COVER LOVE: Archon by Sabrina Benulis

Hardcover, 368 pages
Expected publication: December 27th 2011
HarperCollins Publishers

Angela Mathers is plagued by visions of angels, supernatural creatures who haunt her thoughts by day and seduce her dreams by night. Newly released from a mental institution where she was locked away for two years, she hopes that her time at the Vatican’s university, the West Wood Academy, will give her a chance at a normal life. Unlike ordinary humans, Angela is a blood head — a freak, a monster, the possible fulfillment of a terrifying prophecy of overwhelming death and destruction. Only in Luz, the Vatican’s wondrous enclave, are blood heads accepted and encouraged to discover what kind of powers or special abilities they might possess.

But within West Wood, a secret coven plots, and demons and angels roam the streets searching for the key to open Raziel’s book — a secret tome from a lost archangel. Some are determined to destroy Raziel, while others, like the beautiful Supernal Israfel, one of the highest of the high, wish to free him. And when the Archon — the human chosen to possess the spirit of a dead angel — rises as foretold, they will control the supernatural universe.

Torn between mortal love and angelic obsession, Angela holds the key to Heaven and Hell — and both will stop at nothing to possess her.

I cannot wait to read this book! I got it for review and I am really excited! This cover is beautiful!!! Although, does anyone else think it is similar in some ways to Anna Dress in Blood by Kendare Blake? LOL I thought about that this morning as I was creating this post. Anyway, sounds like a good read. Has anyone else already read it?

What do you think of this cover?



  1. Such a beautiful cover. It's very similar to the Blood Right Cover. I was very fortunate at NYC Comic Con to pick this up. Looks like it will be an awesome read.

  2. I thought the exact same thing about the two covers when I first saw Archon! Anna Dressed in Blood is one of my favorite covers this year and this one is really cool too :-) Both books are on my TBR list for sure.

  3. Nekro is the cover artist for Blood Rights and a few others you'll see on his blog. It is his style though he hasn't the above listed. Though there is a spat of cover style copies going around lol!
