Day 19 – Favorite book cover.
So, this is really two covers. But they form one picture, so I’m counting them as one. It’s a sweet series, a more happy than usual post-apocalyptic fantasy book.
(Like Anne McCaffrey’s Pern series. Once, in the distant past, there was technology. Life takes place after the recovery from the apocalypse. Rural, back to walking /horses as the main mode of transportation. But with interesting stories and ruins.)
I love reading fantasy–paranormal fantasy, urban fantasy, steampunk, etc–but I have to admit many of the covers are the same.
Extreme close up of a woman’s face. Woman dressed in very little clothes, posed in such a way to suggest she may be missing part of her spine. Woman with her head inexplicably cut off by the top of the book, or with her head turned away/in shadow. And so on…
Fawn is a farmer’s daughter. Dag is a Lakewalker, part of a tribe that farmer’s mistrust and fear. But he and his people are doing something important–killing monsters called malices. When Fawn gets caught by a malice, she finds out a lot more about the world’s hidden dangers than a sheltered farm-girl could dream existed.
Dag has wonders at his disposal, too–as shown by the swirl of fireflies on the covers.
