I recently finished the third book in Jackson Pearce's Fairytale Retelling series, Fathomless, and when I got to the endflap, I noticed the new covers for the entire series. I knew, of course, that the covers had changed because I was waiting (and waiting) for the Fathomless cover to be revealed so I could share it during Fairy Tale Fortnight (we ended up just making our own...). When it finally was revealed, we all talked about how, even though the new cover is nice, we were disappointed that they hadn't kept the series going with the iconic silhouette covers (they could have saved the new covers for reissues, right?), but my thoughts didn't go much further than this. Strange, really, because I normally immediately look around to see what else they've done to the series (ie. how much of it do I hate?)
Long story short, seeing the whole series together made me realize I hadn't done a Face Off with them, so:
Which one did it better?
I'm not going to lie, I do like both quite a bit. But I will ALWAYS like being able to finish out a series in the same style - now my books will NEVER match, and that makes me sadpanda. =/
Last Week on FFO: The US and UK versions of Tonya Hurley's The Blessed went (creepy) head to (back of) head in a very polarizing Face Off - so polarizing, in fact, that the results were a dead tie.
