Uncovered (68): Boneshaker

Boneshaker by Cherie Priest

Hi, everyone! Happy Friday to you all and thanks for stopping by this week's Uncovered post. This week I have a really great cover from Cheri Priest's Clockwork Century series. Boneshaker is the first book in the series and what a looker it is. I picked this one up just recently at the LA Times Festival of Books. I'd had my eye on it before then but finally purchased it just a few months ago (which reminds me that I need to finish my recap of LATFoB still).  I really love this cover though. I love illustrated/painted covers in general and I think this cover is really eye catching and well done and really gives you a flavor for what the book is going to be like.

I really like the extreme close up on the face, which you don't normally see on steampunk or urban fantasy books. I like that you can see the dirigible in the reflection of the goggles (and what says steampunk more than goggles and dirigibles?). I also love the muted palette and how the gold goggle really pop against it. Throw in a great font and it all adds up to a pretty awesome looking cover. I can't wait to read this one! :)
