When judging a book by its cover pays off

All of which got me thinking of my (current) favourite book cover:

  1. This cover reflects he novel a bit better than the cover on my copy. It includes male and female figures, representing the two duellists/potential romantic couple. Goes with the marketing attempt to promote the book as a cross between Twilight and Harry Potter. The novel, which is excellent, better fits into Neil Gaiman’s fantasy style than marketers’ effort to portray the novel as Romantic fantasy.
