This week’s theme is: Book I am thankful I read! It is Thanksgiving Day here in the USA, so it seems like a good day to reflect back on this topic.
I had a tough time narrowing this down to just one book. I’ve been so very fortunate to find myself introduced to many amazing authors and stories since I began blogging a few years ago. But, after a lot of reflection, my pick finally became fairly self-evident: Traitor’s Blade.
The US cover for this amazing book. A very fitting representation of the Three Musketeers-esque feeling of the narrative.
I really love both these covers. If I have to pick my absolute favorite it would be the lone figure on the right, heading toward his fate with both his rapiers drawn. The image just captures the essence of Falcio val Mond, whom I absolutely adore reading about.
LEAST FAVORITE COVERS
Too plain and generic for my tastes. I suppose the one on the right is going for the Joe Abercrombie First Law look, but it does not excite me in the least. Others may certainly disagree, and if the covers get them to buy the book and discover this amazing series, then I too love these covers for that single reason.
So what do you think? Agree or disagree? And to everyone who is celebrating the US holiday: Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
