The Cover Redesign for A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir

I’m a little behind on voicing my opinion on the cover reveal/redesign for A Reaper at the Gates. I have mixed feelings on the cover’s makeover and don’t get me wrong, I really like the new look. They kind of have an Assassin’s Creed feel. Though, if I had to choose between the new and the old it would be the original design. In my opinion it just it fit the story better. I know Sabaa wanted the makeover to showcase an empowered brown girl, which is awesome. But now my set will be miss matched and if I want the whole series to match then I will have to repurchase book 1 & 2, plus the task of getting them signed. I love Sabaa’s but at some point how many copies do I need.  Ok, I’m done with my first world problems rant……

PS I really do like the cover redesign, I just think I like the original better:) Also, here is the link to the article announcing this redesign.

    1. Wow, I had no idea. Though I have heard of publishing companies only buying the rights for only the first book and wait to see how well it sells before buying more. In the article (which I added a link to in the post) it was announced that there will be a forth book in the series too.
