Comparing Covers #27: Dark Prince by Christine Feehan

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.


This weeks’ Comparing Covers is dedicated to my mom. She’s a huge Christine Feehan fan and has all of her books. I haven’t read any of her books yet, much to my mother’s chagrin, but I do like the covers, if that helps. ๐Ÿ™‚


Today, we’re looking at the covers for Dark Prince. I thought there were some interesting ones to compare and I definitely want to hear your opinions on them.


I don’t really have an absolute favorite, but overall I do like the US-1 version the best. It’s better than the somewhat cheesy looking “throwback” covers that they released. Now, I have nothing against the retro style covers, but for this book, the theme just did not fit in with those. And I seriously LOL’d on the cape factor.


Something to note: The one that I’m labeling US-1 is actually the cover for the extended version of the book.




Carpathians are an immortal race of beings with animal instincts. Every Carpathian male is drawn to his life mate: a Carpathian or human female able to provide the light to his darkness. Without her, the beast within slowly consumes the man until turning vampire is the only option.’ Raven Whitney is a psychic who has used her gift to help the police track down a serial killer. Now she is determined to escape the glare of recent publicity for the peace and quiet of the Carpathian Mountains. Prince Mikhail Dubrinsky is the leader of his people but, as his ancient Carpathian race grows ever closer to extinction, he is close to giving in to the heavy weight of loneliness and despair. From the moment their minds touch, Raven and Mikhail form a connection. But there are those who incorrectly view all Carpathians as vampires, and are determined to give their extinction a helping hand.

I actually really like how the first cover looks. Don’t often read romances, but I would be more inclined to read more like the US 1 and the French cover with the mysterious vibes

Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight

I’m actually not a fan of retro romance covers. I also don’t really like photos of a person’s face on covers. So I had to go with the French one! It also has the most paranormal vibe.


Aww, that is so sweet that you dedicated this to your mom. #MomGoals. Now the covers, US1 or French for me. The other two do not give me the dark vibe and they are kind of cheesy too.

I’m not really a fan of any of them :\


I love the US1 cover, it gives me a good feel for the story. The US2 has a historical feel. The Germany and French covers look like homemade indie covers. WTH?

US 1 was my vote. I love this series! I loved this book and can’t recommend this series enough.

Carole @ Carole's Random Life in Books

The US2 and German covers just are not good. I am really surprised that the newer cover is the throwback style. I have to agree with you about that cape.
