Cover Poison: Ashen Winter, Heaven & a rant by yours truly


So I'm on a bit of a short fuze right now, as I lost EVERYTHING on my computer to a virus that was lurking on an author's website. If I get snappy in this post, don't worry it's not you. Another reason to dislike the Trojans (if you've heard of people getting viruses or have gotten it yourself, you know this is the worst one out there). The only thing I lost that was blog-related was the photo-shopped picture I was going to use for my blogoversary (maybe they'll have a new version of Adobe Photoshop that I can try out by then) and a review that I started a while ago for a book that doesn't come out for a couple months still. So this only affects you all in the context that I may be in a bad mood for at least a few days. Just don't unfollow me please, I promise it will get better :)

If you've read this far, I seriously love you forever! For those of you who are visiting my site for the first time, I apologize. I'm not usually like this. The first cover is the third book in the Halo series.



Bethany, an angel sent to Earth, and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier, have been to Hell and back. But now their love will be put to its highest test yet, as they defy Heavenly law and marry. They don’t tell Beth’s archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, but the angels know soon enough, and punishment comes in a terrifying form: the Sevens, who are rogue angels bent on keeping Beth and Xavier apart, destroying Gabriel and Ivy, and darkening angelic power in the heavens.

The only way Bethany and Xavier can elude the Sevens is to hide in the open, and blend in with other mortals their own age. Gabriel and Ivy set them up at college, where they can’t reveal their relationship, and where there is still danger around each corner. Will Bethany be called back to Heaven – forever – and face leaving the love of her life?


My thoughts: I still haven't started this series and I'm not exactly inclined to. I haven't heard very good things about it and bad angel books really bother me now. But I really do love the covers.

This next one is the cover for the sequel to Ashfall...


It’s been over six months since the eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano. Alex and Darla have been staying with Alex’s relatives, trying to cope with the new reality of the primitive world so vividly portrayed in Ashfall, the first book in this series. It’s also been six months of waiting for Alex’s parents to return from Iowa. Alex and Darla decide they can wait no longer and must retrace their journey into Iowa to find and bring back Alex’s parents to the tenuous safety of Illinois. But the landscape they cross is even more perilous than before, with life-and-death battles for food and power between the remaining communities. When the unthinkable happens, Alex must find new reserves of strength and determination to survive.





My thoughts: I won a copy of the first book, but I haven't read it yet. It looks amazing thought and I really like this cover.

What do you guys think of these covers? Let me know in the comments!
