As you'd expect with a MMPB cover it's pretty commercial, but there's no doubt the art is very nice indeed. Brynd is suitably rugged (I never really pictured him like this, but it somehow seems right). I like it a lot more than the paperback cover for Nights of Villjamur, which I wasn't a big fan of.
Speculative Horizons is a UK-based blog dedicated to discovering the best in speculative fiction. Here you'll find book reviews, author interviews, artwork for upcoming releases, and commentary on all aspects of the genre.
A child of the eighties, I was raised on a steady diet of Ghostbusters, Thundercats and Transformers. I eventually discovered fantasy books via the awesome Fighting Fantasy series, and my love of fantasy led me to create Speculative Horizons, a popular book review blog I ran for three years. In 2010 I joined Orbit to work as an editorial assistant.
