Cover Lover – 9 New Titles

Usually, when I do a cover lover post, I hope to find at least one that is a stand-out. I didn’t have much luck this time around. There isn’t anything that makes me gag, but then there isn’t much that would make me grab the book off of the shelf to read, either.

First up, we have the second book from the new Chris Marie Green Jensen Murphy, Ghost for Hire series. Another One Bites the Dust will be released on November 4th.

  1. There is also a novella in the Annywn series that is due out in June called The Changeling Soldier. I should have a copy in the next couple of weeks.

  2. I like the cover for Dreamer’s Pool, even though the character gave me an Ophelia (from Hamlet) vibe. (Here’s to hoping she doesn’t die.)

    I totally agree, the last three covers – Wishes, Talon, and The Young Elites – are very simple. But it was only The Young Elites that I kinda, sorta disliked. The other two seem to fit. And depending on the publisher, the cover for Talon could have a pretty cool dragon-scale texture. :)

    • I do hope that the Talon cover pops when you see it in person. At first glance, I got a Spiderman vibe from it.

  3. Actually I liked several of the covers. First the Gena Showalter one, because of the color and because you can’t see the head, because nothing ticks me off more than when the hero looks different than he is described in the book (or than I imagined him).
    I also liked Dreamer’s Pool, but I got more of an Pre-Raphaelite vibe from it, but maybe I am on the same wavelength as Rika Ashton, since the Pre-Rahpaelites did a number of Ophelia images…
    I also like the Talon cover (here I had more of a snakeskin-boot-vibe). I think it would look great if they did an embossed cover…

    • Some sort of texture to the Talon cover could really make it pop. As long as they don’t pull the whole “first cover in one style and change for the next 4 crap”.
