Cover Reveal: The Rebirths of Tao by Wesley Chu

Today I’m excited to break out a cover reveal for a book I’ve had my eye on for a while.  Not only have I been eagerly waiting the release of Wesley Chu’s The Rebirths of Tao to find out how the trilogy ends, I’ve also been quite impatient to see the cover.

Anyway, if you’ve seen the covers for the first two books, then you’ll probably notice that this one is quite a bit of a departure from the theme they’ve set. Usually I like all my book covers in a series to “match” (I’m not the only one, am I?) but then I have to say I dig this one. It may be a little different, and while I loved the other covers for their quirkiness, I think this one and its stark nature actually does a better job capturing the “urban sci-fi, spy thriller” vibe of the Tao series. Here it is! Thoughts?


                                                                           Cover by Stewart Larking


Many years have passed since the events in The Deaths of Tao: the world is split into pro-Prophus and pro-Genjix factions, and is poised on the edge of a devastating new World War; the Prophus are hiding; and Roen has a family to take care of.

A Genjix scientist who defects to the other side holds the key to preventing bloodshed on an almost unimaginable scale.

With the might of the Genjix in active pursuit, Roen is the only person who can help him save the world, and the Quasing race, too.

And you thought you were having a stressful day…

I’ve had a great time with this series so far. I’m glad that Angry Robot is back from their break and this book is on the horizon once again, set to drop in April.

  1. I actually think the cover works really well with the first two. The colors are consistent and so are the silhouettes. And I agree, I’m excited to dive in:-D


    • Yeah, it’s definitely in keeping with the theme. The different position of the text, the greater amount of blank space, and the placement and shapes of the silhouettes makes it look like a grittier book though, which makes more sense as that’s the direction I feel the series has been heading.
