Cover art for Joe Abercrombie's A LITTLE HATRED revealed

Joe Abercrombie has unveiled the cover art for A Little Hatred, the first book in the The Age of Madness, the sequel trilogy to his First Law series.

The cover blurb is as follows:
“The chimneys of industry rise over Adua and the world seethes with new opportunities. But old scores run deep as ever.
On the blood-soaked borders of Angland, Leo dan Brock struggles to win fame on the battlefield, and defeat the marauding armies of Stour Nightfall. He hopes for help from the crown. But King Jezal’s son, the feckless Prince Orso, is a man who specialises in disappointments.
Savine dan Glokta – socialite, investor, and daughter of the most feared man in the Union – plans to claw her way to the top of the slag-heap of society by any means necessary. But the slums boil over with a rage that all the money in the world cannot control.
The age of the machine dawns, but the age of magic refuses to die. With the help of the mad hillwoman Isern-i-Phail, Rikke struggles to control the blessing, or the curse, of the Long Eye. Glimpsing the future is one thing, but with the guiding hand of the First of the Magi still pulling the strings, changing it will be quite another…”

The book will be published on 19 September 2019. The second and third books in the trilogy, The Trouble with Peace and The Beautiful Machine, will follow in September 2020 and 2021 respectively.

Cool! I'm sure the cover COULD change by the time I get it in 2021 soonest (likely 2022, due to paperback format).
