Lord Of Silence Cover

Here’s a first look at the cover for Lord of Silence, my fantasy novel coming from Solaris on August 3.


It’s by John Picacio, who has also completed the art for the US editions of the Age of Misrule sequence. Solaris describe it as “a rip-roaring, carcass-surfing (yes,really!) fantasy” which definitely captures the flavour. The blurb: “Vidar is a man tormented – by a lost memory and a vampiric jewel that demands the life energy of others. Now, with a killer loose within his home city, Vidar must solve a three thousand year old religious mystery to unlock the terrifying secrets of his own past.”

You can pre-order the UK version from Amazon here or from your favourite bricks and mortar bookshop.

  1. Holy Moses Mark, that looks incredible! As soon as it’s out it’ll be on my TBR list, no doubt! You’ve got some incredible talent doing covers for you. :-) And thanks for adding me to the blogroll! :-)

  2. Yep, I’ve been very lucky on the cover front. Mainly because I shout and throw things till I get what I want. I learnt that when I was five. Lesson for life.

  3. I like. It’s odd though the percentage of lefthanders in covers given that they are outnumbered.

    To be honest though, I think the title of the book is better than the cover, it engages the brain and fills me with anticipation.

    Out of interest if I buy a book through your site do you get a better cut? If you do ythen I’m happy to buy here.

    All the best


  4. Well now, I’m totally in lust! Besides the fact that YOU wrote it, I have to own for the cover…or maybe own two – one to read and one to keep pristine.
