Covers: Does this cover art resemble anything you've seen before?

The cover art on The Legacy by Gemma Malley very much reminds me of the cover art on a immensely popular series by another author. I haven't been able to find information about the cover artist for this novel so it could very well be the same artist as for the series. I think the cover art on The Legacy is beautiful by the way, what do you think?

Can you guess which other covers it reminds me of without scrolling down to reveal my answer? When you have guessed do you agree with me?

The Legacy
will be released on September 6th, 2010 by Bloomsbury publishing. Here's the synopsis from Goodreads:

When a Pincent Pharma lorry is ambushed by the Underground, its contents come as a huge surprise - not drugs, but corpses in a horrible state. It appears Longevity isn't working and the drugs promising eternal youth are failing to live up to their promises. A virus is sweeping the country, killing in its wake, and Longevity is powerless to fight it. When Richard Pincent of Pincent Pharma suggest that the Underground has released the virus, something has to be done to put the story straight and once and for all alert everyone to the truth. 
Time to reveal the covers art I feel that cover artist of The Legacy might have taken some inspiration from: The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater, cover design on  Shiver US version by Christopher Stengel(does any one know if he designed all three covers below?):

Have a wonderful weekend!
