The Friday Face-Off is a new meme created by Books by Proxy, where the idea is to compare the UK and US covers of a book with each week  being a certain theme, this week’s theme is a cover featuring a throne. “I sit here looking out at all I own”.

For the them this week I have chosen King of Thorns (Book 2 in The Broken Empire trilogy) by Mark Lawrence.

Cover A:

Cover B:

Cover C:

Cover D:

Cover E:

Cover F:

Cover E:

For me this is the best cover this week, I know it’s very similar to cover A and slightly similar to cover C too, however I just think the darker overall tone is smarter looking. The swords and bodies, the vibrant red cape, the throne and Jorg Ancrath himself sitting there with his head leaning on his hand, not a care in the world surveying all around him, holding a skull, kicking back, relaxing and chilling after causing all his bloody mayhem and carnage. All adds up to an awesome cover.

Thoughts?? Agree?? Disagree??

Why not join in:

Next weeks theme: 2nd Sept: Hell is empty and all the devils are here – A cover with a demon or demonic creatures.

  1. A great choice of covers, Drew! I have to say that I prefer Cover A. While the darker sky gives it a more brooding tone – I like the detail of the extra arrows and I far prefer the font of A – of course the IDEAL would be the sky in E and the extra detailing of A… Have a great week-end:)
