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, Michelle from Much Loved 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 Falconer By: Elizabeth May is....... the UK cover!! 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: It's been months since Aria learned of her mother's death. 

Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him.

Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It's a moment they've been longing for with countless expectations. And it's a moment that lives up to all of them. At least, at first.

Then it slips away. The Tides don't take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry's control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist?

Threatened by false friends and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night?

In this second book in her spellbinding Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi combines fantasy and sci-fi elements to create a captivating adventure-and a love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.

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 is a MUST read YA trilogy! I LOVE these characters, their story and the journey that we follow along in such a unique setting and place that the author has created. And this is one of those sets of books that I'd LOVE to have both US and UK covers on my shelves... they are both just so amazing and eye catching. The colors of both versions... I LOVE them. Both!

The only major difference for me is one has Perry and the other features Aria. Being a HUGE fan of Perry, and look at that model that's depicting Perry! You can't look away. Well, I can't at least. And because of being a Perry fan I must choose the US cover. I love Aria and she's an amazing female character so the US wins for me this week by a very slight margin. This was another tough one that's for sure!
Michelle This is another series I need to finish, so I am going into this without knowing what happens in this book so I can't judge the covers by how relevant they are.

At first glance the UK cover is the first to catch my eye, but after having a better look at both of them my vote goes to USA.

I think the USA is more mysterious and better fitting to what I have read in the first book. I love the overall effect of this one more than the UK one.

Its a USA vote for me this week.

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