Drip Drop Teardrop (Drip Drop Teardrop #1)
by Samantha Young

Avery hasn’t had it easy.

When she was ten years old her parents died in a car crash. Now nine years later her Aunt Caroline is the only family member she has left. And Caroline is dying.

So when Death comes knocking (quite literally) in the form of the damaged and dangerous, Brennus, Avery makes a deal with the reaper in order to save Caroline.

Brennus is an Ankou.

One of the many, once mortal men and women, who were given the choice to become an immortal in exchange for ferrying the dead over into their afterlife.

Nine years ago Brennus took Avery’s parents and tried to take Avery, but she fought him and won. Amazed by her strength Brennus followed Avery and has watched over her.

Now he knows Avery is the one to offer him freedom from his obligation to the dead.

And he’ll stop at nothing to have her.

Before I get into what I think about this cover I have to recommend for everyone to go and check out the covers for all of Samantha Young's books. I don't know how she managed it but they're all gorgeous! Once Upon a Twilight blog has a great post that includes an interview of Samantha as well as images of all of her covers. That post is actually how I found out about Drip Drop Teardrop.

The cover of Drip Drop Teardrop is fairly simple but it still draws you in. I love the details around her eyes...the unusual eyeborws, the eye makeup, and of course the odd tears. I also like the title font.


  1. Thanks for the link. You're right. Her covers are gorgeous. Her novellas sound really interesting too.

  2. I have to say I agree, her covers are all gorgeous! I confess I am a cover junkie ;-)

  3. Hi, Jen!

    This is a very striking cover! It captures your attention right away. The weird tear drops, the heavy eye makeup, and the very simple background that serves to emphasize the model's face...all these things contribute to make up a visually stunning image! Nice pick!! Thanks for sharing this!! : )


I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
