Evidence that you can have a figure on the cover of a book without it being dull and derivative:
I really like this cover, I think it's striking and beautifully done. I also like the fact that the focus is not just on the figure, but on the lions as well. Excellent stuff. Having checked out the blurb for this particular series, I think I might have to give it a go - sounds interesting.
