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:
“Live in the saddle. Die on the hog – a cover featuring riders!“
YES! A topic which is tailor made for fantasy fans everywhere. I mean, there are tons of book covers with riders on them, but I already have the perfect cover in mind, so I’m going to coast this week.
Let us take a look at my pick!
AND THE WINNER IS . . .
Sure, I’m cheating a bit this week, but I’m okay with that, because all these covers are damn amazing.
First off, I have to admit I love all these covers. They are all eye-catching. The Dinosaur Princess is just a little more striking to me though. The dinosaur charging with razor sharp teeth opened to engorge its enemy is so visceral and menacing that I had to pick it.
So, do you agree with my pick? Disagree? Love them all? Hate them all? Let us know!
