Which one by asharceneaux Which one by asharceneaux
The book is ready for release, except for a cover. Can't decide which one!!! Help me? 1, 2, or 3? If you vote, send me a PM or leave your email address in the comments and I'll send you a FREE copy of the book in your preferred digital format!

Here's the blurb:

Ruler of a withering kingdom, Ceron has come to terms with the fact that the only way to save his country is to carry on with one of his ancestors' worst traditions--the kidnapping and forced union with a mage from the neighboring kingdom. Through his short reign, he's fought hard to bury his hateful legacy and create a new, peaceful rule. The demons that have plagued his bloodline, however, have other plans. Vile plans. They want blood and war, death and destruction. Even as he fights them, tooth and nail, he realizes he can't fight them forever. 

Kaeda just can't get it right. A healer mage in the lush, bountiful Northlands, no matter of training seems to boost her seemingly powerful abilities. She's the oldest apprentice at her Holding, on the very verge of being sent to a conservatory where her link to her magic will be permanently severed. When the mysterious visitor from a southern state offers her an escape from the looming banishment, she takes him up without a second thought. Almost instantly, something happens, and all the power she's been told she has blossoms. Unfortunately, the stranger isn't who he says he is. 

He's the dreaded King of Nightmare and Shadow, the Lord of the Goblins, the Dark King Ceron. And he wants her. Despite being kidnapped, imprisoned, and deceived, Kaeda discovers she's meant for so much more than what Ceron intends. The very land of Aichinn embraces her. The sleeping goddess begins to awaken, and Kaeda is the only one who can bring her back to life. The dying kingdom has a chance to live again. With the awakening of the land's magic, Ceron's demons rise in full force, determined to wield the burgeoning power as their own. 

Kaeda is Ceron's only chance to save Aichinn--if he doesn't destroy her first.

I can see why you had trouble choosing! XD

For me I'd choose either 1 or 2, but mostly two. The 1st is more vibrant than the 3rd and more appealing given the context of the story, but the third one jumps out more and its as if she's falling further and further inside the trap. I would've liked it if the 2nd one though had a silhouette/ shadow below the girl right under your name (only kinda visible) with a kind of demonic grin on his face. It would give a good foreshadow as well as go along with the story better.

But still, out of the 3, I'd say the 2nd.

Hope I helped! :D

I'll play with the idea of a silhouette under the falling girl. Thank you!

I'm glad I happened to stumble across this-- the book seems very interesting! As for the cover, I would have to say I like number 2 a lot. Numbers 1 and 3 are visually interesting also, but I have to say that I personally think number 2 is best suited for a book cover. :)
