I’ve had the fantastic fortune of reading an advance copy of Brian McClellan’s debut novel Promise of Blood and I can say without hesitation it’s going to be one of the major hits of 2013. Not only will I have a review coming shortly through my work at Fantasy-Faction but I will also be interviewing Brian later this month.
However, this past Friday, Brian and Orbit decided to release the cover art for book two in the series, The Crimson Campaign.
Now I already thought the cover art for Promise of Blood was beautiful and this new cover does not disappoint. With Photo-Illustration done by Michael Frost and Gene Mollica and the design by Lauren Panepinto this truly is one of the more gorgeous pieces of book art I’ve seen.
Promise of Blood, the first book of The Powder Mage Trilogy is scheduled to hit shelves April 16, 2013 while The Crimson Campaign, book two, is due out from Orbit in February 2014.
