Cover Art: The Black Prism by Brent Weeks
The cover art of Brent Weeks' upcoming book The Black Prism improves on the previously leaked cover. I also think that it's much nicer looking than the covers of the author's The Night Angel Trilogy. I like its dark composition.
The only flaw I see with this cover is that the angle of the moonlight on the blade and on the man's face are totally contradictory... unless those are different light sources, of course. But then, the man's face wouldn't be this dark.
The cover artist is Richard Jones.
Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals.
But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he’s willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.
