This December, The Ranting Dragon is trying something new: an epic cover battle! We will pitch sixty of the best covers of the year against each other—half of these selected by our team, the other half submitted by you—and our readers get to decide which of them wins the ultimate title of best cover of 2012. Any book released in 2012 is eligible—all it needs is a gorgeous cover!
This is the last battle of the first phase. Thank you all so much for all the covers you have submitted and all the votes you have cast. We have sixty wonderful covers, and the voting is in full swing. You can still vote in any of the five battles here, here, here, and here.
