Cover Reveal: Release by M.R. Merrick (The Protector #3)

Wooohooooo!!!!!!!!
It's here!!!!

The cover reveal for RELEASE - the third book in The Protector series by M.R. Merrick!!!!
It's gorgeous, it's thrilling, it's soooooo beautiful and magical!!! 
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you've been following my blog for a while, you know I am a huge fan of M.R. Merrick and his YA series! It's one of the best series ever - and I am so not exaggerating!!! I can't wait to read Release - hopefully soon!

SO! I need your feedback on the cover! Do you love it as much as I do?! Have you read Exiled and Shift, and - like me - you're now dying to get your hands on Release?! LET ME KNOW in the comments below and please leave some LOVE for MATT!!! :D

Title: Release (The Protector #3)
Author: M.R. Merrick

Expected publication: December 10th 2012

Synopsis:

After uniting the shifters and calling in reinforcements, Chase has to face his toughest challenge yet: learning to control his emotions. But as tensions rise and his powers grow, controlling his emotions becomes the least of his problems.

Terrorized by a multi-shifter who is hell-bent on turning him, Chase questions just how far he’s willing to go to stop his father. Meanwhile, Tiki’s virtuous nature has placed him in the middle of Vincent’s past, leaving Chase to oppose a senate of vampires and defend a demon he hates.

Trying to balance his friends, his enemies, and his inner demons, Chase is left searching for answers about the Mark, his destiny, and where he can find the next soul piece. Stopping Riley is his top priority, but as more obstacles arise, he finds himself doubting all the decisions he’s made - especially regarding Rayna.

One thing is for certain: Chase has finally realized that he doesn’t know anything. The light doesn’t always quell the darkness, the monsters don’t always stay in the shadows, and the past doesn’t always stay in the past - sometimes, the demons inside are the hardest to fight.

Last year, I had the pleasure of reading the first book in The Protector series, Exiled, and then early this year I was lucky enough to be part of the blog tour for the second book, Shift. I absolutely loved both of them, and can't tell you how excited I am to dive into Release! Can't wait!

I think the cover is fabulous, but then I really love ALL the covers of this series. It looks like it is setting the tone/mood for this book in a very dramatic way with the vortex, funnel cloud, lighting and the amazing color contrast. :) It's a win in my eyes.

Shae Carcar said...

This cover reminds me of spy kids 2... very fantasy-looking and dark. If you haven't seen spy kids 2, its basically about these group of kids who get stuck in a video game... yup! This is totally a cool setting for that :)

Reading Wolf said...

Was the first book once offered on Goodreads in a giveaway? I think I remember seeing it. The cover for this one looks appealing. I love the tornado on the right side.

I like the dark and creepy feel to the cover but I don't like how there are so many things going on at once. I don't know what to focus on.

Aly said...

It's striking and I really love the colors used :)

fundinmental said...

I love the cover. Even though it is busy, it is very intriguing.

One of the most gorgeous covers I've seen. The colors are amazing!

Jaime Lester said...

I haven't had the chance to read this series yet, but it is on my Kindle just waiting for me to hurry on up and get to it, already. I love these covers. They are very dark and gritty. No girl in a dress, which I really don't mind, but it is nice to see a different kind of cover. And they all fit together nicely, and go with the tone of the books. Love it.

Sarahbotbonkers said...

What an interesting cover! It certainly tells a lot. I haven't started on the series yet but I have the first book, Exile. I'm going to really read it soon. :)

I would consider hiring a company like Myriad Interactive Media Inc.
They develop beautiful sites and could really improve this one. Also
they can code it in Wordpress to give you an easy to use CMS so you
can save tons of money on updates by doing simple changes to content
yourself. Good Luck
