Judging A Book By It's It's Cover: A Chalice Of Wind

The cover I'm judging today is:

I kind of like the cover. I love the background, and the picture is both eerie and eye-grabbing. I do think that the cover's too busy. There's a lot of words with different fonts, and not a lot of room to put the words. So overall, I'm on the fence about this one. But it must've done something right, since I do own it.

Now that we've judged the cover, here's what the book is about:

After seventeen-year-old Thais Allard loses her widowed father in a tragic car accident, she is forced to leave the only home she’s ever known to live with a total stranger in New Orleans. New Orleans greets Thais with many secrets and mysteries, but none as unbelievable as the moment she comes face to face with the impossible— an identical twin, Clio.Thais soon learns that she and the twin she never knew come from a family of witches, that she possesses astonishing powers, and that she, along with Clio, has a key role in Balefire, the coven she was born into. Fiery Clio is less than thrilled to have to share the spotlight, but the twins must learn to combine their powers in order to complete a rite that will transform their lives and the coven forever.


  1. I like the cover as well. I'm undecided on the premise though, I will have to see what you think once you review it lol

  2. I think this is an eerie, interesting cover...nice! :)

  3. I like the design of the cover, but I'm not crazy about the titles. Which is the series title and which is the book title?

    Plus, A Chalice of Wind brings out the 8-year-old boy in me and makes me think of... well, another type of "wind". The title makes me want to giggle.

  4. these are really good books if you want a quick and easy read

  5. I like the cover of A Chalice of Wind. Plus it's a pretty good book. :)

  6. I don't really like the cover but I do want to read this. Mainly because I've read other books by Cate Tiernan and I really enjoyed them.
