Cover Crush: Circle of Shadows by Imogen Robertson

We all know we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but in today's increasingly competitive market, a memorable jacket can make or break sales.

I am not a professional, but I am a consumer and much as I loath admitting it, jacket design is one of the first things I notice when browsing the shelves at Goodreads and Amazon. My love of cover art is what inspired Cover Crush, a weekly post dedicated to those prints that have captured my attention and/or piqued my interest. Enjoy!

The blood splatter on the cover of Imogen Robertson's Circle of Shadows is a bit much, but I love the symmetry of this design! The geometric shapes catch my eye every time I see this image and I like how it sucks in my attention by extending past the figure at the center. The arches, pillars, and ceilings provide a nice frame and add distinctive and appealing quality to the jacket.
