Abercrombie's The Heroes cover art and blurb

Monday, March 29, 2010

It's going to be everywhere on the blogosphere but you can't pass this one. Joe Abercrombie's star is shining more than ever. To help with the hype, Orion books posted the cover art and blurb today (here). Steve Stone is the artist behind the cover. All we know so far is that it will be released next year and will be set in the northern part of the world of The First Law with new characters and good old favorites.

Here you go :

War: where the blood and dirt of the battlefield hide the dark deeds committed in the name of glory. THE HEROES is about violence and ambition, gruesome deaths and betrayals; and the brutal truth that no plan survives contact with enemy. The characters are the stars, as ever, and the message is dark: when it comes to war, there are no heroes…


Curnden Craw: a ruthless fighter who wants nothing more than to see his crew survive.

Prince Calder: a liar and a coward, he will regain his crown by any means necessary.

Bremer dan Gorst: a master swordsman, a failed bodyguard, his honor will be restored—in the blood of his enemies.

Over three days, their fates will be sealed.
