Shadows on the Soul Cover
I've gotten my first look at the cover art for Shadows on the Soul, my September entry in the Guardians of the Night series. I think it's really dramatic and striking. It doesn't have the urban feel of the previous two covers, and there are discrepancies between the characters' appearance in the book vs. on the cover, but I still think it captures the dark and sexy mood of the book really well.
I also like the back cover blurb:
The baddest of the bad boys . . .
Gabriel is a five-hundred-year-old vampire with the soul of a Killer. He has defeated his mother in a battle for the territory of Baltimore, and vowed to take vengeance upon his father, the Master of Philadelphia, for a centuries-old betrayal.
Jezebel, Gabriel's new fledgling, is a soul as scarred as his own, yet Gabriel finds that the ice around his heart slowly melts when she is near. But one of Gabriel's ancient enemies has targeted her--and if Gabriel wants to save her, he will have to abandon his plans for revenge and join forces with his father.
The question is not whether or not Gabriel can redeem himself from his past, but whether he can ever forgive himself.
I'd love to hear everyone's opinion about this new cover!
