I will agree that just by looking at the cover, you can figure out what kind of book it is.

The cover picture is definitely unique. It gives the impression that the book is going to be about something
scary- horror, supernatural, or science fiction.

Yes, I don't know who made the book cover but they really did a great job capturing the essence of what the book is about.

The cover of this book is great. It does remind me of Poe. The cover and the book goes together. Sometimes I read books and I wonder why they choose the cover that they did.

It kind of reminds me of Stephen King's cover for The Gunslinger! Definitely creepy!

I do love the cover and agree with the Poe comparison. I love how the bird is hunched over a bit. It's striking. I definitely paused the first time I saw it and that sells books.

I also really enjoyed the cover of the book - very Sleep Hollow-esque. However, it really didn't have much to do with the story line! I guess the thrilling part of it was relevant though. Now that I am writing this, I am curious why the town was named Raven's Peak.

The cover of this book is really good. When I first saw it I wanted the book. But for some reason I thought that this is epic fantasy book with great battles and heroes. Maybe it was because of the raven, the skull and grim background. It reminds me battlefield after battle. Now I know that it is contemporary supernatural horror.

The cover creates an interesting atmosphere. By just looking at it, you could ascertain the genre of the book and it invites the reader to read what the book is about. Its tone is very suitable that it reflects on what is inside of that book. Generally, the cover image encourages me to read it and it’s perfect for the novel.

I agree completely and think it really does do the book justice! It certainly caught my attention!

I like how all the books have a dark cover to them. I liked the cover of The Ninth Circle as well.

The book cover is great! It gives off its genre before you read its content. I would definitely read this book because of its cover.

The book does have a very interesting look to it. The way that the raven looks against the golden background is very dramatic looking.

There is very dramatic feel to it. The image of the raven seems like such a powerful symbol.

I think that most of us are probably guilty of judging a book by it's cover... and this one would definitely end up on my shelf. I am obsessed with ravens and skulls, and all things twisted and supernatural (in fiction) to be fair. This cover looks awesome and just creepy enough to hit my nerd buttons.
