Runes Cover Reveal

I'm really excited to be a part of the cover reveal for this book! I've always thought that cover reveals were absolutely awesome to see, and now I know they're even more fun to be a part of. There's just something about seeing such a crucial part of the book early that's so cool.

And now on to the cover. What do I think of it? Overall, I'd say it's pretty good. The font may seem a little generic (especially for the author's name), but I really like the design behind the title, and the little half circle of symbols that continue down beneath it.

There is one thing that's really bothering me, though. It's my biggest pet peeve in any sort of a visual representation of a book, be it through a cover, a trailer, or whatever. I really hate it when the actors/models don't look nearly young enough to be the characters they're playing. Ever since the casting monstrosity that was Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, I've been extremely high strung about stuff like that.

The blurb says that Raine is supposed to be seventeen. And as I scroll back up to look at the cover, I'm just not seeing it. Yes, I know, there's all kinds of horrible hoops to jump through if you want to cast a minor in anything that could ever be considered mildly sexual, but it couldn't have been that hard to get a little closer to the right age.

And now I'm ranting, which means that I should probably shut up. Just in general, though, I think the cover is wonderful. I'm just not sure how well it matches this book that drew me in from the moment I read the summary.

Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.

Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.

Runes releases May 20th!
