I interrupt my own regularly scheduled blog post for some super exciting book news! The cover for Empire of Storms– the next book in Sarah J Maas’ Throne of Glass series- was revealed at Book Expo America yesterday!
Confession: I haven’t actually read Throne of Glass yet. I OWN it, and it is currently sitting second in line on my TBR shelf, just behind A Court of Mist and Fury (which I am so excited to read I could cry, but it’s not supposed to be delivered until Tuesday. *sigh*), but I just keep not getting around to it. This summer, though, for sure. Honestly, after A Court of Thorns and Roses I’ll read anything with Sarah J Maas’ name on it pretty much without question.
But enough about me and my consistent failure to get caught up on one of the most popular YA Fantasy series in existence right now. Let’s get to the covers!
Empire of Storms Cover US Edition
Empire of Storms Cover UK/ANZ Edition
Empire of Storms will be published on September 6, 2016.
I haven’t even read this series yet and I’m still in love with this cover. Though, to be honest, I kind of like the UK cover better than the US one. I like the sharp contrast of the white background, though I also understand that the grey/blue background of the US cover is meant to create a stormy look to compliment the title. Thematically I love them both, but from a purely visual standpoint I am going to have to go with the UK version. Anyone from the UK wanna do a swap when it comes out? (Seriously I will definitely be caught up by then. Swear it.)
What do you all think of the Empire of Storms cover; is it better or worse than some of the previous covers from the Throne of Glass series? And which of the 2 versions of the book cover do you like better?
