I absolutely love cover art, I could look at it for hours! And since I love it I figured a few of you are likely to love it too. So, I’ve established a weekly (Thursday) post called “Cover Lust” in which I will feature one spectacular cover I consider pretty much perfect. I encourage you to leave your thoughts below (because I’m crazy curious) and if you feel up to it… tell me the title of a book who’s cover YOU lust!

There is just something about this cover that screams EPIC. First…the tag line. “Some Heroes Prefer The Shadows.” If nothing else was on this cover but that tag line, I would still buy it. Why? Because it’s MUST be explained. Who is this hero and why must he hide? Add in the awesome tilted typography, the ominous skyline (which happens to include birds…you know how much I love that) and the tiny COLORED figure (yes, it makes a difference that he is red…it pulls your line of sight towards him) standing on the bridge and what you get is one grade A killer cover! Lust can’t even begin to explain my feelings…I think it might actually be love. *swoon*
