EDGE OF OBLIVION (Night Powler #2) | RELEASE DATE: Oct 2012 | PUBLISHER: Montlake Romance
GENRE: Paranormal Romance | ARTIST: Unknown
In a dark underground cell, Morgan Montgomery waits to die. A member of the Ikati, an ancient tribe of shape-shifters, Morgan stands convicted of treason. And Ikati law clearly spells out her fate: death to all who dare betray. But there is a glimmer of hope. Thanks to her friendship with Jenna, the new queen of the Ikati, Morgan has one last chance to prove her loyalty. She must discover and infiltrate the headquarters of the Expurgari, the Ikati’s ancient enemy, so they can be destroyed once and for all. The catch? She has only a fortnight to complete her mission and will be accompanied by Xander Luna, the tribe’s most feared enforcer. If Morgan fails, her life is forfeit. Because Xander is as lethal as he is loyal, and no one—not even this beautiful, passionate renegade—will distract him from his mission. But as the pair races across Europe into the heart of Italy, the attraction blooming between them becomes undeniable. Suddenly more than justice is at stake: so is love. Sensual, thrilling, and action-packed, Edge of Oblivion will enthrall readers with nail-biting suspense and heart-pounding passion. (Goodreads)
I really like this cover. They’ve kept elements from the first cover in the series and brought them over to this one. To me it definitely has a darker feel to it and I love the dash of pink of the scarf. The model is gorgeous and works well. Not too sure about the green eyes though, but they’re certainly not as tacky as I’ve seen with some covers as they don’t really detract from the cover too much. Overall, a good cover and continuation of the series.
I agree with Carolyn I really like this cover. The beautiful model and pinky/red scarf is very striking although I am not sure whether the scarf is symbolic or just there to look pretty. Having read the book I can only think it is the latter. I think the green eyes at the top look incongruous with the rest of the cover but luckily your eye is too busy looking at the model so it doesn’t detract too much from the overall image. The green eyes (symbolic for the Ikati, I assume) are much more subtle on the cover of Shadow’s Edge. The swirling smoke and hieroglyphics work really well and give the image as a whole a very ethereal look. Looks great and I am looking forward to see what the cover of book 3 is going to look like!
