Welcome to the Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy. Join us every Friday as we pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in the literary universe.  If you want to join us next week, check out next week’s predetermined them, choose a book, compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog

This week’s theme is:

‘‘A Hand without a hand? A bad jape, sister.’ – a cover featuring a hand/hands

Talk about a difficult theme.  I searched and searched for hands everywhere stinking where.  I saw lots of them, but never just them alone.  Finally, I settled on a book cover with a strong focus on hands, which I also just happened to like.

Hope you enjoy!

Yeah, it is a tie this week.  Different types of covers which both caught my eye.  If I was forced to pick I would go with the cover on the right, because of the fire and the sense of barely contained violence about to erupt.  But, hey, I do really think the left cover is damn clever as well.  Hence the tie.

So, do you agree with my picks?  Disagree?  Love them all?  Hate them all?  Let us know!

  1. This was a tricky challenge, but I would pick the Mage De Guerre cover as well, for the same reasons. I do like a good mid-action cover.

    Bonus points for the word “hands” being in the tagline😊

  3. I agree with your top two but I like the one on the left just a tiny bit more! Great choice this week 🙂 And I agree with Tammy bonus points for “Hands” being written on the cover!

  4. I had no idea there were so many covers for Battlemage. I like both the top right and the bottom right.
