"Don't judge a book by its cover" does not happen. When I am looking at new books, trying to find something new, the cover is the first thing that makes me pick it up. From there, the title and synopsis influence my interest and then the book itself. Covers spark the imagination and hint at what the book is about.
Anne Elizabeth Stengl's books have some of the most beautiful covers. And today is the reveal of the cover for her newest novel. So here is the cover of Draven's Light, releasing May 25, 2015.

In the Darkness of the Pit
The Light Shines Brightest
Drums summon the chieftain’s powerful son to slay a man in cold blood and thereby earn his place among the warriors. But instead of glory, he earns the name Draven, “Coward.” When the men of his tribe march off to war, Draven remains behind with the women and his shame. Only fearless but crippled Ita values her brother’s honor.
The warriors return from battle victorious yet trailing a curse in their wake. One by one the strong and the weak of the tribe fall prey to an illness of supernatural power. The secret source of this evil can be found and destroyed by only the bravest heart.
But when the curse attacks the one Draven loves most, can this coward find the courage he needs to face the darkness?
