Shera’s Thoughts:  Eek! O’boy, and I thought the first cover was bad.  It’s so bad I can’t even nit-pick it.

Shera’s Thoughts:  Another naked chest, but it’s not too much of an eyesore.  In fact, I really like the misty highlight they’ve got going around him.

Shera’s Thoughts:  Have to agree with Wicked Scribes, it looks a little incomplete.  Still this has to be the wickedest cover in the series.  It’s just too cool!

Shera’s Thoughts:  Ah-ha!  A cover as tacky as the title!  Something is up with this guys pose, it looks so . . . wrong.  Hair, the hair.  What is wrong with it?

Vampire’s Kiss by Veronica Wolff

Shera’s Thoughts:  This cover would be pretty standard with the background and girl.  Yet, they felt the urge to add that boy.  A very creepy boy.  He’s so fake.  Look at his lips . . . just let them scare you . . . they’re shiny . . .

Shera’s Thoughts:  Coolest—and creepiest—mermaid cover ever!!! The title font is gorgeas, and I love that it matches all that beautiful dripping lipstick/blood.  The flowing hair looks wonderful and the scales are groove’in—if a little tacky.

One complaint, that G on gate looks like a P to me.

I love Nalini's covers as well, this one is especially nice, I think she has some of the best ones in UF.

I can't stop laughing at the Patricia Rice cover, his head istoo big for his body and his hair looks like a wig!!

Yeah, the Rice cover is wacked!!

Nalini has been blessed in the cover department, for her Guild Hunter series anyway. ^_-
