FRIDAY FACE-OFF:

friday-face-off

Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a new weekly meme hosted by Books by Proxy. Join us every Friday as we pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in our literary universe.

This week’s theme is: “The blood is life… and it shall be mine!”- a cover which features ‘blood’.  And since everyone else took my intial fantasy pick, I’ve fallen back on a book which I personally have never read (Won’t ever read.  It isn’t my kind of thing.), but I clearly recall the first time I saw it at my local bookstore.  It definitely made me look twice.


COVER A

DEAD UNTIL DARK 1

COVER B 

DEAD UNTIL DARK 2

COVER C

DEAD UNTIL DARK 3

COVER D

DEAD UNTIL DARK 4

COVER E

DEAD UNTIL DARK 5

COVER F

DEAD UNTIL DARK 6

COVER G

DEAD UNTIL DARK 7

AND THE WINNER IS . . .

Well, it is Cover A for me.  I mean, all of these get the creepy yet seductive  vampire feeling going, but Cover A draws your eye with the red lips, tongue, vampire fangs and blood.

DEAD UNTIL DARK 1

Which would you choose?  Why?

And, why not join in next week with your own selections.  The theme for 26th August: “I sit here looking out at all I own” – A cover featuring a throne.

    I agree, Cover A checks all the right boxes from the tasteful gore (blood) to the sexual tension (female licking her lips). I’d buy it just for the cover. 😉

    A is definitely the most eye catching and appealing cover!

  3. Great choice. Actually, when I saw that this week’s theme was blood, my mind immediately flashed to that True Blood cover for Dead Until Dark, so great minds!

  4. I would choose cover A too – very striking. I read a couple of these books but I didn’t finish the series.

      Other than seeing the some of the covers at the bookstore, I’m not very familiar with the series. After all the Twilight saturation years ago I’ve tended to hate anything with vampires in it, so I never felt the need to watch the show or read the books.

    Haha – I ended up going with Dracula, I first though of Rivers of London and then this one – and I would have chosen exactly the same cover.
    Love it.
