Cover Reveal (#8)

I've been a fan of the House of Night series for years, and although Hidden is waiting (unread!) on my shelf and I am growing tired of the repetitive aspects of the saga, I still get all excited and shrill over cover reveals! Because come on - the HoN books always look gorgeous!

I'm loving the contrast between the picture and her name - it says Revealed, yet she's hidden. The thing I think I love most about this cover is it's continuity with the rest of the series - I love it when a series actually looks like it's a series. Of course, I'm making a dig at the UK covers - for nine books we  had the same cover, and then BAM! Hidden has a different cover. It was unnecessary, and now the series looks stupid on my shelf (ah, the problems of a bookworm!) I like that the US covers have kept up appearances.

Drastically altered after her fall at the end of Hidden, Neferet is now more dangerous than ever—and her quest for vengeance will wreak havoc on humans, as well as Zoey and her friends. Chaos is loosed in Tulsa and the House of Night is blamed. Can Zoey stop Neferet in time to keep her anger from escalating to full-on war? Or will someone else have to step in to take the fall?

Am I excited for this book? Yes. Why? Because it is the 11th instalment, meaning there is only one left! There is such a thing as overdoing a good thing, and the only other series I know of that has seriously overdone it is the Morganville books (book fourteen. I kid you not.) Zoey and her friends have lost their special spark, and unfortunately, a lot of the original fans are just waiting for the saga to come to an end.
