I'm not sure what I was expecting for the cover of Ashen Winter, but I was very surprised when this image first appeared up on my cover watch shelf. I think I was expecting a more subdued cover. With a title like Ashen Winter I wasn't expecting the bright pop of red/pink on the cover, especially when you compare it to the desolate cover of Ashfall which is was initially drew me to the book.
I guess the cover leaves me with a lot of questions. the first being what exactly is that redish/pink in the background? To me it looks like muscle tissue, and if that is indeed what it is, why is it featured on the book cover? my second question is who's hands are on the cover, is it Alex and Darla's maybe Alex and one of his parents? With just over 6 months till the book is released this book is absolutely on my must read list.
