Exclusive Cover Reveal: Meljean Brook’s The Kraken King!

The Kraken King Part 1 by Meljean BrookFebruary's already off to a Kraken good start! Today, Heroes and Heartbreakers is excited to reveal the covers for the first three parts of Meljean Brook's eight-part Iron Seas serial novel, The Kraken King! When a woman yearning for more life experience finds herself on a voyage with a notorious man known as the Kraken King, you just know there's bound to be thrilling adventures and epic romance. We can't wait to check it out.

Here's the official description:

A former smuggler and thief, Ariq—better known as the Kraken King—doesn’t know what to make of the clever, mysterious woman he rescues from an airship besieged by marauders. Unsure if she’s a spy or a pawn in someone else’s game, Ariq isn’t about to let her out of his sight until he finds out…

After escaping her fourth kidnapping attempt in a year, Zenobia Fox has learned to vigilantly guard her identity. While her brother Archimedes is notorious for his exploits, Zenobia has had no adventures to call her own—besides the stories she writes. But when she jumps at the chance to escape to the wilds of Australia and acquire research for her next story, Zenobia quickly discovers that the voyage will be far more adventurous than any fiction she could put to paper…

The Kraken King will be published in eight installments beginning April 15, 2014!

And I'm not sure why, but I love the font they're using for KRAKEN. Can't wait to see the rest of them.

Oh, thank you for hosting these! #1 is my absolute favorite -- the colors just blow me away -- but the whole series just makes me so SO happy. Berkley's art department really outdid themselves.

Will this be published as a single unit at some point? I furiously hate serials and don't want my books split into a dozen pieces and sprawled across my ereader. I'd rather pay more for a single book.

P.S.: The covers are nice though.

MelM -- Yes, they will! I don't have a date yet, but they will be collected and published as a complete novel after the serial has been released.

I'm dying. Those covers are stunning! I'll need the printed version, but I also need every single cover so I guess I'll be buying both!
