Prince Thief Cover Reveal

Isn't that just stunning?

Yeah, Angelo Rinaldi's cover for Prince Thief has finally been revealed to the world ... and hopefully, if the world has any sense at all, it's responded with a sharp intake of breath and a cry of "My, but that's a cover of unusual awesomeness!"

I have to admit, I'm particularly in love with this one; even compared to the other two, it's a truly striking image, and uncannily close to what I had in mind.  I think there's a trend at the moment for more simple, less involved covers in Fantasy, but personally I love to look at the front of a book and think "blimey, that's an interesting thing going on right there." 

I mean, if you've followed the series this far, you must be at least a little bit curious as to why Damasco is running away from a burning - or, let's face it, pretty much exploding - ship, and who that is behind him, and ... is that the crown of Altapasaeda he's carrying? 

And if you haven't read Giant Thief or Crown Thief, don't you want to read a book where there's that much stuff on fire?  I know I would.
