I love participating in cover reveals! They’re so much fun, and I can just feel readers’ excitement when they open the post and see the cover for the first time (especially when the cover is as pretty as the one for Mercury Rises)! Continue reading to see the lovely cover for this Robin Hood retelling!
Isn’t it pretty?! She even has a green hood on like Robin Hood! He had a green hood right? Right? I’m doubting myself now. But anyway, I’m very intrigued by the idea behind this story, I mean the Robin Hood story is pretty entertaining, but throw in some science fiction, dystopia, and some romance (maybe even star-crossed lovers), and that sounds like quite the roller coaster ride. But wait, is Mercury the Robin Hood, or Hawk? Read the synopsis below and tell me what you think!

A girl looking for a way out.
Being the daughter of New America’s leader, Mercury Masters has everything a girl could want. A glamorous life full of beautiful people, and the power to have anything she wants, except for one thing—to escape. Because Mercury’s perfect life comes with secrets to keep. Dangerous secrets that if made public would destroy her, her family, and her father’s reign. Then she meets Hawk.
A boy looking to be a hero.
Hawk, a handsome prep school dropout turned vigilante, has his own family secrets. Deadly secrets that have haunted him since he was fifteen. But instead of fighting the ghosts of his past, Hawk has assembled a group of misfit hackers and thieves to save the future from the corrupt government of New America and the mysterious virus that is killing off its citizens. But trying to do the right thing is tough when the person you really want to save is your enemy’s daughter.
A love that could kill them both.
Powerful forces keep them apart, but coming together could be the key to saving New America from destruction—even though it may cost both their lives, in this retelling of the legend of Robin Hood.
