Most of you know I have been doing this since I started the blog. I love comparing different covers for the same book. So now that there is two of us on the blog I thought I would actually make it a regular feature on a Monday and a Friday. And since Destiny is from the US and Siobhan is from the UK it would even better. So here is todays UK vs US.

Siobhan: Come on! Is there even a contest here? Seriously, I stunning is the UK cover. Its just captures the imaginations and feels so magical. I love the dark colours and the simple image of the wings, Breathtaking. The US Cover I am sorry but I think it is just awful.For seventeen years, Eloise Hart had no idea the world of Faery even existed. Now she has been abducted and trapped in the Rath of Lord Strahan, King of Faery. Strahan was only meant to rule for seven years, as Faery tradition dictates, and then give up his crown to another. But he won’t comply, and now chaos threatens both worlds. The only one who can break his stranglehold on the Faery court is his wife, Eloise’s aunt, Antonia. Using Eloise to lure Antonia, Strahan captures his wife, desperate to end the only threat to his reign. Together with her best friends Jo and Devin, Eloise must place her trust in Lucas, her handsome protector, and Strahan’s mysterious son, Eldric, and forge alliances with other Fae in a dangerous attempt to free Antonia for ever
Destiny: I love the UK cover! It just illustrates the world of Faery beautifully without even having to even read the synopsis. The cover color combinations are gorgeous. The US cover colors are not as eye catching and the font title is not one I find appealing at all. Also, the UK's view of a faery wing is much more attractive than half of an almost unrealistic looking girl's face on the US cover.
What do you prefer?
