Cover Beach #3

Cover Beach is a brand new feature by Stephanie from Books Paradise. I love covers and I must confess that I usually buy my books by the cover. Yes, I know it isn't as right as rain. Cover Beach is also a post about covers I love (regardless of I would buy it), sometimes about the difference between German and English covers and something along those lines.

'Cover Beach' will be post every Friday. To view all my Cover Beach posts click HERE.

At first I want to show you the two different Covers of an exceptionally book by Antonia Michaelis. This week I have reviewed her German book "Der Märchenerzähler" (translation: The Storyteller, Published: Jan 1st, 2012). One book, but two wonderful covers consistent with the story:

I think it is difficult to say I like one of them more than the other. But I know I would buy the English version, if I haven't the German one. You ask me why? This is an simple answer, the English cover is more lighter.

This week there are two covers I'm in love with. So let's have a look on them:

Blurb: Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever. She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists. Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen. As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's...

Blurb: Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine -despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she's far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can't control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it? Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she's reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy's motives aren't quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature-or something much more frightening? For fans of best-sellers like Before I Fall and If I Stay, this is a fascinating and heart-rending story about love and friendship and the fine line between life and death.

Also der Märchenerzähler im Vergleich finde ich, das deutsche Cover trifft sooo viel besser den Inhalt ... das rechte paßt überhaupt nicht finde ich...

Hmm das ist schwierig, denn beide Cover lassen viel Interpretationsfreiraum. Das englische sogar noch mehr als das deutsche Cover. ;)
Eine rote Rose (die Rose als Symbol für die Liebe, das Rot als Symbol für das Blut) vollkommen allein im gefrorenem Schnee (eine Liebe die keine Chance in dieser kaltblütigen Welt hat).
