Cover Art - "Unholy Ghosts" by Stacia Kane

Stacia Kane revealed the cover for Unholy Ghosts today, the first book in a new urban fantasy series coming out October 27.

THE AFTERLIFE IS ONLY THE BEGINNING.

The world is not the way it was. The dead have risen and constantly attack the living. The powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being harassed by the deceased. Consequently, there are many false claims of hauntings from those hoping to profit. Enter Chess Putnam, a fully-tattooed witch and freewheeling Debunker and ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for nailing the human liars or banishing the wicked dead. But she’s keeping a dark secret from the Church: a little drug problem that’s landed her in hot and dangerous water.

Chess owes a murderous drug lord named Bump a lot of money. And Bump wants immediate payback. All Chess has to do is dispatch a very nasty species of undead from an old airport. But the job involves black magic, human sacrifice, a nefarious demonic creature, and crossing swords with enough wicked energy to wipe out a city of souls. Toss in lust with a rival gang leader and a dangerous attraction to Bump’s ruthless enforcer, and Chess begins to wonder if the rush is really worth it. Hell, yeah.

  1. Chess's hair looks like a wig - but that's the effect fringes/bangs have on the overall look of a hairdo ;-)

  2. I read a little snippet from this on Stacia's LJ. It sounds really good and I like the cover a lot (=

    && I totally agree about the hair Tez at least in general about the fringe/bang thing! Although it looks good on the cover Chess (=

  3. As someone who wears bangs, I think Chess's hairdo is both rad and awesome. And I'm fairly sure I don't wear a wig... ;)

    On to more important matters--that's a stellar cover, very moody and mysterious, and the title font is awesome. (I'm a font dork, I notice these things.)

    I had the privilege of giving a quote for UNHOLY GHOSTS a few months ago and I can state unequivocally it's one of the best things I've read this year. It has the potential to be a game-changer for the genre.

  4. Tez it kinda reminds me of the Betty Paige look.

    Mishel sounds like a unique premise. The cover is an eye-catcher.

    Wow Caitlin thanks for the recc. A 'game-changer' is high praise indeed. And it is great that the genre keeps injecting itself with new ideas. UF is going to continue to be a strong genre for some time to come.
