Shadowcaster Cover Reveal

My agent says that this is his favorite cover yet. It's got some awesome competition, but it's definitely a contender. Sasha Vinogravida, the illustrator, and Erin Fitzsimmons, the designer, have outdone themselves.

As in Flamecaster, the central motif is a magemark, which is a kind of an amulet embedded in the skin of a handful of the gifted. It's still a mystery to those who carry them. All they know is that the Empress in the East is hunting them, and they'd better not get caught!

The landscape in the background is Chalk Cliffs, the queendom of the Fells's only deepwater port, where much of the action in Book 2 takes place.

I hope you like the cover as much as I do!
