What do you think of the new Pendragon covers?

The Merchant of Death was first published in 2002 . . . a lifetime ago.  So we thought it was time to spiff up the Pendragon series and create new covers.   Over the next year or so, all ten books will come out with the new design.  (Paperback only.  The hardcovers won’t change)

  1. I SEE THE CHEESE!!!!!!!!! says:

    i wasn’t talking to you. i was talking to that MozartGhost person.

  2. Mozartghost says:

    Well the first book is very funny, and that balances the having to learn what ther Tavelers are…which in my case took a while and therefore the Merchant of Death was hard for me to understand…

  3. Mozartghost says:

    i like them all like i said

  4. Mozartghost says:

    That was my sister accidentally writing as me….

  5. Holly says:

    yeah i like all the pendragon books. have u guys read the before the war series? it’s good!

  6. Lead Traveler says:

    yep i have. they’re awesome.

  7. hi says:

    i like the old covers MUCH better. when i go out to buy a pendragon book, i tend to look for the older editions for their cover.

  8. I SEE THE CHEESE!!!!!!!!! says:

    i do too. but i’m getting used to the new ones. i might be able to tolerate them.

  9. i will be a Traveler says:

    i’m nutral. however you spell that.

  10. Isabeau says:

    i like them both, but i still think that when you’re reading Pendragon for the first time you appreciate the older addition more because they show Bobby aging and a glimpse of the Territory that he’s on. i really liked them, but the new ones are neat too

  11. random person says:

    i like the old covers.

  12. bri says:

    i think i like the old covers better too.

  17. britt says:

    ……wow that was shocking….

  18. britt says:

    there just covers….. no need to start cussing.

  19. that one person girl trailer thing.....FLUME says:

    i dont like the new covers cuz then u dont get to see bobby growing up. they are realy pretty covers but i like to see how much bobby has grown since book one

    ……p.s. why do ppl have to ruin these chats with cussing its so rude and disrespectful >.<

  20. Nevva says:

    It’s very disrespectful.

    I do prefer the original covers but what I love about the new covers are the color schemes. I think they’re great. And I like how on most of them there is one object. On book 1, you have the ring, book 2, you have a compass (I believe it is), book 7, you have the chess piece.

    Very nice. Both sets of covers are wicked 🙂

  21. random person says:

    WHY DO PEOPLE SWEAR??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT DO THEY THINK IT WILL ACCOMPLISH???????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Ultimate fan 101 says:

    I know! Random Person your awesome!

  23. random person says:

    WHAT IS THE POINT OF SWEARING?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

  24. random person says:

    and thank you.

  25. bri says:

    i do not get swearing either. it’s just another word that people say for the replacement of another word. i don’t understand how the became bad words in the first place. though i do hate them and it’s horrible when people say them.

  26. Ulitimate fan 101 says:

    I know! It makes no sense! What will it prove! Nothing!

  27. bri says:


  28. britt says:

    i hate it when people cuss or swear.its just annoying my sister keeps replacing the cuss word wich is just as bad and so now i start doin it and its annyoing me

  29. skeptic says:

    yes we all know swearing is bad. ANYWAY i have a question. in the ninth book it says bobby dropped his ring right outside the flume on veelox, right when the dados grabbed him. HOWEVER, it doesnt say that he picked it up. yet he has it. what the crap dj?!?!
    P.S. love the books. 🙂

  30. britt says:

    really it didnt say that…hhmmm r u sure i dint say that

  31. britt says:

    it didnt (my bad)

  32. bri says:

    i don’t remember that part.

  33. Comet says:

    @ipexical flame

    that was totally unnessesary

  34. Mason Brown says:

    I think the pendragon movies will be great

  35. Lisa says:

    Same here. I’d go see them multiple times. It’d be awesome 😀

  36. liz says:

    I’m only on the 8th book right now, Quillan Games, so if the answer’s a spoiler, don’t tell me. But they keep mentioning that Saint Dane is a traveller. If that’s true, then I just have one huge question: Who is his acolyte?????????

  37. SpiritOfSolara says:

    Oooh, good question. I read all of the books, so i know the answer- He really doesnt need one. I mean, jeez he’s freakin’ Saint Dane- he shape-shifts and doesn’t need a change of clothing. However, you’ll soon figure out he has an unexpected ally… who happens to be revealed in that very book you’re reading.
    But Travelers are obviously not normal humans. So Saint Dane qualifies as a Traveler in the same way as all of the others…. which I can’t tell you. So keep reading! All will be revealed! The very nature of the Travelers is awsome and will blow you’re freakin’ mind. Enjoy!! XD

  38. bri says:

    well the person who is his ally, is also kind of his acolyte, cause they do whatever he says, most of the time.

  39. liz says:

    Woooooooow. I’m going to have tor read faster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Would it hurt to just tell me where Saint Dane is from?????????????? 😀

  40. liz says:

    Who would WANT to be his ally? I hope it’s not someone we already know!!

  41. Alder7 says:

    Hey DJ MacHale, I have a question for you. What made you want to make new covers for the Pendragon series? They’re really cool, though.

  42. britt says:

    uugghh i have the last one checked out 4 months and finnally im waiting on one person(that is taking forever)to finnsh.and the last percy jakson was like 12 people ahead of me when i first checked it out now its only7

  43. I SEE THE CHEESE!!!!!!!!! says:

    what?! i did not understnad one word of that!

  44. liz says:

    ok, so what territory is saint dane from??? im dying of curiosity!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. Caylia says:

    Saint Dane is not from a territory. He’s from Solara like all the other Travelers.

  46. I SEE THE CHEESE!!!!!!!!! says:

    yep. but could someone still tell me what britt meant?

  47. britt says:

    i have had the 10th pendragon book checked out at the public library for almost 4 months and the percy jackson book is also checked out but there are 7 people on hold ahead of me

  48. liz says:

    oh. ive only read up to the 8th book. so DONT tell me what solara is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. Lead Traveler says:

    adding to the conversation here.
