Welcome to Comparing Covers where I showcase a book title that has multiple covers; from first editions, re-releases, and international releases.
The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden was the final book in the Winternight Trilogy and I’m still thinking about it. Although the story is what makes the series good, the covers also shine. It’s a rare occasion where I like all of the editions of a book, even though there are not that many.
Now Moscow has been struck by disaster. Its people are searching for answers—and for someone to blame. Vasya finds herself alone, beset on all sides. The Grand Prince is in a rage, choosing allies that will lead him on a path to war and ruin. A wicked demon returns, stronger than ever and determined to spread chaos. Caught at the center of the conflict is Vasya, who finds the fate of two worlds resting on her shoulders. Her destiny uncertain, Vasya will uncover surprising truths about herself and her history as she desperately tries to save Russia, Morozko, and the magical world she treasures. But she may not be able to save them all.
Let me know which one you prefer!
If I really had to pick one, I’d go with the Serbian edition.
