This month I'm looking at one of my favourite Fantasy books - The Furies of Calderon by the fabulous Jim Butcher. The Codex Alera series is one of the best contained and epic fantasy series I've ever read. Each book is a complete story in itself but builds towards a fantastic arc. Seriously, I can't recommend this series enough. But which cover of book one would you like..?
US Cover: An action scene of a guy with a sword attacked by by some air-born spirits - it screams action and excitement
UK Cover: This is bright and attractive showing the links of Calderon with the Roman Empire and the symbol/rune bathed in flames is just cool
German Cover: This is very green - in fact it reminds me more of a Robin Hood poster or possibly Green Arrow with the shadowy guy with the long bow in the middle of the forest. I do like the Codex Alera shield though!
Italian Cover: The woman floating above the water reminds me of various YA covers I've seen recently...it doesn't really show much of what the story is about.
My Verdict? The UK Cover - I love the colours and the rune!
Which cover is your favourite...? Why?
