Friday Face Off: Person of Cloth

This is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, but currently run by Lynn’s Book Blog.

“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”

This weeks theme:  A cover featuring a monk/priest/person of the cloth

My Choice:  His Fair Assassin Series

This was actually a super hard topic! My first thought was Nevernight because Mia joins the Red “Church” but I think I have done it before. Next I thought of Robin Hood but I couldn’t find a cover with Friar tuck.  Next was The Scarlet Letter but again, I couldn’t find a cover with the reverend.  I finally decided on His Fair Assassin Series.  I couldn’t pick which book in the series I wanted to do so I will feature all three!

They may not look like people of the cloth, but they are part of a covenant of assassins that serve the god of death.  I love this series!


Houghton Mifflin:

Andersen Press:

Recorded Books:


HMH Books for Young Readers:

Thai Editions:

Turkish Editions:

Polish Editions:

Italian Editions:

Russian Editions:

I have never been particular picky about matching series in the book I own, but it seems super odd to me that there are so many missing editions.  I would love to see the 1st and 3rd book in the same style as the Russian Edition!!

Least Favorites:


So I really like the font of the first one, but I don’t like the little swirls they added! And I really like the last one, but there is only one so I can’t really judge it as a series!


Which is your favorite? Do you agree with my choice? Let me know in the comments!!
