Battle of the Covers: UK vs USA


As many of you know, Kresley Cole is our Author of the Month and with May coming to an end, what better way to end this than with our first edition of the Battle of the Covers!  We've all seen them and sometimes, we can't always get the one we want.  For this edition, we're showcasing Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark book covers. Which cover do you think is better?

 
USA                                         UK

I will admit, I was hesitant to read this series at first because of the US cover. It's very cheesy! But don't let that fool you! The actual book is amazing! And I've come to adore these corny covers. For this round, I think I'll go with the UK cover. 


 
USA                                         UK

I love the colors in the UK cover, but there's just something soo sexy in the USA one that captures the essence of the characters better. Kaderin looks bad ass with that sheath she's got wrapped around her leg. Very sensual and powerful. Just like this book!



 
USA                                         UK

What about this one? I like that they have Mariketa's signature red hair. But based on these covers alone, I would have gravitated towards the UK cover more!

Nathan Kamp, need I say more? *grins*



 
USA                                         UK

As you know, I LOVE PAUL MARRON. But this shot of him isn't doing it for me. I know, I know...  Sad to say... But he looks nothing like Cade anyways. So I'm going with the UK cover, even though I don't like the girl that much either. What is that on her nose? Someone get her a tissue to wipe that off!



 
USA                                         UK

USA cover.... just yum! Rawr! *claws the air*



 
USA                                         UK

This one is a bit of a tie for me. I love the lips on the UK cover. But has anyone noticed that for Dreams of a Dark Warrior, Pleasure of a Dark Prince and Deep Kiss of Winter, it's all the same guy on the cover? Does anyone know who he is?


So who wins this edition????  What do you think?

I like some of the US covers, but I think overall, UK wins. :)

it's weird...the fist 6 of my IAD books are US covers...and then the last 3 are UK ones. over all i do like our UK ones better (but that's like the first time it's ever happened!!)

usually they only releas different covers here if a series is going well. it's why only the later BDB covers are different too. grrr.

great blog post girls!

It's about half and half with me...but the newer KC USA covers are the bomb!

Love this post!

I love this! I rarely see anything but US covers. I have to say that I'm 1/2 & 1/2 w/ my favs though!

Wow! This is interesting! We're getting mixed reactions!

Sometimes I wish I lived in the UK just so I can get some of their book covers!
