Shelf Candy Saturday #3

Shelf Candy Saturday is a meme put on by Five Alarm Reviews where us bloggers pick a cover we love and talk about why we love it!

Today's Shelf Candy is Defiance by CJ Redwine.  It will be released August 28, 2012

I just LOVE this cover!  Her gorgerous red hair, her pose, and her cloak draped all over is just stunning.  And then, of course, the "hidden" castle or fort in the picture.  And I love the leaves falling all around the trees and how you can see mist and it seems a little blurry. Love it!


  1. Yep! It is a nice cover!
    Love the meme pic too!

  2. Nice! This is an interesting technique of adding the character as an overlay, rather than being a part of in the scenery. Thank you for sharing it. It is my first look at this one.

  3. I love this cover too!! It is exactly something I would be drawn to in a bookstore. The colors, the pose and her red hair are just stunning. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I am so in love with this cover! I just found this book on last waiting on Wednesday. Quite a few people had this book posted. I fell in love with the cover right away. I love the details, especially the city in the cape. my SCS. http://jennreneeread.blogspot.com/2012/03/shelf-candy-saturday-6.html

  5. This is absolutely a stunning, gorgeous cover!! I LOVE it!! The composition is very dynamic -- the sharp angles of the girl's black cloak seem to be clashing against each other, and yet, they flow upward, leading to her flaming red hair. She has taken a watchful warrior's stance; she's poised for sudden action. She seems so fearless, so determined. The trees in the background are silhouetted against the mist...they speak of fairies and mystical adventures! All of these elements tell me so much about the story! This is a book I want to read!!! And I want this cover as a framed poster in my bedroom!! Thanks for featuring it! : )
