I really love the US cover for Spellbound. I mean, for a Fantasy nerd like me, what’s not to like about creamy colours, Todd Lockwood and a Dragon? Okay, maybe that font still sucks, but, hey, it’s a small complaint. In comparison, this UK cover for Spellbound is reserved and, well… kinda boring. The runes are at least an attempt to convey the language-based magic system in Charlton’s novels, but a cryptic diamond makes no promises to the reader about the excitement within.
