Cover Reveal: Defector (Variants #2) by Susanne Winnacker

Some time ago I read Impostor, the first book in this series (see review here).
I wasn't a really big fan of the book, but I'm curious to see how the story continues. So here's the cover of book 2 in the Variants series! 

Title: Defector
Author: Susanne Winnacker 
Series: Variants #2 
Published by: Razorbill
Publication date: June 26, 2014
Genres: Thriller, Young Adult

The synopsis for book 2 is currently unavailable.

Synopsis for book 1 – Impostor:

Can Tessa pose as Madison . . . and stop a killer before it’s too late? 
Tessa is a Variant, able to absorb the DNA of anyone she touches and mimic their appearance. Shunned by her family, she’s spent the last two years training with the Forces with Extraordinary Abilities, a secret branch of the FBI. When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, Tessa is given a mission: she must impersonate Madison, a local teen, to find the killer before he strikes again.
Tessa hates everything about being an impostor—the stress, the danger, the deceit—but loves playing the role of a normal girl. As Madison, she finds friends, romance, and the kind of loving family she’d do anything to keep. Amid action, suspense, and a ticking clock, this super-human comes to a very human conclusion: even a girl who can look like anyone struggles the most with being herself

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black [Review]

Title: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown
Author: Holly Black
Publisher: Little, Brown Books 
Series: ?
Release Date: September 3rd 2013
Pages: 432
Rating: ★★★
Tana lives in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown’s gates, you can never leave.

One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself.
