Book Wars! Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly


Book Wars a weekly feature hosted between two book review blogs – A Life Bound By Books & Much Loved Books!


It’s a fact that book lovers know all about the covers of the books they covet.  Often when a title is released here in the UK, it’s sometimes vastly different across the pond in the US.  So, Lisa from A Life Bound By Books and I have come together to create Book Wars to talk about the difference in covers when it comes to the UK vs. US versions. We hope from time to time authors will chime in with their thoughts as well. We welcome everyone to comment and share their thoughts too! The more the merrier!

Book Wars is a new feature for both of us which we hope to post every Monday, while we get it up and running this is subject to change as we participate in other features or tours we have committed to prior to setting up Book Wars.

Before we get to this weeks Book Wars, we have a winner to announce. The Book Wars winner for Seraphina is USA!  
Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.

Synopsis: They're out for your soul.

And they don't have heaven in mind...

Willow knows she's different from other girls, and not just because she loves tinkering with cars. Willow has a gift. She can look into the future and know people's dreams and hopes, their sorrows and regrets, just by touching them. she has no idea where this power comes from. But the assassin, Alex, does. Gorgeous, mysterious Alex knows more about Willow than Willow herself does. He knows that her powers link to dark and dangerous forces and that he's one of the few humans left who can fight them. When Alex finds himself falling in love with his sworn enemy, he discovers that nothing is as it seems, least of all good and evil.

Let the Wars Begin:
Its now time to make our decision, let's see what we think about the covers and pick our favorite cover.
Lisa This week we're taking a look at the Angel Burn covers and I'll admit that this is an easy one for me. Hands down, the US cover. There's just something a bit off putting in the UK cover. It's creepy and not in a good way. So, my vote this week goes to the US cover.
Michelle
Like Lisa my vote also goes for the USA one this week, I have not read this book, but after reading the synopsis the UK cover just doesn't seem to fit, it seems more like a zombie angel than an angelic angel.
I love how the USA cover has the shimmer of light around the cover model, it makes it feel more ethereal and is very fitting for an angel book.
