Cover Reveal: The Serpent's Secret

I saw this cover being shared on Twitter last month and knew from first glance it was amazing. Also as a cover in the diversity column, it helps increase representation. There were so many positive replies to this reveal, right down to the shoes she wore. Feel free to look for yourself and choose what's the most striking thing for you. Me? A girl standing in fighting pose with startling snake figures all around her. Love it! Eat your heart out, Rick Riordan.

Title: The Serpent's Secret by Sayantani Dasgupta

(But she doesn’t know it yet.)

On the morning of her twelfth birthday, Kiranmala is just a regular sixth grader living in Parsippany, New Jersey… until her parents mysteriously vanish later that day and a rakkhosh demon slams through her kitchen, determined to eat her alive. Turns out there might be some truth to her parents’ fantastical stories—like how Kiranmala is a real Indian princess—and a wealth of secrets about her origin they've kept hidden.

To complicate matters, two crushworthy Indian princes ring her doorbell, insisting they’re here to rescue her. Suddenly, Kiran is swept into another dimension full of magic, winged horses, moving maps, and annoying, talking birds. There she must solve riddles and slay demons all while avoiding the Serpent King of the underworld (who may or may not want to kill her) and the rakkhosh queen (who definitely does) in order to find her parents and basically save New Jersey, her entire world, and everything beyond it…
So what do you think? Isn't this cover amazing? I really love it. See you on Monday.


  1. Young adult or middle grade? It fits either genre well.

  2. That cover is very cool. I am glad you enjoyed it. I love the sound of the world Kiranmala finds herself in.

  3. 'tis a lovely cover indeed, although I don't see women empowerment through wielding a lethal weapon. We haven't had much of Hindu YA novels, methinks, that could be a new element.

  4. Hi Sheena-kay .. love the cover and I'm sure it will be a fun read ... looks amazing - cheers Hilary

  5. The cover is amazing! Can't wait to check this one out. Sounds SO good! :)

  6. That is definitely a great cover!

  7. When I saw the cover I used the f word in front of amazing. It's definitely eye catching.
