{Cover Reveal} KINSLAYER by Jay Kristoff

Last year, I remarked on how gorgeous both the US and UK covers for Jay Kristoff's debut novel STORMDANCER were:

  Well, the covers for KINSLAYER have debuted, and they're even fiercer! Who wouldn't want to pick it up based on these covers?



What are your thoughts about the covers? Which country's treatment do you like the best?

I just can't decide! I love them both in different ways. The UK cover has always had more of an Asian flair, but OMG, the US cover for KINSLAYER is just jaw-dropping, simply poster-worthy!

If you aren't reading this series, you should be!

Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books / Macmillan


The mad Shōgun Yoritomo has been assassinated by the Stormdancer Yukiko, and the threat of civil war looms over the Shima Imperium. The Lotus Guild conspires to renew the nation’s broken dynasty and crush the growing rebellion simultaneously – by endorsing a new Shōgun who desires nothing more than to see Yukiko dead. 

Yukiko and the mighty thunder tiger Buruu have been cast in the role of heroes by the Kagé rebellion. But Yukiko herself is blinded by rage over her father’s death, and her ability to hear the thoughts of beasts is swelling beyond her power to control. Along with Buruu, Yukiko’s anchor is Kin, the rebel Guildsman who helped her escape from Yoritomo’s clutches. But Kin has his own secrets, and is haunted by visions of a future he’d rather die than see realized. 

Kagé assassins lurk within the Shōgun’s palace, plotting to end the new dynasty before it begins. A waif from Kigen’s gutters begins a friendship that could undo the entire empire. A new enemy gathers its strength, readying to push the fracturing Shima imperium into a war it cannot hope to survive. And across raging oceans, amongst islands of black glass, Yukiko and Buruu will face foes no katana or talon can defeat. 

The ghosts of a blood-stained past.
