Cover Reveal: Shadow Embraced by Cheree Smith

Check out the gorgeous cover for Cheree Smith’s upcoming release. Shadow Embraced is the first in the Haven series. Silvia from Dark World Books designed it, and I love it. The red just pops. Scar’s fashion style is very cool, and I want that necklace!


No escape.

Those words haunt Scar’s dreams. She thinks the creature that terrorises her while asleep isn’t real, but when she’s abducted and taken to a reform school meant to contain creatures too dangerous to function in society, she starts to wonder whether she isn’t some monster.

She turns to an underground fight club full of vampires, werewolves and witches established by the students to control her urges, and who is she kidding, she loves to fight.

When fighters begin to disappear, turning Scar into the prime suspect, she must race to prove her innocence before her true nature is exposed.

The only problem is that she’s not entirely sure she’s innocent.

  1. Cheree Smith says:

    Thanks for the comments on the cover and for helping with the reveal today 😀

  2. Just that little bit of blood is creepy and her super sweet face makes it all the more awful. Lovely cover and I’m with you on the necklace ~ I want it! I also love how the eyes are totally hidden. There’s a mystery there and I want to know it. Good luck on the release. Sounds like a great story.

    • Emma says:

      Yes, is it her blood or someone else’s? The necklace looks like it could be magical. I’ll have to try the vintage shops in town, see if I can find one like it.
