Brent Weeks's The Black Prism cover art and blurb

Monday, March 1, 2010

The cover art for the next novel from the author or The Night Angel trilogy was unveiled today. Brent Weeks new series will be a trilogy set in a brand new world with an original magic system. A blurb of the new book was posted on amazon several months ago and was denied by Mr. Weeks as being wrong. A possible cover art also leaked at the same time (Brent post on his site here). The first cover art is at the end of this post.

This time, it comes directly from Orbit and I think that it looks much better. The cover art was done by Richard Jones (more here) and the design is by Lauren Panepinto who gave us this as a description of the book :

Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals.

But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he’s willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.
