My Cover:

Burning Sky Cover

It all began with a ruined elixir and an accidental bolt of lightning…

Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she’s being told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the greatest mage tyrant the world has ever known. A suicide task for anyone let alone a sixteen-year-old girl with no training, facing a prophecy that foretells a fiery clash to the death.

Prince Titus of Elberon has sworn to protect Iolanthe at all costs but he’s also a powerful mage committed to obliterating the Bane to avenge the death of his family—even if he must sacrifice both Iolanthe and himself to achieve his goal.

But Titus makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the Bane closing in, he must choose between his mission and her life.

Why I’m Crushing:

I love animated covers!  This one is really wonderful to look at with the hypnotizing firebird.  I also really like the way they were able to make the firebird shine.  The font is a good choice and is very strong but not overpowering from the rest of the cover.  The colors work well together and I like the accent of the feather in the bottom right corner.  This is definitely one of my favorite animated covers!  What do you guys think?  Feel free to link and share Cover Crushes you may have 🙂

My Cover:

Imposter Alt Cover

Can Tessa pose as Madison . . . and stop a killer before it’s too late? 

Tessa is a Variant, able to absorb the DNA of anyone she touches and mimic their appearance. Shunned by her family, she’s spent the last two years training with the Forces with Extraordinary Abilities, a secret branch of the FBI. When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, Tessa is given a mission: she must impersonate Madison, a local teen, to find the killer before he strikes again. 

Tessa hates everything about being an impostor—the stress, the danger, the deceit—but loves playing the role of a normal girl. As Madison, she finds friends, romance, and the kind of loving family she’d do anything to keep. Amid action, suspense, and a ticking clock, this super-human comes to a very human conclusion: even a girl who can look like anyone struggles the most with being herself.

Why I’m Crushing:

I had the original cover for this book as a CC a while back, then I came across this one, and I love it so much more!  There is little details to this cover that are on the story, such as the necklace and the eye color that goes with the story better than the original story did.  Plus, I liked the washed out feel to it.  I just like it so much more than the first 🙂  What do you guys think of this one?  Feel free to share your own Cover Crush!
