We’re starting a new feature here on Chapter Break called Chat About Covers. ‘Cause you know we all judge books by covers, whether we admit it or not. We judge the style, the color and font choices, and just the overall look. That might not keep us from reading the book, but we do still judge.
This cover is another offender with the floating heads. WHY THE FLOATING HEADS? Please oh please tell me why cover artists think this is a good idea? It is horrendous looking.
Otherwise, the cover is quite plain. You’ve got the gate, ok, goes with the title. Then there’s the ocean for some reason?
The font is ok for the author’s name. I do like the main title font. I don’t care for the small size of the “Gatekeeper’s Saga, Book One” though.
Yea so overall this one is a fail for me.
Gah – is that the man on the left’s hand on his own face? Someone else’s hand? Not only is he a floating head, but he comes with a floating hand!
And the water merging into the other guy’s hair is just awful. Is the cover implying that his hair is really water?
I’m with Julie on the what’s with the gate AND the water? If the gate is guarding that much water, it needs to be a lot longer!
I’m not even interested in reading the synopsis for this book.
What are your thoughts on this cover?
