If you recall, I did a post about people holding glowy magic in their hands a few weeks ago, but, while I was looking for those covers, I also came across quite a few covers with people holding fire. Since fire isn't quite the same as magic, I decided to make it a separate post (plus the collages totally look prettier when the colors on the book covers match).
Anyway, it had to be done because I can't have the last name Burns and not have at least one post about fire, right? Right. I'm glad we're on the same page. Now enjoy the covers :-)
Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. This week I went rogue, so my topic is:
Books Covers featuring People Holding Fire in Their Hands
Fire by L.B. Gilbert
There’s not too much going on, but she looks badass, and I love her hair.
Destroyer Rising by Eric A. Asher
Also not too much going on, but the mixture of colors is pretty.
Wickedly Powerful by Deborah Blake
Did I say the first girl looked badass? This woman has clearly got some spunk. Plus a cat. And the whole cover looks interesting.
First Year by Rachel E. Carter
This one always kind of intrigues me.
Wendigo Rising by James A. Hunter
He just really looks like he doesn’t even want the stupid fire in his hand. (And from the blurb and the few pages I read of the first book in the series, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t lol.)
The Fire Seer by Amy Raby
This one is just pretty, no explanation needed.
Drowning in the Dark by Pippa DaCosta
Totally urban fantasy, and I love the style and overall feel.
The Witching Elm by C.N. Crawford
I know this one is just a guy, a bird, and… what exactly is that behind him? I thought it was a tree, a theory that seems to be supported by the title, but it also looks like wings? Anyway, the cover looks kind of simple, but I think it’s beautiful.
Lioness of Kell by Paul E. Horsman
I love the style and colors of this.
The School of Hard Knocks by Christopher G. Nuttall
Ummm, is this not amazing?! Everything from the colors to the image/art itself is gorgeous.
