Seventeen-year-old Ashlyn is one interview away from her future when she first sees the demons. She thinks she’s losing her mind, but the truth is far more frightening: she can see into the Darkworld, the home of spirits– and the darkness is staring back.
Desperate to escape the demons, Ash accepts a place at a university in the small town of Blackstone, in the middle of nowhere – little knowing that it isn’t coincidence that led her there but the pull of the Venantium, the sorcerers who maintain the barrier keeping demons from crossing from the Darkworld into our own world.
All-night parties, new friendships and a life without rules or limits are all part of the package of student life – but demons still stalk Ash, and their interest in her has attracted the attention of every sorcerer in the area. Ash is soon caught between her new life and a group of other students with a connection to the Darkworld, who could offer the answers she’s looking for. The demons want something from her, and someone is determined to kill her before she can find out what it is.
In a world where darkness lurks beneath the surface, not everyone is what they appear to be..
I think the cover is busy as is. Pretty, but busy. Eliminate the purple cat eyes and it looks great. Seriously, it would look incredible without that one purple piece. The purple and the eyes up top end up creating dual focal points on the image and you want only one.
I’m a huge fan of the frosty covers. I like the blend of the frost and the white font. It’s very readable and meshes well with the rest of the cover.
You know what’s even more incredible? The cover model actually looks cold! Plus, I love her expression. She looks like she just discovered Harry Potter is real and she’s not quite sure if that’s a good or bad thing. (It would be cool since that means that there are wizards and bad because that means that WE really are muggles. :( )
