Shera’s thoughts:

Interesting touches. A lamppost noose and a monster grate.

Let’s hope this Jenna Black series doesn’t get the axe, and that it’s good.

Shera’s thoughts:

First off I know what they’re trying to do with the typography, but it doesn’t quite work here. Very nice attempt though.

Love the art and all those cats! So nifty.

Though none of the art ever screams dragons. That’s what the titles are for.

Shera’s thoughts:

The instant I saw this cover I knew it had something to do with the four horsemen of the apocalypse. So well done.

The flames look a bit funny on the horse. Pretty nice try though.

Cover success. The cover makes me think of historical china. The girls eye screams fantasy! Goal!

Adore this cover. However, the quote is over powering the title. No-no.

Shera’s thoughts:

So pretty. I love it. The typography is so simple and pink. Which is not something I’d think would be a good thing. But it fits perfectly with the cover art.

Shera’s thoughts:

Paranormal Romance covers have officially hit an all time low. This is the bottom of the barrel.

I actually loath this cover. Loath it. They should have just had spider webs no girl. That would have been better.

Burn. It.

Fits the series well. Atticus looks badass and mischievous. Though I don’t think this cover is as good as some of the previous ones.

Ah! I love these covers. It’s amazing what the designers do to the title! To fit all that on the cover and make it work so well.

Bravo!

Shera’s thoughts:

Skulls and scythes. I always look forward to how they’ll incorporate it into these covers. Or what they’ll focus on.

Fits the series well and I love that lipstick on the rim. Nice touch.

Love how this cover looks and feels like a High Fantasy cover, but then there’s that lovely skyline!

Love this cover, and I wasn’t even aware of all the other pretty covers that came before it.

I like the cover of Smoldering Hunger, but all the covers in the series looks the same. I don't know how I feel about the cover of Spider Game to be honest. I don't HATE it but I don't like the pose there, doesn't fit with the other books in the series. Its just a weird cover.

Smoldering Hunger definitely fits in well with the series.

The cover art team was clearly thinking outside of the box for Spider Game, and I commend them. It just rubs me the wrong way.
