It’s that time again! Time to highlight some of my favorite fantasy covers!
This time I’m just highlighting a few covers which caught my attention recently. No real theme. I just really liked these covers when I saw them. In fact, several of the books are from series I’m familiar with and have no interest in reading, but I still need to give them love for the great eye-candy.
If anyone has read any of these book, let us know, because I’d sure we’d all love to know if they are actually worth giving a try.
