To survive in a ruined world, she must embrace the darkness
Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a walled-in city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten. Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them—the vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself dies and becomes one of the monsters.
Forced to flee her city, Allie must pass for human as she joins a ragged group of pilgrims seeking a legend—a place that might have a cure for the disease that killed off most of civilization and created the rabids, the bloodthirsty creatures who threaten human and vampire alike. And soon Allie will have to decide what and who is worth dying for again. (goodreads.com)
I don't really know what it was about this cover that originally caught my attention but I know for a fact that I adore it. I love how dark it is, thanks to being like 90% black, since I'm quite sure that it perfectly mirrors how dark the story itself is. Yes, I admit I've not read this one yet even though it stands on my shelf at home, shame on me, I know.
Furthermore I really like the golden eclipse like splash with the title inside of it. The font fits really well and was probably one of the reasons why the cover caught my eye. I know that this one originally had a different cover, which was awful, so I'm happy they changed it. The covers for book two and three are also really pretty so I cannot wait to get into this trilogy so that the entire thing can take it's place on my shelf.
