The Friday Face-Off is a meme created by Books by Proxy. The idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.
This weeks theme is: “Those darling byegone times… with their delicious fortresses, and their dear old dungeons, and their delightful places of torture” – a cover that is positively medieval.
This week instead of a single book with a variety of different covers I have decided to go with a UK v US theme and offer up the whole five books and their respective UK and US covers for one of my favourite fantasy series The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron.
The UK Covers.
The US Covers.
The UK covers win it for me. There’s nothing wrong with the US but the UK have quite a classic look to them and the style, in my opinion, is something different to what you see with a lot of modern fantasy series and creates a stunning set of covers.
Thoughts?? Agree?? Disagree??
