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 week’s Friday Face-Off theme is a cover that features armour: “Pretty armour doesn’t make a warrior.” This week I have picked The Red Knight by Miles Cameron.

Cover A:

The Red Knight Miles Cameron 1

Cover B:

The Red Knight Miles Cameron 2

Cover C:

The Red Knight Miles Cameron 3

Cover D:

The Red Knight Miles Cameron 4

Cover E:

The Red Knight Miles Cameron 5

Cover F:

The Red Knight Miles Cameron 6

And the winner is… COVER D!

Honestly, any one of these could have won it for me this week. I really liked them all. D edges it though. The composition is fantastic. The metalic heavy looking gauntlet grasping that large sword, the rich red cloak billowing, and the red splashes of blood on the metalwork. Eye catching, and intriguing. I love it.

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 week’s theme is a cover that features a cat: “I meant,” said Ipslore bitterly, “what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?” Death thought about it. CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.”
