The understated elegance of these covers completely amazed me when I first saw them. Besides linking up the covers through the door, door knocker and keyhole, the typography completes the design of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy. I love how classy the letters look. They are decorative but don’t lead to overly busy covers.
My favourite cover of the lot is Dreams of Gods and Monsters, so I’m glad I waited for this edition to be published. This one was only released a couple of weeks ago. The paperback that was available from Hodder & Stoughton before that was much bigger and only featured birds. Since I’m a stickler for matching covers, I refused to buy it. Well, waiting paid off. I happily own the covers of the trilogy that I love.
Now I only need to finally read the books. Yes, I have yet to meet Karou. I will soon though, I promise! Daughter of Smoke and Bone is parked on my priority TBR shelf.
