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

Mogsy’s Pick:

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?

  1. 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.
