Cover Crazy about Cry Wolf

Cover Crazy is a weekly meme hosted at The Book Worms

It was a bit of a toss up for a cover this week but when I was sorting through the bag of stuff heading to the second hand shop I hit on it.

I think this cover is great. I like the whole thing. It has a nearly haunted look about it if that makes any sense. The only thing that is a bit of a let down it the 'new' covers for Patricia Briggs' books. All the covers have been changed to these silhouette type covers than have nothing on the art work of the old covers.

Yeah...see what I mean...?

It is just missing everything that is amazing about the original! In my humble opinion...


  1. I hear ya, the new covers leave a little to be desired. Oh well, can't make everyone happy! I like the wolf in the newer edition. :)

    Yeah I like the way that the wolves eyes are glowing on the new cover but the women and the gun...not so much. Makes it look like she is some kind of crime fighter or something...


  3. The first cover is so much more enticing. I love the colors and the back lighting. The colors go nicely together, too. The second cover is just - blah to me, maybe because of the stark white backdrop?

    I know. It gives a totally mixed up impression of the book. The first has so much more atmosphere to it.

  5. i liked the first cover over the second one... the look on that girl's face is so intense and it's mirrored by that wolf!

    here's mine:

    The new cover looks almost sickly in comparison to the old one. The old covers leaps of the page at you with emotion and - just like you said - intensity. But the new one is just...bluh. lol.
