cinderella

This version of Cinderella is yet another example of the incredible work of K Y Craft. Her art always seems to be full of light and minute detail. In this case, that attention to detail is not confined to the cover. This is the kind of book that makes you want to go buy prints of the artwork and hang it around your house. Actually, it is a dream of mine to own some of her original artwork. It looks like I may need to win the lottery first, though.

Gotta love that Cover Art.

The Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill is lucky enough to have a cover containing art by K. Y. Craft. I have yet to read this book, and I know that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but this cover really makes me want to read the book. Heck, there is already some talk of making it into a movie.

Well, I suppose that the book description also has something to do with my interest. Amazon.com lists the description thusly: “After the death of her beloved father, headstrong princess Thirrin Freer Strong-In-The-Arm becomes warrior queen of her homeland, Icemark, defending it from a formidable invader. Despite Thirrin’s bravery and the support of Oskan, the Witch’s son, the task proves more difficult than Thirrin ever dreamed. She must assemble a force to rival her opponent. And, in the chill winter of Icemark, she only has until spring to unite the strange beasts and frightening creatures who live just outside her country. Ultimately, it is Thirrin’s vision and determination that will see her through to victory.”

Have any of you read this book? What did you think? Is it as good as its cover would suggest?

I read Son of the Mob by Gordon Korman a while ago, and I really enjoyed its Romeo and Juliet dynamic. (The son of a big time mobster and the daughter of an FBI agent fall in love, and it ends up being not as straightforward as you’d think.) I also think that it would make an entertaining film. Mostly though, I love the cover art. This is a book that gets checked out a moment after you put it on the display. I know that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but…well I did. The use of color and and the figure’s stance really draw the eye to the roses that are held like a gun. How cool is that? The best part is that the cover really reflects the story itself. Anyway, this is one of my favorite covers, so, I thought I’d share it with y’all.

Like what you see? Why not place a hold on the book?
