Cover Art: Bloodborn (Other, #2) by Karen Kincy

Karen Kincy revealed her cover for book #2 of her Other series, Bloodborn,on the 2010: A Book Odyssey blog!

Due to a post I saw on Bookalicious I will no longer be posting “new” cover art directly on my blog but will be linking directly to the author’s post so that credit is given where it is due. Read the post by Pam if you haven’t! I’ve since changed my mind about this as I agree with the few authors that have commented. It’s about getting the word out about their book, not hits on their author website. While I respect what Pam’s post was about, in the end it’s about getting others to pass the word along. Word of mouth, er, bloggers posting is a strong selling tool.

I think it’s a pretty cover. I’m not sure if I like that the girl looks so much different than the girl on the cover of Other. Maybe it centers around a new girl? I dunno but I’ll find out. 🙂 Per Karen’s comment she confirmed that it’s not the main character from the first book. So now I’m excited to read it and find out what’s going on! Thanks to Karen for stopping by and commenting.

Summary (Goodreads)

Seventeen-year-old Gwen hides a dangerous secret: she’s Other. Half-pooka, to be exact, thanks to the father she never met. Most Americans don’t exactly roll out the welcome mat for Others, especially not the small-town folks of Klikamuks, Washington. As if this isn’t bad enough, Gwen’s on the brink of revealing her true identity to her long-time boyfriend, Zack, but she’s scared he’ll lump her with the likes of bloodthirsty vampires and feral werewolves.
