Brew (Salem’s Revenge #1)
by David Estes
Salem’s Revenge strikes without warning or mercy, ravaging the powerless human race under the forces of united gangs of witches, wizards, and warlocks. During the slaughter, Rhett Carter’s foster parents and sister are killed, and his best friend and girlfriend are abducted by a gang of witches calling themselves the Necromancers, who deal in the dark magic of raising the dead. Rhett’s sword-wielding neighbor with a mysterious past saves Rhett from becoming another casualty of the massacre and teaches him the skills he needs to survive in this new world.
Rhett is broken, his normal high school life of book blogging and football playing shoved in a witch-apocalyptic blender. The only thing he has left is his burning desire for revenge. Armed with his new witch hunting skills and a loyal, magic powered dog named Hex, he sets out into the unknown with one mission: hunt and destroy those who took away everyone he ever loved.
But Rhett isn’t just a witch hunter; he has secrets of his own that he has yet to discover, secrets that his enemies will stop at nothing to keep him from.
And discovering the truth about himself is the human race’s only hope.

My Cover Review:
I like this cover, veryy different from what you normally see. It does give a bit of a dark and depressing feel which I think would fit as this is an post-apocalyptic/ dystopia book. The sunflower in the middle seems to give soem hope and I like how the title is Brew and on the cover there a pot which something brewing inside. It fits the feel of the book I got from reading the blurb. I like the colourfull smoke swirling from ht epot and how that speck of colour in the middle seems to draw al your attention there.
To conclude: an original and pretty cover. It gives us the right feel for the genre and I like how the sunflower and colours in the middle pull your attention there.
