The covers for the second book in the Lotus War series, Kinslayer, were released this week (along with many a giveaway), and since we had a pretty lively discussion about the different versions of Stormdancer, I figured we should probably continue the tradition with Kinslayer.
Below are the US and UK/AUS versions of the book. They follow in the footsteps of their predecessors, with a strong, bold, fierce Jason Chan-designed piece of art on the US, and a more cool, calculating, muted design on the UK/AUS version. As before, there are elements I really like in both, so I'm curious to see which you guys would rush to pick up (if either). So tell us in the comments, which grabs your interest? Which would you want on your shelves?
Which one did it better?
Last Week(ish) on FFO: I once again forgot to post FFO last week (I was out of town much of the week, so my brain was gone), but the week before, we had a Face Off between the original and updated covers of Elizabeth Eulberg's Take a Bow; though we all sort of have the feeling that the updated cover is probably more true to the book (the original looks rather drama-y, and not so much rock star-y...), that didn't stop the majority of you from choosing the original. And I can't blame you - it's so pretty!
