Welcome to Comparing Covers where I will showcase a book title that has multiple covers; from first editions, re-releases, and international releases.
Today, I wanted to focus on the two covers for Ensnared. They both look totally different, that I wanted to see what you thought about them. If you haven’t read this story yet, it’s a Beauty and the Beast variation set in a futuristic environment. I liked the cover for the paperback version, it might actually be a bit more true to the story. Especially with the circuit board pattern in the background.
Honestly, besides the rose on the paperback cover, I would not be able to tell what kind of story Ensnared would be by just glancing at it. Maybe if they put a rose on the e-book cover….? But then again, rose means something totally different in this story, so I’m in a conundrum.
Separately, I do like both covers, but based on the story, I think I’ll go with the paperback version.
See my review of Ensnared here.
Alainn’s father is not a bad man. He’s a genius and an inventor. When he’s hired to create the robot Rose, Alainn knows taking the money is a mistake.
Rose acts like a human. She looks exactly like Alainn. But, something in her comes out wrong.
To save her father from a five year prison sentence, Alainn takes Rose’s place. She says goodbye to the sun and goes to live in a tower no human is allowed to enter. She becomes the prisoner of a man no human is allowed to see.
Believing that a life of servitude lies ahead, Alainn finds a very different fate awaits her in the company of the strange, scarred recluse.
Which cover did you vote for and why?
