      Agreed, but if it was just up to me, I’d have to pick ABOVE for cover of the year…it is just arresting.

    These are great book covers. I have always been a sucker for art. The only books of these I have read are from the Ilona Andrews series; now I need to check these out. I particularly like Above, Incarnation, and Blackbirds.
