Cover Reveal: THE IRON KNIGHT by Julie Kagawa

I am a huge fan of this series and Kagawa's writing. But I have to say I'm not loving this cover. I adore the blue and the font and scroll work. It ties into the other covers and I'm a fan. 

It's the guy. 

I just don't find him that attractive. He's too pretty for my tastes. It's supposed to be Ash. And I adore Ash but this model is too much of a pretty boy for me. I like my guys rugged, not pretty. Have I said "pretty" enough? Guess not since I just said it again in case I didn't make my 'pretty' point. Just my personal 'pretty'...I mean petty preference. 

He's not pretty
Okay, I'm 'pretty' much done. What's wrong with me? I'm 'pretty' obsessed with 'pretty.' I've got myself in a 'pretty' pickle now. 

What's your opinion?

But as I mentioned, I love this series and I will be reading THE IRON KNIGHT (Oct '11) as soon as I can get my hands on it!

And FYI - You can get the e-book novella SUMMER CROSSING free from Harlequin Teen. It's from Puck's point of view. 
A Midsummer's Nightmare?Robin Goodfellow. Puck. Summer Court prankster, King Oberon's right hand, bane of many a faery queen's existence—and secret friend to Prince Ash of the Winter Court. Until one girl's death came between them, and another girl stole both their hearts.
Now Ash has granted one favor too many and someone's come to collect, forcing the prince to a place he cannot go without Puck's help—into the heart of the Summer Court. And Puck faces the ultimate choice—betray Ash and possibly win the girl they both love, or help his former friend turned bitter enemy pull off a deception that no true faery prankster could possibly resist.

I actually haven't read this series yet, but I don't really care for the cover of The Iron Knight...the shade of blue is nice though.
The cover doesn't work for me because I'm kind of tired of covers featuring only half a face. :)

The cover is so pretty! I love the color especially. I have the previous books in the series, but haven't read them yet. I plan to read them this summer.

I read and loved the series can't wait until Iron Knight is out, the ending to Iron Queen was a bit of a cliffhanger. I read the novella this morning it was great!

Small Review said...

Thank you! I totally agree with you about the cover. I love the color and the swirls and everything except the guy. He's too rounded and soft-featured. I'm with you. I wanted him more rugged looking and less pretty boy. He's so not my Ash. :(

Lola said...

I really like the cover. I'm Really looking forward this one! :)

Tales of Whimsy said...

O I like him and his eyes.
I like that he's not drop dead hot.

I've only read the first book but I sort of pictured Ash with a darker look.

Missie, The Unread Reader said...

If you got something against people that are too pretty then you probably wouldn't like me. :(


I'm a loon. Clearly.

I like the cover, but I agree. I needed a rugged looking, fierce warrior to be Ash.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I'm so with you. That is not Ash. In fact put some red hair on him and I might buy him as Puck. Nah... not even Puck. Still, I'd be squeeing like a total fan girl if I got it early. ;)

Golden Eagle said...

I completely agree with you! That's not really how I pictured him--the eyes are okay, and the hair's the right color, but the face doesn't say "Ash".
