Cover Wars: Nearly Gone vs. Dreams of Gods & Monsters

Cover Wars is a weekly showdown of two beautiful covers. The winner, as voted by you, goes on to face a new cover, and wins bragging rights. This is basically a fun way to discuss what we like in covers.

Dreams of Gods & Monsters managed the won against Dissonance! It was a surprisingly strong win, but will Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor manage such a win against Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano?


Both covers are extremely dark. Nearly Gone brings the chilling, creepy factor while Dreams of Gods & Monsters is a little more stylish an urban. Both fonts are also extremely distinctive. I love the '4' turned 'a' in Nearly Gone, as well as the contrast between solid text and gothic cursive in Dreams of Gods & Monsters. 

Both covers are worthy, but there is only one winner. Which will it be?

Let the Cover Wars begin!

  1. I chose Nearly Gone. I remember seeing this cover and just thinking "I have to have this" -- which didn't happen with Dreams of Gods & Monsters for me.

  2. Nearly Gone, because I'm not sure about Dreams of Gods & Monsters fits with the first two. Also, what's with the antlers?
