So the author in question is the wonderful Stephanie Diaz, author of the Extraction series! Can we just take a moment to observe how gorgeous these covers are? They're definitely one of my most breathtakingly stunning Sci-Fi covers I've seen in a while!
For those of you who don't know, the Extraction series is about a girl who lives on a planet where the moon is toxic, and to escape the harmful environment she wins an escape into the core of the planet where a civilisation has colonised. However, she soon finds out that escaping the brutal life of the planet's surface isn't all she has to face, as she finds herself battling to save the entire planet from destruction!
Now as Evolution, the third and final book in the series went on Sale on September 8th, the series is now officially complete! You can pick up Extraction in most places where books are sold! To celebrate the release, the publisher of Stephanie's books has agreed to discount the first two books in the series!
Now if you live in the US you can get digital copies of this series for only $2.99 on all formats! However, if you life in the UK like I do, Amazon are currently discounting the first two books in the series to £2.32 and iBooks have them for just £2.49! That's such a stunning deal for these two books and I'd say they're definitely worth it. So if you have been thinking about starting this series but have been hesitant because of the price, then the time to purchase them is now because this deal is only for a limited time!

And there you have it! If you're interested in purchasing the first two books in the series then I do highly recommend it. Readers across the world have the following things to say about Extraction:
"With urgent writing, fluid dialogue, and a cast of unforgettable characters, Extraction is a page-turning, gripping read, sure to entertain lovers of Hunger Games and Ender's Game and leave them breathless for more."
"Wow. WOW. This book is totally addicting."
"Tense and frightening; a world of harsh realities and hard choices; an indomitable girl who fights the power. I'd pick Clementine for my kick ball team every time if she were in my gym class."
"If you enjoy dystopian fiction or sci-fi thrillers, you'll eat this up with a spoon!"

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Stephanie first knew she wanted to be an author when she was in second grade, sitting in a book club drinking tea and reading books like The Egypt Game. She dreamed someday people might drink tea while devouring books she had written. She wrote her first book soon after, a 30-page fantasy story--complete with a hand-drawn map--stapled together and presented to her younger sister for a birthday present.
Now twenty-two years old, she lives in San Diego with her family. She graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in film production and a publishing deal for a young adult sci-fi trilogy. She is the author of Extraction and the forthcoming Rebellion and Evolution.
When she isn't lost in other worlds, she can be found singing, marveling at the night sky, or fangirling over TV shows.
