Cover art - "Crossroads of Twilight" by Robert Jordan

Greg Ruth joins the line-up of artists for the e-book editions of Robert Jordan’s “Wheel of Time” series of novels released by Tor Books, illustrating the cover of the tenth novel of the series, “Crossroads of Twilight”. This cover is a bit different than the previous ones, in terms of style and approach. It is a cover with a wider scene than the previous ones, at least it offers this feeling. Still centered on a character it brings more into focus a story, a feeling that is something more to this scene than the eye can take into consideration and this is an excellent achievement. Also, it is a cover that uses fewer colors, but it doesn’t lose force because of this, on the contrary. Greg Ruth made an excellent contribution to this series of covers and Tor Books keeps this feature at the highest level. As usual you can find more about the artwork of “Crossroads of Twilight” in an article posted by Irene Gallo on This e-book edition of Robert Jordan’s “Crossroads of Twilight” will be released on July 20th.
