US Vs. UK: Devil's Kiss Covers

US // UK

I like both these covers, but I prefer the UK one this week. I love the image of the bridge (which is also used on Sergei Lukyanenko's The Last Watch paperback), and the red of the cross. It's very eye-catching. Although it's not the one I'd buy, I do think the US one represents the story more, and it's good to see Billi get some cover time.

Which would end up on your bookshelf?

I wouldn't have read it with the UK title as it looked too thriller-ish to me, like Hunger Games. Like you said, the US one represents the story more though the girl doesn't look half Indian AT ALL.

I'd go for the US! I like it WAYY better than the UK... :-)

Oh... I think the US cover looks like a romance novel (with swords!). I like romance novel covers, but from what I know of the book, the UK one fits better.

I like them both, though I think the US wins for me this time.

I don't like either but the US is a little bit better to my taste.

The UK cover makes me think of the Mortal Instruments series. I like the US cover much better!

They look gender specific to me. The US geared towards YA teen girls and the UK....men in general. I like the UK one but I like the US one better.

I just never got the American book cover. It's a white chick. The MC is Pakistani. I like both but I think the UK version is more intriguing.

This is too hard to decide. I was first attracted to this book when I saw the UK cover on your site, but now I think I'm good with either!

The US one would definitely end up on my shelf.

I like both. I origally favoured the US version, but now I've read the book I prefer the UK one - I think it's more original.

I like the UK cover.

I want to read that said...

I like the UK one - I haven't read the book so I don't know if it fits better but its the one I would pick up out of the two:)

I like both covers as well but I'd be more tempted to pick up the US cover first.

The US cover is way better. It seems more interesting to me.
