I voted for Book Four - Steve Feasey - Changeling - Published by Macmillan Books 2009
It looks amazing, It all depends on what appeals to you in your type of book to what you are going to vote for.
But I also like book 2, very pretty with lots of detail.
It is really difficult to decide as they are all good.

Mortlock definitely wins it for me. Firstly, the colour - not enough green is used to give a feeling of horror on book covers thse days - but look at some of the genuinely scary film posters from the last few decades - Alien! The Fog! Rosemary's Baby! All green!

And then there's those terrifying bird images. They immediately brought to mind the genuinely creepy book The Raven's Knot by Robin Jarvis! I think the whole concept of being chased by a giant, flesh-eating bird is pretty damn scary and the image on this cover portrays that feeling perfectly.

it definitely has to be Mortlock by Jon Mayhew for me.It's one of those mind-benders; is it just birds or is there a face hiding there?

Mortlock! Easily the most striking with fabulous strong colours and lots of emotion.

I went for Mortlock - so delightfully gothic with a hint of gruesome - mist, crows, crypts and a sword in the title...

I'll have to go for Mortlock - not only is the cover stunning, but it's so relevent to the book (which is equally creepy!), will also follow you on twitter - @AlexEatsBooks

I vote Mortlock.

Lia said...

Mortlock is easily the most eye-catching AND appealing. It promises an urgent adventure, and thrills and spills galore. My kind of book!
