Cover reveal pour Tower of Dawn

Tower of Dawn, Throne of Glass - Le Book CornerAprès des mois d’attente, et la révélation en Avril du titre, Tower of Down, sixième livre de la série Throne of Glass a enfin une couverture. Mais le moins que l’on puisse dire c’est qu’elle ne plaît pas à tout le monde.En effet, le couverture pour la série on un style très reconnaissables, avec Celeana au centre. Ce sixième tome se concentrant sur Chaol et son arc narratif les fans, dont je fais partie, attendait une couverture semblable aux autres couvertures de la série, mais avec Chaol au centre. Malheureusement, ce n’est pas la direction artistique prise par les équipes chez Bloomsbury (voir photo ci-contre).

Je trouve personnellement cette couverture très jolie mais pas du tout adaptée à ce roman. Je n’ai pas l’impression de voir le tome six de l’une de mes sagas livresques préférées. Si ce livre était encore considéré comme une petite novella (comme ce fût le cas au départ), la couverture ne me poserait pas de problème. Mais l’auteure a souvent déclarer que c’était véritablement le tome six de la série et il méritait donc une meilleure couverture. Je vous laisse découvrir deux version réalisé par des fans pleins de talent que j’aime largement plus que la véritable couverture.


That’s all for the reading news for this month of June 2017. See you next month for more exciting reveals and announcements.
