Looks like a crimson guardsman on the Wrecker's Coast.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

I think it's cool. Probably my favorite Esslemont cover.

I like it, I will look more forward to the PS Publishing Limited hard back version though ;-)

I like. It has the right 'seasoned veterans looking ahead at something staggeringly awesome without flinching' tone to it.

Needs a ship tho'.

It's right there on the cover. It's a hardship.

Son of a bitch! The UK Amazon site has the kindle edition on sale for 8 pounds but says it's only for UK citizens. Regular Amazon is selling it for 23 dollars.

Amazon UK is the regular Amazon, the US site with the fandangled $ currency is the irregular here! :p

I am not gonna feel too badly for you if you have to pay more for Assail as we pay more for EVERYTHING ELSE! :p

Nice, I like this one quite a bit. It's nice after the blehness Forge of Darkness cover and the stock image Blood and Bone cover.
uhm, that should be 'stuff.' My stiff is never nihilistic.

Look at the very top and you will see a clue.

It nourishes everything, yet itself feeds upon destruction. We claim to control it, but does it not perhaps cultivate us as a source of food? May it not be that all wood grows so that it can be set ablaze, and that men and women are born to kindle fires?"

'A thrilling close'.. is this the final Esslemont malazan book then?
So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.

Of this book deal at least. I have a sneaking suspicion there will be more though. At the end of the SW reread at TOR, SE mentioned that ICE might have an exciting announcement to make, but then ICE wasn't available for the Q&A so it never happened!

He said:
"Finally, have a great holiday, everyone, and Bill and Amanda and everyone at TOR, thanks so much for taking this through -- we're nearing completion, folks, although Cam may have a certain announcement forthcoming (yes, I'm offering a tease that puts him on the spot, something Dancer often did to Shadowthrone, as I recall)."

I guess we'll never know!

I like what is there, but I think it could use a little something more, as is often the case with these "people at the bottom, giant scenery on top" sort of covers. This is like DG, except that DG had the abstract hound heads in the dust clouds. I kinda feel like there should be something vaguely hidden in the ice, here. Oh well, it's way better than B&B.

I kinda love it when D'rek unleashes her nerd wrath, as I knew she would here. Sorry innocent bystanders, but someone's gotta be the kindling.

Am I the only one who thinks it looks quite like a rehash of TCG cover? Substitute Fire with Ice and put some more figures in the background and that's basically it

You're right, but that might be deliberate, being the co-finale.

This series, all told, truly was some sort of lyrical piece regarding fire and ice.

Is Assail officially out? I am still reading OST (about 70% done), then there's Blood and Bone left to read
