Rebel of the Sands just got an amazing cover redesign in time for the March 7 release of the sequel, Traitor to the Throne! I actually love when books get a new look (maybe because then I have an excuse to get another gorgeous copy?? yes). I’m only sharing the book description for Rebel of the Sands here to avoid spoilers in the sequel’s description, but you can add Traitor to the Throne on Goodreads!

Since I loved the new cover, I wanted to share some of my favorite other cover redesigns/repackaging. And I’m not saying that these covers were improved or that one is better or worse… it’s just fun that they got a new look!

1. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton


2. The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman


3. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell


4. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski


5. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh


6. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling


Rebel of the Sands Synopsis:

She’s more gunpowder than girl—and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and barren wastes, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still practice their magic. But there’s nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can’t wait to escape from.

Destined to wind up “wed or dead,” Amani’s counting on her sharpshooting skills to get her out of Dustwalk. When she meets Jin, a mysterious and devastatingly handsome foreigner, in a shooting contest, she figures he’s the perfect escape route. But in all her years spent dreaming of leaving home, she never imagined she’d gallop away on a mythical horse, fleeing the murderous Sultan’s army, with a fugitive who’s wanted for treason. And she’d never have predicted she’d fall in love with him… or that he’d help her unlock the powerful truth of who she really is.

 About the Author:

Alwyn Hamilton was born in Toronto and spent her childhood bouncing between Europe and Canada until her parents settled in France. She grew up in a small town there, which might have compelled her to burst randomly into the opening song from Beauty and the Beast were it not for her total tone-deafness. She instead attempted to read and write her way to new places and developed a weakness for fantasy and cross-dressing heroines. She left France for Cambridge University to study History of Art at King’s College, and then to London where she became indentured to an auction house. She has a bad habit of acquiring more hardcovers than is smart for someone who moves house quite so often. Follow her at @AlwynFJH.

  1. I do like the new cover and enjoyed your examples too. It’s interesting how they repackage things. I will always have a soft spot for the original HP covers, but can’t resist the new ones too!

  2. I definitely like the new cover so much better. I haven’t seen the redesigned Harry Potter one and I like that too.

  3. Love this!! I love a lot of covers, including the harry Potter ones. I think Rebel of the Sands Hardcover was very pretty, and which they continue with that style. However, I still LOVE the new cover. A different design, but makes me want to get the new cover to match!

  4. Oh my word, your blog is so pretty!

    I like all of the covers in this series so far, but I much prefer the hardcover cover of Rebel to the paperback cover. But it’s still super nice, just not as flashy 🙂

    Thanks so much for the chance!

  5. Depo-provera injections must be given every 3 months. If a woman is not trusted to use birth control and someone makes the decision to give her an injection before she leaves the hospital, what’s to ensure that she’ll return in 3 months for the next injection?“Those women” are encouraged to receive the injection with no full disclosure of risk, “You don’t want to become pregnant again do you?” “No.” “Okay, here’s a shot for you.” That’s commonly the whole conversation.Let’s get paternalistic practices out of healthcare.

  6. I do believe all of the concepts you have introduced to your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too quick for newbies. May you please prolong them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

  7. comentou em 29 de novembro de 2011 às 16:07. Era pó normal. Só que de um tom bem mais escuro que minha pele. Acho assim mais recomendável que um bronzer, já ele eles costumam ser muiro alaranjados.Bjssss!!!

  8. பாவம் ப்ரசாந்த் பூஷன் அன்னாவை நம்பி மோசம் போனதை நினைத்து வருந்த வேன்டியதுதான் sir why you should not use the tamil translating method as in ” “. That seems to be simpler than this. This is my opinion. Kindly clarify.

  9. Our Company has been selling Majiko bomba fo a while now here in lake Regions of Tanzania. Moto bomba has been a rescue to many women living in Rural areas,where the main energy is Charcoal and fossil fuel. There has been some challenges,first how can they avoid Kerosine during start up combustion.Apart from few problems everybody who has come across it seems to like it.Medard Kachubo

  10. Really loved this piece, thank you. As a teacher at the same university, coming from a very different background, I really appreciate the insight from the different gazes of a staff member reflecting on student experience reflecting back on your own experiences. Thank you.

  11. je suis fan de quinoa, j’en ai préparé dans la semaine, et suis heureuse de savoir, qu’on en cultive en france, mais comment faire pour l’acheter ? jusqu’à présent je l’achetais en magazin bio, mais je voudrais bien l’acheter d’origine française.

  12. Hi,Cheryl Palevo let me know about you guys. After looking at your site, I’m definitely interested. It looks like you’re offering a great package. I’m getting married January 8th, 2011, in Quakertown, PA. I don’t know if that’s too far, but let me know. Please email me back if you might want to do our wedding. Thank you!

  13. An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic. If possible, as you become expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more details? It is highly helpful for me. Big thumb up for this blog post!

  14. to my son, “Your arm looks ugly.” I was so proud of his response (that we had practiced). He said with a smile on his face, “That’s okay, if you don’t like it, you don’t have to look at it.” I actually recommend this kind of “role play” with all kids (however many hands they have), because most people are faced with an unkind gesture at some point in their life.Crista

  15. zabudol si tu spomenut jednu podstatnu vec a tou je ze zijes v kapitalizme dnes kazdy sere na kazdeho je jedno aku mas skolu a odkial si vyliezol ci mas alebo nemas vysoku alebo ci vies vobec pisat mas peniaze a vies odkial ich nakradnut alebo vytrieskat? to je ta zakladna otazka,,,, ostatne si kupis…ked ich nemas skapes a nikto ti nepomoze….je mi na grcanie z tejto doby a podla mna to dobre neskonci vsade vladne zavist, tuzba po moci, peniazoch, pretvarka,klamstvo a pokusy ovladat ludi….

  16. Es VALIDO mientras NO sea ABUSIVO, contrario a la moral y las buenas costumbres.En este caso, es una clausula ABUSIVA, que NO fue negociada y que por el contrario fue IMPUESTA (tal contrato de adhesion, cada vez mas frecuentes en las locaciones urbanas).Estamos seguros que NINGUN JUEZ avalaría semejante desproposito. Ratificamos nuestra respuesta. Busque un abogado y no permita que se vulneren sus derechos.

  17. A minha:Tudo embolado na primeira curva(qual fosse Spa) e Vettel se afasta e sobra o Kimi(com a sorte que sempre o detestou, exceto o ano passado)em segundo, de fora Hamilton(com seu furor por consertar a besteira da tática de hoje) e Massa(com sua total inércia em pista molhada) ashahushaushuaBrincadeiras a parte! tô com o Speeder, melhor, aposto £1 em cada piloto kkkkkkkkkkkkk
