The Tavernier Stones by Stephen Parrish

What's the genre? What is it you like or don't like about this cover? Does it make you want to know more about the book? Does it make you want to BUY the book? Discuss.


  1. Another really handsome and inviting cover. To me it looks like a fantasy. Perhaps set in Victorian times, but not Steam Punk.

    Everything is appealing about this cover. The stamps and their placement, the ruby in the middle, the title font, and the overlay of runes on top. I may have to look this one up.

  2. Very attractive cover but it doesn't really say much about the genre. Possibly fantasy, but what kind?

    My concern about this is the lack of genre specificity.

  3. Conspiracy theory. Lost scrolls, blood lines, grails, atlantis, pyramids, nazi relics, religious icon which must be found before bad guy destroys the world. I love 'em.

    Nice cover.

  4. Great cover. Attractive colors, love the stamps which look like it could indicate international intrigue. Symbols for code, definitely treasure hunting. Good clean cover, strong.

  5. I like this cover. It has sort of a "National Treasure" feel to it. It could fall into a lot of different genres, but the cover is enough to make me stop and look.
