SCENT OF MAGIC COVER ART!

Of course the caveat that this isn't final final, but pretty darn close :)   This is the US/Canada editon.  So?  What do you think?  I love the colors. Does Kerrick remind you of anyone??  And there's a slight spoiler for TOUCH OF POWER in the cover copy so if you haven't read the book, you might want to skip that :)

  2. I LOVE it!!! I like it better than Touch of Power, though I really liked that one too. This brings an almost ethereal quality.

    Can't wait!!! I'll be first in line at the bookstore on release day.

  3. Looks good, but I really can't wait for the UK cover reveal as I loved the Study/Glass/Power covers a lot more than the US ones... the person who designs them is great (whoever they are!!)

    My only problem is the guy on the cover doesn't really seem like Kerrick. I just pictured him differently.

  11. Hmm, this is the first cover of yours I've seen with a guy on it. I love everything about the cover except for him. He seems kind of vague in the background while she is so sharply well drawn. That and I think I like the mystery of picturing how your male characters look like in my head. ;-) Either way, I'm super excited!

  12. Once again, another fantastic cover. As much as I expect Avry to be beautiful I would also expect her to have plenty of visible scars... And is it just me or does Kerrick look like he has a secret... Cant wait!!

  19. Whoa! Stunning. I usually am so jealous of the Australian and UK covers which I liked better for some of your other books, but this time the US cover is stunning! I really love it. Can't wait to get my Maria Snyder fix either when this book comes out finally!

  25. Thanks everyone! I can't take any credit for the cover art as my publisher's art department does all that.

    The UK cover designer is Henry Steadman (www.henrysteadman.com) and I agree, he does a fantastic job with all my covers.

    SCENT OF MAGIC is due out at the very end of 2012 in the US.

    Kerrick doesn't match how I imagined him - he has shoulder-length hair that's a little darker, but the face is close. I thought he looked a little like an older Josh Hutcherson (Peeta from the Hunger Games).

  27. I finished Touch of Power a few days ago and absolutely LOVED it!

    I can't wait for Scent of Magic! I'm so excited that this book will have scenes from Kerrick's POV! AHHHHHHH. *happy dance*
