Cover Lust #17 – Half a King by Joe Abercrombie
I love the contrast in this between the colour of the fonts and the snowflake and the very grey background. The cover is very chilly, and the sharp, blade-like appearance of the snowflake makes it menacing.
The little figures in the background are so small, it suggests to me the scale of the danger they are in from the cold – that snowflake is so big and spiky compared to them, making them look vulnerable.
Overall, I’m really excited about reading this one. I haven’t even read a blurb for it – the cover’s just so interesting it does all the work in grabbing my attention and making me want to read the book.
