Cover Unveiled for BLACK HALO by Sam Sykes

Sam Sykes was kind enough to allow me and Amanda from Floor to Ceiling Books to premiere the cover  for Black Halo the second book in The Aeons' Gate series, which follows on the heels of Tome of the Undergates.

The cover follows the same format as the first and is by the same artist Paul Young. Here is what I wrote to Sam after he sent the cover to me: "Damn son. That is one fine cover.  Even better than the Tome art."  When Sam first told me the cover would portray Lenk again as on Tome of the Undergates I was a bit disappointed. I was hoping for a Dragonman, but after seeing this my disappointment was summarily dismissed. As cool as the water was on Tome the fire trumps it here.  This should definitely draw in the post-Dungeons & Dragons audience.  Black Halo will be released in the US in March and the UK in April.

I wasn't too fond of the Tome cover myself, but this turned out pretty cool. Love the flames. Still not a big figure person on covers, but at least it resembles Lenk.
