Keen Cover Friday ~ Killer Instinct by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Hosted by: Keepbooked

It's Keen Cover Friday and this week's must-see book cover belongs to Jennifer Lynn Barnes' Killer Instinct.

Killer Instinct is book #2 in The Naturals series and is to be released on November 4th 2014. 

Without further ado, here is the amazing cover:

Seeing that book #1 The Naturals' cover alluded to events within the book, it is safe to say that Killer Instinct's cover probably does the same. 

Let's take a second to analyse the cover.

The card featured on the cover is a king of spades. Besides kings being symbolic of power, command and authority, the king of spades card in karma readings often symbolises the seeking of truth or willpower. 

In the middle of the card is a shooting range target - a humanoid one. The top right corner also features a bloody fingerprint. 

Combining all of these elements, we can hazard a guess that this next book will involve not only a mystery killer who perhaps plays with the people seeking him, but the card may actually feature in the book itself as a clue that will lead the team to the killer.

Either way, there is a lot you can take from this brilliantly-made book cover!

What are your thoughts on the cover's symbolism? Are you excited for Killer Instinct? Let me know in the comment's section below!


'Seventeen-year-old Cassie Hobbes has a gift for profiling people. Her talent has landed her a spot in an elite FBI program for teens with innate crime-solving abilities, and into some harrowing situations. After barely escaping a confrontation with an unbalanced killer obsessed with her mother’s murder, Cassie hopes she and the rest of the team can stick to solving cold cases from a distance.

But when victims of a brutal new serial killer start turning up, the Naturals are pulled into an active case that strikes too close to home: the killer is a perfect copycat of Dean’s incarcerated father—a man he’d do anything to forget. Forced deeper into a murderer’s psyche than ever before, will the Naturals be able to outsmart the enigmatic killer’s brutal mind games before this copycat twists them into his web for good?

With her trademark wit, brilliant plotting, and twists that no one will see coming, Jennifer Lynn Barnes will keep readers on the edge of their seats (and looking over their shoulders) as they race through the pages of this thrilling novel
