My Thoughts About This Cover
The beauty of this cover lies in the exquisitely done calligraphy, with all of its slashing flourishes. The title and series title actually take center stage, which is something cover artists/designers focus on, at times.
This ornate font -- which I'm sure has been further embellished -- has a certain Arabic flair to it, as well as a medieval one, too. It is just simply gorgeous in the extreme!
Echoing the letters of the title and series title are the gracefully curving vines along each side of the cover. These vines have little eyes located around the middle of the way up, which gives them an obvious touch of fantasy. At the bottom of the left-hand corner (as the viewer looks at this cover), there's a red poppy, which makes a stark contrast with this predominantly dark-toned violet background, which is lovely as well.
Last but not least, I also like the bridge that spans the trailing thorn vines on each side of the cover.
I wish I knew who designed this delightful cover, but alas, I have no idea.....The Amazon reader has been of help whatsoever.... So I will not have this information until I actually own this book, which I most assuredly plan on doing!

choice this week?
