Cover Envy is a weekly feature posted on Mondays or Tuesdays at As the Pages Turn where we find only the most beautiful, spectacular jaw-dropping covers in the world of books. Today’s Cover Envy Spotlight goes to Soul Control by C. Elizabeth and this is why I think it is so deserving.

Words that ring true for seventeen-year-old Saydi Gardiner upon discovering her ancestry. But if she has doubts, further confirmation is forthcoming and it comes in the form of a wickedly gorgeous Nathanael Braxton, when he steals her heart and cuddles into her sole – the last place the boy should be.
Nineteen-year-old Nathanael’s unrelenting good looks aren’t the only thing that make him dangerous – and he knows it! However, his caring human side struggles with a loyalty – a loyalty that binds him to the hunt for the soul that will give his family the power they seek. There’s only one problem: When he finds her, Nathanael falls in love with his prey – Saydi.
This cover is the very reason I love YA covers and I believe the covers alone are selling these books. Soul Control is no exception. This is one of the most beautiful covers I’ve seen in a long time, very artistically empowered! And…those…EYES! Love the green contrasting with the shades of red. Powerful imagery. Without reading the book which I haven’t yet, here’s what I think the cover is saying to me. Together two teenagers face evil in the face. I’m taking it the eyes must be the enemy. Very catlike! And what’s on the girl’s finger? Wings ePress did a marvelous job with this; I’d give it a big two thumbs up!
