Book Wars! Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi (41)

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 US vs. UK 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!


Before we get to this weeks Book Wars, we have a winner to announce. The Book Wars winner for The Beautiful and the Cursed By: Page Morgan is USA !! Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.


Also, there's a poll at the bottom of the post that we'd love to hear your input for the two covers! Tell us which one YOU love the most.

Synopsis:
The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do—and they are just as determined to stay together.

Within the confines of a cave they're using as a makeshift refuge, they struggle to reconcile their people, Dwellers and Outsiders, who are united only in their hatred of their desperate situation. Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. Then Roar arrives in a grief-stricken fury, endangering all with his need for revenge.

Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble an unlikely team for an impossible rescue mission. Cinder isn't just the key to unlocking the Still Blue and their only hope for survival--he's also their friend. And in a dying world, the bonds between people are what matter most.

In this final book in her earth-shattering Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.

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.

I LOVE these books and the one thing I LOVE about them the most is that the covers all fit together so well. The UK and the US books look so good on your shelves that makes it even harder to choose a favorite. BUT that's just what I'm going to do... and this week my favorite is - the US cover. Mainly because I LOVE Perry and we get a chance to see his character gracing another cover in this trilogy.

There are a couple things I love about both covers and one of the things is that they have the aether in the sky and that both give readers a hint to how wild their world really is. So, this week I've chosen the US cover.

So, now it's YOUR turn to choose a cover and vote for YOUR favorite.

While I love the cover for the SA one, I think I prefer the UK one this time. I love the colours of the blue and the purple, it just makes it so eye catching. I love the effect of the sky, and the silhouettes....basically this is an very pretty cover.

UK wins for me this week.

VOTE for YOUR favorite cover of Through the Ever Night NOW!
