The cover art for the next Night Lords novel Blood Reaver has been released by ADB earlier today.

.... If Jon Sullivan has not won an award yet then he better get one for this. Because it is just bloody awesome. Plus in red?, nice.

Loved cover of Soul Hunter and love this one too. These looks like "real" artistic covers, instead of many others which look more like they been taken out from comic books.

Been thinking that has many authors any say about these covers in advance, like what they want to see in these covers? Or is it more like, put some Night lords in this cover and show it when its ready. Guess authors normally are shown work when its finished like everyone else. Maybe ADB has answers to this, how much authors can influence artists on what they gonna draw.

Anyways really good cover again.

Looking highly sexy; the red tinge is far prefferable to the blue one from Soul Hunter.

Such said, why do the two -presumably- Red Corsairs look exactly alike? And why does the Night Lord Raptor in the middle-ground look exactly like the one from the cover of Throne of Lies? Annoying, picture-tomfoolery, its lazy looks tacky and frankly is insulting to the story/author. By definition its still Art/an illustration but Sullivan isn`t worthy of any reward. Shadow King, Nagash the Unbroken, take a look, the Druchii on the former are exactly the same, as are those from Malekith...

Well in this case its because the Raptor on the covers side and on Throne of Lies is Lucoryphus so obviously it'd have to look the same.

Excellent cover-art, really impressive stuff.

Blacklibrary has just put all "coming-soon covers" on the site, I like them all.
