    Hi,

    Love it. Beautiful and strange / eerie. That what you're going for?

    Cheers, Greg.

    Yeah, no doubt. The lead in to that scene will be humorous, a priestess used to robes wearing very little... it’ll also be a fun little shot at the scantily clad fantasy heroine while at the same time, having said heroine on the cover ;)

    You might wanna darken the city and change the colors up some as my firsthand thought is heck that's a ton of green what am I supposed to be looking at. If you darken certain things it will pull attention to that thing such as the priestess or the city.

    I really like the artistic more Illustrated style of the art. I doesn't seem as cheesy as a lot of covers do today. It would catch my attention, pique my interest in the series and generally get my approval from the start for having a higher artistic element to the cover. If the scene on the cover echoes or "shows" a scene inside the book, all the better, I like it when I can read a scene in my head and then compare it to how the writer intended the scene to look.

    The first two books’ covers were more “impressions” while this cover depicts a key scene toward the end of the book. Thank you for the kind words!
