This is me just having a good old fashioned moan rather than actually expecting an answer, I know there is marketing strategies and the forces of evil behind cover changes half way through series...
But, my main issue right now is with the changes to The Green Rider series by Kristen Britain.
It's awful. The 'old' covers were absolutely stunningly beautiful and now! Well, I'l let you judge for yourself.
Book 1 -
Old Cover New Cover
Okaaaaay. The horsey is very pretty buy REALLY! What were they thinking. And the wings! As far as I can remember there were NO pegasus in this book. And from this cover on, all the imagination has gone out of the art work.
Just look at them, aren't they SO pretty.
And then we have THESE!
I mean, it's not that they are terribly awful or anything and there is the added bonus that they match in that there is a recurring theme with the covers but, the originals were beautiful and showed scenes from the novels.
I don't know guys. I always shiver when I see new covers.
It is a pet hate of mine, esoecially when you have all the books in the series up to that point on your shelf, looking nice and pretty and matching and then suddenly WHAM new cover design.
What do you think?
