Voice of Crow cover

Taking a wee break from the RWA recap, which will return tomorrow when I have more time, to show you the final version of the Voice of Crow cover (click image for larger version).

The dead tree in the background figured prominently in Eyes of Crow and will do so even more in Voice of Crow.

Also, the fact that Rhia is standing in a wheat field is particularly clever on the part of the artist. Though she never literally does that in Voice of Crow, we all know what happens in the wheat field at the end of Eyes (clue for those who haven't read it: bad, bad stuff). The psychological and spiritual ramifications of that event weave throughout Voice, so it has resonance for this book as well.

So a million thanks to the brilliant artist Chad Michael Ward of Digital Apocalypse, and the art team at Harlequin for another great cover.

It's lovely! Counting down the days until its release. Just like with the first book, the cover is extremely eye-catching. It's what attracted me to the book in the first place. I hope it does to same for other readers. :)
