Friday Face-Off: A Favorite Series
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:
~ a covers from a FAVORITE SERIES
The Wounded Kingdom by RJ Barker
Book 1: Age of Assassins
Orbit (2017) – Italian Edition (2018) – French Edition (2018) – German Edition (2018)
Book 2: Blood of Assassins
Orbit (2018) – French Edition (2019) – German Edition (2019)
Book 3: King of Assassins
Orbit (2018) – French Edition (2019)
The Wounded Kingdom trilogy has become one of my favorite fantasy series in recent years, but I think might be my first time seeing covers for editions other than the US/UK Orbit. I’m just floored by how beautiful the French covers are, so much more epic and evocative than the originals!
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
Oh wow, those French covers are Stunning 😍
Yes, I think they’re gorgeous!

I agree with you! The French covers are stunning!
They really are! Blows the rest of the competition away!
I agree that the French covers are amazing, particularly the one for the first book with that figure perched at the tower’s top!
Right?! So dramatic! I love it!
I love those French editions too! Actually he’s been lucky in getting quite a few great covers for his series😁
Totally, I hope the other countries editions will be completed at some point!
Great picks this week!

You picked my favorites. I love that German cover for the 1st book. That really seems to say assassin to me better than the others, though they’re great, too.
Yes, that definitely is the most “assassiny” of them all!
We picked the same ones 😀
Love the book 1 covers, esp the French one.
I love the covers that you’ve chosen. The scale and attention to detail is absolutely gorgeous.
