Cover Reveal: The Elementalists by C. Sharp

So, I finished reading this two days ago (yay ARCs, yay Diversion Books! They're such a nice publishing company) and I feel silly because I had NO IDEA THE AUTHOR WAS A GUY. Oops :P Not like it matters, but I've definitely noticed over the years that men and women each have their own distinctive voices. This changes my perspective a lot, but my review won't go up for awhile since the publishing date is so far off.

ANYWAY, time for the reveal!
*drum roll*

Isn't it pretty???? 
What I love about it is that it totally relates to the book. The girl looks similar to how I pictured the MC, Chloe, to look; and the lightening in the background is fitting, as it plays a pretty central role in the story. It's dramatic, it's blue (which I love), and it's impressive. But what do you guys think?? Let me know in the comments!

It is the hottest year on record for the fifth year in a row, and famine riots spread across much of Africa. Along the Gulf Coast, the hurricane season is one of the worst in memory. The latest in a string of 9.0 strength earthquakes has claimed two-hundred thousand lives in central China. Far below the earth’s crust, imprisoned in ancient slumber, the elemental powers of the land grow restless...

All seems normal in small town Virginia, where fifteen year old Chloe McClellan dreads the start of her sophomore year. Whip-smart, athletic and genuine, she’s also a bit of an angry loner who is totally unaware of her charms. Despite her plans to stay under the radar, Chloe becomes a target for the fiery queen of the It-girls in fifth period gym. She then draws instant notoriety when she’s struck by lightning after her first disastrous day of school. As if that weren’t bad enough, she soon comes to believe, that either she’s going insane, or her accident has unleashed a powerful and terrifying creature from the mythological world—triggering the final countdown to the world’s sixth great extinction level event.

Chloe finds some solace as she inexplicably wins the affections of an unlikely trio of male classmates: the earthy and gregarious captain of the football team, the flighty stoner with a secret, and an enigmatic transfer student who longs for the sea. All the while she struggles with the growing realization that “Dragons” exist, and she may be the only one who can stop them.

The Elementalists, book one of the Tipping Point Prophecy, follows Chloe and her group of friends, and enemies, as they struggle to save humanity by harnessing the power of the elements.
