‘The Darkest Minds’ Author Alexandra Bracken Reveals ‘Never Fade’ Cover, Excerpt, Novella And Card

Alexandra Bracken, author of The Darkest Minds has revealed the cover for the sequel, Never Fade, and released an excerpt that will be sure to keep fans on the edge of their seats.

Never Fade is the sequel to The Darkest Minds which will see Ruby working for the Children’s League and still struggling with the idea that she is a monster. She’s learns of an important and potentially dangerous secret — one that just so happens to be in the hands of Liam, who she now has to track down. Never Fade will be released in bookstores on November 5, 2013.

Here is the cover from Entertainment Weekly:


You can read the first chapter of the book at EW.

Bracken has also revealed that she has also written a bridge novella that will take place in between the first and second books in the series. On her Tumblr, she said:

By bridge novella, I mean it takes place between books one and two and if you’ve ever wondered anything about:

– What it’s like to live in the world of TDM as a young adult who was too old to be affected by IAAN and too young to have lost a kid

– What parents are attempting to do to get their kids back

– How the skiptracer system works

– What’s happening with Zu

… then this is the novella for you! It’s actually one of my favorite things I’ve written (!) and I am, like, psychotically excited for you all to read it.

The novella is called In Time and will be released as an eBook on July 16.

Bracken will also be at Book Expo America at the end of the month. She has made the postcards below for the event that will match ones she made for The Darkest Minds. She says, “I consider [Show Your Colors] the unofficial slogan of [Never Fade]. Lots of people being sneaky and not showing their true colors/intentions, so to speak.” The cards will also be available at her other events later in the year.
