More proof that YA books get the best covers

I've said it before, and I'll say it again--YA cover designers create gorgeous works of art.  My favorite YA cover of the month is the one for Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel.  Not only are the images beautiful and intriguing, but the design--and the publication of the book in general--further fuels my hope that editors will be willing to look at more manuscripts set in the past.

The setting of Clockwork Angel, the first book in The Infernal Devices series, is a supernatural, steampunk version of 1878 London.  To further get a feel for Clare's world, head over to the very cool website for the series: I can't wait to pick up a copy of the book.

Keep buying supernatural historicals, editors!

You're right! Gorgeous cover!!! I saw this one at Costco yesterday, not grouped with YA but with all the NYT bestselllers. : )
