An excerpt from FEVER
A breeze rolls up from the water, and I realize at once how numb the cold air and wet clothes have made me. We should find someplace to stay, but where? I sit up and take in our surroundings. There’s sand and rocks for several more yards, but beyond that I can see the shadows of buildings. A lone freight truck lumbers down  a faraway road, and I think soon it’ll be dark enough for Gatherer vans to start patrolling the area with their lights off. This would be the perfect place for them to hunt; there don’t appear to be any streetlights, and the alleyways between those buildings could be full of scarlet district girls.
Gabriel, of course, is more concerned about the blood. He’s trying to wrap my palm with a piece of seaweed, and the salt is burning the wound. I just need a minute to take this all in, and then I’ll worry about the cut. This time yesterday, I was a House Governor’s bride. I had sister wives. At the end of my life, my body would end up with the wives who died before me, on a rolling cart in my father-in-law’s basement, for him to do only he knows what.
But now there’s the smell of salt, sound of the ocean. There’s a hermit crab making its way up a sand dune. And something else, too. My brother, Rowan, is somewhere out here. And there’s nothing stopping me from getting home to him.
 So what do you guys think?! I honestly loved Wither, so I cannot wait to continue this story. Oh and don't even get me started on the excerpt! I really really can't wait!!!
 The cover, I like it, it is beautiful. BUT I deff can honestly say I liked the cover for Wither much more.

Here is the whole fold out:
NOW, when it comes to the whole fold out..I like it more then Withers fold out..but still if we're just talking cover wise..Wither was much better...I feel like Rhine..looks almost reminds me of a picture of Ke$ha I once saw..OH WELL still love the cover (:

So what do you guys think of the cover/excerpt?(:

I get what you mean by her looking like Ke$ha, haha! Still, other than that I think the cover is pretty nice! :)

Very pretty cover. I still need to read the first one :)

Yikes! is what I thought when I first saw this cover..haha! Sadly, I haven't read Wither yet..yeah I know I know. I WILL THOUGH soon...

Anyways I agree when you say that the girl almost looks wasted..wonder if that has anything to do with the plot? hmmm..

Not a big fan of this one. The green color looks so ugly on this cover.
