Expectations vs. Reality: The Thirteenth Sign

Expectations vs. Reality is a new feature here inspired by Small Review that will compare my expectations from a book cover before seeing the summary with the summary itself.


At first glance, I love the intricacy of the cover with all the creepy-awesome drawings that give it a sort of dark fairy tale vibe. The title and font definitely screams "magic" and "adventure", so I'd suppose this is a dark fairy tale retelling, or maybe a story that combines several fairy tales together.


From Goodreads:
What if there was a 13th zodiac sign?

You’re no longer Sagittarius, but Ophiuchus, the healer, the 13th sign.

Your personality has changed. So has your mom’s and your best friend’s.

What about the rest of the world?

What if you were the one who accidentally unlocked the 13th sign, causing this world-altering change—and infuriating the other 12 signs? 

Jalen did it, and now she must use every ounce of her strength and cunning to send the signs back where they belong. Lives, including her own, depend on it.
I suppose I was somewhat close, since zodiac signs aren't too far away from fairy tales, though I maintain that this cover has more of a fairy tale feel than a Zodiac vibe. Still, the summary sounds awesome and I'm excited to read this book!

What were your first thoughts about this cover? How do they compare to reality?
