Cover Beach #7

Today I chose a book, which I added and removed it from my wishlist several times. I talk about Halo by Alexandra Adornetto. The US cover is pretty but the German cover has the 'je ne sais quoi'! It only is a whiff of color, that makes the difference. Furthermore there is another cover I'm in love with.

Bis eines Nachts drei Engel auf der Erde landen, vom Himmel gesandt, um dem Bösen Einhalt zu gebieten. Fasziniert vom Leben der Menschen, mischt sich Bethany, die jüngste und unerfahrenste der drei himmlischen Geschwister, unter die Schüler der Highschool– und verliebt sich Hals über Kopf in den attraktiven Schulsprecher Xavier.

Blurb: Thirteen-year-old Aluna has lived her entire life under the ocean with the Coral Kampii in the City of Shifting Tides. But after centuries spent hidden from the Above World, her colony’s survival is in doubt. The Kampii’s breathing necklaces are failing, but the elders are unwilling to venture above water to seek answers. Only headstrong Aluna and her friend Hoku are stubborn and bold enough to face the terrors of land to search for way to save their people. But can Aluna’s warrior spirit and Hoku’s tech-savvy keep them safe? Set in a world where overcrowding has led humans to adapt—growing tails to live under the ocean or wings to live on mountains—here is a ride through a future where greed and cruelty have gone unchecked, but the loyalty of friends remains true.

Cover Beach is a feature by Stephanie from Books Paradise. I love covers and I must confess that I usually buy my books by the cover. Yes, I know it isn't as right as rain... Cover Beach is also a post about covers I love (regardless of I would buy it), sometimes about the difference between German and English covers and something along those lines.

Ich muss ehrlich zugeben, dass mir der Schriftzug auf dem "Halo" US-Cover doch etwas besser gefällt, als der deutsche.
Wunderschöner Blogs übrigens :D
