BLURRED (Kissed by Death #2) by Tara Fuller
Coming July 2, 2013
I love this new trend of the wispy-smoky elements on covers – whether used in the dress of the cover model or to highlight the book’s title. It works especially well for a book entitled BLURRED.
I like how the softness of the model’s dress and the smoky black “banner” beneath the title contrast with the dry, cracked earth and rocky outcropping beneath and behind both the models. I also like the contrast between the black and white elements.
And as with the the first cover for INBETWEEN, which I’ve included below, I love both the title and byline font and the similar, but subtly different, font used for the remaining text.
While there seems to be quite a bit of an issue with the skirt extension – as if it wasn’t quite blended correctly and the flow of the skirt folds appear disjointed and the skirt’s length to create that extension isn’t cohesive with the other part of the skirt – I like the fact that there is a transparency/sheerness so that you can see the earth and the male model’s jeans beneath it.
And I love the tagline. I’m just so curious about what, for Chase or Anaya, could be worse than death.
I definitely think this cover is a good match for the first cover in the series and side-by-side on a bookshelf they will be very appealing.
Cash is haunted by things. Hungry, hollow things. They only leave him alone when Anaya, Heaven’s beautiful reaper, is around. Cash has always been good with girls, but Anaya isn’t like the others. She’s dead. And with his deteriorating health, Cash might soon be as well.
Anaya never breaks the rules, but the night of the fire she recognized part of Cash’s soul—and doomed him to something worse than death. Cash’s soul now resides in an expired body, making him a shadow walker—a rare, coveted being that can walk between worlds. A being creatures of the underworld would do anything to get their hands on.
The lines between life and death are blurring, and Anaya and Cash find themselves falling helplessly over the edge. Trapped in a world where the living don’t belong, can Cash make it out alive?
Tara Fuller writes novels. Some about grim reapers. Some about witches. All of course are delightfully full of teen angst and kissing.
Tara grew up in a one stoplight town in Oklahoma where once upon a time she stayed up with a flashlight reading RL Stine novels and only dreamed of becoming a writer. She has a slight obsession with music and a shameless addiction for zombie fiction, Mystery Science Theater, and black and white mochas.
Tara no longer lives in a one stoplight town. Now she lives with her family in a slightly larger town in North Carolina where they have at least three stoplights.
Since the car crash that took her father’s life three years ago, Emma’s life has been a freaky — and unending — lesson in caution. Surviving “accidents” has taken priority over being a normal seventeen-year-old, so Emma spends her days taking pictures of life instead of living it. Falling in love with a boy was never part of the plan. Falling for a reaper who makes her chest ache and her head spin? Not an option.
It’s not easy being dead, especially for a reaper in love with a girl fate has put on his list not once, but twice. Finn’s fellow reapers give him hell about spending time with Emma, but Finn couldn’t let her die before, and he’s not about to let her die now. He will protect the girl he loves from the evil he accidentally unleashed, even if it means sacrificing the only thing he has left…his soul.
