And we’re back in my favorite genre, historical fantasy. Now, I’m not a huge fan of the author name being bigger than the title. The few times I can see it working is for authors such as Stephen King, where many people buy it solely because it’s a Stephen King book. This author, not so much. I like the branding of the series name at the bottom, but then the quote at the top is a bit confusing to me, as that seems to name something else (yes, I’m aware that Malazan is the name of the world, but not everyone would). The fonts are on-genre, though, and though I’d like the title to be brighter/bigger than the author, they work.
The color scheme is on point – gritty, dusty, magic. The outfit confuses me, as it doesn’t seem to be quite right, asymmetric, too many folds, something. It reminds me of some AI bot art I’ve seen, because the bot doesn’t truly understand how things like human arms work.
