A few weeks ago, I posted the beautiful cover art for the North American edition of David Anthony Durham‘s The Other Lands, sequel to his successful Acacia: The War with the Mein, and now I’ve got a look at the UK edition.
It’s a known fact that UK covers are generally miles beyond their NA counterpart in terms of quality, but I’d say this is one exception to the rule. I appreciate the granduer of the NA cover, which suggests how mysterious and epic these ‘Other Lands’ are, whereas the UK cover has a nice sense of adventure and tension, but seems to lack focus. Still, either way, Durham’s got to be pretty happy with how the covers of his novels have been handled.
On top of this, Durham is hosting a giveaway for an ARC of The Other Lands. I’ll certainly be entering!
