Cover Love- Scythe

These are my personal choices, books can be published traditionally or self-published- I'm only interested in the art choices. I would love to hear what you think of these covers, so please leave comments.

Today's pick...

Scythe by Neal Shusterman. Jacket illustration by Kevin Tong.

I did a double take when I walked by this one in the book store. It is so bold, it just called me to step back. The red and pale yellow background against the grim reaper wearing the same blood red is breathtaking. The scythe is artistic, not the typical blade of death. And there is a little trompe d'oeil technique with the face and scythe pole. I couldn't resist.
