Dominick (A Prequel to Inferno)
by Kara Jemal
Genre: YA dystopian
Release Date: March 2015
Publisher: Glass House Press
Dominick Grant had the perfect life: parents who loved him, a beautiful girlfriend, and a best friend who always had his back. He knew who he was, and how he wanted to live his life.
But in Dominick’s world, that choice belongs to someone else — a totalitarian government that dictates the lives of its citizens, decreeing that Dominick must be separated from his girlfriend and forced to work for the very government he detests.
The question is…will Dominick accept his predetermined path, or risk making his own choices and bringing his world crumbling down around him?

My Cover Review:
It’s a nice cover, nothing too outstanding, but it does fit the feel of the blurb. I don’t think it’s a beautiful cover to look at, but I think it does fit the feel the book is going for. The cover gives that gritty dystopia feel with the abandoned buildings, which nicely fits the genre. Although the cover gives me a bit more of a war feel and less oppressive government that the blurb is aiming for.
The colours make me think of hell, fire and bad things happening. It’s a warm cover, but not in a pleasant way, more in a dangerous way. It looks like a place where not many survive and life is hard. I am not a fan of the font used for the title, although I do like the colours used for the text as it fits the colours on the cover, but due to the light colours in contrast to the dark background it’s still easy to read.
All in all it’s a decent cover. It fits the feel or the blurb and makes it obvious this is a dystopia. It makes me think of fire and danger.

I agree, the warmness of the cover really gives the image a really sinister feel. Aren’t totalitarian governments really sucky, anyway? 😉 But yeah, it’s not an outstanding cover… one look and you might say it’s a bit forgettable (as it looks generic as far as dystopia covers go), but at least it got the atmosphere right!

I agree it’s a bit generic as far as dystopia covers go, but it does get the atmosphere right at least. I am wonderign if the sinister feel is noticeable in the book itself as well.
