Cover Reveal: The Iron Fey Books

The Iron Legends: Winter's Passage\Summer's Crossing\Iron's Prophecy Yesterday, Julie Kagawa released the cover images on her blog of two new books! Now, if you've read the Iron Fey series and are a fan, you will love this! If you haven't read them yet, I would suggest you catch up. Her new book, The Iron Legends is a compilation of three novellas; "Winter's Passage", "Summer's Crossing", and a new novella. The already released novellas were only on e-book format, but now us old-fashioned readers can enjoy them too!  (Starting in August, of course.) Cover wise, I'm not a fan of it. First thing that bothers me? Puck. Where's his famous flaming hair!? That's like his trademark! (I also don't imagine him that way and don't find the model for him attractive in the slightest.) As for Ash, he's alright, but what the heck is he looking at? As for Meghan, she's okay. I imagined her more elvish looking, like how Kagawa describes her when she's in the Fey's realm. Oh well. Back to the more important things; content. What else might this book contain? Oh, I don't know. Perhaps the first chapter of her soon-to-be-released book, The Lost Prince?!

The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #1)So, Meghan and Ash and (lovely) Puck have had their run. Now, even though it's in the same world, it's time for an overlooked character to shine. Ethan Chase, Meghan's little brother, is stepping out of his big sis's shadow and becoming...well, just look at that cover. Isn't is beautiful!? Who thought that little boy would grow into that!?  While the graphics are a little distracting and not the best, I like this cover. I'm more likely to pick this book up than the other. (Though parents might be apt to choose Legends because of the more skin that is covered.) I'm still going to buy both though, because Julie Kagawa is just simply amazing. What do you think? Are the covers worthy enough of Kagawa's awesome? Do you agree with who they chose for the famous trio?
