YAY for better cover art!

And I hate waiting for sequels. When I was younger, I read primarily dead authors and now that I've branched out into books by authors who are still living, I've discovered the torture of waiting for the next book.

WHEW! This book looks MUCH less like something I'd be embarassed to be seen with in public (as I was with the original cover art). And it captures the Asiany-ness of the fantasy culture, too. The original cover just looked kinda . . . generic fantasy.

Kika

oooo pretty

The wait for the sequel is painfully taking forever, but I bet it will be worth the wait.

Abby

Agreed on both counts!

J. L. Bell

Another interesting data point in the discussion of whether to emphasize non-European ethnicity in fantasy stories. This hardcover/softcover shift has gone in the opposite direction from Cindy Pon's Silver Phoenix.

Leila

Yes. I was pleased that Penguin went in this direction, rather than the Piggyback on the Success of the Kelley Armstrong Series route that HarperCollins chose.

Amy

Oh God this is so gorgeous. It sort of reminds me of Avatar: The Last Airbender, which is great stuff. Also, the cover for the sequel rocks as well. It's in the penguin catalog too :)

Awesome! I'm so glad. And also drumming my fingers impatiently as I wait for the sequel... so, Amy, where's the cover for the sequel? I can't find it! Clearly my Googling skills are insufficient.
