Friday Face Off: Immortal Beloved series

I'm pretty sure I've talked before about how Cate Tiernan's Immortal Beloved series underwent an overhaul between the first and second books (going from this to what you see below); and I know in my rare gushing review* for the first book, also titled Immortal Beloved, I showed some of the other covers from around the world, including the UK edition, which is also below. But it wasn't until I finished the 3rd book a couple of days ago that I actually went through and really looked at the different editions and realized that they needed to be a Face Off.
Personally, I was a little unsure of the US redesigns (below) when they were revealed, and was quite taken with the UK editions. But now it looks as if the UK has had a last minute redesign of its own (which is bizarre, if you ask me - why not finish out the series, it's the last book, why would you keep them from matching?!), and the set together is a little jarring.  So that may throw some of you off in voting this week, but feel free to tell us which design you like best, whether US, original UK or new UK.  By now you know the drill, so
Which one did it better?

*The second book, Darkness Falls, also got a glowing review. The third will, too.

new US editions
original UK editions + new style?

Last Week on FFO: The hardcover and paperback editions of Katherine Longshore's Gilt went head to head, with the steamy revamped paperback just barely snagging a win.
Winner ------->


  1. Definitely the new US versions. Cool and edgy.

  2. I like the UK versions with the flowerededges

  3. I love those original UK editions! They're so gorgeous, and I hate how they were changed for the third book (which is a weird change anyway, because that new cover looks so generic). I do like the North American covers too, though -- I think they're pretty unique, and I like the use of colour.

  4. I usually love the US covers but not this time. The UK covers are great. The vine and floral designs framing the first two are gorgeous. Not so excited for the third one.

  5. Its got to be the lovely atmospheric UK covers for me :)

  6. Ummmm, US, I guess, though I don't love any of them. The new US ones have the advantage of matching well and being, perhaps, the right sort of crazy.

    I like the original UK covers, but they look like ebook novella covers, if you know what I mean.

    The UK Eternally Yours is so unoriginal. Ugh.

  7. US version. though I don't love it, it's just better than the UK version.

  8. Though I really like the original UK covers, I have seen many books that look similar, where the US don't really look like any other books out there. I didn't like them at first, but they've grown on me and now are sort of iconic to the series, which is why I've got to go US on this one.


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