Cover Crazy: Soul Kissed
This weekly meme is hosted by The Book Worms and is used to show the covers we are crazy about!
The Moonstone Saga #1
Synopsis: Question: When your mother is a powerful witch and your father is a soul-sucking vampire, what does that make you?
With all the beauty and charm of a Siren, but cursed as a blood-sucking succubus, Empusa longs for love and a normal life. Neither of these can ever be hers, because the only thing she brings to anyone she loves is death.
Em lingers in the mortal world, hiding from her father and existing in a lonely life. Until she meets Brennan. With golden hair and a radiant smile, he captures her heart and awakens it from slumber.
But Brennan is more than he seems. And in a relationship where life itself hangs in the balance, is love ever really enough?
What I love:
*I love how the girl is arching back. It just makes her look so much more gorgeous than she already is. She reminds me of a dancer because of the way her body is positioned....just because dancers are flexible and move around in all sorts of ways.
*Her dress is very unique. It isn't like any regular dress I see on other covers. This one is just very different, which makes it one of those dresses that you will either love or hate. I happen to love it. :)
*I love that the background is complete darkness. It looks as though part of it is a lake or an ocean, and then the rest just goes black with that neat pattern. I like that there is kind of two pictures going on.
*The moon is so bright and really stands out on this cover. It isn't there just because, as it is definitely meant to be noticed.
*The font is really pretty too. I like the swirls and how drawn out the letters are. I really like the placement of the author's name. It stands out perfectly on the girl's dress and doesn't take over the cover.
