The Other Lands – David Anthony Durham: Cover Art and Description

12 Feb

A little over an hour ago David Anthony Durham sent me and three other bloggers this info, and I’ve got to tell you, I couldn’t have been happier to see it! 🙂 What you see below is the official cover art to the much-anticipated sequel to Acacia, Book 1 of The War with the Mein, The Other Lands! 🙂

David told us the following:

I just this morning got something from my editor, and I immediately thought of showing it you guys. You were so kind to Acacia when it came out, and I’m really keen to make sure you and your readers know that the follow up, The Other Lands, is really coming soon! I’m putting the finishing touches on the manuscript right now, but Doubleday has already gone into production on it. Looks like the Sept pub date might really happen. I think the UK and the French won’t be far behind either.

As part of what Dday has been up to, they’ve just shown me the cover! I’ve attached it. You may recognize the cover image from the German edition of Acacia. Strange but true, Doubleday fell in love with it enough that they wanted to do their own version of it for The Other Lands.

So, are you guys ready for that? I know I am! 🙂 The world David created is one of the most vibrant in any epic fantasy novel I’ve ever read, and the characters are so alive that it’s scary (one of them in particular, in fact; remember her?), and if you haven’t yet read Acacia, get to it! 🙂 Here’s the link to my review, and after you’ve read that, you can click on ‘Acacia’ above to order your copy. 🙂 C’mon, you know you want to! 🙂

Here’s the cover:

The Other Lands: Book 2 of The Acacia Trilogy

And now for the description – and I’m giving out a spoiler warning here, guys and girls! If you haven’t yet read Acacia, don’t spoil it and read this description of The Other Lands! You have been warned! 🙂

The apocalyptic struggle against the conquering Mein now won, Queen Corinn rules over the Acacian Empire of the Known World with a stern hand—aided by increasing mastery of the occult powers contained in the Book of Elenet. But far across the seas the mysterious inhabitants of the Other Lands seemingly control the fate of her empire—supported as it is by an underground trade in drugs and slaves. When she sends her brother Dariel on a secret mission across the hazardous Grey Slopes to investigate, it begins another cycle of world-shattering and shaping events.

In this bold and imaginative sequel, David Anthony Durham’s epic imagination continues to expand the Known World of the novel into yet undiscovered lands, drawing on a literary tradition that stretches from The Iliad to George R.R. Martin.

Pre-order your copy now! 🙂

Be Fantastic!
