Smokeless Fire
For the last two years Ari Johnson's life has been anything but normal, and on her 18th birthday, when her friends surprise her with a gimmick genie claiming to grant wishes, Ari discovers the truth. The tragic and strange occurrences surrounding her 16th birthday were not coincidental and her life is never going to be the same again.  Ari's real parents are not normal. They are not loving. They are not human.  They are myth.  They are Smokeless Fire.  They are Jinn. 


Cover Artist: Claudia McKinney
Facebook/Work
Claudia has designed book covers for many publishers including Random House, Llewellyn, Simon & Schuster.  Right now she is working on designing a website for a best seller romance author.  I've taken a look at some of her work and it is fantastic.  It's the kind of art that gives you goose bumps.  I chose this book cover because I loved the colors. The green at the top kind of looks like smoke which makes you wonder why it's called Smokeless Fire then.  I love the flames at the bottom too.  It also makes you wonder why the girl doesn't look scared even though she is engulfed in flames.


What do you think of Claudia's cover?  Leave a link to your Shelf Candy post and I will check it out.
