Cover Wars: Immortal Beloved

This is an easy choice for me - as much as I really like the colours and circular design on the US one I just really LOVE the UK one! It does look a bit similar to Shiver/Linger though - or is that just me?


Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan
From Goodreads: New name, new town, new life. Nastasya has done it too often to count. And there’s no end in sight. Nothing ever really ends... when you’re immortal. But this time is different: Nastasya knows that this new town must hold her salvation—or her death.

Nastasya was born into darkness, and has embraced it her whole life. Four hundred years ago, a tragedy robbed her of her birthright, and she’s been living a lie ever since. Now, four centuries of exploring the depths and limits of dark power has left Nastasya feeling sickened unto death. If she continues down this road, she will end up as a very dark, twisted, evil thing—with unthinkable power. Or she can begin the long, painful road toward light, and reclaim the destiny that others tried to destroy.

They’re rare. You may have never met one, never sat next to one on a plane, never eaten in the same restaurant at the same time. But the Immortals are there. Have always been there. Will always be there. Moving among humans, playing out their own cursed fate. Sometimes subtly, sometimes with huge, sweeping implications for mankind. But no one will ever know. Except you.

What do you think?

I'm not sure y'know, I like elements of both. I like the more paranormal UK one, but I like the colours and font of the US. Hmmm!

UK for sure!

I love the UK one. It does look a bit like Shiver/Linger, but I love those covers too!

From the perspective of someone who has read this AMAZING book, I think the US one ties in much more with the story. The UK one is a bit too with the general trend of supernatural books for me. It is certainly beautiful but Immortal Beloved is so much more brilliant than just the everyday. You know?
I'm saying this but I think I will still get a copy to sit next to my US version because I love it so much.

I love the UK one EXCEPT that it reminds me of the Shiver cover for the UK, so that minuses a few points from it :) Not that it's cover just because it's not distint enough.

Hmm, I like the UK one better, because I think the design of it is more appealing than the one for the US version.
