We are practically hopping with excitement over here, because today we’re participating in the official cover reveal for Kinslayer, the hotly anticipated second book in Jay Kristoff’s epic steampunk Asian fantasy series that began with Stormdancer.
The book won’t be out until this fall, but we’ve already got the US and UK/overseas covers to show you now, along with a sweet ARC giveaway. Are you read for all the awesomeness?
Look how furious Buruu looks on the US cover! The author promised us there will be blood (heh), blood like a river, so judging by the marks on Yukiko’s face, it seems that there will be some serious conflict up ahead. I love the jade green colors, too. AND THERE IS A DRAGON.
I quite like the overseas cover as well–it has a different feel to it, but it’s just as arresting with the cool blues and misty whites of the waterfall contrasting with the bright yellow leaves. The brushstroke font and symbols are a nice touch as well.
Win a Kinslayer ARC hot off the presses!
