Cover Comparisons #1 : The Taker by Alma Katsu

 Cover Comparisons is a weekly feature at Fictional Distraction.

The Taker by Alma Katsu                (U.S./U.K./Spain)

Love the U.S.'s book cover the best with its gold and green colors which contrast with the background. The Taker has been on many a book blogger's reading lists for a reason- The cover. But, it's the story that really gets them. The U.K. cover is my next favorite in second place. The problem with The Taker is that all the covers look really spectacular. Keep wondering, if I'm the only one with this problem. Also, noticed since I'm a spanish speaker myself that the translation isn't The Taker in spanish it's really immortal. Just something to think about.

One thing I noticed is that all the covers for Thetaker look vastly different. Its a good thing since they're all representing different contries:)

Thank you for the cover love! Coincidentally, I'm working right now with the US publisher on the covers for the trade paperback edition and the hardcover for second book in the series, The Reckoning. We're trying to make them as spectacular as the first ones.

I like the US cover the best. Something about the colors really catches my eye and makes me want to read the story. It is so interesting to see the different covers being offered. Wow!
