The Friday Face-Off is a meme created by Books by Proxy, where the idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.
This weeks theme is:
“Take me down to the paradise city, Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty” – a cover featuring a city.
Yes, I used a Guns N’ Roses lyric from their classic song Paradise City! Because it’s awesome, here’s the song:
Guns N’ Roses: Paradise City
Anyhow, onwards to the covers and my choice! 🙂
For the theme this week I have chosen:
The City by Stella Gemmell.
Thoughts?? Agree?? Disagree??
Whilst getting the covers for The City I noticed that the cover for The Immortal Throne (The City #2) – (which I have a copy of but as yet it remains sadly unread) has the same artwork as the French cover for The City! Those sneaky frogs! A little more sleuthing and they have also used the same artwork for their own cover of The Immortal Throne! Can’t really fault them as it looks really smart! 🙂
