YABC-cover-reveal

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

Sea of Kings by Melissa Hope,

releasing 12/1/2020 from Jolly Fish Press / North Star Editions!

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:

Hi, YABC! I’m SO excited to reveal my cover today with you! My name is Melissa Hope and I wrote a seafaring adventure for kids, called SEA OF KINGS. My amazing editors had me involved in the cover process right from the start, but even after knowing which scene in the book we wanted to display as the cover, I was still SHOCKED by how good it turned out. The first time I saw it, my jaw literally dropped. I kid you not. I love it so much!!! And that’s all thanks to Sophie Geister-Jones and Juan Manuel Moreno, who designed and illustrated, respectively, my royal brothers in this epic moment. It perfectly captures the different personalities between the brothers, and I’m getting goosebumps seeing it come to life. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I'm off to stare at this gorgeous cover with hearts in my eyes.

~Melissa Hope

SEA OF KINGS

Melissa Hope

Release date: 12/1/2020

About the Book

Thirteen-year-old Prince Noa has hated the ocean since the day it caused his mother’s death. But staying away from the sea isn't easy on his tropical island home, where he's stuck keeping up with his dim-witted and overconfident younger brother Dagan—the brawn to Noa’s brains.

When a vengeful pirate lays siege to their home, Noa and Dagan narrowly escape with their lives. Armed with a stolen ship, a haphazardly assembled crew, and a magical map that makes as much sense as slugs in a salt bath, the brothers set sail for the realm’s other kingdoms in search of help.

But navigating the sea proves deadlier than Noa’s worst fears. To free his home, Noa must solve the map’s confusing charts and confront the legendary one-eyed pirate before an evil force spreads across the realm and destroys the very people Noa means to protect.
