If you know me at all, you know that I have a favorite author: Auryn Hadley. You can find her Amazon account here. I follow her on Facebook, and she’s charming and funny, and I got my mom into reading her as well.
She wrote one of my favorite series of all time: Rise of the Iliri, and I loved the covers of these books. However, these covers aren’t really helping her sales – they say ‘aliens’ and ‘sci fi’ when the books are basically military high fantasy (on a different world).
So she’s re-branding her series with new covers.
I had the first three with the old covers. The new covers are abstract – instead of an image of the main character, they have words in their language’s script, which, while pretty, would NOT match what I have.
She did give us a head’s up though, and I bought them all before she could change them over.
Here’s the collection:
The second book, Instinctual, has the original covers without the slight modifications she did later to make them look better.
But I have them all now! I don’t usually care one way or another about the covers of books, but these were so different that it was bugging me. I also don’t usually buy physical copies of a book when I’ve already read it. But I want her to keep writing SO BAD, so I read as an e-book and then buy a paper copy.
They’re so pretty, I just want to peeeeet them… and please ignore the tomato sauce I got on book one….
