The Dark Defiles by Richard Morgan

Yep, it’s dark alright. And defiled. After the blades on the covers of the previous covers for the A Land Fit for Heroes series, The Steel Remains and The Cold Commands, it’s certainly an in your face change for the series. Pretty bitchin’, if you’ll excuse the term. It feels like a death metal version of the recent UK cover for Terry Brooks’ Bloodfire Quest, which, well, is a hilarious way to think of the series in general.

    I am definitely the sort that can be swayed into dropping down some green on a book just because it has a great cover, and that is a great cover. Now where did I put my green?

    This reminds me that I still have to read The Cold Commands – I absolutely loved The Steel Remains. Has a release date been announced yet for The Dark Defiles?

    To me that looks like what Bloodfire Quest wants to be when it grows up.

    It’s certainly what I want to be when I grow up.
