Do you love an ass-kicking dragon that could beat Smaug in a fight any day? How about an ass-kicking dragon that could beat Smaug and appear to be made from metal? Well, in that case you’re going to love the new cover for Andy Remic‘s forthcoming novel, The Dragon Engine, which features the most excellent metal bodied, red eyed, fiery mouthed giant lizard around. The cover was designed by the brilliant Lee Gibbons. You can see more of Lee’s work over at his blog.
Here’s what you can expect from the book, which is released on 1 Sept (US/Can) 3 Sept (UK/R.o.W).
Five noble war heroes of Vagandrak get drunk one night and sign a contract – to journey to the Karamakkos in search of the Five Havens. There, it is written, there lies untold, abandoned wealth and, more importantly, the three Dragon Heads, legendary jewels claimed to give unspeakable power and everlasting life to those who wield them.
But the Dragon Heads aren’t what the adventurers think they are, and the world has not encountered their like in generations!
The lovely folks over at Fantasy Faction have done the honours and written up a great cover reveal post, which will give you the full cover image. Just click on the dragon’s face to view.
