Friday Face Off: Touch of Power

Earlier this month, the blog The Secret Writer revealed the US and UK covers for Maria V Snyder's upcoming novel, Touch of Power.  As a big fan of Maria, I am super geeked about this, whatever cover it has, but I have to say, I am quite taken with both.  The UK cover is in-line with the covers for the rest of her UK editions (and I love those editions!), and the US cover is in the same vein as her other US editions, but with a little more oomph!  What do you guys think?  I know I'm not the only one who's geeked for this, but even if you've never read her, do either of these make you want to pick this book up?  Which would you reach for?
Which one did it better?

Last Week on FFO: Three different versions of The Sky is Everywhere faced off, and nearly everyone seemed to prefer the springy green vines of the US paperback release.

  1. I like the one on the right better, because the one on the left is strangely drawn... I feel like it's a cartoon that wasn't quite finished, wasn't quite accurate. Her face looks weird.

    And, I like the lightning hand thing :P

  2. I've never read her (though I want to) but I love the cover on the right! It's so dark and she looks so powerful and fierce! All "talk to the hand and get out' my business" LOL

  3. The one on the left is beautiful!

  4. Hands down the ultra cool and mysterious blue one.

  5. Definitely the more purple one... SO BEAUTIFUL!

  6. Blue one for me. It looks more mysterious with the dark colors and the lightning. The other one looks to cheesy for me.

  7. I like them both but I think the UK one is cooler and fits better with what I think of Maria V. Snyder's books. I can't wait to read this!!!

  8. The first one is my choice. It's pretty and I like pretty.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
