New cover for Renegade’s Magic?

10 May, 2008 filed under: Robin Hobb, England/UK

Thanks to Lucide for reminding me about this: Voyager is going to publish a paperback edition of Renegade’s Magic the first of July (details). The cover they have posted features the image of Orandula we’ve seen on Jackie Morris’ site. But did they just change the illustrator in the middle of the paperback series, or will there be one with John Howe’s cover as well? (We’ve already seen the hardback and the “large format” mass market paperback with his art for RM.) what do you think? Drop by at the forums and let us know!

Random quote

She flew toward the city. The closer she came, the more obvious became its death. The road was not only completely devoid of the lively traffic it had once sustained; at one point, a landslide had sheared the road away entirely. The memory stone still recalled blackly that it had been told to be a road. She could sense the trapped memories of the merchants and soldiers and nomadic traders who had once traversed it still humming in the stone. Grass and moss had not overcome it. The road still shone, black, straight and level as it made its businesslike way to the city. The road still recalled itself as a highway, but no one else in the world did.
