Cover Reveal: Embrace by Jessica Shirvington

A series which I've been waiting for patiently to be released in the US is Jessica Shirvington's The Violet Eden Chapters, which I first heard about from Aussie bloggers like Cass from Words on Paper and Nic from Irresistible Reads. Today, I'm helping Sourcebooks Fire finally reveal the cover of Embrace, the first book in the series.

But first, here's what's on the jacket flap:
It starts with a whisper.
            “It’s time for you to know who you are…”

Strange dreams leave her with very real injuries and there’s a dark tattoo weaving its way up her arms. The guy she thought she could fall in love with just told her he’s only half-human - oh, and same goes for her. And she keeps hearing a distant fluttering of wings.

Violet Eden is having a very bad 17th birthday.

But if angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden …
Doesn't that sound interesting? If you want to know more about the series or get a fuller description of Embrace, you can check out

Now without further ado, here's the cover of Embrace:
Pretty, right? Purple is my favourite colour so I obviously love the background; and since Violet is half-human, I like that the cover designer has chosen to focus on that, but hints at her angelic side by creating some ethereal looking wings. I also love how the font matches Violet's wings, and the falling black feathers kind of suggests that there's going to be a battle between light and dark, good and evil.

I've also included the behind-the-scenes cover shoot video. It's always fascinating to me seeing how publishers come up with the cover of a book.

So, what do you guys think of the cover and video?


  1. I think the cover for Embrace is so pretty too! I love the purple and ethereal wings... :)

  2. Welcome back, Zahida! :)

    Oh, and I know what you mean about angel books being disappointing but still not getting enough of them. I've never heard of Embrace before, but since it's an angel book and the cover is pretty much gorgeous (I love those wings!), I think I'll keep an eye on this.

  3. The purple color is great but the girl on the cover also looks like she has some fight in her too.

  4. Oh my gosh, I LOVED this book!!!! It was amazing! I think I might have to buy a hardcover just to have this GORGEOUS cover on my shelf LOL! Purple is one of my favourite colours right now too, and the way they did the wings is so pretty! :)

    I can't wait until this book comes out so you can read & love it too!

  5. Oh, that video about the making of the cover is so cool. I wish I had gone into that type of career. It looks fun.

    The book sounds great, but I'm nervous about it. I'm not a big fan of Angel stories.
