Awesome! Good similarity to your previous color, and the red glow gives off a distinctly ominous and sinister vibe, which would benefit a darker series installment.

I agree with Laurie about the matching fonts. Otherwise, it looks good!

Nice!

As a nitpick, any reason the word covenant is so much smaller than the word "voices" from the first book? I would think you'd want them to both be the same size 9would also fill up some of that empty space near the bottom.

The reason is he gave me control of the fonts .. lmao I have been playing with size *that ones on me* but yea, I will prbly make it bigger like the previous title before release.

Yeah, otherwise looks pretty good!

I'm having a skype call with my artist in a couple of weeks to try to figure out my book three cover. Currently no idea.  :'(

Oh so you are the lucky owner of that gorgeous 'painting' I'd like to hang in my room (your cover 2). Don't make cover 3 any more awesome, I don't think my poor heart could stand it ;)

Good idea to match the fonts on both covers. And sizes. And position of the book name/series name - I noticed those are reversed.

Nope, asked that, apparently it should be title then subtitle.. unless you already have a big name which would go first. The size I will redo during the editing phase.. it isn't as much copying the first books design as fixing what I did wrong with the first one so I can move on to the next covers, its a longer series in that world soo getting it right now would be good.

Thanks!

Big problem is that I haven't come up with a visual for book three that matches the first two (which I love). They all need to be out of this world.

I love both of them to, but I suppose it depends on where you took the third book.. if its the same artist then I am sure it will be phenomenal!

Big mountain with fortress... big mountain with dragon... big mountain with something big that appears in third book - god/goddess smiting the field in front of the huge mountain with bolts of lightning... or big mountain with dragon flying over fortress attacking the epic army coming to conquer or big mountain is exploding as a volcano and wiping out the fortress and the dragon because it wanted top billing on the cover. :P

I meant I liked cover 1 layout and think cover 2 name, title, subtitle should be arranged to match since they were different. I agree fixing cover 1 to match your series is best done now.

Nice ones!!

I'll have to figure it out. But book three has no large dragons  =  (

Book two and book four do!

Funny, that's what I thought of.. a dragon sitting on a mountaintop looking out over the city or a world in the book...

Maybe the mountain looking over the city with just a hint of a dragon in back/to the side, showing he is coming back?

Oh! I got it - they have slain the dragon and it's body is on a huge spike in front of the fortress which is in front of the mountain! HAH!

That of course  p*ss es off the dragon's relatives who come for revenge in the next book!

The answer is obviously no, you should not kill the dragon. Unless it's evil, in which case that's acceptable.

What about a cute little, blue (psychic) baby dragon? 8)
