FRIDAY FACE-OFF: THRONES

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: “I sit here looking out at all I own”- a cover featuring a ‘throne’.  This made me look back into the past for a pick I am hoping no one else thougth of.


COVER A

COVER B

DIAMOND THRONE 2

COVER C

DIAMOND THRONE 3

COVER D

DIAMOND THRONE 4

COVER E

DIAMOND THRONE 5

COVER F

DIAMOND THRONE 6

AND THE WINNER IS . . .

This was a tough pick for me.  Long years ago, I enjoyed David Eddings, read all his novels, and loved Cover B.  After looking at lots of covers for this post though, I find myself drawn to Cover A; the fantastical nature of the illustration drawing me in.

Which would you choose?  Why?

And, why not join in next week with your own selections.

  1. I like C best, but that may be because it’s the one sitting on my bookshelf!

  2. Surprisingly, I haven’t yet read this one but when I was a teen I scarfed up David Eddings like no tomorrow. He is one of my childhood favorites. I found them after first finding Lord of the Rings. But anyway, the cover I like is cover B…if only because that’s the one I’m most familiar with, though I like all of them.

  3. Ooh, these are cool! I know most bloggers chose Mark Lawrences’ series, but you found some fantastic covers.

  4. I also prefer cover A, although I think cover F does the best job of conveying the queen sealed within the throne, if that’s what’s going on.
