The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

As the release of Brandon Sanderson’s The Way of Kings draws near, publisher Tor Books continues to release tantalizing glimpses at the novel. To go along with the Prologue through Chapter Six, Tor has just released Chapters Nine and Eleven (along with some great interior artwork) to members of their website. If you haven’t signed up yet, it’s free, only takes a moment, and is absolutely worth doing.

The Inheritance by Robin Hobb (UK Edition)

It’s, uhh… catastic? I dunno. I wasn’t a fan of the style when there were Dragons involved, and I’m not really any more keen on it now. Just seems like a strange marketing decision. I do appreciate the consistency in style, though. Long gone are the days of wonderful John Howe art gracing the covers of Hobb’s work.

That said, though it’s an odd fit for this book cover, artist Jackie Morris does have a wonderful portfolio of art, and it’s absolutely worth visiting.
