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:

“Raining Cats and Dogs – a cover featuring a stormy sky!

God, what is it with these difficult topics?

Really, stormy sky.  How many speculative fiction books have that as a cover?

Readers of fantasy like cool warriors posing in intimidating fashion with big swords or axes.  Scifi fans like covers with amazing alien visages or awe-inspiring planets with starships.  Stormy skies?  Not so much really.  At least, I can’t recall any right this second.

There are a lot of spec fiction novels with stormy skies, you say.  Huh, guess I need to take a look.  Let’s see if you are right.

First off, I actually like the angry face in the stormy sky.  It is unusual.  But the main reason I picked this cover and the book is because I really like this series by Marc Turner and always try to find a way to encourage others to give it a try!

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

  1. Have to agree with you. Something about that cover is chilling.

    I think these covers are all really good. But the angry face is attention grabbing for sure😊

  3. I don’t like the angry face in the sky haha. If it weren’t for that I would agree with your pick (tho it sounds like you might not have picked it if it wasn’t there?) I like the second to last one best. The one with the guy on the horse that is silhouetted.

  4. Reblogged this on Archer's Aim and commented:
    These are some vivid cover in this weekly post from Bookwraiths. I like both the one with the 4 riders and the one with the single rider. What do you think?

  5. Haha, I’m actually planning on using this book for the “Riders” theme next week, so I have a favorite one chosen already. Definitely the “angry face” edition.
