For my first post, I'm showing some
cover love to:
Hardcover, 406 pages
Published January 3, 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance,
Although red is not my favorite color, I was immediately attracted to this cover when I first saw it. The photograph is excellent, and I love the way the furry hood frames the model's face. She's looking toward the wolf coming up behind her, and her expression is one of wary expectation, as if she's not sure if this beautiful animal is friend or foe. I also like the way the tones of red are handled. It looks either as if dawn is breaking, or night is falling. All in all, I think it's a very striking cover, as are the first two covers of this trilogy.
Two of my readers mentioned something I forgot to include in this post -- the lettering, with the spot of dripping blood. Thus, I decided to come back and add it to my original statements. The title of the book is done in very stark, classical lettering, so that spot of blood stands out even more! This is the final touch that makes this cover what it is -- true eye and shelf candy!
