Comparing Covers #38: Daughter of the Blood

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

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


There’s always something that speaks to me when I see old covers of Fantasy books. Maybe it’s because the love for Fantasy started with the Green Rider series by Kristen Britain. So, when I saw the cover for Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop, I just couldn’t resist. It also put a new author on my radar as well.


I found two different US editions and a few (questionable looking) international editions. Let’s check them out and place your vote for your favorite below!


Book Blurb:


The Dark Kingdom is preparing itself for the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy–the arrival of a new Queen, a Witch who will wield more power than even the High Lord of Hell himself. But this new ruler is young, and very susceptible to influence and corruption; whoever controls her controls the Darkness. And now, three sworn enemies begin a ruthless game of politics and intrigue, magic and betrayal, and the destiny of an entire world is at stake.


US Editions

Mass Market Paperback vs. Kindle Edition

Daughter of the Blood 1998


daughter of the blood kindle edition














International Editions
daughter of the blood portuguese edition


Daughter of the blood german edition












My favorite would have to be the paperback version. What the heck is going on with that German cover? Totally weird.


I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

I love these comparing covers posts! The US covers win this one for me. I think the black jewel on the cover makes it.

Thanks for sharing! 🙂


The German one is really weird! I like both the US versions, but I like the Kindle one best!

I actually like the German one best.


That German cover is weird! I have no idea what’s going on there! I think I like the Portuguese one the best, maybe. The US editions aren’t doing much for me?
