Cover Characteristic: Steampunk

Hosted by Sugar & Snark

Each week we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favorite cover’s with that characteristic. 

Author: Gail Carriger
Why I Picked It: I love the atmosphere of this cover. I like how she seems so prim and proper and the world around her is greyed out and chaotic. And I especially like the gargoyle.

Book Title: Whitechapel Gods
Author: S.M. Peters
Why I Picked It: Victorian meets the Devil. i's so creepy looking, I just had to pick it!

Book SeriesTrilogía Victoriana, Book #1
Author: Félix J. Palma
Genre: Steampunk, Historical Fiction
Release Date:  June 2011
