Abercrombie's Red Country UK cover

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Joe posted the cover for the UK edition of Red Country (it seems that the tile finally let go of the 'A').  The same artists behind the work for the cover of his previous novel, Heroes are behind it.  The book will be released on October 18th in the UK and on the 23rd in the US.  I like it!



And the blurb:


“They burned her home. 
They stole her brother and sister. 
But vengeance is following. 
Shy South hoped to bury her bloody past and ride away smiling, but she’ll have to sharpen up some bad old ways to get her family back, and she’s not a woman to flinch from what needs doing.  She sets off in pursuit with only a pair of oxen and her cowardly old stepfather Lamb for company.  But it turns out Lamb’s buried a bloody past of his own, and out in the lawless Far Country, the past never stays buried. 
Their journey will take them across the barren plains to a frontier town gripped by gold fever, through feud, duel and massacre, high into the unmapped mountains to a reckoning with the Ghosts.  Even worse, it will force them into alliance with Nicomo Cosca, infamous soldier of fortune, and his feckless lawyer Temple, two men no one should ever have to trust…”

These covers are amazing. I think they've pretty much nailed the 'awesome cover' formula for Abercrombie's books.
