Cover Combat: Heart of the Dragon (Atlantis #1)

Cover Combat is a weekly meme hosted by Anagha at Book Spark. It's something that I enjoy participating in at her blog and thought I'd give it a go here. Ana usually has a giveaway to go along with it, thanks to the support of various authors offering up copies of their books. Unfortunately, I don't have anything to giveaway but I hope you'll participate just the same.

I am guilty of judging a book by it's cover! I admit it. A nice cover really helps to draw my attention to a book. I don't necessarily let the cover alone decide whether to buy it though, but an appealing cover goes a long way!

This weeks cover combat is Heart of the Dragon, book one in Gena Showalter's Atlantis series.

Grace Carlyle's world was about to change . . .
Deep in the jungle on the trail of her missing brother, Grace never expected to find a secret world populated by mythological monsters -- nor guarded by a sword-wielding being whose beauty put mortal men to shame.
Darius en Kragin belongs to a race of shape-shifting warriors sworn to guard Atlantis and kill all travelers who stray within its boundaries. Yet when Grace stumbles into his realm, he finds himself tempted to betray his centuries-old vow.
Now their forbidden love will either bring their worlds together -- or tear them both apart.

  1. This is the only time *I* get to participate as a reader in Combats and I love it. Thank you! :D
    I have to admit I haven't really read anything by Gena Showalter (Alice in Zombieland will be my first).

    For shape-shifting warriors and mythological monsters, #1 and especially #3 look too tame. I like #2 and #4 though. Still, I can't say I *love* any of them - all those covers seem kind of like they were made by an amateur on a PC. If I had to pick though, I suppose I'd go with 2010 ebook Cover #4.

    Thanks for the fun! Even though it may seem I'm indirectly complementing myself, I'm not. Or am I? :P
