The cover for Myra McEntire's Timepiece, the second in the Hourglass books, was released recently, and I thought it made for good Face-Off material. I loved the sort of quiet, eerie hauntedness of Hourglass - the uncomfortable oddness and disconnect with reality. It really drew me in, and was a favorite cover of this year. Timepiece takes a similar approach but tries to amp it up a bit, and I'm curious what all of you think of it. To me, it looks a little Peter Pan, and the way the shadows fall, it looks like her hair is disembodied, like she doesn't really have a head under all that... Unsettling, but in a different way from Hourglass... But what do you think? Was it successful? Does it draw you in?
Which one did it better?
Last Week on FFO: The reds and grays of Dark Angel faced off against the similar palate of Everneath, with Everneath pulling out a nearly-unanimous win.
