Earlier this summer Shelf Life revealed the cover of Vortex, the much-anticipated sequel to Julie Cross’ Tempest. Since then, the powers that be decided to switch things up with a brand-new cover. So let’s try this again! The updated cover features Jackson and Holly—albeit in slightly different clothes—and the tagline “There will be no calm before the storm.” Check it out after the jump.

Pretty cool, right? The bad news is that Vortex doesn’t hit shelves until Jan. 15, 2013. But the good news is that we can also reveal an exclusive excerpt, making the wait a little less painful.

Are you excited about Vortex? Sound off in the comments.
