Book Wars! Firewalker [The Worldwalker Trilogy] by Josephine Angelini (114)

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 US, 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 Salt and Stone by Victoria Scott is.....UK! Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.

Synopsis:
Worlds divide, magic slays, and love lies in the second book of Josephine Angelini’s The Worldwalker Trilogy.

"You think I’m a monster, but my choices, as ruthless as they seem, are justified."

Lily is back in her own universe, and she's ready to start a new life with Rowan by her side. True, she almost died in the Pyre that fueled their escape from New Salem, and must hide her magic for the safety of everyone she cares about, but compared to fighting the Woven, the monstrous creatures inhabiting the alternate Salem, life is looking pretty good.

Unfortunately, Lillian, ruthless ruler of the 13 Cities, is not willing to let Lily go that easily. If she can’t persuade Lily to return to her world, she will force her to come back by doing away with the ones she loves.

Picking up right where Trial By Fire left off, Firewalker is another sexy, fast-paced, heartbreaking thrill ride from internationally bestselling author Josephine Angelini

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 have another second book in a series. This time from the Worldwalker Trilogy from Josephine Angelini.

One thing I have to say about the US covers vs the UK for these books is that the US cover has so much more depth to it. There's layers upon layers when you look at it. I feel like I see something new each and every time I look. I love how the colors build up from the bottom where the trees are.

And while the UK cover is a bit on the artistic side, it just doesn't have the same affect as the US cover does. Sometimes it's nice to have a book without any models on the cover and this one more than works!

So, it's a US vote for me this week. Now it's your turn, tell us which one gets your vote with a quick click below.

I think this is the first time I have actively seen what the US cover is like. The UK one I have seen several times and it has stood out for me, especially when it's paired with the first book.

Looking at these covers it's easy for me to see which is my favourite. I do like the UK cover, and as I mentioned it looks great next to the first book, the faces fitting together to make a whole one. However, I LOVE the US cover.

The US cover looks magical, dramatic, and mysterious. I love the whole effect of this, all the purples, reds, and yellows mixing together to make a breathtaking cover.

The US covers gets my vote this week, which cover gets yours?

  1. It's not letting me vote from my phone but I'm definitely going with the US cover for this one. I liked the original UK cover for the first book much more than the new one (that matches this). The US one has a much more magical feel to it & is just so pretty! Makes me want to rebuy the books
