So this week Bree Despain revealed the cover for the third book in the Dark Divine series. And there it is. You can click if you want to see it bigger.
I like the cover, and I like the IDEA of the pose, but honestly... it kinda creeps me out. What's up with the evil claw-hands? And at first glance I thought there was some boob-age showing. For me, this series has never been a "bare-back/chest" kinda story. If they cut off the hands/torso and just left the legs facing backwards, I think I'd like it a lot more.
EDIT: I decided that this cover needed my photoshop assistance. I am not skilled enough to completely remove the font and change it to be more script-y like the others, or move it lower on the cover, so this is the best I could do. But this is more like what I would want to see:
I do love the color, though! But just for kicks and giggles, and since it seems to be tradition, here's my green-ified version of my adjusted cover:
What do you think about the actual cover? What do you think about my adjustments?
Here are the other two, in case you're curious.
