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.
Last week's winner is the US cover of Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi.

(US old / US new / UK / GER)
A colour scheme is definitely recognizable and I love it. Sadly I like the German cover the least - in my eyes it's just weird and I don't think I'd ever pick it up in a book store. Love the US and UK covers though and I'm having a hard time to decide on a favorite. I think I like the new US cover best, because I love everything about it - the picture and how its colors were so beautifully modified, the light (= the glow)... just everything. For the second place, it's a tie between the old US and the UK cover - they're really beautiful, too, but in my opinion not as much as the new US cover.
