(Several people have told me I should read this series. What do y'all think?)

(I mean, the title mentions a sword, so I guess this was to be expected.)

20613470
(Literally look at any book in the Throne of Glass series.)

17406847
(Not gonna lie, this one feels like a Graceling knock-off.)

23569428
(There's even some blood.)

16069030
(This cover is the subtlest of the trilogy, but Kestrel holds a dagger.)

The good news is, I didn't get any paper cuts while writing this post. Anyways, what are your thoughts on this cover trend?
