Jon and Simon kindly gave me permission to post the artwork for you all to see, so behold!
I really like the Venetian influence - the masks are very reminiscent of those you see worn by revellers in Venice during the carnivale. This is the work of the same artist that provided the covers for the first two novels, though as you can see this design differs from the previous covers in that there's figures featured here (Locke and Sabetha, I think) and subsequently there's more of a focus. I like the colour scheme as well, the rather ominous reds and blacks work rather well.
While we're at it, here's the very rudimentary blurb (warning: contains minor spoilers for the previous novel)
After their adventures on the high seas, Locke and Jean are brought back to earth with a thump. Jean is mourning the loss of his lover and Locke must live with the fallout of crossing the all-powerful magical assassins the Bonds Magi. It is a fall-out that will pit both men against Locke's own long lost love. Sabetha is Locke's childhood sweetheart, the love of Locke's life and now it is time for them to meet again. Employed on different sides of a vicious dispute between factions of the Bonds Sabetha has just one goal - to destroy Locke for ever. The Gentleman Bastard sequence has become a literary sensation in fantasy circles and now, with the third book, Scott Lynch is set to seal that success.So...opinions on the cover?
