Kingmaker, Kingbreaker by Karen Miller

I don’t have much interest in this duology, published for the first time in a single volume, but I did want to post the cover and commend the Orbit Books team on the cover. It’s clearly fantasy, and hits on the all the aspects familiar to Fantasy cover art, like landscapes and, hell, even a cloaked figure, but presents them in a way that’s unique and would catch my eye at the bookstore among the rows and rows of hooded figures. There’s a certain sense of adventure in the image that I appreciate. All around, a solid cover.

What do you think the cover? And what about the Kingmaker, Kingbreaker duology?

    The cover is quite good, but the books are utter shite.

    I like the point of view and the movement of the cloak-cape thing and the good contrast for the name of the author. The rest ( colors, typography, evocation ) is pretty bad.
