Cover Reveal! THE HEADHUNTERS RACE by Kimberly Afe


Author Kimberly Afe
I am thrilled to be participating in the cover release for Kimberly Afe's The Headhunters Race! Kimberly has been a blogging friend of mine for some time now, and we've also exchanged manuscripts for critique.

When I first read The Headhunters Race, I was immediately caught up in Avene's journey and the harsh realities of the world Kimberly created. With an exciting premise, a fierce and dangerous landscape, and a heroine with resolve, this is a novel you won't want to miss. You'll be hearing more from me about the book when it releases next month, but for now, I give you.....



Book Summary
Sixteen-year-old Avene was sentenced to prison at thirteen for a crime she didn't commit. Now she has a chance to win her freedom back – if she enters the Headhunters Race. Second prize isn't so bad either, an upgrade to the Leisure Prison if you make it to the finish line. To win either prize, Avene and the other prisoners must navigate one hundred and fifty miles of dense forest, desert, and worst of all, cannibal territory.

With a mechanical collar timed to strangle the prisoners if they're not back in nine days, Avene allies herself with seventeen-year-old McCoy, another prisoner that insists on helping her at every turn and a boy she's trying hard not to fall for. Together they battle nature, other prisoners, and the timed death collars to win the coveted prize. But when Avene is tested with one deadly conflict after another, she realizes there is more at stake than winning her freedom – first she has to survive. 

Author Bio
