Legend of Eli Monpress omnibus cover

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

The Legend of Eli Monpress is the upcoming omnibus from Orbit gathering the novels The Spirit Thief, The Spirit Rebellion and The Spirit Eater by Rachel Aaron. Even though I wasn't aware of this author, this post on Orbit website about the cover creation of the book by Sam Weber attracted my attention (under the direction of Lauren Panepinto).

Sam Weber is the artist behind the illustrations covering among others the Mistborn trilogy, The Shadow Rising ebook edition and Ender's Game for Tor. Great artist.

Although I'm now in awe looking at the face of Eli on the cover, it still is a nice work in my opinion. Anyone has gone through the series? With a cover quote saying : "Fans of Scott Lynch's Lies of Locke Lamora will be thrilled with Eli Monpress.", I ought to be at least a bit intrigued.

I like these. I love the mutedness and quirkiness (particularly of the one with the man on the statue). I've never heard of these books but I think I'll look out for them and try one.
