Uncovered (51): A Conspiracy of Alchemists

It's Friday so that means it's time for Uncovered, my weekly cover love post. This week I have A Conspiracy of Alchemists by Liesel Schwarz. As you can tell from the cover, this is a steampunk series. This is a very busy looking cover, more so than a lot of the covers that I am drawn to. However, I really like all of the elements. I like the unusual perspective of the female looking out into what should be a flat image but is instead a busting city. Of course there's the Eiffel Tower and a dirigible to boot. What could be better than steampunk Paris?

This cover is like a puzzle where, the longer I look at it, the more I see. I wish I had a copy of this book so I could see the picture frame up close. It looks like there are some cool details in there. Female character looks like a badass gunslinger with fashionable headwear. And who doesn't like redheads? While the font doesn't necessarily match what I think the tone of the book is (looks a little too graffiti style for me), I like the boldness of the pink and the placement of the title. It would definitely jump out at me in a bookstore. 

A Conspiracy of Alchemists doesn't hit bookshelves until March 5, 2013 (Del Rey). 

Love it, hate it? What city would you like to see a steampunk book set it?


  1. Oh I really want to read this book! I got approved to read it on Netgalley so I would like to read it soon. We'll see. Sounds interesting though :)

    1. i keep waffling on whether or not i want to request it on ng. i want to read it but then i get the netgalley guilt. haha.

  2. Gorgeous cover! And I adore steampunk, but the last thing I need is another book to read. :D
