The Tide of Unmaking Cover Art


Wayne and I are thrilled to present our fans with the first look at the brand new cover art for The Berinfell Prophecies Book Three: The Tide of Unmaking.

Because book 3 is the most epic of the series and spans locales near and far, as well as a diverse range of characters and notable moments, it was hard to pint-point exactly what should be on the cover. But once we saw the “world on fire,” we knew it was the right fit.

To all of our readers who’ve patiently waited for this final installment, we can’t thank you enough. You’re the reason we write. And we hope you like this cover (and the book!) as much as we do.

      Thank you Aarathyn!

    MIIIIIINNNNNNNDDDDDDDD BLLLLOOOOWWWWWWNNNNN!!!!!!!!

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      You rock, Andy. Thanks.

  • Taisia

    Ooh! That’s looks great! I can’t wait!! When will it be available to buy?

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      The manuscript is in my hands now (Wayne has signed off for his part). After my read-thru, I’ll format it, and then send it to the e-formatters on Aug. 27th. Looks like an early September release from there.

    • Taisia

      So excited!!!!!

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      So are we! Thanks Taisia!

    • Taisia

      Pardon my ignorance, but does e-formatters mean that it’ll be an e-book? I don’t have an e-reader (just because I love the feeling of reading a good book and the sound of the pages turning :) ). I should probably get one though. It’s a good way to store a lot of books without taking up too much room and I don’t have much room myself…

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      The book will be available in both physical and digital forms. We have to format the manuscript twice: once for the print version, and once for the digital (which actually requires about 4 different file types to make it accessible to all the various e-readers out there).

    This is beautiful…by far the best one to date. :D Love it! Can’t wait to grab it :)

      Well that’s certainly cool to hear Nathan! Thanks for the feedback.

    KABLAM!!!!!

    • Andy

      I know, right?

      KABLAM!!!

    *EXplodes* *my remains Explode* *the remains of that explosion explodes* *whatever tiny pieces might have been left of my elven body explode*

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      “Clean up on aisle four. And five. And possibly three. Um. Definitely three.”

  • Aarathyn

    Hyper is the first to blow! *explodes* We really should get a doctor. This can’t be good for us….

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Dialing one now…

    • Taisia

      LOL

  • http://emmaesquared.blogspot.ca emma e squared

    This looks incredible! I can’t wait to read it!

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Awe, thank Emma! That means a lot.

  • Billy Jepma

    Wow, that looks fantastic! :O Consider me super excited!

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Considered! And accepted! Thanks bro.

  • http://realmofhearts.blogspot.com/ Ryan Paige Howard

    WOW… it is beautifully EPIC and will go nicely with the rest of the series.
    The teaser sounds great! Seven years have passed… way too cool! :D I like growing with the characters.

    I must ask the same question as Taisia… Is there going to be paperback copies? I too don’t have an e-reader and I much prefer hardbacks/paperbacks. There’s just something special about them. Like really checking out every little detail (I’m a little weird that way), the joy of turning a page, and the bitter sweetness of seeing how close to the end you are. And you can’t forget the coolest thing of all… having the author(s) signature… you can’t have that with an e-book ;-)

    BTW Love the new look for your site. :-)
    Have a blessed day.
    In His Grace,
    ~Ryan Paige Howard (Ryanheart)

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Thanks Ryan.

      See my response to her above.

      We could always sign your e-reader if you went digital. ;)

  • Esmerelda

    AHHHH!!! Crazy Epicness! I can’t wait!!! I LLLOOOVVVEEEE the cover! It took me a minute to realize that it was the earth on the cover… :D I can’t wait!!! So excited and hope it comes out VERY soon! ;)

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Are you sure it’s Earth?
      :)

      Glad you like it!

    • Andy

      You mean… It’s not earth?!?!
      :O

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Who’s to say?

    • Taisia

      Ooh! All these mysteries!

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      …just wait until you read the book!

    • Andy

      MUST-WAIT-

      POW!!!

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Ha – yeah, sorry about all the waiting.

    • http://pathfindersfindings.blogspot.com Pathfinder

      If waiting means that it’s even more epic, then it’s definitely worth it

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Appreciate that perspective. It will be worth it!

  • Ciara

    That. Is. Intense.

    I’m SO excited for it to come out! I think I might just…

    **EXPLODES**

    Heeheehee…

    *can’t contain excitement* *EXPLODES*

    And somehow I managed to be a day late…

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Better late than never! Exploding elves are always welcome here no matter the time.

    • Ciara

      Or as my grade six teacher once said, “Better late than early!” XD

      *EXPLOOOOOOOOOODES EPICLY* :D

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Ha ha

  • http://www.drummerguyremix.blogspot.com Gabe

    YAAAAAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

    KABLOOIE!!

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      *disembodied hand picks up mop*

      Has anyone seen my head?

    • Ciara

      Found it! But you might need a neck before you can put it back on…

      *hands Gabe his head*

    • Taisia

      Oh no! I manage to stay intact for so long! Don’t….*BOOM*

    • http://www.drummerguyremix.blogspot.com Gabe

      *disembodied hand picks up head*

      Thanks. Oh, here’s my neck.

  • Kameron

    Wow! the cover looks GREAT! i cant imagine how epic the book will be!

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Thanks Kameron! I’m editing the manuscript now; it’s pretty epic!

  • Debra Lobley

    Is this supposed to be the last book?

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Yes, Debra…at least from us…

      …the mystery deepens!

    • Jag Swiftstorm

      **Explodes**
      After reforming, thinks that maybe the Underground Elves are supposed to write a fourth book… but also remembers something else he read somewhere, and wonders if there’s a connection…

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Stay tuned on this thought! You may be closer than you know…

    • Jag Swiftstorm

      The first one, or the second? And I’ll say that the person who I heard it from has the same amount of letters in both his first and last name…

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Ha ha – you’ll just have to wait and see.

  • Sarah

    This looks totally awesome, Sir Hopper! But I’m more excited about the summary- this sounds incredibly awesome! I can hardly wait for it to come out. (Maybe I should save my B&N gift cards . . . will it be available through Barnes&Noble?)

    *picks up mop and cleaning supplies* I’d better go see about cleaning up after some of those exploding elves.

    Thanks for writing such awesome books!
    -Sarah

  • Cole

    I can’t wait! I’ve been waiting forever for this! The cover is awesome and I can’t wait to read it! Any ideas as to when it might be available for preorder? ;)

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Thanks Cole! Glad you like it. Shooting for Sept. 15th.

  • emily zine

    cool cover i wish i could see you and it in person!!!!!

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Thanks Emily!

  • http://pathfindersfindings.blogspot.com Pathfinder

    Oh, that’s brilliant! Best one yet!

  • JD Lovell

    Sir Batson and you have done a great job on the cover! SO AMAZING, SO EPIC!

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      I’ll pass it on to him.

  • Scarlet Raptor

    YAAAAAHOOOOOOO! **Explodes** Comes back together. **Explodes again, trys to come back together but can not** ”Help! I can’t get back together! I can’t read the book!”

  • Scarlet Raptor

    By the way, Do you have a big picture of a Scarlet Raptor?

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      I went out to take a picture of mine this morning but she was not cooperating. Almost bit my arm off. Warning: never feed your Scarlet Raptor a box of Twinkies: as much as they’ll act like they want them, their bowels will torment them (and you!) for days.

  • ben the elf

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Yes, Amazon. But we prefer you (and all your friends) get it through our Amazon direct page (CreateSpace) which is the same amount for you, but benefits the authors you love a little more.
