    “You’re not riding me dressed like that.” (Could apply to either character)

    Look here. She’s an elf. It’s an elf home. Maybe it’s HER elf home. In which case, if she wants to lounge around in the world’s most ridiculous tabard-and-belt combination, that’s her choice. I think she’s being quite polite by letting in the neighbour dragon to help him with the lock to his makeup box.

  3. Noel Says:

    Where is this elf home exactly? New York? Dubai?

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Who received fashion advice from whom?

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Noel: Pittsburgh. That’ll be £1.

    Once more Buffy fans are finding a lot to like about a book…

    I’m surprised the elf’s high-cut dress doesn’t reveal a tattoo of some sort. Perhaps one reading Coupon Inside?

  7. Bibliomancer Says:

    That must be EL PHOME, the legendary Spanish dragon.

    Elves got home furnishing catalogues?

  10. Elvraie Says:

    Is it a case of Elf Phone Home, cause she needs a new wardrobe? And using a jewel-box-looking communicator? Well, obviously, she could not get hold of a mobile phone, I suppose. The Dragon-saurus thingy looks a bit bored.

    Online dating for otherkin creates odd couple.

    When Juniper invited Draco over for ‘Yew Tube and Chill’, it was only natural that he misunderstood…

  13. Bibliomancer Says:

    And she is Elle Foamy, dragon El Phome’s elf homie.

    Am I seeing a more than passing resemblance to David Bowie during his Diamond Dogs phase?

    …with your silicone humps and your ten-inch stump…

    Having read this book, all I have to say about this cover is that the heroine wouldn’t be caught dead wearing something as ridiculously skimpy as that dress. And the dragons don’t actually look like that. The astonishing thing is that this cover actually does depict a scene from the book . . . sort of.

    And if you think this cover is bad (it’s the third book in the series), the cover for book four made me laugh hard.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Anna: pix plz kthx.

  19. Bibliomancer Says:

    Here is the fourth cover in the series. Even after all these books, Buffy fans apparently should still find a lot to like.

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @B’mancer, Anna: remarkable! It’s like someone was trying to explain Harry Potter slash fic using a Christmas cracker crown, a plate of calamari, and a dozen whippets.

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Except for the dog, everyone has a bad 70s hair cut. The dog, on the other hand, seems to be wearing a monkish skullcap. WTF.

  22. Ray P Says:

    In fairness a Cherub faces awful trouble finding a barber who can accommodate his wings.

  23. Anna T. Says:

    @B. Chiclitz: Incidentally, the dog is the only one present portrayed even slightly accurately. Those twin boys with bad eighties haircuts? Are actually girls. And the tengu boy looks absolutely horrible.

  24. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Anna T.—the dog is also the only character who looks even remotely intelligent.

  25. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Another cover in the old tradition of “Made You Look!”

  26. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Dragon: “Hey girlfriend, why do you keep wearing those ridiculous outfits? It’s cold in the city this time of year!”
    Elf: “It distracts people from ogling my giant ears. I’m very self-conscious about them.”

    @DSWBT: You fall asleep on the keyboard or what?

  29. Jon K. Says:

    Another ‘ellipses in the pull quote’ – a ripe target for improvisation!

    “Wit and intelligence are nowhere to be found in this book. Furious action isn’t either, unless you count a dragon watching an elf-woman magic open a lockbox as action. Buffy fans should find a lot to like if they look elsewhere on the bookshop shelves.

    A rare occurrence of the carpet being up top and the drapes down bottom. And they don’t match. In fact, they are on opposite sides of the color wheel.
