Cover to Covet (9)

LOVE book covers. Love, love love them. So I decided to make it a regular post - each post featuring a cover I love.



Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough   [Goodreads][Amazon]

I love how atmospheric this one looks. I've heard such great things about this book and I think the cover is really eye catching.  There is something creepy, yet beautiful about it. 

Here's the synopsis:

From Goodreads: A chilling, beautiful debut novel inspired by a haunting folk song about murder, witchcraft and revenge. Beware of Long Lankin, that lives in the moss ...When Cora and her little sister Mimi are sent to stay with their elderly aunt in the isolated village of Bryers Guerdon, they receive a less than warm welcome, and are desperate to go back to London. But Auntie Ida's life was devastated the last time two young girls were at Guerdon Hall, and now her nieces' arrival has reawoken an evil that has lain waiting for years. A haunting voice in an empty room ...A strange, scarred man lurking in the graveyard ...A mysterious warning, scrawled on the walls of the abandoned church ...Along with Roger and Peter, two young village boys, Cora must uncover the horrifying truth that has held Bryers Guerdon in its dark grip for centuries - before it is too late for Mimi. Intensely atmospheric and truly compelling, this is a stunning debut.

Long Lankin is published April 2011

Ooh, really want to read this! And the cover does look amazing: creepy, mysterious...
What I want to know: what are those little red things hanging in the tree? They look like shoes... but I'm not sure...
Anyway, brilliant cover, and I am now officially waiting for this book.
And thanks for commenting: The Liar Society does look amazing, doesn't it? (:
