One thing I really like about the covers is that they are very noir and they take a tired red, black, and white color scheme and really make it dark and fun. I especially love the cover of White Cat because it's one I've witnessed both guys and girls pick up.
The fact that publishers often revamp covers of series is something that has always frustrated my complex about having matching covers, but it is something that I've almost come to expect. So I wasn't surprised to see that the Curseworkers books got a cover lift (it's already happened once), but I was surprised to see just how different these new covers are.
Note that the first version of Black Heart won't be printed.
I like the use of color in the new covers--very nice. And they continued a theme with Cassel on one cover, Lila on another, and both on the final cover. And I do really like the design--it's very unique and very fun. It demands to be looked at.
My only issue with them is I'm unsure of how well they really fit the books and whether or not a guy will be as likely to pick up the first book. The first covers went along with the content a lot better. And...is it just me, or does the new White Cat cover seem too suggestive of the twist in the book?
What do you think of the cover change?
