Newton's The Book of Transformation cover

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Mark Charan Newton posted earlier today (on his blog here) two drafts for the cover of the third book in the Legends of the Red Sun series, The Book of Transformation. The character depicted on the cover is a new one. Although I loved most of the multiple covers for the first novel, Nights of Villjamur (the first UK hardcover city art being the best imho), I didn't really like the cover art of the second book, City of Ruin. The UK paperback cover is in the same art style as this last one(s) (you can look at it again here).

So which one should he choose (don't forget to comment on his blog)? Even though I'm still not a huge fan of the "real" girl on the cover, I prefer the first one, the close-up. Here you go (the book will be out in July 2011) :

definitely the close up. in the first one she seems more like just part of the background.

Both are pretty terrible. I hope they decide to change it before deciding on a final cover. But I agree with both of you, the close up is slightly better.

Less bad would be more appropriate :P
