Here is the second of the covers from artist John Picacio for the US publication of the Age of Misrule sequence, this time for Darkest Hour. Once again, please note this is a WORK IN PROGRESS, and the art will evolve before publication in June 2009. I’m very pleased with what John and my editor Lou Anders have achieved here. The covers really capture the awe and sense of scale I tried to place at the heart of the books.
Probably be a while before I post the cover to Always Forever as that one is in very early stages of development (the one that will appear on amazon.com in the short term is essentially a place-holder).
US readers can pre-order Darkest Hour here.
