Here we are again with the Friday Face Off meme created by Books by Proxy .   This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite book covers.  The rules are fairly simple each week, following a predetermined theme (list below) choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite.   Future week’s themes are listed below. This week’s theme:

‘Then let the crabs be cursed by Odin’ – a cover featuring a Viking ‘

I had a few books in mind for this one but when I checked they didn’t have alternative covers, so another tough week!  I’ve gone for : The Grim Company (Grim Company #1) by Luke Scull.  Strictly speaking these covers aren’t really vikings – although they could be right?

viking 2

Which is your favourite?

Next week – a cover featuring a Dragon

Future themes:

13th October 2017 – You have nice manners for a thief, and a LIAR!’  – a cover with a dragon

20th October 2017 – ‘Me and my….’ – a cover featuring a Shadow

27th October 2017 – “Thus with a kiss I die” – a cover featuring a couple

3rd November 2017 – ‘Desperate affairs require desperate measures’ – a regency style cover

    I totally agree with your choice of cover.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks – I did struggle finding one for this topic.
      Lynn 😀

    I actually like the one to the left of the one you picked better. Maybe because its darker

  3. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    Impressive: that helm looks far more powerful and menacing than a warrior in full armor! 🙂

  4. Tammy

    I definitely think your choice works for “Vikings.” That would be hard, I completely forgot about this today, but I probably wouldn’t have been able to think of a book anyway!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I struggled too – I wondered if the Train your dragons books had any covers but I’ve not read them. Sometimes I can think of a book but there are no alternative covers.
      Lynn 😀

    Yes – the helm looks fab, though I think I like the close-up version on the cover to the left.

    Oh my gosh! I was at a loss as to what book/cover to feature today and couldn’t think of any so I just skipped this week’s. I can’t believe I forgot about this one, though! Oops! Anyway, I like the helmet designs too, but my favorite might be the one to the left of your winner, featuring the close up 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I struggled with this one – was thinking of How to Train Your Dragon series but haven’t read them.
      Lynn 😀

    I agree with your choice – very cool helmet 🙂
