Days Of Blood And Starlight Cover Compare

This might be a random event here at the the Outsider but when a cover catches my eye it'll probably pop up here.

Today it's the turn of the eagerly awaited sequel to Daughter Of Smoke And Bone, Days Of Blood And Starlight.

I have this version of Daughter

I wanted the US cover below but for once sense prevailed and I didn't buy a copy of book I'd already been given.

However, now I've seen the cover reveals for Days Of Blood And Starlight I think I'm going to have to cave and order the US version of both.

This is the UK release and I have to say, I'm not a fan... I don't know why but there's just something I don't like. On the other hand, I love the US cover below.

I think it's stunning, it could possibly be because I have a thing about masks, painted or otherwise, but I also think it looks like the sequel to the first book. The UK covers just don't mesh together in my opinion. I've pre-ordered the US version of Days Of Blood And Starlight, now I need to donate my copy to my sister (I'm sure she'll love it) and track down a reasonably priced US hardcover edition of Daughter Of Smoke And Bone.

What do you think? Am I too fussy?


  1. I like both sets of covers but I don't think the UK covers work together as a set. If I was buying Daughter Of Smoke And Bone I would buy the US cover as I think it's really awesome.

  2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is one my TBR list. I've nominated you for the Versatile Blog Award. Check out my Versatile Blog Award post for details.

  3. Personally I prefer the UK Cover in both cases, but I think that's primarily because I'm not comfortable about reading YA and with the UK covers it's not obvious!

  4. I like the 2nd cover in both cases.
