What lovely covers! And quite varied... I've gone for Feast of Ravens because of David Wyatt's fabulous artwork and the awesome detail on the title...

I love book cover wars but this time I'm not overly fond of any of round 1! My favourite has to be Dawn Finch's though because I'm a sucker for a skull! @cazapr1

I love the Timesmith cover. It suggests adventure, magic, friendship and a quest of sort.

Great covers! Interesting to see the Timesmith cover is slightly different to the one I bought earlier this year. I'm going to vote for that one as it was on the strength of the cover alone that I picked it up off the shelf at my local book shop.

All great covers but really love the Brotherhood of Shades cover, the colours are great and it reminds me of a kaleidoscope. The book is like a kaleidoscope giving you glimpses of other worlds, love it, could not put it down.
