Cover Reveal: The Chemistry of Fate by Meradeth Houston

Today I'm happy to share the cover of Meradeth Houston's latest novel, The Chemistry of Fate, due to release April 2013.


The chemistry between Ari and Tom is reactive, but a deadly secret in a family journal will tear them apart if they can’t avoid fate.

“They are everywhere, can be anyone, and are always the last person you’d expect.” When Tom stumbles across his grandfather’s journal, he’s convinced the old man was crazier than he thought. The book contains references to beings called the Sary, immortals who are assigned to save humans on the verge of suicide. They certainly aren’t allowed to fall in love with mortals. Which the journal claims Tom’s grandfather did, resulting in his expulsion from the Sary. As strange as the journal seems, Tom can’t get the stories out of his head; especially when he finds the photo of his grandfather’s wings.
 
Tom’s only distraction is Ari, the girl he studies with for their chemistry class.
 
Ari has one goal when she arrives in town: see how much Tom knows about the Sary and neutralize the situation. This isn’t a normal job, but protecting the secrecy of the Sary is vital. If Tom is a threat to exposing the Sary to the public, fate has a way of taking care of the situation, usually ending with the mortal’s death. While Ari spends time with Tom, he becomes more than just an assignment, but how far can a relationship go when she can’t tell him who she really is? When she finds out just how much Tom actually knows about the Sary, Ari is forced to choose between her wings, and her heart.
 
THE CHEMISTRY OF FATE is a companion to COLORS LIKE MEMORIES and is set before the latter takes place.

  4. Sounds good: immortals saving humans on the verge of suicide. Reminded me of 'City of Angels.'

    1. A Shimmer of Angels, which came out in January, is almost the exact opposite of this premise.

    2. I kind of cracked up when I saw Shimmer of Angels for that exact reason--it's seriously my idea in reverse! I now sure what that means, but it's fun :)

  11. Interesting dilemma between worrying that your granddad was either crazy or onto something super-important with the Sary. Good luck with the novel!

  12. The cover and blurb are both great--but I just wanted to say that I LOVE the title.

    It's kind of strange, because you don't realize how most titles out there are so-so until you read one that is exceptional, like "The Chemistry of Fate." Like.. oh. Yeah. That totally suits this story.

    Really excited about this one! Thanks for the reveal, Kelly.
