Cover Envy (5)
It's that time of week again! I'm showing another couple of covers that make me green with envy and stuck sitting on my hands until the novels they cover come out.
I hope you enjoy!
Entwined by Heather Dixon- *Sigh*. Seriously, look at this cover. This is like someone asked a seven-year-old to describe their dream cover and then an artist went crazy to make one of the most breathtaking covers I've seen lately. Everything from the poofy white dress to the lush greenery, her hair spilling down her back to the castle in the near distance is beautiful. I also love the material her dress is made out of it. It looks a little beat up like something has gone slightly array. The vines swirling around the cover and the font just complete the package. This book is gorgeous!
Here's the blurb (from Goodreads):
Azalea and her younger sisters dance in the mysterious silver forest every night, escaping from the sadness of the palace and their father’s grief. What they don’t understand—although as time passes they begin to get an inkling of the danger they are in—is that the mysterious and dashing Keeper is tightening his snare with deadly purpose. Luckily, Azalea is brave and steadfast. Luckily, a handsome young army captain also has his eye on Azalea. . . . Lush, romantic, and compelling, this debut novel by Heather Dixon will thrill fans of Shannon Hale, Robin McKinley, and Edith Pattou.
Entwined will be out March 29, 2011.
Tempestuous by Lesley Livingston- This has always been a really wonderful series and each cover gets better. I loved the first two covers but this one out does itself. The dark background really sets off Kelley's vivid red hair and I love how the dress gives the hint of wings with it's fabric in the back.
The blurb isn't even out yet. This is the third in the series. The first novel is Wondrous Strange and the second is Darklight.
Tempestuous will be out January 7, 2011.
