Comparing Covers #11: Green Rider by Kristen Britain

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

Welcome to Comparing Covers where I will showcase a book title that has multiple covers; from first editions, re-releases, and international releases.

It’s been a long while since I read Green Rider by Kristen Britain, but I still remember it. It came out in 2000 and I was immediately drawn to the cover and then the blurb, of course. It had a dark fantasy edge to it with magic and a smidgen of romance. This is still an on-going series that I lost touch with at book 4, just because the author started killing characters willy-nilly and it somehow lost its charm. However, I would re-read book one in a heart beat and who knows maybe I can go back and re-read the series up to 4 and give it another try. There are 6 books so far in the series. I saw the latest one at the bookstore, but passed on it because of my disappointment in the series.

Besides the original cover which gives me nostalgia and is my favorite, I have to say that second on my list would have to be the French version.

Oh man, this is a hard one to choose! I usually agree with your favorite, but I ended up going with the UK version. I do like the US and French ones though, and I like the red and black of the German!

I really like the Turkish cover!

Oh wow! They’re all so different. I think the French version is my favorite. And ugh at the willy nilly killing. That would lose it’s charm for sure.

Ugh, it’s hard to stay invested in a series when favorite characters (or just main characters in general) are killed off. It can change the feel of the series a lot. It was hard to pick a favorite cover because there are a couple that I like but I went with the UK version.
