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.
Eep. I am so not a fan of bad overlay blends with floating heads. There’s the random human head AND then there’s the random dragon head. Oh gosh and the lightning coming from nowhere hahaha.
Ok but I do like the font of the Dark Legacy title. The color is great too, gold, but not too bright. I’ll just say that one as a positive.
Would I pick this up? Nope.
I’m with Julie on the bad overlays. The individual components are ok, but not mashed together. I totally dig that gargoyle, but I don’t know what it has to do with the vampire story line. I feel like the lightning is a substitute for the man’s shirt, or is representing his shirt? Overall, there is way too much going on and I don’t know on which element to focus.
Seeing that this is #27 in a series, I’ll take a hard pass on Dark Legacy as well.
What are your thoughts on this cover?
