Cover Reveal: Masters of the Veil


Today I've got a cover reveal for Masters of The Veil by Daniel Cohen. I recently read and reviewed his debut novel The Ancillary's Mark (you can read my review HERE) and am looking forward to his upcoming release. We have a while to wait given that it won't be available from Spencer Hill Press until March 1st 2012 (which is a lucky day I think because it just happens to be my birthday, but I digress), but it's never too early to start counting down for a book release I say!

What do you guys think?

MASTERS OF THE VEIL:

Life can’t get much better for Sam Lock. Popular, good-looking, and with a future as a professional football player… every guy at Stanton High School wishes he were Sam. That is, until his championship football game, when Sam accidentally links with an ancient source of energy known as the Veil and reveals his potential to become a powerful sorcerer.

Sam’s dreams are crushed as he is whisked off to Atlas Crown, a community of sorcerers who utilize the Veil as a part of everyday life. Once there, he trains beside a mute boy who speaks through music, an eternal sage who is the eyes and ears of the Veil, and a beautiful girl who's pretty sure Sam's an idiot.

As it becomes clear that Sam is meant for power magic—the most feared and misunderstood form of sorcery—people beyond Atlas Crown learn of his dangerous potential. An exiled group of power sorcerers are eager to recruit Sam, believing that he is destined to help them achieve their long-held goal. If they succeed, they could bring about the downfall of not only Atlas Crown… but all of humankind.

  9. I love the sound of this book, but I'm not so keen on the cover. It's just a bit ... umm, I don't know. Boring maybe?

  10. Tori - I just read his first book, The Ancillary's Mark, a few weeks back and enjoyed it for the most part. I look forward to this one:)

    Jenny - It is a long wait, I can hardly wait for books that are coming out next month!

    Slowest - I love the sound of it as well, but I agree, this cover isn't my favorite though I do like the texture - almost scale like.

  13. Hey Everybody!!

    Thanks again Jenny for posting the cover. And thanks for all the kind words. For those wondering: In Masters of the Veil there is a snake with scales like the night sky. It's a pretty important part of the book, so I wanted to express it in the cover. I really hope you guys enjoy it, and I wish March was sooner :)

  14. Rummanah - It does sound promising:)

    Melissa - Ha! Thanks, only 11 months to go:)

    Dan - You're very welcome! I was wondering if they were supposed to look like scales, I really like that element:)

  15. After reading Daniel's comment about the snake, I think the cover is very good in a subdued way. It gets across a message without it being in your face.

  16. I've had The Ancillary's Mark on my Kindle for months now and hadn't made it that far. Looks like I'm going to have to give it a looksy. As for this one, it sounds fabulous and I very much enjoy books with male leads, as they aren't as often found as female leads.

  17. Cathy - I agree, that scaled effect is my favorite part, glad to know it actually applies to the story as well, sometimes things appear on the cover that have nothing to do with the book:)

    Jen - Can't wait to see what you think of The Ancillary's Mark! I'm excited to read his second one:)

  18. Hmmm...the description makes the book sound like fantasy, but the cover looks more sci fi to me. Maybe it would be different in person.
