PUBLISHER: Pocket Books | GENRE: Urban Fantasy | ARTIST: Unknown
Justice is blind. Justine isn’t. Book two in the Saturn’s Daughter series, in which Tina Clancy is gifted with the power to dispense justice…for good or evil.Tina Clancy is adapting to her new life as one of Saturn’s Daughters while living in the toxic part of Baltimore known as The Zone, and occasionally acting as a champion of the downtrodden, the weird, the innocent…and the sometimes not-so-innocent.
Just when she finally lands a real law job, the Zone is blasted by poisonous gas and her sometimes-boyfriend starts receiving visitors from Hell. He’s none too pleased about that, or in Tina having sent his granny to Hell in his place. For that matter, neither is granny… (Goodreads)
I’m loving this cover. The previous cover in the series was also awesome but let down by the model’s pose (boobs pushed out) and her silly pouty face, but I loved everything else about it. With this cover they’ve got everything right with the model in my opinion. I love her outfit, and as Rebecca says below it’s sexy rather than slutty, and I’m loving her stern looking expression. I’m also intrigued about the gas mask, I wonder what that is all about?
The title font is great, especially the colour and highlighting of the word “Hell” – as is the title! The faint demon/witches symbol is a nice touch and I really like the mix of purple and green and the hint of a background. Overall I really like this cover and I will definitely be cracking on with book one so I can read Damn Him To Hell as soon as it’s released.
At first glance, I wasn’t sure whether I loved this cover or loathed it, but when I look again I actually find that I quite like it. I love the colour contrast between the purple/pink and the green, and think it really highlights the model well. I like how the costume choice is more sexy than slutty, revealing just the right amount of flesh with the leather material not being too shiny and PVC-looking. The choice of the gun and gasmask is intriguing, as I’d love to know why the heroine is holding these particular items, and it also makes her appear strong and confident.
The magic circle behind the text adds to the impression of fantasy, making it clear which genre this covers fall into. I particularly like the highlighting of the word ‘hell’, as well as the more subtle background scene with the light green and the windows. I’m more impressed with this cover than that of the first book, that’s for sure!
