What Kills Me

The fight for survival begins.

An ancient prophecy warns of a girl destined to cause the extinction of the vampire race.

So when 17-year-old Axelia falls into a sacred well filled with blood and emerges a vampire, the immortal empire believes she is this legendary destroyer. Hunted by soldiers and mercenaries, Axelia and her reluctant ally, the vampire bladesmith Lucas, must battle to survive.

How will she convince the empire that she is just an innocent teenager-turned bloodsucker and not a creature of destruction? And if she cannot, can a vampire who is afraid of bugs summon the courage to fight a nation of immortals?

This cover is so dramatic, I love it. I like how the light is in the foreground on the waves and her skin and how it contrasts with her stark black dress and hair. I love how her head is thrown back, hair tossed in the wind, and how the water is crashing against her. I love how there's so much action there is in the foreground but the background is calm in muted green, gray and blue storm clouds.
