Penguin decided to change the look of the Cahill Witch Chronicles by Jessica Spotswood. The first book in the series Born Wicked was already released in hardcover so only the paperback edition, which comes out in january will have the new cover.
I personally don't like it when a cover changes from edition to edition. I really like it when books from a series have matching covers so you can recognize them as one. But on the other hand this gives us one more pretty cover: (The left one is the old, the right one the new)
I haven't read Born Wicked yet (but after reading the summary I
I think both are really gorgeous. The first one has a more romantic flair, and is enchanting. I love the smooth brown of the cover and the little details left and right of the series name.
The new one is more mysterious, more darker, more witch than fairy. It definitely looks more like a paranormal fantasy book than a romance story. I love the crows (or ravens??) and the moon.
Though the new one is more appealing I would, when in a store, prefer the old one. It says clearly witch part of the series the book is and not just that it it part of a series. I once bought the second book of a series before the first one by mistake so now I'm always careful with bying a series I do not know. But that of course is just my opinion :)
