Cover VS Cover:

US // UK

This is on my reading pile and I can't wait to get to it, and today the US cover art is going to battle it out with the UK cover!

I might be biased considering I own the UK edition, but the British cover art is beautiful. The image is just so cool and powerful. It has a matte finish while the black is glossy. Everything about it is just brilliant!

As for the US cover, it's nice but there's something un-definable that I don't like about it. I've seen a few other people say that it reminds them of Christopher Paolini's Inheritance cycle books. So perhaps it's that. It just doesn't look as nice or enticing as the UK cover. 

This week, it just has to be the UK. I'm sorry, but in my opinion there is no competition!

So which do you guys prefer?

  1. Yep, definitely UK. I think the US cover is a little too 'cartoony' for me. If that had been on the shelf in the shop I probably wouldn't have even looked twice at it.

  2. I love his books! And I really love the UK cover, the US one is really dull and boring.
