Cover Reveal: ONCE WE WERE by Kat Zhang

Last year, What's Left of Me, Kat Zhang's debut novel, hit the shelves and marked the beginning of The Hybrid Chronicles.  It is about Hybrids - two souls living in one body.  One soul is dominant and the other is recessive.  The recessive soul is supposed to disappear by their 5th birthday but Eva, the recessive soul in this series, is determined to live.  This is dangerous, and Addie, the dominant soul, knows it.  For the past three years, Addie has known that Eva is still there.  Hybrids are considered a threat to society.  Nevertheless, they find a way to make Eva move again, but they have to be careful to not get caught.

Once We Were is the continuation of the series.  Last week, the cover image was revealed:

The graphics of this cover are very aligned to the first book.  Here they are side-by-side:

Synopsis for Once We Were:
Eva was never supposed to have survived this long. As the recessive soul, she should have faded away years ago. Instead, she lingers in the body she shares with her sister soul, Addie. When the government discovered the truth, they tried to “cure” the girls, but Eva and Addie escaped before the doctors could strip Eva’s soul away.
Now fugitives, Eva and Addie find shelter with a group of hybrids who run an underground resistance. Surrounded by others like them, the girls learn how to temporarily disappear to give each soul some much-needed privacy. Eva is thrilled at the chance to be alone with Ryan, the boy she’s falling for, but troubled by the growing chasm between her and Addie. Despite clashes over their shared body, both girls are eager to join the rebellion.
Yet as they are drawn deeper into the escalating violence, they start to wonder: How far are they willing to go to fight for hybrid freedom? Faced with uncertainty and incredible danger, their answers may tear them apart forever.
What do ya'll think about the cover?
