The Immortals Blog Tour: US Vs. UK - Everlasting Covers + UK Giveaway!

US // UK

I actually like both of these covers, but I like the UK one more. In real life, Ever's half of the cover comes away like a flap, revealing more of Damen underneath. It's a really nice way to end the series and is very eye-catching on the shelf! Even though these two covers are quite similar when it comes to the colours used, I do think the UK one has done it a bit better. It reminds me of different auras, which I hope was the intention! I also like the UK strapline 'Will their love pass its greatest test?' I suppose we'll have to read it to find out...

The girl used on the US cover reminds me of Dianna Agron (Quinn) from Glee - anyone else? Random comment there, but I thought it was her when I first saw the cover! I prefer the US title font and the smaller author name at the top, though I don't think the image of the flower works as well as it could have. It looks like it's just been photoshopped onto the middle of the cover, and I personally don't think it adds a lot to the whole image.

So the pretty UK cover wins this one for me. How about you guys? Which do you like best?

Thank you for this! I actually prefer the US cover but I have the UK cover, from Macmillan. I definitely would have chosen the US cover if I bought it.

I prefer the UK cover - especially the swash of the R. I thought the flower on the US cover was just a purple glow until I read your comment on it!

They both look great, but I prefer the US because of the flower.

She does look like Dianna Agron! Weird. I think I prefer the UK one because I like the glow that comes from the flower, but both are pretty.

OMG, I thought I was the only one who thought the model was Dianna Agron! I prefer the UK one too. I don't know what it is, it's just a lot nicer then the US one. I wish I could enter the giveaway :)

Personally I prefer the US one based on the pictures (based on what your saying if I saw the UK one in the shop I might change my mind though).

OH MY GOD!!
I totally thought i was the only one that thought it looked suspiciously like Dianna Agron. I personally like the US cover better. It seems more fitting for this particular book, especially with the flower.
