Two worlds. Two species. One terrifying secret.
In 2163, a polluted and overcrowded Earth forces humans to search for a new home. But the exoplanet they target, Exilon 5, is occupied. Having already begun a massive relocation programme, Bill Taggart is sent to monitor the Indigenes, the race that lives there. He is a man on the edge. He believes the Indigenes killed his wife, but he doesn’t know why. His surveillance focuses on the Indigene Stephen, who has risked his life to surface during the daytime.
Stephen has every reason to despise the humans and their attempts to colonise his planet. To protect his species from further harm, he must go against his very nature and become human. But one woman holds a secret that threatens Bill’s and Stephen’s plans, an untruth that could rip apart the lives of those on both worlds.
Will it attract my attention in a book store? Personally no. But that is simply because I don’t think I read much of the genre with covers like this.
Pros?Very beautifully designed, by that I mean it is photoshopped perfectly and the fonts, etc fits very well. It is clean, simple and direct.
Cons?I don’t particularly hate anything because I really don’t know how this cover could’ve designed better. Personally I won’t change one thing about the cover. If things have to change, the whole cover have to start from scratch and be designed from another POV (by that I mean that the redesigned cover have to be completely different from this one, so no changing the font, the colours etc).
Colour Scheme?I love it! It is crisp, bright but also misty-ly scary. <—-I hope that makes sense. 😛 I mean the planet totally attracted my attention because of the bright colours!
I love it! It seems like the font that a TV series will use for their program like…
It is not fancy, or crazy. It is simple but not “nooby”.
Unique Features?I just like the attention to detail for this cover. The cloudy “sky”, the cracked dirt, the fog-like atmosphere. It kind of chills you to the bone.
I just like how this cover makes me feel. It kind of reminds me of sci-fi, dangerous, paranormal (just a bit due to the moon/planet), and dystopic (dirt and city). I don’t know. It just gave me this “feeling”. I mean it is not the best cover ever, but it is good enough, and I have seen way worst.
7.5 out of 10.
What do you think?
And now a GIVEAWAY! (All my opinions above were mine. In no way did the authors told me what to write.)
