Discussion: Why I Should Read More Science Fiction

Science Fictionfiction based on imagined future scientific or technological advances and major social or environmental changes, frequently portraying space or time travel and life on other planets.

As you know I am not a fan of broody book models on the cover of my books. However, sometimes having a person on the cover (or the silhouette of one) can be very striking.

Goodreads Summary
Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them.
