Still prefer the original covers... part just familiarity, part just it doesn't ring "Flamel Series" to me.
Not sure I'm a fan of the fonts - am hugely behind the US covers, these look kinda odd almost.

It's nice, but not sure if I'd like to have it.

I like it, though I agree with what others have said, it gives the books a bit of a different feel. But will look nice sitting on the shelf with the others~

It's a good cover but I prefer the US covers- they just felt more Flamel like but this might be to do with me associating those covers with the series. But I do think that the new cover is eye catching and it might get more people into the series. Good thing I ordered mine from the US

So it said somewhere that the other books would be rereleased like that too...what will they look like?

I agree with the general reaction of other members...The cover is OK...but I prefer the (US) original cover it has some more umph to me...Maybe we should ask the non-fans/ those that don't know the series yet which of the two cover art they like better? just an idea...

We have put a poll up on just that principle on the Portal if you'd like to vote

That would be interesting... some sort of survey or experiment?

Honestly, if I had never heard of the series before and saw one of these covers, I would likely be more interested in the series and purchasing the book if it was the original cover rather than this revised one. It just looks too much like all the other books that would probably be around it.

I'd like it if that was the style that the whole series was done in, however I get really annoyed when the covers of all books in a series don't match. Overall I like the North American covers better.

The plan is that the first 3 will be reissued in similar style covers.

Well, yes Mr Scott i saw the Sorceress' cover, and really loved it!! Was surprised to see it though.

Yup I saw it and voted already...but my suggestion was for the the ones that don't know the series...

American covers are still available in the UK even through high street bookshops, my Waterstones had the Warlock in its US cover by the 28th May. I love my Waterstones.

I think all the covers, though obviously different, have the same feel to them. For the UK covers it shows different clues than the US covers. For me, I prefer the US covers, simply because I think they show more clues as to what is going to be in the book. But again, I love both covers

I know I am a few years late but I love it. It would make for a very nice collectible for someone.
