I love the Tyrant's Fall cover. Something about big, stone statues always gets me jazzed to read.

Very impressive! Some of those are quite nice in terms of fantasy cover art. Would like to see a similar list compiled for sci-fi :)

The Barclay Books look outstanding. Also, how come the French titles have cover art that far surpassed what the UK and US have to offer? It's just not fair.

Adam, it is a great cover. I love how the artist made the setting. Also "Prince of Dogs" has a great setting :)

Sci-fi Bookworm, that is a very nice suggestion. I will make a list for the next year focused on Sci-Fi titles too :)

Jamie, the French titles have awesome covers. Not all of course, but many of them are truly impressive. I hope we can see more such cover art :)
