Because it's impossible (apparently) to finish a series out on one unified cover theme, this week's Face Off features Elizabeth Miles' Fury trilogy, which got a mid-stream cover switch. The original covers: wild, evocative and memorable, IMO. The new covers: a bland Stepford Wives-meets-Lauren Oliver's Delirium cover-redos mash-up.
Not that I'm trying to bias you or anything.
But the publishers must like the new covers more, or they must be selling better, because the third book doesn't even have another option. Both versions have pretty fonts, though...
So, which would you reach for? Would you pick either of these up to see what they were about, based on cover appeal?
Which one did it better?
Last Week on FFO: The original US cover of Rachel Hartman's (epic, amazing) Seraphina went up against the colorful, updated (snazzy new award-medaled) version, and though some loved the purple pop, and everybody agreed that the font on the updated version is just fantastic, the old version won out in the end.
Winner -------> (but you really can't go wrong either way...)
