Ooh, I like this one when you think about it compared to the others in the series! No face marks... And I particularly like the closed eyes - very secretive!

He looks very girly with those lips. But maybe I prefer "manly men". I wait for the book. Regards

Now it could just be wishful thinking (and wishful hoping and praying!) but when I read about Kaleb... that's what I see!

You can't see the Cardinal stars!

I agree with the girly comment, not the epitome of a hot alpha-ish male...What happened to masculine and rugged? I'm not one for pretty boys. I'd feel like I am reading a YA book about a teenager.

Next time I am in the UK, I have a mission to buy all of the Psy/Changeling and Angel books just to bring back. :P

how can we find out who the models on the cover are?

I know that sounds creepily stalkerish but i was kinda curious what the full face of some of these covers looked like XD

Hmmm he's looks a bit 'Psy'ish to me :) I still think it's Kaleb. If he was changeling I think he would have had a more rugged look. Is it June yet?

Wrayth Lethe said...

@anon it could be one of the other arrows? I agree though, Psy was my first thought too.

I like the North American page better.

I quite like it. To be honest, if he had his eyes open he'd definitely look quite masculine. The closed eyes gives a unique delicateness to the person that is, to me, very psy-like. Here's hoping it's either Kaleb or Vasic's book. :D

FluffyKat said...

Wow, he sure is pretty...
I find myself staring at those lashes... and staring and staring...
and then stare some more at the lips

Maybe that's WHY the eyes are closed! So you won't see the cardinal stars and know who it is! That would sort of give it all away.

While we're talking about cardinal eyes... Is it the full eye including the whites, (which is why sienna couldn't go out until special contact lens had been made) or is it just the iris that shows as 'cardinal'?

@Wrayth,
I always got the impression that it's the entire eye that is black with the stars scatter about it.

It is kinda scary if the whole eye would be black. Or not? I think that only the iris is black. That would look much better!

@ Nalini
Please, could you clarify this issue for us?

Heart of Obsidian...the Obsidian archive...I can't wait to know who the ghost is! I think the cover is fitting. I could see that man as the ghost. He has a Slavic look to me, and since Kaleb is Russian and Vasic is (I assume) some kind of Eastern European.... Then again, maybe they just chose the cover model because he's gorgeous!

I have my own theories of who the hero of Heart of Obsidian and one of the things that popped through my mind was - how is the Gollancz cover going to be?. Now I know - very clever Gollancz. Well done.
Nalini mentioned that there were clues in the American cover but I'd say this whole cover is not even a clue - it's the confirmation.
