UK Cover Art for the Alloy of Law

Brandon Sanderson announced the new cover on his blog, and you can read Aidan Moher's post about it on A Dribble of Ink here. I'm really anticipating this book's release - quasi-steampunk plus Allomancy, anyone? - and this cover is just the icing on the cake. It's just as stylish, almost minimal, as the UK covers for the first trilogy, but still gets across the feel of a change in style from its predecessors.

What do you think of the new cover? Are you anticipating any other releases?


  1. I have to say I love the UK new cover. I thought it looked really nice. I liked the US cover, but I think part of me is partical to the UK one. :)

  3. @ Melissa: I feel the same way. Though I like the McGrath artwork, I think the UK cover is a little more stylish. In addition to the fact that it fits in with the previous covers a great deal better.

    @ LindsayWrites: Hi Lindsay,

    Thank you! I'm following back as well. :)
