Who is Saint Giovanni?

A while ago I signed up to host a button for the epic blogging event; "Who is Saint Giovanni?". This event is hosted by Rane of The Lit Express, which is too cool for words. You might be wondering, "What is this all about?"... Beginning April 11th, 2011 Rane will be posting weekly installments of her novel "Who is Saint Giovanni?"on her blog. After a year, the whole book will be available online and a fabulous artist will be illustrating a new scene from the book for every single post! Each installment will also be available in podcast and Vlog format. Today the cover was finally revealed, and I must say; it is beautiful! Plus, we got the book summary too;

After going her whole life without making a single enemy, someone wants Emily Edwards dead. And it's all Giovanni's fault. How does she know? Terrifying things happen whenever he's around. Since meeting him on her first day in Italy, Emily swears he follows her everywhere. First at the opera, then at her new high school in Florence. The morning after Giovanni rescues her from muggers, Emily wakes with an X that looks like it has been carved between her eyes. No one else can see the mark besides Giovanni. Since then, her senses are sharper, as though she had been living her life until that moment a little deaf, a little blind, and with no taste buds. Emily needs answers, but Giovanni won't give anything away. He says he's protecting her, but how can she believe him? So she risks her life by confronting the very man Giovanni has warned her about. Although some call Giovanni a saint, others call him a devil. Emily discovers she's only a pawn in a dangerous game that has existed for centuries. Her only chance of surviving it is to find the answer to a single question. Who is Saint Giovanni?
