“I have crossed oceans of time to find you.”


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:

“Thus with a kiss I die” – a cover featuring a couple

Well, I thought this week was going to be a doddle.  How wrong could I be.  I found a couple of covers for Dracula (The Count and Mina) and also a couple of covers for Jacqueline Carey’s Miranda and Caliban.  But, I decided to go with Vampire Empire (The Greyfriar (Vampire Empire #1) by Clay Griffith, Susan Griffith).  Again only a couple of covers for this one but both so very different:

My favourite – I had to go with the dark vibe:

vampire empire

Which is your favourite?

    I favor the other cover.

      The model on the second cover reminds me of Angeline Jolie for some reason.

    I agree with you. Definitely the dark vibe is my favorite. I’m not even really sure what kind of message they were trying to send with the other one.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well, the second cover, it just doesn’t seem to pertain to the story at all – although, if you liked the cover enough to pick it up it wouldn’t really matter until you’d finished – and then wondered what the cover was trying to say.

    I loved the way Gary Oldman delivered that line in Bram Stoker’s Dracula!

    I definitely prefer the dark couple. They look like they mean it, and if they don’t have an Empire yet, they’re going to build one! The lady on her own looks like she might be struggling with something she just ate. Or is a delicate flower and someone has just said something simply unspeakable!!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha, yes, the lady on her own does look a little bit petulant doesn’t she – and franky I’m not really sure what that cover is trying to do exactly – the cover on the left is much more representative of the story.

    I far prefer your favourite cover – and surely that IS Angeline Jolie on the other version:)).

  5. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    I didn’t even realize this book had any other cover! I agree, the Pyr one is better!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, the second one just doesn’t fit with the story for me.
      Lynn 😀
