Cover Reveal~ Gabriel and The Swallows

"A beautiful, lyrical novel of love." ~Benjaminoftomes

Hello Everyone! Today I am on of the lucky people who get to partake in Esther Dalseno's cover reveal for Gabriel and the Swallows, book 1 in the Volatile duology This cover reveal is hosted by Oftomes Publishing.

Without further ado here is the cover for Gabriel and the Swallows:

I have to mention that for the most part I have fallen in over with ALL of the Oftomes book covers, however I think this one tops the list. I like the aesthetics of it as well as the scheme behind various elements. Also just from reading the description, I believe this cover does a really good job of representing it. Oh! And my favourite part would have to be the way the face and parts of the background is intertwined with the silhouette of a Swallow.

~About the Book~
Title: Gabriel and the Swallows
Series: Volatile
Author: Esther Dalseno
Release Date: March 2016
Publisher: Oftomes Publishing
"A lonely farm boy.
A girl with swallow’s wings.
An ancient city buried in a volcano.
A mystery old as blood and bone.

There is more to Gabriel than the life he’s ashamed of – the son of peasant winemakers, bullied relentlessly on account of his disabled mother. For Gabriel has a secret: the elaborate dream world he descends into at night – a grandiose, vivid existence – is becoming more real than his waking life.

Everything changes for Gabriel when he rescues a wounded creature – a miraculous girl with swallow’s wings – from the voracious pursuit of Alfio Gallo, a dangerous old enemy. Aided by the beautiful and mysterious Orlando Khan, Gabriel is conflicted by unanswered questions: who is the Dark One that dwells in the medieval tunnels beneath their city? Is he just a figment of Gabriel’s powerful imagination? And is the foundling really who she says she is?

Wrestling with manhood whilst beckoned by ancient rites and foreign lands, Gabriel is about to make a deadly decision that changes the course of life as he knows it…as long as he can decide which reality he’s in."
