Cover Crazy: Snow Like Ashes series

The purpose of Cover Crazy is to feature a cover each week for us to admire its beauty. I really like this idea since there are so many great covers out there! Cover Crazy is a meme that was started by The Book Worms.

This week I'm featuring

Snow Like Ashes
Ice Like Fire
 by Sara Raasch


This series is a new favorite of mine. The covers are interesting, but I think they make much more sense after having read book 1. There is a ton of symbolism in the images. The cover of book 1 depicts winter and summer, of course, while the whole thing rests on a bed of what could either be snow or ashes. The cover of book 2 puts another season into play, and the background image, which appears to be volcanic, seems to allude to a coming war.

I have a pet peeve with series that come out with mismatching covers. I confess that one of the things that I like best about these is that they match beautifully. It makes me excited to see book 3, just to see how the cover will look next to these two.

Leave us a comment and share your thoughts on this set of covers.


  1. I love a good cover. I have been known to read a book based solely on the cover. These are beautiful.

    1. Me too, HeatherAnne. I think a great cover is the best advertising a book can have.
