As much as I like Caitlin Kittredge's books and plan to read this one as soon as I have some (hah) spare time, the figure on the cover of the book has a definite "heard about human beings second hand" sort of feel to it. cover is a link if you want to look at it in more detail.
(if you like jim butcher, you'll also like kittredge to about the same amount. good writing/plotting/etc... that doesn't drift too far into the "I'M HUNTING VAMPIRES WITHOUT ANY PANTS ON" thing that seems to be so popular currently.)
