This cover is... disappointing.

Ways you can make my life less miserable:

1. Give me this book.
2. Go back to way #1.

One way to describe this series would be to say that it is both unique and original.

To be honest, not a fan of this cover. The original design was so much more eye-catching and aesthetically pleasing. Oh well, let's see what's inside.

And yet again a cover change which makes zero sense.

PS. I like the new cover, but that's really beside the point.

Uggghh.. I am tired and frustrated.

Mid-series cover changes are the bane of my existence. And no, I do not like the new cover style.

Not released until 2020 now?

... you know what, I'm calling this a good thing, because this means that Somiaya Daud isn't rushing and maybe this won't suffer from Middle Book Syndrome.

(Also doth my eyes deceive me but this is going to be a trilogy? YES PLEASE?)

What a beautiful cover! Pity there is no continuity in the covers. But anyway, who else hates that these book are released 2 years at a time?!?
