I'm sure you guys may have noticed that Maureen Johnson's Shades of London series (ie The Name of the Star, etc), have been revamped. The second book, The Madness Underneath, is about to be released, and gone is the lurking Jack the Ripper, Victorian ghost story-ish feel. There is still some misty* ghostiness, but otherwise, the covers have very little in common. Of course, we all hate when a series changes covers midstream (now they'll never match, dammit!), but all the same - anyone a fan of the new versions? Check both out below and let me know in the comments what you think. Which one would catch your eye?
Which one did it better?
Last Week on FFO: The Us and UK versions of Leila Rasheed's Cinders & Sapphires (or Secrets & Sapphires, depending) went head to head, whisper to whisper, in what was a much closer match than I'd anticipated. But in the end, Cinders conveyed the time period better, and pulled off the win.
