As I have a HUGE love of awesome cover designs, I have decided to start a new regular feature, in which I select amazing book covers to showcase on my blog. I will choose these covers based upon my own subjective opinion of the extent to which a cover grabs my attention and provides an overall feel for the content of the story.
So, without further ado, here is the first of my favourite book covers. The incredible Crown of Stones trilogy by C.L. Schneider (one of the best fantasy authors I have ever read, coincidentally!) I remember, very clearly, the moment I first laid eyes upon the cover for Magic-Price (Book #1). I was fascinated immediately and popped straight on over to Amazon to buy the book, without even reading a blurb. I didn’t need to – the cover told me everything I wanted to know.
