Friday Face-Off 18th November 2016.

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: “the sun did not shine, it was to wet too play, so we sat in the house, all that cold, cold wet day” – a cover featuring stormy weather

For the theme this week I have chosen: When The Heavens Fall by Marc Turner. I maybe pushing the boundaries of the theme but it’s one of my favourite books and no-one said it had to be realistic stormy weather! 🙂

Cover A:

Cover B:

Cover C:

Cover B:

In short, a stunning cover!

  1. I like A! That cover would get me to pick it up off a shelf immediately. It just feels spooky…and I LOVE spooky!

    B is nice, but I would hesitate to read the book based on the cover because I am not a big fan of huge battle scenes and I feel that the cover shows that those are a possibility in this book.

    C is too simplistic. I have no feelings on it.

    This is a neat weekly meme! Thanks for sharing it. Which is the UK cover?

    1. The UK cover is cover B and it reflects the tone of the book the best which was why I picked it. Cover A reflects part of the book but B just fits the book itself better and alas, it’s fantasy, it doesn’t have overly huge battle scenes but it has loads of battles.😀

    1. I’ve read the book and Cover B fits the book better as there’s two main stories/areas and I always think of the forest when I think of the book but the other area is in a city that ends up in flames and that’s what cover A has gone for and I think that’s why the colours are muted as it’s trying to convey that the city is being destroyed and is burning and that’s why there’s a grayish tint to the colour emphasising the smoking damage. Well, I think that I could be completely wrong of course.😂

  2. I really like the last one with the horse. It’s just really appealing and it makes me curious about the contents of the book, so definitely in a win in my opinion! I do think all of the covers are pretty awesome though.
