Cover Crush (11): Siege and Storm

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 in love with the cover for Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo!

Darkness never dies. 
Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long. 
The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.
I absolutely love the design for the cover of Siege and Storm. The intricate detailing of the castle, the waves, and the sky are really cool, as is the detailing of the title with the dragon coming off of the S. I think it's also pretty cool how the center is all lit up with the red of the castle and the light gray clouds in comparison to the darker edges of the cover.  We also don't see many completely graphic designed covers so it's also really cool how the designers went this route.  I don't think that anything else could have captured the story any better.

What do you think of the cover?
