Cover Story

Kristopher Orr’s cover art for The Auralia Thread has been nothing short of inspiring for me.

And this morning, I revealed the book cover for The Ale Boy’s Feast, the final chapter in the series. (Unfinished versions have been floating around on various bookseller sites, but the real cover is here now.)

    Add another vote for Auralia’s Colors, but I like them all.

    I think Auralia’s Colors is my favorite. For one thing, I’m a sucker for moonlit scenes. I love the use of moonlight in the clouds and the mist, and the way it reflects from the city below. The overall effect is both beautiful and mysterious… more than any of the other covers, it made me want to be there.

    Whoops! I neglected to say that the cover on The Ale Boy’s Feast cover is beautiful and, aside from the face issues, I like it very well!

    Auralia’s Colors is by far my favorite, though I liked Raven’s Ladder very much. I agree with Thomas’ comments over on the Facebook page; it’s always hard to have to ignore an artist’s (mis!)conception of a character’s face or attempt to reconcile it with my own.

    This one’s my favorite. Next to Auralia’s Colors. They’re all awesome, though! Mr Orr is very talented.
