The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy and now hosted over at Lynn’s Books. The idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.

This weeks’ theme is a cover featuring a hero: ‘I am Aragorn son of Arathorn; and if by life or death I can save you, I will.’

This weeks’ book is The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan.

Cover A:

hero1

Cover B:

hero2

Cover C:

hero3

Cover D:

hero4

Cover E:

hero5

Cover F:

hero6

Cover G:

hero7

And the winner is… COVER E!

I love this, the steampunk style mechanical dragon staring down at the hero. That dragon looks incredible, and the sense of reverence with which it appears to look at the figure with adds an air of heroism to the character.

What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my winner, or does one of the others work better for you? Let me know in the comments!

Next weeks’ theme is a cover featuring a crown: ‘Heavy is the head that wears the crown.’
