Judging A Book By It's Cover: Bitter Frost

The cover I'm judging this time is:

While I don't really like the choice of photo used for this cover, I really love the colors and basic layout of it. The fonts, especially the title font, are really eye-grabbing and pretty much save this cover, in my opinion. The cover immediately makes me think of two possible genres for the book: vampires (super pale skin), or Gossip Girl-type books (weird lip color).

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

All her life, Breena had always dreamed about fairies as though she lived among them...beautiful fairies living among mortals and living in Feyland. In her dreams, he was always there the breathtakingly handsome but dangerous Winter Prince, Kian, who is her intended. When Breena turns sixteen, she begins seeing fairies and other creatures mortals don t see. Her best friend Logan, suddenly acts very protective. Then she sees Kian, who seems intent on finding her and carrying her off to Feyland. That's fine and all, but for the fact that humans rarely survive a trip to Feyland, a kiss from a fairy generally means death to the human unless that human has fairy blood in them or is very strong, and although Kian seemed to be her intended, he seems to hate her and wants her dead.

  1. I've read this book and I just can;t help comparing it to Julia Kagawa's Iron King series. I have to say, if compared to the Iron King, this book falls short.

    I thought Bitter Frost wasn't as "serious" as it should be. I mean, this girl is thrust into the world of fae and the only vibe I got from her perspective was "nonchalant". Does that make sense? During the more seious parts, it fell short of what it could be, I guess.

    Anyways... it's a good book, just not what I like to read. :)
