Cover Unveiled for Infidel by Kameron Kurley


Earlier this year Kameron Hurley impressed a lot of people including me with her harsh debut God's War. The art by Dave Palumbo impressed me as well and his version for the sequel Infidel is no slouch either. In fact I like it a bit more. Hurley's world is a strange and fascinating mixture of science and what seems like magic on a distant world in the distant future. Very much a New Weird of sorts. Culture clashing and religious wars starring a female character that takes as good as she gets in a fight.  Here is the blurb for Infidel:
The only thing worse than war is revolution. Especially when you’re already losing the war…

Nyx used to be a bel dame, a government-funded assassin with a talent for cutting off heads for cash. Her country’s war rages on, but her assassin days are long over. Now she’s babysitting diplomats to make ends meet and longing for the days when killing people was a lot more honorable.

When Nyx’s former bel dame “sisters” lead a coup against the government that threatens to plunge the country into civil war, Nyx volunteers to stop them. The hunt takes Nyx and her inglorious team of mercenaries to one of the richest, most peaceful, and most contaminated countries on the planet — a country wholly unprepared to host a battle waged by the world’s deadliest assassins.
In a rotten country of sweet-tongued politicians, giant bugs, and renegade shape shifters, Nyx will forge unlikely allies and rekindle old acquaintances. And the bodies she leaves scattered across the continent this time… may include her own.

Because no matter where you go or how far you run in this world, one thing is certain: the bloody bel dames will find you.
Infidel will be released in October from Night Shade Books, which is a couple months earlier than originally planned. Also take a gander at the art sans type.

God's War ended up much darker than I thought it'd be, but Nyx is pretty awesome. Glad to see the next cover is just as cool as the first.
