After stumbling across a black and white version of the cover for J.V. Jones’s upcoming Watcher of the Dead, the fourth volume in her A Sword of Shadows series, I shot her a line on twitter to see if she could send me the full colour version. And, well… here it is!
Pretty typical Fantasy art, but the quality of the artwork and the fonts is nice. I am rather terrified of the size of that fellow’s arm, though. But I guess to heft a sword like that, you have to be physically well-endowed in the, erm… upper body area. Despite not being totally enamoured with Jones’s early work, A Sword of Shadows is something I still have to give a serious shot.
