CVC #5: The Maelstrom Vs Leviathan!

Welcome to the brand new segment I like to call CVC, short for Cover Versus Cover. Basically I give you two covers, a short analysis - as well as the authors name. Based on that- you'll vote for the cover you think best. The polls will close early Friday Morning. And on Friday afternoon you'll come back to this post to see your voting results. (they'll be posted on the bottom). 7 more CVC's to go people! our seasonal winner is not so far away!  This weeks contestants are The Tapestry and Leviathan!
1) First up, The Tapestry. The Tapestry is a perfect example of what a cover artist can do with the right colors, if you look straight at the book you can see how all the shades hues and colors mix together to create this wonderful cover. Another thing to take note; notice how the cover seems painted? or hand drawn at the very least? That's  the work of the cover artist, Cory Godbey. What more could you ask for?
2) Onto Leviathan! I chose Leviathan for this cover war because I like how the cover artist took gears and turned them into something pleasant to look at. Tons of tiny, small and big gears are working together (both in the book and in the cover) to create something new. The best part of the cover (for me) was how the artist played around with the grey, giving everything a kind of "old rust machinery" look. Very fitting.
Disclaimer: I do not own any of the book covers you see on this CVC post, However I am using them under the fair use act. Under fair Use I am allowed yo use these images as long as I am: Providing commentary (which I am) and or Providing criticism (which I am). Under fair use I must show where I have acquired these images from, you can find where I get these images from by clicking the image.


  1. I voted for Leviathan but I'm biased because I love that series! Have you read it? And I saw your comment on Shadow and Bone, its has a lot of romance in it but I hope you like it!

    1. I probably will!=)
      I've read the first book of leviathan, still waiting for the time to read the second book!
