Oh hey! Yeah, I’m back from vacation and I have some MAJOR LIFE-CHANGING NEWS to report but I’ll get to that later because if I don’t talk about this now my head may explode.
I’ve been seeing this cover around the blogsophere for a little while now and every time I see it I hear a fork scraping against a plate. It’s just such a nonsensical cover that I end up tripping over it. I mean this chick might as well put a velvet bag over her head for all she can see. But super awesome sword wielder!
IT’S KILLING ME! C’mon. She’s wearing chain mail over her eyes? WTF sense does that make? Is her name Charles Bronson because this girl’s got a death wish wearing that thing. Unless this is an elaborate game of pin the tail on the donkey I don’t know about. Not to mention after a while she’d have a forehead that started at her crown and no eyebrows. OMG this bothers me. Irrationally so.
I understand authors have very little influence on their covers and as of late covers aren’t doing too great of a job matching what’s actually in the book. In that same vein hooray for kick ass female katana slinger on the cover. Kudos. Except she’s about as effective as Blinkin in that gear.
