Cover Reveal!

Nadine Brandes returns to Enclave Publishing in a new science fantasy out Summer 2024!

I’m so excited to join in revealing the cover for Nadine Brandes’ newest standalone YA science fantasy, The Nightmare Virus!  

Here’s the synopsis:

Some viruses go after the body. But the Nightmare Virus goes after the mind.

When dream technology goes wrong, a virus spreads across the globe, trapping people in a universal dreamscape. They call it the Nightmare Virus.

Cain Cross is determined to find a cure…if he can decipher his brother’s chicken-scratch formula notes. But when he gets infected, he has only 22 days until he’s trapped in the mental prison forever. Now, every time he falls asleep, he must fight in a Nightmare Arena until he earns his freedom to live in the “new world” that exists only in the mind.

Then he finds a way to manipulate the Nightmare—to change it by mere thought.

Forced to navigate a world of nightbeasts, mistblades, and half-truths, Cain turns his focus to survival. When the Emperor offers him a LifeSuPod—and access to a cure—in exchange for a dangerous favor, Cain thinks he’s found a way out. But Cain’s new power threatens to take him on paths that jeopardize his very soul.

Will he continue searching for a cure, or will he swear allegiance to the Nightmare? And the bigger question might be…will he even have a choice?


Brandes returns to Enclave Publishing's in their YA imprint, Enclave Escape, for this intriguing book, which releases in July of 2024. Since I hate summer (I do not like the heat), I'll at least have something awesome to look forward to.

You can preorder it now from Amazon and Barnes and Noble (these are NOT affiliate or sponsored links).

It’s always a great surprise and immense pleasure when I get picked to reveal covers, especially for authors I’ve read for a long time. I’ve read many of Brandes’ books, and I loved them all.  I highly recommend them. I'll definitely be reading, purchasing, and requesting this one for my local library's collection.
