Has the cover of a book alone attracted you to it and make you want to buy it? Even though you hadn't read the synopsis yet, you still want to get it? I do. Sounds dumb or weird? Well, every now and again, I'll come across a book cover that just captures my attention totally. I just want to grab it and treat it like it's my pretty. Of course, I do end up reading the synopsis, to decide if I want to read and buy it. I know, don't judge a book by it's cover. But sometimes that book cover can be so compelling.
Gardens of the Moon By Steven Erikson is one of those books. This book cover, illustrated by Michael Komarck, reminds me of the R. A. Salvatore books on the dark elf Drizzit. Of course, this book is a limited edition and costs $125.00. Bummer.
