I'm sure some of you have seen this already, but for those of you who haven't, the Nightshade series is being repackaged for book 2 -- in fact, it won't even be called the "Nightshade" series anymore! It will now be called the "Witches War" series. The new design is sleeker and more modern, but for me, it lacks some of the magic and beauty of the original covers. The new style seems maybe a little "mass market" to me, though I'd guess they're going for edgy and bold.
What do you guys think of the revamp? Do you like the new covers, or are you a die-hard fan of the old? Which do you think suits Calla's story better? Which makes you want to pick them up? In short,
Which does it better?
Last Week on FFO: Between the Sea and Sky went fin to fin with Lost Voices in a prettybluemermaidy cover-off. And they may continue going fin-to-fin forever -- it was a pretty dead split. Some of you liked being able to see mermaid fins, and some of you liked the air of mystery that BtSaS had. Personally, I think the watery + airy quality of Between the Sea and Sky captures what the book is supposed to be about, which gives it the slight leg up it needs to win in my opinion.
