Cover Talk: These Covers Are Anything But Dead

The cover for the sequel to Kimberly Derting's The Body Finder has been revealed! The Desires of the Dead, which will be released on March 15th of next year (beware the ides of March...spooky books coming your way on that day), and will be sporting a very similar cover to its predecessor, only brighter.

As with the previous cover, I really admired the flower with the dark background, and the ethereal glow it gives off. I think the pink of this new cover only accentuates that glow, and it is gorgeous! I was a little surprised that the covers are so similar though! It looks like they used the same flower, but just a different shot of it, and gave it a new color. That might be confusing to some, but I think it's prettiness comes out on top in the end.

What do you think?

Such a beautiful cover. I have yet to read The Body Finder - it's on my list for August.

I love that cover, I just put it up on my blog the other day :) I thought it was weird at first that they used the same flower too, but I think because the colors are so different people won't get them mixed up. I really do love the flower though, so pretty :)

"Beware the Ides of March"! Freaky. I like the cover, though. I haven't read The Body Finder, but it's on my list.
