Awesome cover, incredibly evocative of the destruction, action and danger involved in the series. Thrilled that they kept the continuity of the amazing cover art of book one. I'm curious about a million things, but foremost are these: A: Is the cover a depiction of The Strange Lands? And B: What is the meaning of the symbols on each of the covers for MIDNIGHT CITY, and THE SEVERED TOWER? The first is a symbol, and now the double helix... what does this mean? Did I already forget a key point of Midnight City? I need to re-read it... But I'm loving these Easter egg FRINGE-like clues on the covers.

Lord of the Flies meets War of the Worlds in J. Barton Mitchell's alien-invaded post-apocalyptic world where two teens and a young girl with amazing powers must stop the aliens’ mysterious plan

Earth has been conquered by an alien race known as the Assembly. The human adult population is gone, having succumbed to the Tone---a powerful, telepathic super-signal broadcast across the planet that reduces them to a state of complete subservience. But the Tone has one critical flaw. It only affects the population once they reach their early twenties, which means that there is one group left to resist: Children.

Holt Hawkins is a bounty hunter, and his current target is Mira Toombs, an infamous treasure seeker with a price on her head. It’s not long before Holt bags his prey, but their instant connection isn’t something he bargained for. Neither is the Assembly ship that crash-lands near them shortly after. Venturing inside, Holt finds a young girl who remembers nothing except her name: Zoey.

As the three make their way to the cavernous metropolis of Midnight City, they encounter young freedom fighters, mutants, otherworldly artifacts, pirates, feuding alien armies, and the amazing powers that Zoey is beginning to exhibit. Powers that suggest she, as impossible as it seems, may just be the key to stopping the Assembly once and for all.

Midnight City is the breathtaking first book of the Conquered Earth series.
