Dark Currents is set in a small Midwestern resort town where paranormal tourism is a booming business. Daisy Johanssen, an incubus’ daughter raised by a loving single mom, is the liaison between the eldritch community and mundane authorities. Most of the time that doesn’t entail anything more challenging than retrieving stolen goods from a puckish pickpocket or tracking down a tourist led astray by a will-o’-the-wisp, but when a young man drowns in an apparent accident that’s not what it seems, Daisy’s job turns deadly earnest.
I really like the turquoise, water background on this one, it looks like it’s infused with magic and makes it looks dramatic, especially with the way her hair is flying backwards and electrified with the same light. I’m not sure about the model’s pose, it looks slightly uncomfortable on those rocks! But she does look tough and has what looks like a pretty jeweled knife on her belt, so she looks like my kind of heroine. Without a doubt the series title Agent Of Hel has me intrigued and the cover is eye catching, so I would definitely pick it up in a book shop.
Hmm. This is a tough one as I love everything about it except the model. Her pose is just awkward, I mean what’s her elbow doing sticking out like that?? She looks as though she’s uncomfortable with her photo being taken, all awkward and not sure how to stand. But I do love the lighting, the title font and colours and the decoration. It’s a shame the model isn’t sitting in a more relaxed pose, as this could have been a great cover.
