Welcome to Comparing Covers where I will showcase a book title that has multiple covers; from first editions, re-releases, and international releases.
Today, on Comparing Covers, I bring you: Travel Glasses by Chess Desalis. An interesting sounding book with an eye catching cover. I was actually kind of puzzled about the two covers that I found. Naturally with glasses in the title you need to incorporate that into the cover.
While the two covers that I’m featuring today, have the glasses, they are two totally different covers. The one with the girl and the green dress is gorgeous, but kind of distracting. The other one focuses on glasses, but is totally dark. Usually romance covers have the girls in dresses, but it’s kind of sending mixed messages.
So, this one is kind of hard for me to choose, but with overall attractiveness, I’m going with Version 1.
Calla Winston’s mobile devices sit in a corner of her room, covered in dust. Weeks ago, she shared photos and laughs with her best online friend. Now, after having felt the sting of betrayal, she prefers being hidden and friendless. She equates privacy with security and technology with pain.
Then she meets Valcas, an otherworldly time traveler who traverses time and space with a pair of altered sunglasses. When an ethereal being knocks Calla to the ground near her family’s lakeside cottage, Valcas uses the Travel Glasses to help her escape. He offers his further protection in exchange for a promise. Intrigued by Valcas and the possibility of time travel, Calla accepts. That is until she learns that his search for her was no mere coincidence.
Calla sets off on her own, taking the Travel Glasses with her. Torn between searching for her estranged father and reuniting with the rest of her family, she tracks down the inventor of the Travel Glasses in hopes of discovering more about Valcas’ past and motivations. The Travel Glasses take Calla’s mistrust of technology to all new levels. But without them, she’ll never make it back home. With Valcas hot on her trail, Calla hopes to find what she’s looking for before he catches up.
