Cover Reveal: The Deep End of The Sea by Heather Lyons

Deep End Of The Sea - Front Cover


What if all the legends you’ve learned were wrong?

Brutally attacked by one god and unfairly cursed by another she faithfully served, Medusa has spent the last two thousand years living out her punishment on an enchanted isle in the Aegean Sea. A far cry from the monster legends depict, she’s spent her time educating herself, gardening, and desperately trying to frighten away adventure seekers who occasionally end up, much to her dismay, as statues when they manage to catch her off guard.  As time marches on without her, Medusa wishes for nothing more than to be given a second chance at a life stolen away at far too young an age.

But then comes a day when Hermes, one of the few friends she still has and the only deity she trusts, petitions the rest of the gods and goddesses to reverse the curse. Thus begins a journey toward healing and redemption, of reclaiming a life after tragedy, and of just how powerful friendship and love can be—because sometimes, you have to sink in the deep end of the sea before you can rise back up again.

Thoughts on the cover:

I have this thing for sea blue book covers! So yes, I love the cover of The Deep End Of The Sea! I think it fits the plot summary perfectly too! The whole vibe gives me chills- I’m so excited to read this one!

Expected release: February 13, 2014

    I hadn’t heard of this book before. It sounds (and looks) amazing! I adore Greek mythology so I’ll definitely be adding this to my shelf!

    Thanks! :)

    This book is new to me, I’ve added it to my GR list. Sounds great and I love the blue tints :)

    I haven’t heard of this book and the cover is beautiful. I’m not a huge fan of the texture though but everything else… the typography, beautiful! This would’ve done great on my Holy, Mother Cover this week

      I’m a fan of Heather Lyons’ books despite not having read anything by her yet! Is that weird? Lol it’s just that her covers are so pretty! I was super excited about this one! Love the typography too! Can’t wait to see the next issue of Holy, Mother Cover! :)
