Cover LOVE?

I spotted the covers for Elevensie Kevin Hearne's The Iron Druid Series. These books will be released in QUICK succession. By quick I mean book one: (Hounded) April 19, 2011, book two: (Hexed) May 24, 2011, and book three: (Hammered) on June 28, 2011.  No years of agonizing over this one.

Atticus O'Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old--when in actuality, he's twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer.

Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he's hounded Atticus for centuries. Now the determined deity has tracked him down, and Atticus will need all his power--plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a sexy bartender possessed by a Hindu witch, and some good old-fashioned luck of the Irish--to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil.(goodreads)

For more information about this series, including preorder links, visit the official website of Kevin Hearne. Don't forget to add them to your goodreads lists!

There is now a free short story featuring Atticus and Oberon under the Goodies page on Kevin's website.

I like the covers, they remind me of Cassandra Clare covers. 
What do you think?  Are you in Cover LOVE?

I am definitely in Cover Love especially since on the cover of Hounded the guy looks a lot like Hugh Dancy xD. And since I love Ireland and Celtic and druid and all that goodness I just have to check out this series ^_^.
