THE VICIOUS DEEP Cover Gets Revamped!

And by revamped, I do not mean it's been invaded by sparkly vampires (but there are shiny mermaids and merdudes in the book, or so I've heard). It's had a complete makeover, and I am loving it! Below is the book's official new cover and the synopsis:

When an unnatural riptide sweeps lifeguard Tristan Hart out to sea for three days and then dumps him back on the shore of Coney Island, it's the start of the Sea Court claiming its own. Suddenly, Tristan's girlfriend dramas and swimming championship seem like distant worries as he discovers the truth: he's a Merman. Now Tristan must fight for his life, the lives of his friends, and his humanity (if he still wants it), while competing in a race for a throne as ancient as the gods.
Like the seductive, duplicitous faeries of Wicked Lovely, these sirens of the deep have an agenda of their own.

The first word that came to my mind when I saw this new cover was "wicked." And it is wicked, right? I love the trident, the waves, the fonts used - EVERYTHING! The book is available for pre-order on Amazon, and it's not only gotten a new cover, but the book will now be in hardcover! It just gets better and better, doesn't it? My fins are definitely flipping for the release of The Vicious Deep.
What do you guys think? Do you love the cover as much as I do? Will you pre-order the book? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. That is a good cover, I like it. Very dynamic. By the way, I know this blog is primarily about literature, but I would be interested to see more posts about mermaid related artwork, having the bias of being an illustrator myself....

  2. Gordon, I am a huge fan of your artwork! Your mermaids are some of the most colorful I've seen. I'd be glad to round up an interview or post on your artwork.

  3. Thanks. I'd be happy to have you do that. If you want to do an interview, probably easiest to do it by email or windows live messenger.

  6. I too thought the original cover was awesome! This cover says fantasy more to me while the other said YA and mysterious.
