Mostly because it’s shiny. I happen to like shiny things. Because if you take the shiny and all those weird gear kind of things (either gears or seriously wacked out flowers, take your pick), it would just be a white girl in a field and we’ve all seen that a million times before. Okay, she’s a tanned white girl but still.
So fierce. I want it. Now. I’m so glad Taylor’s publishers did not mess around with the covers of the trilogy. They were consistent with it and I’M SO GLAD. I only wish they had remained so with Libba Bray’s Diviner series as well.
The cover is fairly simple but the numbers coming out of her hair make it snappier and give it a zing that it would not otherwise have.
A person of colour on the cover! Let’s celebrate! And the cover itself is so freaking gorgeous. As I said, I like shiny things.
This one is kinda splendid. The dress, the veil , the mystery. And of course, the fact that though it is a girl in a dress, it is an Asian girl in a dress who looks like she may be a ghost or an assassin or perhaps both? Hey, no one said it was mutually exclusive. Anyway, whatever she is, the cover is gorgeous and I like it.
I love that heir hair is the same colour as the birds on her dress. From a distance it looks like she’s part of the sky with the blue birds being patches of the sky. Strange Chemistry has some of the best covers for their books.
Okay, I’m still not sure if I like this. I mean, on the one hand, they kept the same models for all three books which is quite an achievement considering how quickly cover themes change these days. On the other hand, it’s just….a bit unsettling and if that’s the effect they were going for, they’ve totally succeeded. The black and white will certainly make it stand out though so that’s good.
