You know, I've noticed that German covers tend to be awesome. Why is that? haha

Katie  (Books and Katie) I think the cover is definitely going to change. If you look at the other editions of the first two, they each have covers that are similar to this one.

Yeah, they totally overhauled the covers for the series. And I really wish they hadn't, as the originals were gorgeous.

Katie  (Books and Katie) I liked the original, too!

I'm sure they'll change it. Is this a new company making them, Penguin? Is that why?

No, same publisher. I think they just wanted to create buzz around the new release. Also, maybe make the covers more boy-friendly?

jennalyn ♡ The UK cover is so much better in my opinion. Love your reaction; that gif was hilarious!

Well, I guess I can respect that. I just wish, for the sake of everyone who either had already bought the first two books in the old covers and everyone who loved the old covers, they would make the third book with both. Because now, since I am weird about covers matching, I have to return my first two book and buy the ones with covers that match the third.

It would just.. be fan friendly, yano? Making the third book with two cover options instead of just one.

Yeah, Penguin does that a lot. Like with Andrea Cremer's books and Marie Lu's and a whole bunch of others.

Oh well then, I guess.

Thanks for responding :)

Nathania Ma I totally agree with you on the part where Elder whines when he is no longer in charge owing to his own incapacity to lead. However, considering his age and upbringing, it is reasonable I fact, I would be surprised otherwise. The romance between Elder and Amy is so sweet already that I find the unnecessary love triangle disappointing. I am hoping she will not repeat the problems in her future works.
