I like the red titled one. It stands out better against the background and the font is more appropriate.

The red is better, I agree.

The red for me, as well. It caught my eye first.

The red gives more suspense and thriller, the blue gives more "Frozen" feel.

Definitely the red. The font and size choice seems to be a better fit too!

Guess I'm in the minority, but I actually like the first better. I think it's just that I like that particular font and overall graphic design - it feels a tad more professional. The red font doesn't look like it matches anything else on the cover to me. Just my two cents, of course. Both covers are quite lovely, and I really like the artwork. :smile:

Both are really good, but I like the first one just that little bit more. The colour and font of the words flow well with the hues of the picture and aren't trying 'too hard' to stand out. :)

I like the second one. The overall color of the picture is blue, but it has little hints of red (her lips) and black (her hair) interspersed through out and I feel like the red and black text draws out those colors and is therefore more pleasing to my eyes. It makes me appreciate the details more.

I like the first one better. Looks really good to my eye and seems to fit the genre. Disciple looks odd on the red one to me. Looks like a horror novel.
