Cover Lover

EMILIE AND THE HOLLOW WORLD by Martha Wells




While running away from home for reasons that are eminently defensible, Emilie’s plans to stow away on the steamship Merry Bell and reach her cousin in the big city go awry, landing her on the wrong ship and at the beginning of a fantastic adventure.
Taken under the protection of Lady Marlende, Emilie learns that the crew hopes to use the aether currents and an experimental engine, and with the assistance of Lord Engal, journey to the interior of the planet in search of Marlende’s missing father.
With the ship damaged on arrival, they attempt to traverse the strange lands on their quest. But when evidence points to sabotage and they encounter the treacherous Lord Ivers, along with the strange race of the sea-lands, Emilie has to make some challenging decisions and take daring action if they are ever to reach the surface world again.
This cover is almost too much stimulation for the eyes. All the red and gold with so many steam punk elements gives it good estimation of what to expect inside. Beautiful illustration and photos used make this really eye catching.

What do you think of this cover?

It's *almost* a little too busy, but not quite. I like it! Great for steampunk. :)

I think its a great cover for a Steampunk novel. I dont normally read steampunk, and thus am not fond of the cover. But for the book, it seems like a good fit

I don't read much Steam Punk either but it looks stragely appealing.
