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.

    I understand what you mean about not liking the style, I don’t like it either, but yay cats though :D

    I agree, it’s a weird decision for the cover. I picture a cover like that on some coming-of-age in the 1800’s type book for some reason. It just doesn’t seem Hobb-ish. Oh well!

    If only they would go back to using John Howe covers, the covers now are dull as f….well you know!
