New Kelley Armstrong Cover! Sea of Shadows

It's been months since I've had a Kelley Armstrong cover to share. This one is a book scheduled for next year, April 8th 2014. :(  I do love that Kelley's YA books always come out right around my birthday . :) It's a YA fantasy and the blurb was enough to catch my eye, but the cover, WOWZA.



Blurb from author -
In the Forest of the Dead, where the empire’s worst criminals are exiled, twin sisters Moria and Ashyn are charged with a dangerous task. For they are the Keeper and the Seeker, and each year they must quiet the enraged souls of the damned.

Only this year, the souls will not be quieted.

Ambushed and separated by an ancient evil, the sisters’ journey to find each other sends them far from the only home they’ve ever known. Accompanied by a stubborn imperial guard and a dashing condemned thief, the girls cross a once-empty wasteland, now filled with reawakened monsters of legend, as they travel to warn the emperor. But a terrible secret awaits them at court—one that will alter the balance of their world forever.

And now, the cover -






According to Kelley's Tumblr post,
The bird is a variation on a thunder bird. If you zoom in, it’s made of leaves. They’re covered in blood. Really. Okay, I think they’re just supposed to be pretty fall leaves, but I say they’re covered in blood :)

I like it - the colors, the feather pattern, the whole thing. It's eye-catching and evocative. What do you think?
