No one put up the individual covers so I guess I shall!!
*I actually like them a lot. I’ve never been a huge fan of Percival’s art of… anything that isn’t a skeleton, so it’s nice to see something I went “oh!! That’s not bad!” Also anything is better than the old US paperbacks. Anything.
*For those who read my old cover rankings, once all 9 of these are out, I’ll do posts for the rest of the series, as I now have 5 versions to compare!
*lmao the first cover has clovers on the lampposts so you know it’s Ireland
*i feel like I understand how people with synesthesia feel because PWF is green and TFO is purple in my mind
* there seems to be a “must have a girl” rule here, (even throwing tanith in…. which imo pwf isn’t really a “tanith” book but it introduces brs so sure, lol.)
*this is fascinating to me bc Valkyrie isn’t even on most of the fucking UK hardcovers (😡😡😡). I think Katniss, Rey, and Wonder Woman have shown publishers that girls are marketable and boys will read books with female protagonists, and more than that: GIRLS ARE AND HAVE FOR A LONG TIME THE MAIN READER DEMOGRAPHIC!!!!!
*we could see the same thing of the newest uk paperbacks, with val getting older and taller. (except hopefully done more competently. cough.)
*book 1 was renamed scepter of the ancients the last two times the series was rebooted in the US. (2009, 2011) But not this time!
