Friday Face-Off: Lion
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:
“Is that a lion with horns and a pitchfork?”

I think this is a theme we’ve done before, and I’m running out lion covers! Thankfully, I’ve read the first book of the Kate Daniels series which features lion shifters. Let’s take a look at some of the covers:
From left to right:
Ace Paperback (2007) – Ace Kindle (2009) – Gollancz (2010)
German Edition (2009) –Spanish Edition (2010) – Chinese Edition (2010)
Portuguese Edition (2015) – French Edition (2017) – Hungarian Edition (2015)
Polish Edition (2017) – Thai Edition (2016 – Russian (2020)
I’m not sure I love any of the contenders this week, but I do find the Ace (2009) edition very pretty. It’s a very “generic UF” cover but I love the colors, and damn, that is one cool lion.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
