For the Twilight fans in the house–at midnight on Friday, the cover for Stephanie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn was released.
I love the cover art for all of Stephanie Meyer’s work–although I’m a bit surprised by this cover. It’s certainly not what I expected. The white Queen and the red Pawn…interesting. Any thoughts?
Breaking Dawn is the fourth and final book in the Twilight saga. It hits stores August 2, 2008–make sure to preorder your copy. I smell Harry Potter like lines come August 1…
And while we’re on the subject of new covers, Lois McMaster Bujold posted the upcoming cover for The Sharing Knife: Horizon (Book 4) (Since I have just finished The Vor Game and am even MORE in love with Miles–and Gregor too–I had to give her website a thorough once-over).
There’s a cool collection of all the cover art (by the same artist, Julie Bell) here. In her blog, Ms. Bujold says she wanted to use George Caleb Bingham’s depiction of Daniel Boone escorting settlers through the Cumberland Gap as a jumping off point for the Horizon cover. I kinda like the action shot feel of the Horizon cover, with the people in the background, and the western sort of feel. While the latter two covers don’t feel as ‘magical’ as the covers for Beguilement and Legacy, I do love the western fronteir, sort of exodus feel to Passage and Horizon.
The Sharing Knife: Horizon is slated to hit stores in February 2009. Book 3, Passage is available now at a bookstore near you!
