They have some awesome covers like the one from The Cat or The Storm which pleased my inner cover addict for all things concerning abs and pecs and tanned skin. The news of a new series dawning from Jean Johnsons's pen came to me a while ago and my interest was once again piqued. Never in a million years did I expect this kind of cover. At one hand I love it, the composure, the natural look of the female with a feral tiger in the background. The color scheme is pleasing to the eyes and all in all I say; Way to go! But...the first thing that popped in to my mind and out of the cover was the: Oh-My-Gawd-Tuck-That-Shirt-A-Little-More-Sideways-And-You-Can-Poke-My-Eyes-Out!
I am certainly not a prude when it comes to covers, of course I lurve me some abs and pecs over females but the premise of this series seems very female driven. So I get that the cover needs to reflect that but jeez, they are really...out there, sort of.
Okay, now that I have got that out of me system let me give you the synopsis:

The spellbinding prequel to the national bestselling Sons of Destiny series.
Decades before the shattering of the empire of Aiar and hundreds of years before the time of the Sons of Destiny, Tava Ell Var, a female shapeshifter, became the leader of the people of the Shifting Plains.
An enigmatic figure, Tava never knew her mother - apart from the brutal story of her life as documented by her father. Her family history served as a warning about danger on the Shifting Plains, the land Tava now leads. When her father is murdered, she encounters Kodan, a warrior who recognizes the power that emboldens the strange, beautiful, and resilient Tava.
