I was very picky about the covers I got for these books. I wanted to avoid the whole race debacle surrounding Magic Under Glass – so bought the UK cover. I thought the US version of Knife (which is called Faery Rebels in the US) looked like it was designed for a three-year-old – so, again, bought the UK cover. And I was annoyed that the UK publisher completely changed the cover and title of Hearts at Stake (called My Love Lies Bleeding in the UK) – so I bought the US cover! *sighs*
But what was amazing was I was able to pick-and-choose from these covers in London bookstores! One luxury I think US readers don’t quite have… !
