Cover Comparisons #24: Mercy by Rebecca Lim

Living in Germany gives me the perfect opportunity to compare original covers with the ones German publishers choose. Sometimes they're gorgeous, sometimes they make me cringe, but it's always interesting to see different covers for the same novel.

Cover Comparisons is a weekly feature here at Fictional Distraction.

Mercy by Rebecca Lim
(UK / US / GER)

To be honest, I don't like the US cover of Mercy at all. It's something I would never pick up. But I'm having a hard time to decide whether I prefer the UK or the GER cover. They're both gorgeous in their own way. What I love about the German cover is how they accentuated the model's eyes by having them colored so gorgeously while the rest of the cover is quite pale. But I also really love the design of the UK cover. I just can't decide.

Which version do you like best?
