Friday Face-Off – 22nd March 2019

Friday Face-Off – 22nd March 2019

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 cover theme is a cover featuring a king: “A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse.”.

My chosen book for this theme is The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:


Cover F:


And the winner is… cover D!

I love the art style on this one. The design of the king in his armour is imposing and intriguing. Simple and yet eye catching all at once. Special mention to cover B which is a close second for me this week.

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 featuring a unicorn: “I thought unicorns were more… fluffy.”
