Her dress looks better in red.

We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I've seen that on a few other covers, but haven't hunted them down yet. I'm working at work today :o

There's two on the list of HF giveaways on Goodreads- 'Push not the River', and something about Warsaw. I have no pictures though.

I think this is also she, we can't see much of the gold dress but the general look and eyebrows are the same.

Agreed. The fit on that golden dress is appalling - so much bunching and wrinkling.

Elizabeth, I think your cover does that image best, and I don't mean that as a kiss-up; the balance and muting just work on your cover.

As to the purple on the last page - it's not only the color that looks photoshopped, but the dress itself almost looks pasted on. The sharp delineation between the garment and the skin looks "too" sharp. Though that could be the result of photoshopping the color too garishly, it makes it look like the image was one of a naked girl onto which this tatty dress was dropped. Ish.

It's a mirror image I reckon.
