Book By Its Cover - No Werewolves Allowed

Today's book by its cover review was released last Tuesday, but it had a cover too good to pass up. It is No Werewolves Allowed by Cheyenne McCray.


As a half-human, half-Drow private eye, Nyx is the go-to girl for tracking Demons in the night. So when several of New York City’s Werewolves go missing, Alpha Werewolf Dmitri Beketov hires Nyx for the job. But this time, she must leave the dark alleys and bright lights behind…
Nyx’s sixth sense tells her that life in the slow lane is a lot deadlier than it appears. Though she usually prefers to work solo, with this case she’s going to need all the help she can get. Enter Detective Adam Boyd: he’s watching her back, but is this human too sexy for his—and her—own good? Meanwhile, a powerful, malevolent force is exterminating paranorms and “unworthy” humans alike…and Nyx, still trying to get a foothold in her new surroundings, finds herself facing danger at every turn.

Lily's Thoughts:

Considering the werewolf vs vampire war going on in the previous post, I couldn't resist a werewolf themed cover. I've heard that purple is supposed to be the most appealing cover color. I don't know if that's true or not, but it certainly works for this cover. Nothing horribly new or original here, but it works. I do like how the light from above seems to give the cover model the illusion of wings. I also like the urban skyline beneath the her torso, giving it a gritty feel.

Well rendered cover for what looks to be an interesting read. I give it a thumbs up!

Helena's Thoughts:

[Helena is...still missing? I'm actually not quite sure... I am contemplating photoshopping her picture onto the back of a milk carton]

How fitting to put the lactose intolerant girl on a milk carton...lol. I am back for the mean time. I actually start an internship in Texas for six weeks this summer!!!! Can you pick up my excitement shower burst of light? Can't wait to palpate the inside of a cow...lol...or not. ;p

Anyways, cover time! I love the color...so I guess this purple being the new power color is a real thing. She glows, she is pretty and looks very formidable with her outfit/sword hilt. I personally would not want to meet her in a dark alley. The font is also very appealing to me. I would definitely read this.

LOL, well now I can't resist! When you leave for Texas, you're totally getting photo-shopped on a milk carton, just you wait!
