Do Judge a Book by its Cover (9)

"Do" judge a book by its cover is a weekly meme hosted here. Have you ever picked up a book because of its cover? Of course you have. Well here we get to look at some of the outstanding covers that are coming out soon! To participate, just link back here and grab the pic, and let everyone know what your favorite cover of the week is!

This weeks fantastic cover is:

For Nick Pardee and Silla Kennicot, the cemetery is the center of everything.

Nick is a city boy angry at being forced to move back to the nowhere town of Yaleylah, Missouri where he grew up. He can’t help remembering his mom and the blood magic she practiced – memories he’s tried for five years to escape. Silla, though, doesn’t want to forget; her parents’ apparent murder-suicide left her numb and needing answers. When a book of magic spells in her dad’s handwriting appears on her doorstep, she sees her chance to unravel the mystery of their deaths.

Together they plunge into the world of dark magic, but when a hundred-year-old blood witch comes hunting for the bones of Silla’s parents and the spell book, Nick and Silla will have to let go of everything they believe about who they are, the nature of life and death, and the deadly secrets that hide in blood. 
My Thoughts: I really like this one. I love the contrast between the red and black. And I really love the way the flower turns into birds. The trees in the background give the book an eerie feeling and The girl makes me want to know more! This is a great cover and I can't wait to read Blood Magic when it comes out April 26 2011
That's my cover judge, Whats yours?

I love the contrast created from the red on black, too! I never noticed before that the petals turned into birds until now, though, but that's pretty neat!
