A few months ago, I raised a bit of a stink by posting a leaked version of the cover for N.K. Jemisin’s The Broken Kingdoms. Oops. I thought it was awesome, and most people agreed. Now, we get a look at a new, revised (and final) version of the cover. New layout for the type (which I’m not a fan of, I liked the more traditional layout on the early cover) and the colours seem to pop a bit more. Still a damn fine cover.
I’m excited for this book. I didn’t see the cover you leaked, but regardless, this cover has a unique, eye catching quality. I enjoyed the first book a lot more than I expected. I hope this one surprises me as well.

Liking this version much better. The art adjustments, the type, everything. Great job, Orbit team. I couldn’t really get into the first book, but am usually interested in trying a second time. I wonder if this one can be read without finishing the first.
