I’m so thrilled to bring you the cover reveal of Lily Paradis’ new book Volition being released early next year. A couple months ago, I got the chance to review her first novel, Ignite, which was a contemporary story, and I absolutely loved it. I’ll link the review below. Volition is not like Ignite, genre wise. I haven’t read it yet but it doesn’t sound like it is, and Lily herself said it isn’t. Here’s the summary from Goodreads so you can decide for yourself:
You know that feeling in the pit of your stomach that stays with you, then tears you apart slowly at first, and all at once shreds every fiber of your being?
It’s because you’re contradicting the universe. Everything lines up so perfectly that you couldn’t have imagined it to work out better, but then you have to go and do everything humanly possible to ruin it because you can’t stand to have it go right? That’s what I did. I did it because there’s a darkness that surrounds me, and I think I want it there. My name is Tate McKenna, and my soul is blacker than my heart.
Here is the actual cover:
It’s so pretty! It;s quite different from Ignite’s cover, and if I’m being honest I do prefer Ignite’s cover, but this book has darker themes and I’m glad the cover reflects that. This book will look so pretty on my shelf. If I hadn’t read Ignite yet, and had never heard of Lily, I’m positive that based on the cover alone I would pick this book up if I had seen it in a bookstore or library. I’m so excited for this book, and I have such high expectations.

“A read that will keep you on your toes until the very end. Genius!” – Makayla (The Book Life)
“This is a twisted tale… that you can relate to.” – Bryce (Novels to Song)
“Beautifully twisted…A novel that shocks and surprises, and is not your typical love story. A gripping read filled with complex characters, dark humor and lyrical writing that leaves you wanting more!Paradis produced a story that carried a lot of emotion that dealt with love, relationships, and the darkness that surrounds death and the mark it leaves on those who have escaped it.” – Ashley F. (Falling Down the Book Hole)
“The story was lined with black and drowned in glitter… Volition is one of those books that makes you reflect on life’s past, present, and future.” – Abbey (Books a la Mode)
“I could not put this beautiful and dark tale of Tate McKenna down!Be with her as she discovers the impact that free will, fate and the act of letting go can have on a person!” – Jaclyn (Living in a World of Book Quotes)
I look up into the sky to see all of the drops falling on the ground before they make contact. I realize the drops have more in common with me than I think. We’re all just falling until we’re not falling, and we don’t really have a choice where we land.
Right now it’s not enough to have just a little bit of Hayden. I want all of him. I want to be engulfed by him. I want him to set me on fire and burn me until I’m nothing but ashes. And then I want him to set a flame to those ashes, because he’s the only one who can.
Release Date: February 9th, 2015
