A round of covers

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

It's time for another round of covers.


First up is the new covers for the first two novels of Mark Charan Newton, Nights of Villjamur and City of Ruin. The author posted the last two entry from Tor UK that will complete the new style for all four books. Hum... not sure I like that depiction of Brynd... although the cover is not bad as a whole, I think that like the others, the face looks weird... in all four it looks like it was inserted after the illustration was done instead of being part of it.

And the other two books that were already unveiled:

And five others Nights of Villjamur covers.  The best one in my opinion still being the original UK cover (the second one on the pic):


Next, Adian at A Dribble of Ink posted the 'tentative' cover for Brent Weeks second novel in his Lightbringer series, The Blinding Knife. I'm not a big fan... I hope the final illustration can improve from this.

And here you have the two covers for the first book, The Black Prism and here again, I prefer the original one (on the right):


Finally, I know it had the effect of a hurricane on the SFF blogs last week when it was unveiled but here is the US cover for Joe Abercrombie's upcoming novel, A Red Country.  It's in the same line as the US covers for Best Served Cold and The Heroes.  Even though it's a good work, I really think the UK covers of Abercrombie's books are better. Although these Orbit covers would do well for the movie poster of the book!

the effect was in the spoiler in this cover, the cover itself is not very good.

the best covers of Abercombie's books are certainly The First Law covers with Logen, Glokta and Jezal.
