Cover Art – Dirk & Steele Series by Marjorie Liu

A while ago Marjorie Liu switched publishers for her terrific action thriller paranormal (it deserves lots of adjectives) series Dirk & Steele and Avon is reissuing the books with new covers. Marjorie revealed the cover for Red Heart of Jade, the third book on her blog today and I thought I would take the opportunity to recap the reissues to date and compare them to the originals.

Which do you prefer? Are you a fan of the series?

  1. I own all three books, and have read each several times. I must say that the new covers capture the essence of the stories better than the originals...

  2. I like the new covers best. They're sort of more... elegant ~_^

  3. Susan I read the original editions too as they came out and I think I am up to book 7 but am now behind. I like both sets. I am sure Marjorie is proud of both.

    Juliana either way she certainly has a nice reissue...

  4. I'm a big fan of the series but am quite behind; I've read only the first 3 books.

    I'm partial to the original covers, though.

    Thanks,
