I’ve received new cover art for DEMON PRINCESS: REIGN CHECK. A waayyyy different look, don’t you think? I’m digging it big-time. I like the darker vibe much better than the original pink version of this cover. I think it looks older and a bit more reflective of the tone of the books, which is darker than the previous bubblegum color might have let on. However, this new look definitely still maintains that fun, sarcastic edge of the books.
There’s shiny new back cover copy to go along with the shiny new cover art, too….
Nikki Donovan has had a lot to deal with since learning she was half human, half demon. But things take a darker turn when Rhys, a gorgeous—but potentially dangerous—faery king enrolls at her high school to investigate Nikki’s potential for fulfilling an apocalyptic prophesy. Nikki knows she’d never turn violent, and she certainly couldn’t destroy the world…could she?
Of course, all Nikki really wants is to be reunited with Michael, a Shadow creature whose status as her personal servant is further complicated by their undeniable attraction to each other. Even though the rules of the Shadowlands strictly forbid their romance, Nikki is determined not to let Michael go. But when she is summoned to the Underworld to appear before a demon council, it will take all her courage—and perhaps a bit of demon-level strength—to get herself out again.
From what I’ve heard, the cover with Michael and Nikki on it (either with the pink or another background cover) will likely still be the one used in Australia and New Zealand when it comes out there in July, but the black version is the one that will be in the U S of A. And Canada too. I think? Time will tell.
Here’s the original cover art:
What do you think? Do you have a preference between the two covers?
By the way, REIGN CHECK is out on May 25th. Not too far off!
