Cover Reveal: Red Country

It seems I just can't keep up with all the great books being released in the coming months.

Gollancz unveiled the UK cover for Joe Abercrombie's Red Country today.

Stylistically it fits perfectly with the rest of the books in the series. Those blood-spattered, weapon-laden maps just shout Abercrombie and they have become somewhat of a signature for his books (at least for the UK versions).

They burned her home.

They stole her brother and sister.

But vengeance is following.

Shy South hoped to bury her bloody past and ride away smiling, but she’ll have to sharpen up some bad old ways to get her family back, and she’s not a woman to flinch from what needs doing. She sets off in pursuit with only a pair of oxen and her cowardly old stepfather Lamb for company. But it turns out Lamb’s buried a bloody past of his own, and out in the lawless Far Country, the past never stays buried.

Their journey will take them across the barren plains to a frontier town gripped by gold fever, through feud, duel and massacre, high into the unmapped mountains to a reckoning with the Ghosts. Even worse, it will force them into alliance with Nicomo Cosca, infamous soldier of fortune, and his feckless lawyer Temple, two men no one should ever have to trust. . .

The past never stays buried . . .

Red Country
will be released in October and is currently available for pre-order.
