Cover Reveal: RELEASE by MR Merrick

Announcing the cover reveal for RELEASE by MR Merrick!

Congrats on a beautiful cover, M.R.! I think it's spookily gorgeous.


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.

The title graphic is stunning!

Sounds like a great story. The last para of they synop pulled me in. And that cover is GORGEOUS. Love the contrasting Slate color with the brightness of the purple/magenta colors. Really attractive!

Sarah Henson said...

Love the colors!! And yes, the swirling pit of doom is especially fantastic!

Jessica Schley said...

Neat! The colors remind me of Karsten Knight's WILDFIRE, which was a just stunning cover. Digging Merrick's covers overall--may have snuck over to GR to look at the others. :)

Yeah, I like it a lot. Who did the cover?

Dorothy Dreyer said...

Gary, I'm hoping Matt will come and answer your question. :)
