Good times. I like both the first two covers, but Passenger is my favorite.

Barry Hutchison said...

A great bunch to start with, but The Passenger takes it for me.

Conni Carr said...

The cover for Passenger is classic and subtly creepy...the hands down winner of the pack this morning ;0)

Lari Don said...

They are all strong covers, but a werewolf in a leather jacket does it for me every time.

Tabby Cat said...

Werewolf in a leather jacket nearly had me but given my love for all things fae, it had to be The Uniforn Hunter!

Jo Ann Hakola said...

Passenger catches my attention and keeps it!

deadclownart said...

Battle Lines. Will Hill. BOOM!

cargord said...

Perhaps its the girl in me but I love book 4 and if that wasn't there it would be Passenger x

Zac said...

Will Hill's covers are always awesome so Battle Lines has got my vote.

Maleeka Allen said...

I love Book 2 as the Graphic's are much much better and would definitely appeal to me to buy :)

rhiannon alwen said...

Passenger for me, it's very intriguing.

CazApr1 said...

I love the first two but Will Hill has to pip it at the post!

FireStarBooks said...

They all look great but I have to stay with my Will Hill :D

Filipa said...

I love Will Hill's books, but I have to admit that the steampunk-ish cover for Passenger is really cool ! So, 12 points to Passenger from France !

Ben F said...

Battle Lines by Will Hill :D

If you ask me they all look great, but the second one looks the most proffessional and eye catching of them all. It also happens to incorporate some of m favorite things haha

diva1977 said...

Passenger cover is clean lines and eye catching , draws me in.
Department 19 is too busy no focal point
Coming from an artistic family i think the other 2 covers graphics are poor

Mr Vincent said...

CONGRATULATIONS, Peter Gilby please get in touch with your postal details for the book competition. You Can contact me via twitter or email will do. Thanks everyone for entering see you all next round with more great book covers!

I think that the first 2 covers are great. But i will choose Battle Lines by Will Hill. The graphic of Battle Lines is very catching. Passenger's cover is a little too dull for me.
