I love Dash and Lily, but my vote goes to Graffiti Moon - it's so striking!

I love the first two covers but my vote goes to Dash and Lily on the account that it kicks the Dash and Lily US cover's ass BIG TIME! :)

I really love the amazingly warm colors for The Innocents but my vote goes to Wolfborn. The bright red and overall powerful simplicity of it all makes it so super eye-catching!
