Cover Crush (8): The Chaos of Stars

Cover Crush is a feature here at Booklopedia that features covers that I currently have a crush on. I know that there are multiple features out in the blogging world that feature covers, but I thought that it would be nice for Booklopedia to feature something, especially something that I absolutely love about covers, even though they always say, "You should never judge a book by its cover."

Today, I'm absolutely infatuated with the cover The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White!

The Chaos of Stars

Isadora’s family is seriously screwed up. 

Of course, as the human daughter of Egyptian gods, that pretty much comes with the territory. She’s also stuck with parents who barely notice her, and a house full of relatives who can’t be bothered to remember her name. After all, they are going to be around forever—and she’s a mere mortal. 

Isadora’s sick of living a life where she’s only worthy of a passing glance, and when she has the chance to move to San Diego with her brother, she jumps on it. But Isadora’s quickly finding that a “normal” life comes with plenty of its own epic complications—and that there’s no such thing as a clean break when it comes to family. Much as she wants to leave her past behind, she can’t shake the ominous dreams that foretell destruction for her entire family. When it turns out there may be truth in her nightmares, Isadora has to decide whether she can abandon her divine heritage after all. 
The thing that really caught my eye was the intricate gold detail on this cover.  It definitely has that sort of Egyptian feel.  The galaxy background really contrasts with the gold details on the cover to make them stand out to anyone who sees it.  The little tendrils coming off of the letters in the title and author's name add a cool touch to the cover as well.  The one thing about this cover though is that I find it rather similar to the cover for For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund.  Nevertheless, the cover is really beautiful, especially with all the gold detailing.

What do you think about this cover?
