Today's book by its cover review is the new release Dark Flame, latest installment of Alyson Noel's young adult series The Immortals.

Purple! Pretty! The forefront centering of the candle proves it to be an important element to the story. I love how it illuminates the two girls in the background and the shadowing plays off her collarbones. The girl in front seems more innocent while the one behind, all cloaked in shadows seems about to pull a disappearing act. It leaves me wondering just what Miss Dark Shadows is up to or hiding. Title is very fitting. I am a stranger to the immortals series, yet I have heard great comments about it. I tend to gravitate towards her covers in the bookstore, just never managed to actually sit down and read one. Maybe it's finally time to add her to the TBR pile.
I can't say it better than Helena on this one, so I'm not going to try. I'll add simply, ditto.
