Cover VS Cover:

UK // US

Changeling by Steve Feasey was re-branded Wereling for the US, so for a starteRs I already prefer the UK edition because the title just fits so so well!

I read the book a few months ago on my Kindle, and have since purchased the second book, which I am currently waiting to get around to. A review is soon to follow, it's on the to do list! But in the meantime...

I think it's a given which one is the winner this time. The colouring. The overall image. The effects on the cover. The feeling it evokes. The UK just has to win. The US cover lacks something. It's dark and brooding, which fits the feel of the book, but it just doesn't give that urge to read which the UK one gave me!

So there we go, Steve should be very proud of his UK team for creating such beautiful work.

  1. I'd have to say that the US one appeals more to an older audience rather than the UK cover which seems to be aimed at the preteen and early teen market.

    I haven't read the book so I can't say which one is a more accurate reflection though...

  2. I was going to saying something similar to Rhys actually! I like the look of the US cover more and I find that rather surprising, as it's usually the other way around.

    I can't say that I know very much about the book but it sounds interesting!
