This week I’m crazy about…
This cover has an eerie end-of-the-world feel to it that really comes across well thanks to the color scheme. I like the detailing in the female model’s wings and the view of the skyline is breathtaking.
Matthew’s father had lion’s feet and his mother had gills, and both fled the modern-day city to live in underground Safe, a secret community of freaks, ghost-whisperers, and disabled outcasts hidden beyond the subways and sewers. Raised underground, Matthew is responsible for the keeping of both Safe’s histories and the traumatized shapeshifter Ariel, the girl he took in, fell in love with – and can’t stop from constantly running away.
But Safe is no longer safe: the night after a frightening encounter in the sewers, Safe’s founder Atticus is murdered by the one person Safe ever exiled: mad Corner, whose coup is backed by an army of mindless, whispering shadows.
Only Matthew, Ariel, and a handful of unstable, crippled compatriots escape to the city that cast them out; the dangerous place he knows only as Above. Despite Ariel’s increasingly erratic behaviour and with the odds against them, Matthew must find a way to rescue Safe from Corner’s occupying army. But as his quest leads him through abandoned asylums and the dregs of urban poverty, Matthew discovers that the histories he’s devoted his life to aren’t true: Corner’s invasion — and Ariel’s terrors – are rooted in a history of Safe much darker and bloodier than Matthew ever imagined.
And even if he manages to save both home and Ariel, he may well lose himself.

You are so right! It does have a very eerie feel about it. Gorgeous 🙂
I’ve put this on my to-read list. Cheers for posting this.
Gorgeous Cover! I really love the ominous feeling of it but very pretty at the same time 🙂
Yeah I get a sort of apocalyptic vibe from this cover. I love the pretty wings though, plus it looks like my city 😛
This cover is really pretty! I love the sepia tone to it and that its so different from other covers!
Good choice 🙂
The synopsis sounds awesome too
I haven’t seen this cover before now! It really does make you sit up and take notice. Is this a Dystopian with fairies? I need to go look it up on Goodreads!
This is a KILLER cover. I LOVE it! I’ve not seen it before. The sepia tones work so well with the yellow glow of the lighting. I think the way it hits the fairy’s hair is a beautiful touch.
This one has really piqued my interest. A fairy-dystopian novel would be a creative twist.
OH I do Like this cover, the colors are pretty
This is a really nice cover. The coloring is gorgeous.
l have seen this cover around and it’s just gorgeous, l love the colour of this cover and how it’s all the same but different shades.
I love the sound of this book… a little bizarre and very promising! And the sepia-monochromatic tones of the cover are gorgeous. 🙂
Oh, this one sounds great!
