In my defense, I have wanted to read this series since the first book was released. But…While spending some time scrolling over at A Dribble of Ink, I found out that Joe Abercrombie’s UK publisher is re-releasing his First Law books with new Chris McGrath covers. Since it was a newer post, I saw the new cover for the third book, Last Argument of Kings, first. And, yes, that was pretty much all it took for me to head over to the Book Depository and place an order. Now, having read the other posts on these new covers, it appears that they’re not exactly a spot-on representation of the characters, but they’re definitely eye-catching. Don’t you think?
Last Argument of Kings is only $5.99 at the BD right now! Which made me feel a little bit better about giving in to my superficial love of its cover. (It’s McGrath’s fault, though, right? Because in the world of sci-fi/fantasy covers, he can do no wrong.)
