Eye Candy Covers pt.VII

I've perused Orbit's US titles scheduled for Fall/Winter 2008 - thanks for the link John - and I must say that I really like the covers of Brent Weeks' "The Night Angel Trilogy"; all three books will be released in rapid succession (from September till November) in mass market paperback editions. I admit that I never heard of Brent Weeks before, but the fact that he made a 3 book deal with Orbit as a debut author speaks for itself. Here is the premise of "The Way of Shadows", book one of The Night Angel Trilogy:
"For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art-and he is the city’s most accomplished artist.

For Kyllar Stern, survival is essential. As a guild rat, he’s learned to judge people quickly-and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint.

But to be accepted, he must turn his back on everything he has ever known.

The perfect killer has no friends. He only has targets."
Another ninja/thief/assassin/shady guild-business (re)iteration of the polished fantasy convention? All looks like it, but let's give the author a benefit of the doubt. Enough talk, on with the fabled covers:
~ The Night Angel Trilogy ~
  1. "The Way of Shadows" (Sep 30, available for pre-order: US, UK)
  2. "Shadow's Edge" (Oct 28, available for pre-order: US, UK)
