Chat About Covers: Magic Born

February 16, 2017 Chat About Covers 8



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.

So creepy hand yep. Very awkward looking.  And the girl herself? What is up with her expression? Is she supposed to be some powerful magic user, or just some lost child?

Agree with Lynn about the panther as well. Just randomly hanging out beside her. I guess it must be the familiar, all witches have a cat familiar, right?

The city scene looks fine I guess. I do like the font. And the moon. And that’s about it.

The first thing that strikes me about this cover is her hand. What’s up with that? It looks pretty creepy. I guess we are to assume she’s performing magic. But maybe magic is not supposed to be captured in a still photo. And what’s up with the panther? Are panthers familiars now? I don’t think I’d want to curl up with one.

I do like the curly font on the title. It gets my attention and makes me want to at least read the synopsis.


What are your thoughts on this cover?

    This one’s okay with the moon in the background and the panther, but yeah I’m not sure what’s up w/ the hand. I guess she’s casting a spell?

    Yeah, the first thing I wondered was what was up with the girl’s expression as well as her hand. Honestly, I didn’t even notice the panther. Had to go back and look after I saw the mention! *ha* I do like the font and the background though. I think the cover would be better served to take off the girl and panther and just leave the atmospheric town scene…

      That’s a good idea, Brandee! I think the cover would look better without the girl and the panther!
