Today the finalized cover for Tempest Unleashed, the 2012 sequel to last year's fin-tastic Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs, was officially debuted on Tracy's blog. Here's the cover:
Below is the synopsis. If you haven't read the first book yet, read at your own risk, because minor spoilers may be lurking below.
Tempest Maguire is happy with her decision to embrace her mermaid nature and live among her mother’s clan within the ocean’s depths. Even though training to one day ascend the throne for the aging mermaid queen is rigorous, she finds refuge in the arms of Kona, the selkie who first opened her up to her mermaid side. But when word comes that one of her brothers has been gravely injured on land, Tempest immediately rushes to his side—which also brings her back to her old flame, Mark. And in her absence, a deadly battle begins raging at the hands of Tempest’s old nemesis, the sea witch Tiamat. As the dangerous war erupts, Tempest’s two loves—Kona and Mark, sea and land—will collide for the first time, both to protect her and to force her to choose.
What do you guys think? Myself, I'm uber-excited! I've been waiting for this book for quite some time. Plus, I think this one's got a lot more mermaid action than the previous. As much as I love selkies, I prefer mermaids a whole lot more.
So, are you guys ready to be Unleashed?
