Cover Love Week: Day 1 - Song of the Nile by Stephanie Dray

So, I've decided to dedicate this week to covers of upcoming books that I am loving, which I haven't yet featured on the blog because who doesn't love gorgeous covers?

Today's Pick:
Song of the Nile

Release Date: October 4, 2011

Why I love it

I love this cover because it is so powerful. I get this feeling of power crackling through the air whenever I see it. It definitely makes a statement, and I'm really looking forward to reading this book ^.^

Summary (from Goodreads)

Sorceress. Seductress. Schemer. Cleopatra’s daughter has become the emperor’s most unlikely apprentice and the one woman who can destroy his empire…

Having survived her perilous childhood as a royal captive of Rome, Selene pledged her loyalty to Augustus and swore she would become his very own Cleopatra. Now the young queen faces an uncertain destiny in a foreign land.

Forced to marry a man of the emperor’s choosing, Selene will not allow her new husband to rule in her name. She quickly establishes herself as a capable leader in her own right and as a religious icon. Beginning the hard work of building a new nation, she wins the love of her new subjects and makes herself vital to Rome by bringing forth bountiful harvests.

But it’s the magic of Isis flowing through her veins that makes her indispensable to the emperor. Against a backdrop of imperial politics and religious persecution, Cleopatra’s daughter beguiles her way to the very precipice of power. She has never forgotten her birthright, but will the price of her mother’s throne be more than she’s willing to pay?

I have to say this is one powerful cover! I love the items in it with her. I think the background and accessories help make a cover just as much as the main subject. Wonderful pick here!


I really like the lighting on this cover. It really looks tempestuous.


It is beautiful. The story sounds very powerful too.


It's currently being given away on Goodreads. Open to several countries.
