UK: 7th March 2011
US:  1st September 2011

Plain Kate lives in a time afraid of magic.She has a gift for carving ‘lucky’ wooden-charms. Known as Witch-Blade, her unusual gift attracts dangerous attention in a place where witches are burned. When her village falls on bad times, suspicion falls on Kate. Scared for her life, she seeks the help of a mysterious stranger. In exchange for her shadow, the stranger will assist her, but Kate becomes part of a terrifying plan, darker than she ever dreamed.

I haven't read this book yet but I really want to. I like both covers. The UK one is so pretty and I love the name name change to Wood Angel the font used is very nice. However, I think I am learning more towards the US one. I love everything about this cover. Especially the image of the girl and cat on the roof over looking the city. I also really like the pattern at the bottom as well.

Winner: US

What do you prefer?


  1. uk as i have that one already and it pretty but the us one is brighter but if i think about it ill end up buying that copy to lol

  2. I love the UK cover! I actually think I would have passed right by the US one, I know thats bad. The US one just doesn't grab my attention at all. I probable would not have even thought it was a fantasy book.

  3. I love both covers but I'd probably be more likely to buy the US cover, as it's more unique. =^.^=
    Oh and it has a cat on it. That's always a plus.

  4. By far the UK! No offence but l think the US looks old fashioned and not for YA at all (l believe it's a YA book?)
    UK is so pretty =)

  5. I actually don't mind either of them! They're both pretty in their own way! I love the colours of the US edition and the fairy-like cover of the UK edition! So it's a tie for me!

  6. I prefer the UK version thats is the one i would pick off the shelf!
