*Cover Reveal* - ORENDA by Ruth Silver


Title: Orenda
Author: Ruth Silver
Expected Publication: Spring 2014
Publisher: Patchwork Press
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Cover Design: Erica Crouch

A sword wielding girl, an eternal suit and an alternate universe.

Lil has a gift, one she never thought possible as she finds herself awake after a strange dream with the tell-tale sign that what she dreamt was in fact real.  The dreamscape, was more than just a premonition it happened.  She’d been momentarily tossed into another dimension.  Where most would consider her crazy, not her best friend Bray.

In another reality, one similar and yet slightly different Willow has been kidnapped by the sorceress turned demon, Eilith.  Rawlie, Willow’s friend and companion crosses to our universe for help and brings Lil into his world.  Filled with frightening creatures and magical elements, Lil demands to go home, until she discovers Bray has been taken by Eilith as well.  Unable to watch her best friend die, she joins forces with Rawlie, Jamie and the others to hunt down Eilith and rescue those they care about.

Whew, will you look at this cover…captivating, mystical, and gorgeous! My curiosity is getting the best of me…I want to know what the young woman is doing and what is that strange light coming from her hand? Is it an evil presence like the one mentioned in the synopsis or something meant to be good? I want to know what she is looking at in the water... is a creature? It could be just about anything I suppose, and that intrigues me. The fact of not knowing is the driving factor for my interest in this cover!

I love the way her reflection in the water looks so realistic, it seems like I could literally reach out and touch it! I dig the serene background and color spots they are very beautiful! I like the font used for the book title and author’s name, they stand out but mix well with the color scheme. Overall, between the amazing cover and the blurb… I’m sold. This one has made it to my TBR. 

What do you guys think? 
Would you want to read this book just from seeing the cover?
