Cover Art - "Enemy Within" by Marcella Burnard

Heather at The Galaxy Express posted the cover for the science fiction romance Enemy Within by Marcella Burnard. Heather has been discussing SFR covers on her blog and wants to know what you think about this cover. Does it convey the balance of romance and tech that will help brand the SFR subgenre? Scoot over to The Galaxy Express and let her know your thoughts. The book will be released in November.
After a stint in an alien prison torpedoes her military career, Captain Ari Idylle has to wonder why she even bothered to survive. Stripped of her command and banished to her father's scientific expedition to finish a PhD she doesn't want, Ari never planned to languish quietly behind a desk. But when pirates commandeer her father's ship, Ari once again becomes a prisoner.

Pirate leader Cullin Seaghdh may not be who he pretends to be but as far as Cullin is concerned, the same goes for Ari. Her past imprisonment puts her dead center in Cullin's sights and if she hasn't been brainwashed and returned as a spy, then he's convinced she must be part of a traitorous alliance endangering billions of lives. Cullin can't afford the desire she fires within him and he'll stop at nothing, including destroying her, to uncover the truth.

  1. Where's the Romance? I see a woman with big guns, big boobs, and no hips - more of a video game exaggeration than a romantic heroine. Tell the publisher to put a woman artist in charge of tweaking this cover. It does not show any such balance of romance and sci-fi.

  2. Why is she standing with her butt stuck out like that? It looks really awkward and agree that the big boobs and big gun thing doesn't strike me as romantic at all.

    Susan, maybe it isn't suppose to appeal to us. More like a shoot'em up and show boobs kind of a flick.

  3. Not a fan of this cover. I can't really explain why now, as the badness is just flaunting itself at me. And that's NOT badass-edness either. Just plain old bad.

For bloggers comments are like water to a man (or woman) wandering in the desert. A precious commodity. I love to hear from everyone and do my best to respond to every post.
