Friday Face-Off: Widdershins Adventures

Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy! Each Friday, we will pit cover against cover while also taking the opportunity to showcase gorgeous artwork and feature some of our favorite book covers. If you want to join the fun, simply choose a book each Friday that fits that week’s predetermined theme, post and compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog.

This week’s theme is:


Mogsy’s Pick:

Widdershins Adventures by Ari Marmell

It’s not every day Friday Face-Off gets a freebie topic, so I wanted to take this opportunity to do something special. Instead of pitting a bunch of covers against each other, I’ve decided to showcase one of my favorite cover sets, that of the Widdershins Adventures by Ari Marmell, published by Pyr. The series follows a scrappy young thief who lives in a world where every person, from the wealthiest noble to grimiest street urchin, worships one of the dozens of gods approved by the Hallowed Pact. But what happens if one of those gods wind up riding shotgun in your head?

There are four books in the series, and I think cover artist Jason Chan has done a phenomenal job capturing the different facets of our protagonist’s personality for each one, from impish and playful to serious and introspective. I also love the minimalist concept, the use of white space and limited color, and of course, the full set of hardcovers look amazing on my shelf. Feast your eyes on these beauties:
