Welcome to a brand new cover art review! I have a ton of these I really want to do as there are so many great novels coming out this year. Words of Radiance, the next in Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archives series, is going to be another one I cover over the next couple of weeks.
So, perhaps in contrast to the more classical art featured on the cover of Words of Radiance, today we’re looking at a cover that could just as easily be a movie poster. This is The Barrow by Mark Smylie. The novel takes place in the same world as Mr Smylie’s Artesia comics, which are themselves a military fantasy series with a female main protagonist.
