Die for Me, Paris vs Hades

I am excited about the book Die for Me by Amy Plum and I have finally decided (after much mental ping-pong) that my favourite cover of all the covers that have ever been avaliable is the old US one.
I think that the whole River Styx theme suits it more than the scene of the main character looking over Paris. I also think that the dark colours add to the effect of the whole 'die for me' title. The blue dress and the red boat also makes the girl in the centre stand out. Anyway, that's just my opinion. What do you think??

The US now has a new cover, as seen below on the left, but I still preffer the old one... - Why did they ever get rid of it?? -

NEW US COVER                                                                             UK/AUS COVER

:( Sorry to burst your bubble but the US cover that you have is actually not available. It was the original cover but they changed it at the last minute to the one you have for UK/Aust. The UK/Aust one is the same except that the title font is more swirly. You can read all about it here: http://www.amyplumbooks.com/2011/03/die-for-mes-new-us-cover/

I originally really liked the dark blue cover but then I saw the new cover and fell in love with it. That said, I think the swirly writing on the UK/Aust cover is a little bit overkill so I like the new US cover.

Haha I've become obsessed with these covers hence my long message! Great seeing you today :)
