Portada de The Tattered Prince and the Demon Veiled

En su blog Bradley P. Beaulieu ha publicado la que será portada de su nueva novella en el mundo de Shattered Sands, que se llamará The Tattered Prince and the Demon Veiled. Es obra de René Aigner.

Aquí os traigo la descripción:

Brama was once a thief who dreamed of riches. Now he’s the Torn Man, a broken soul who could have all the riches he wants, except he no longer yearns for it. He’s chosen instead to live in the poorest quarter of Sharakhai with the very creature who tortured him mercilessly, a powerful ehrekh known as Rümayesh.

Brama’s life changes forever when he stumbles across a woman named Jax, an intriguing young foreigner fleeing assassins from her homeland. Brama has feared to use Rümayesh’s power, but asks her now to help save Jax from her fate. Rümayesh, who seems curiously fascinated by Jax, agrees.

Brama has little time to wonder over Rümayesh’s sudden and unexpected interest, for his fate soon becomes entangled with Jax’s. As a drug lord learns of Brama’s sapphire, and the assassins close in, Brama fights to save Jax, preventing him from focusing on what may be the biggest threat of all: Rümayesh herself.

La verdad, tengo mucho curiosidad por seguir con la obra de Beaulieu. Esperemos que con suerte, no tarde mucho en leerla.

Portada de Wrath of Empire

Ya tenemos aquí la portada de Wrath of Empire, la que será segunda entrega de la nueva trilogía de Brian McClellan en el mundo de Powder Mage. Sabéis que la primera entrega me gustó mucho, así que espero con interés este nuevo libro, que saldrá publicado el día 6 de marzo del año que viene.

The country is in turmoil. With the capital city occupied, half a million refugees are on the march, looking for safety on the frontier, accompanied by Lady Flint’s soldiers. But escaping war is never easy, and soon the battle may find them, whether they are prepared or not.

Back in the capital, Michel Bravis smuggles even more refugees out of the city. But internal forces are working against him. With enemies on all sides, Michael may be forced to find help with the very occupiers he’s trying to undermine.

Meanwhile, Ben Styke is building his own army. He and his mad lancers are gathering every able body they can find and searching for an ancient artifact that may have the power to turn the tides of war in their favor. But what they find may not be what they’re looking for.

Portada de American Hippo

Aquí os traigo la portada del omnibus de Sarah Gailey, titulado American Hippo, que recopilará en un solo volumen River of Teeth y Taste of Marrow, junto con un relato corto situado en el mismo escenario.

La fecha de publicación será mayo del 2018.

Portada del nuevo libro de Claire North 84K

Se ha desvelado cuál será la portada de 84K, la nueva novela de Claire North. ¡Y yo no puedo esperar hasta mayo para leerla!

Theo Miller knows the value of human life – to the very last penny. 

Working in the Criminal Audit Office, he assesses each crime that crosses his desk and makes sure the correct debt to society is paid in full.

But when his ex-lover is killed, it’s different. This is one death he can’t let become merely an entry on a balance sheet. 

Because when the richest in the world are getting away with murder, sometimes the numbers just don’t add up.

 

Portada de Embers of War

Aquí os traigo la que será portada de la nueva novela de Gareth L. Powell, Embers of War. En realidad es la portada y contraportada del ARC, pero sirve para hacerse una idea.

Parece space opera interesante, ¿no?

Portada de Rogue Protocol

El mundo editorial se mueve muy rápido. No hace tanto que comentábamos la primera entrega de la Murderbot Series y ya tenemos aquí la que será portada de la tercer entrega, que se publicará en agosto del año que viene.

Un pequeño adelanto:

SciFi’s favorite crabby A.I. is again on a mission. The case against the too-big-to-fail GrayCris Corporation is floundering, and more importantly, authorities are beginning to ask more questions about where Dr. Mensah’s SecUnit is.

And Murderbot would rather those questions went away. For good.

Aunque es innegablemente más impersonal que las anteriores, me gusta esa sensación de grandiosidad que transmite. ¿Qué os parece?

Portadas de Mary Robinette Kowal

“The Lady Astronaut off Mars” consiguió ganar el premio Hugo en la categoría novelette y la autora ha escrito dos nuevos libros en el mismo mundo que se publicarán en verano del año que viene. Estos libros, The Calculating Stars y The Fated Sky, serán precuelas a la historia.

Se han dado a conocer las portadas de estas dos nuevas historias, aquí os las traigo a ver qué os parecen. Son de Jamie Stafford-Hill.

Al ser dos novelas sobre el mismo hecho desde distintos puntos de vista, me parece brillante la elección de un tema similar cambiando el color de fondo para crear contraste. ¿Qué os parecen a vosotros?

Portada de City of Lies

Hoy os traigo la portada City of Lies, la primea novela de la serie Poison Wars de Sam Hawke. Es obra de Greg Ruth.

La sinopsis:

I was seven years old the first time my uncle poisoned me…

Outwardly, Jovan is the lifelong friend of the Chancellor’s charming, irresponsible Heir. Quiet. Forgettable. In secret, he’s a master of poisons and chemicals, trained to protect the Chancellor’s family from treachery. When the Chancellor succumbs to an unknown poison and an army lays siege to the city, Jovan and his sister Kalina must protect the Heir and save their city-state.

But treachery lurks in every corner, and the ancient spirits of the land are rising… and angry.

Portada de The Tangled Lands

No sabía que Paolo Bacigalupi y Tobias S. Buckell estaban trabajando en una novela juntos, pero por si no os despierta la curiosidad esta colaboración, aquí una llega una portada ESTUPENDA para que la espera se nos haga larga hasta febrero del año que viene.

Y aquí la sinopsis:

Khaim, the last great city of a decaying empire, clings to life. The living memory of the empire’s great city of Jhandpara is told in the hovels of the refugee camps across the river in Lesser Khaim; the other cities are buried under cloying, poisonous bramble.

It is a world where magic destroys. Every time a spell is cast, a bit of bramble sprouts, sending up tangling vines, bloody thorns, and a poisonous sleep. It sprouts in tilled fields and in neighbors’ roof beams, thrusts up from between cobblestones and bursts forth from sacks of powdered spice. A bit of magic, and bramble follows. A little at first, and then more—until whole cities are dragged down under tangling vines, monuments to people who loved magic too much. Teams of workers fight a losing battle to preserve the environment against the growing bramble. To practice magic is to tempt death at the hands of the mob, yet the city of Khaim is ruled by a tyrant and the most powerful of defilers, the last great Majister of the world.

Award-winning authors Paolo Bacigalupi and Tobias S. Buckell explore a shared world, told in four parts, where magic is forbidden and its use is rewarded with the headman’s axe—a world of glittering memories and a desperate present, where everyone uses a little magic, and someone else always pays the price.
