On June 16, two weeks from today, the Illustrated Edition of Royal Assassin will be published!
Revealed today is Nighteyes, a beloved character first introduced in Royal Assassin. The artwork is by Magali Villeneuve. This French artist (and friend) is best known for her work on Magic the Gathering, but has also created artwork for The Lord of the Ring, Game of Thrones, books by Brandon Sanderson and Dungeons and Dragons. A visit to her website is highly recommended!
Royal Assassin is the second volume of the Farseer Trilogy. The first book, Assassin's Apprentice, is already available in a handsome matching volume, also illustrated by Magali Villeneuve. Assassin's Quest, the concluding volume, will be issued in a matching binding and also with Magali's illustrations. This is the first time that all three volumes of the trilogy will be available in matching hardbacks in the US.
And yes, there will be a UK edition, also with the Magali Villeneuve illustrations, from Harper Voyager.
