and it looks like there is something mysterious going on. Cover #2 is pretty, but my eye goes first to #1.

  17. Cover 1 - I love filigree. I always see that as a beautiful touch to cover art. I also like the face peering from the side.
