‘Cover Crush’ is a regular feature here at BCC. We love covers – they’re the first thing that catches our eye and will be the primary reason we pick up a book. This feature is where we highlight gorgeous covers of books we’ve seen either around the blogosphere or at the bookshop. These posts run sporadically, as soon as we see a cover we love, we’ll post it!
LAURA’S COVER CRUSH
Ok, so with this cover you cannot escape the obvious association, and of course that must be deliberate. But the idea of a grown up Red Riding Hood style story appeals, and the asymmetrical use of the girl’s face adds a sinister edge to the picture.
Darkride – Darkride Chronicles #1
Release Date: Dec 2011
Publisher: Indie Published
Ander McNair used to be the favorite son of a great monster-hunting family – until he was bitten by a werewolf and the hunter became the hunted. Now anything that makes his pulse race, even a kiss from his girlfriend Cicely, is enough to turn him into a monster. When he finally gets a chance to earn his cure by killing a vampire prince, he finds he has to choose between his own past and the future of the girl he loves. Can a guy who’s not even human learn what it means to be a man?
Luke Marianez used to be an immortal vampire prince – until the witch he loved betrayed him and cursed him with the ability to die. Now he lives in the world of vampire blood bars, where the waitresses are the drinks, and dreams about killing the last of the witch’s line so he can live forever. But revenge doesn’t just mean breaking the curse. He wants to break the girl’s heart, too. Can Luke seduce Cicely without falling in love himself?
Cicely Watson doesn’t believe in werewolves or vampires. She’s not even sure she believes in true love. But she’s about to discover what every werewolf knows: People change. (Goodreads)
