New Cover Alert: The Darkest Secret by Gena Showalter
FINALLY! It's been a long wait, but Gena Showalter released the cover and the blurb for The Darkest Secret this week.
Hmm, I have mixed feelings over this one. I personally am not a huge fan of the yellow but I suppose it makes the lettering standout more. The shadow behind the guy's head also makes it look like he is sporting a fro. However, I love how the model looks like he could be Egyptian. There is nothing worse than a cover model who looks nothing like how the character is supposed to look.
Also, the heroine is not who I expected her to be. I thought for sure it would be one of the harpy sisters and Haidee would be Strider's mate. Way to keep us on our toes Gena! The Darkest Secret is out April 1, 2011.
Here's the blurb:
"Keeper of the demon of Secrets, Amun can manipulate the darkest thoughts of anyone nearby. But when new demons possess him, the immortal warrior must be chained and isolated to protect those he loves. Death is his only hope of release—until he meets Haidee, a fellow prisoner whose beauty and hidden vulnerability draw him into a reckless test of his loyalty….
Haidee is an infamous demon assassin, raised to despise Amun’s kind. Yet how can she hate the man whose touch sets her aflame? But to save him, she must give herself body and soul…and face the wrath of a powerful adversary sworn to destroy her."
