Page Turners: Arcadia Awakens

At the moment I am reading:
Arcadia Awakens by Kai Meyer
My copy doesn't have this cover because it's a proof copy sent to me by Templar to review for Most Reading YA. But I have to say that I think this cover is amazing. The UK hardback cover  is equally awesome. See below:

They're both so vivid and striking and very good at summing up the story in a clear image. They do exactly what a cover should do. I am tempted to also feature them as Coveted Covers, but I won't do that to you and will have to seek out something else. But if my book was published and this is the kind of cover they gave it, I would be thrilled!

Arcadia Awakens is out in the UK and US in February/March 2012

From Goodreads:

"To Rosa Alcantara, the exotic world of Sicily, with its network of Mafia families and its reputation for murder and intrigue, is just that—exotic and wholly unknown. But when her life in Brooklyn begins to fall apart, she must travel there, to her family’s ancestral home, where centuries of family secrets await her.
 Once there, Rosa falls head over heels for Alessandro Carnevare, the son of a Sicilian Mafia family, whose handsome looks and savage grace both fascinate and unsettle her. But their families are sworn enemies, and her aunt and sister believe Alessandro is only using Rosa to infiltrate the Alcantara clan. And when Rosa encounters a tiger one night—a tiger with very familiar eyes—she can no longer deny that neither the Carnevares nor the Alcantaras are what they seem.
 Hidden caves, dangerous beasts roaming the hills, and a history of familial bloodlust mean that Rosa can’t trust anyone. Torn between loyalty to her family and love for their mortal enemy, Rosa must make the hardest decision of her life: stay in Sicily with her new love…or run as far and as fast as she can."
