Cover Wars: An Ember in the Ashes vs. Gates of Thread and Stone

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.

Gates of Thread and Stone has come out victorious yet again. This week it's facing An Ember in the Ashes by Sara A. Tahir.

The shining font seems to be a new in thing in the cover art world. Both covers feature a stunning, shiny font colour that helps the title pop and sets the books ahead of their classic font competitors.

An Ember in the Ashes is a simple cover with some extravagant architecture. I love having a peak at the setting of a novel and this one is very enticing.

As always, you have a week to vote!
