Cover Analysis (#1)

Cover Analysis

So, this week. I chose . . . .

*horn blares* 

. .  . My Heart Be Damned by Chanelle Gray! 

"If you're a Hunter, there are only three things you must know about the Damned. The Damned can't lie, can't live without a body, and can't leave you alone.

Amerie Carter has the blood of a Hunter, unfortunately. She is one of a rare line of women who, upon her sixteenth birthday, will come into extraordinary powers used to hunt the Damned; escaped souls from Hell who take up residence in human bodies. It's supposed to be her sweet sixteen, but Amerie has never dreaded a day more, and her worst fears are confirmed as the celebration turns tragic when her mother is killed.

Grief-stricken, Amerie vows to never hunt a day in her life. She's determined to hide behind normalcy, attending school, hanging out with her friends and working an after-school job at The Hut. All Amerie wants is to be left alone. But try telling the Damned that. The harder Amerie tries to ignore her powers, the more the Damned come looking for her. 

When an attack leaves one of Amerie's friends in the hospital, and endangers the lives of her fellow students, she knows she has no choice: Hunt or Be Hunted. Thankfully, the gorgeous, secretive, and so-off-limits Marshall offers to train Amerie to take out her supernatural enemies. But training with Marshall means leading lying to her friends, her family, and confronting the mysterious circumstances surrounding her mother’s death.

Amerie soon discovers she’s not the only one with something to hide, Marshall's secrets might kill her before the Damned get the chance.

The Picture
Okay, so I don't know about you but that girl, Amerie, looks gorgeous. Her dress looks amazing! And the eerie cemetery/graveyard background along with the spooky ghostly mist on the bottom? Along with the woods that seems to be hiding a church? Is that a church or a school? Either way, it's great how the trees somehow disguise it. And then we have, Amerie, holding a knife with her. . . Wait- the dress is STAINED! It's stained! *gasps* Perhaps, to Hunt the Damned? *squeals*

The Font
The font? I have to be honest, it's boring. It kind of blends in with the entire thing but that's the thing. It blends in. The font, to me, should be out and open saying "THIS IS THE NAME OF THIS BOOK! AND AUTHOR!" 

The Designs
Are there any? I thought the ghost-like mist in the bottom was it but no. I can't base my cover analysis on nothing, right?

In Conclusion, 
This Cover is gorgeous and eerie. It's hitting your bookstores this summer! July 15th to be exact! Ah! I cannot wait!
