*COVER REVAL* The Eternity Cure

Now you seemed to all loved the cover reveal for Dare You To that I posted back in February, so I thought I'd treat you all to another one as I have just received the amazing cover for The Eternity Cure!

'The Eternity Cure' is the brand new book in the Blood of Eden series by Julie Kagawa, following on from the amazing 'The Immortal Rules'. Do we have any fans out there? (I'm expecting the answer will be lots and lots!) It is not out until May this year, but here is a plot sneakypeek:

Out here in the Fringes, there is only one rule:
Blood calls to blood.
She has done the unthinkable: died so she might continue to live. Now Allie, the reluctant teenage vampire who was cast out of Eden, and Zeke, the human boy who loves her, must attempt to save the world from a deadly new strain of plague. In order to do so, they must first hunt down the monster who holds the promise of the cure—and Allie’s beloved mentor—in his sadistic grip….
Joined by Allie’s blood brother, Jackal, this unlikely posse of companions will brave a landscape stalked by raiders, rabids, and rogue vampires. But even if they survive, they’re bound for the Inner city, and a vicious showdown that will test their bonds in ways they never expected.
It may just be that becoming undead was the easy part. Confronting the horrors of Allie’s awakening hunger, her growing feelings for Zeke, and the uncertainties of their future is going to be the ultimate challenge.

Sounds exciting right?
The cover for it looks fantastic too....

Now because it is Friday and I'm feeling generous I have some of the behind the scenes images of the shoot for this cover!

What do you think of these?

Now looking at both the cover and the shoot pictures for it got me thinking about book covers and what makes a strong cover? Every cover is different, but it must be so hard to come up with a new cover that is eyecatching from the rest. What makes a good book cover to you? How important is the cover to you? Do you judge a book by its cover?

Susan Cain's 'Quiet' is one of the first covers that came into my head for sticking out among the rest, recently. Although visually there isn't alot (if any) on the cover at all to look at, it has the reverse effect and is eyecatching amidst the array of multi coloured books around it. It definitely takes on the 'Less is more' concept!
I also had a google as to what were considered the best book covers and these was one that kept catching my eye across many different web pages - 'The Flame Alphabet' by Ben Marcus. Although it is not out in the UK until May, and has a strange, twisted, yet oddly intriguing plot line, I have to admit it does capture the eye!
What are you favourite book covers? Or ones that have interested you, made you look twice or even bought it? Let me know!

Have a great weekend!

  1. The cover looks awesome, can't wait for The Eternity Cure!

  2. Love the cover, especially with the purple colour scheme it has. Purple eyes would be so awesome. Thanks for sharing! :)

  3. Love the cover andit fits really well with book 1

  4. I think The Fault in Our Stars has one of the most iconic covers. There's that bright, almost-neon shade of blue with contrasting clouds on it, and add the the marker/chalk type of font. Really stands out among all those cover of people and faces, and etc.
