Today's Face Off is a little bit different in that it's not entirely a Face Off. I mean, you're still welcome to tell me in the comments which versions you'd prefer to have on your shelves, but today we're actually doing a bit of a Face Off / Cover Reveal combo in honor of the international release of Marianne de Pierres' Night Creatures series. It's not really fair to do a straight forward Face Off because, let's be honest, we've all coveted these gorgeous covers since the moment they were released. And we've all been waiting for the series to make its way out of Australia and into the wider world. And of course, we were hoping they'd make it to us with these covers intact, but alas, that was not to be. But Marianne is releasing the books internationally herself at the end of March, and has had new versions of the cover designed for us non-Aussie readers, and though it may be a bitter pill to swallow to know we can't have those gorgeous, buttery, glowing original covers, I will say from having read the first book, the dark, gothy redesigns actually do suit.
So, what do you guys think? Would you pick these up now that you'll soon be able to, and has your impression of the series changed with these new covers? And if you've read the series, what do you think?
Last Week on FFO: The new and original covers of Elizabeth Myles' Fury and Envy went head to head, and lets face it, the cover redesign never stood a chance.
