I love the cover I agree his name could be a little smaller and glad that TOR has bought four books of this series can't wait to dig into to it...

The art is amazing, but isn't the name oversized? Instead of making epic name and middle-sized title, it should be the other way around, I think.

So, I was surfing around Book Depository, and stumbled across this:
http://www.bookdepository.com/book/9780575097353/The-Way-of-Kings

I'm assuming it's the UK cover, but I'm not sure. Reminds me of the UK Mistborn covers, actually...

Looks to be done by the same artist who did the Mistborn series.  It isn't amazing, but I think it is better than the US version.  I may just import it.

I can't say I like it. The details are wrong.

The plate seems to be OK, except the helm seems off.  The sword is way off I agree.

His right hand seems to have way smaller fingers than his left hand. That's been bugging me for weeks.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!
