That is soooo cool! I think it's my favorite of all three. My sister, who has read DioM, saw this and she loves it, too. :oD

Austin said...

It's GREAT! Awesome job, I love it!

Jordan said...

Looks great!

I haven't read Eternity's Edge yet, though, so if this cover is referencing anything left off from there, I'm not getting it...

Anyway, I like it. Can't wait to read it and Eternity's Edge.

THAT IS SO AWESOME!!! I can't wait! I think that is the best cover so far. (But I still really like the second book cover...)

I'm not really anonymous, but my browser at school won't let me put my usual Blogger ID. Hmmm...

Nonetheless, very cool cover, Bryan. I like it the best of the three. The spooky candle is really eye-catching. I absolutely LOVE the upside down cemetery at the bottom.

Two thoughts, if there's still time to alter the design:

1. The face behind the candle seems to have an understated smile. That feels wrong considering the overall creepy imagery. Maybe more of a grim expression would work better.

2. The title seems too small and understated. And maybe they could treat the title lettering with foil or something that makes them stand out better. Your books are too good to have them missed because the cover is too muted.

Never alone.

I like it. I'm not sure the content of the book, but the image matches the title without being grotesque or evil looking. I appreciate that you can get the message across without it being scary or creepy. The title is startling enough. The image has a nice subtleness to it.

Very good! I'm also excited to see the release date, which I have been looking forward to

I think it is my favorite cover of all three of the books! Really neat.
I agree with what Mr. Batson said too...

Paris said...

I love the candle and the way the hand is cupped around it. Is that graves near the bottom?

Magma said...

AWESOME! probably my fav of the three covers
I can just hardly wait to read NE!

I'm sure it would make more sense had I read the second one...man I need to get that soon.
I had a dream about the third book (but it had dragons so that's probably not right huh?)

Its so grim and even somewhat macabre. The image's beauty sends chills down my spine and even puts me a bit on edge for I'm worried how everything will work out in the end for all the characters who've become my best friends through the trivialities of college life. For some reason... I'm gathering from the image of the cementary that a motive of the enemy will be to present death as the final resting place for we inherently have no souls. I can see this story already have some really deep spiritual depth and since you are so adept at handling such deep topics with a precarious approach, I feel that the beacon of light will be so overwhelmingly bright that it easily will vanquish the abysmal darkness in the end. What am I writing? I've become so poetic lately; must be the extraneous amounts of Shakespeare and Jane Austen I've read lately.

really cool! I think this is my favorite cover out of the three books. The rain drops with the candle look awesome!

Phoenix said...

Although I have not read either of the first two books, I really like this cover. I think it is more intriguing than the previous ones. It makes me wonder, "What happens in that book?" I dont have to understand the image to get excited about reading the book (and the series):{) Hopefully I will have some time to read it when it comes out.

Caleb said...

Great cover! I can't wait to read!!

Pais Charos said...

Love it, can't wait to read it!

Galadriel said...

I think your name should be in a brighter yellow. Since it was in red and blue so far, yellow is the obvious choice. But I love the cover. It's perfectly creepy and thrillingly-attention-getting!

Jessica said...

This comes at the perfect time, as I am doing a book talk on the first book, and was going to bring the second book in as well, for show.
I will just print this off (is that ok?) and use it as another prop.
This is probably my favourite of the three!

Bryan Davis said...

Jessica, sure you can print it out and use it. That would be fine.

Katie G. said...

THAT IS SO COOL! I really like it!

I have a bad habit of screaming whenever I see the cover of one of your books for the first time. (Sorry, Mother :D) Aaanyway, I think this is my favorite cover of the Echoes series! I think the rain spattered is a creepy background. I love it! I agree with Gal that your name should be a brighter yellow. I didn't even notice the color when I first looked at it.

Marvelous! I just can't wait to get my poor hands on it!

So I just finished Eternity's Edge! FINALLY! Lol! I'd been waiting for a day that I could devote to reading it- and today was the day! :P
I absolutely adored it! It almost made me cry at some parts, and made me laugh at others (which seems to tickle my brother... he doesn't understand how I laugh while reading... :/)
Anyways, I love this cover. It looks awesome and makes me even more excited for the release of the final book in the trilogy!
