Cover Art REVEALED: "Sweet Venom" by Tera Lynn Childs

I have to thank Small Review for blogging about this cover reveal.

I had no clue that Tera Lynn Childs was publishing TWO books this year. I've been dying for Fins are Forever, mermaid lover that I am, and also enjoyed reading her first book duo, based around Greek Mythology. While Sweet Venom also revolves around mythology, it revolves around villains, which is just. so. COOL! It's about triplets descended from MEDUSA who find out that "they are destined to guard the door between the world of monsters and the world of men – pitched as a mythological Charmed." (Quote from GoodReads page)

Are you guys ready for this awesome-looking cover?

Before I even knew this book was about Medusa, that braid just looked ALIVE to me. I also love the curls around the script. Lovely cover! I think a lot of people will be picking this one up!

PLUS! It comes out in October, which is when Rick Riordan's Son of Neptune comes out. I know I'm dying to find out what happens next to the Camp Half-Blood campers. How about you? ...Okay, I guess I'll settle for the second in his Kane Chronicles trilogy, The Throne of Fire, this May. (Settle? HAH! I'm dying for this one, too...but not quite so much as SON [haha, S.O.N.= SON of Neptune. That just amuses me...])

If you're like me and just can't wait for October, here are two books full of mythology coming out this spring:

The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter comes out on April 19th. From GoodReads:

It's always been just Kate and her mom--and now her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.

Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld--and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini comes out on May 31st. I'm DYING to read this one. DYING. From GoodReads:

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.

As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.


  1. Oooh, these sound tantalizing. I really like the cover for Sweet Venom. The braid curly ques sort of match the font's.

  2. Thanks so much! You rock!

    This looks like it's going to be an awesome year for Greek mythology retellings. Hades especially seems to be getting a lot of attention.

  3. @ Gina: I didn't notice that they matched! Good call :)

    @ Small Review: I know, right? I love, love, LOVE mythology. All these new books excite me like nothing else. Have you read the PJ books? One of the Hades characters was one of my favorites!
