Night Angel Omnibus: 10th Anniversary Cover

We are all excited to reveal the cover for the 10th Anniversary Hardcover edition of The Night Angel Trilogy! Without further ado:

The cover, designed by Lauren Panepinto, is blacker-than-black, as it were: the page edges are dyed black, and there’s a great visual effect when you view the cover from different angles.

I’m so happy that Orbit didn’t simply repackage the old Night Angel art, great as it was. When it hit, those covers were a big gamble, as they were so different from the narrative covers that dominated the shelves. I truly believe that the stark central figure against the simple white background had no small part in getting a lot of people (maybe even you!) to pick up my work for the first time. Thus, Orbit’s art was integral to me getting to do the work I love even to this day, and for that reason, it will always be very, very close to my heart.

But now, ten years on, so many people have loved that art style that it’s been imitated many times, so a re-issue with the original art would fit in, rather than stand out. And let’s be honest, Durzo Blint only fits in when he wants to fit in. So I’m gratified that Orbit wasn’t contented to do the same old thing, and are instead innovating as they so often do, while still staying true to the spirit of the work.

Oh, you want one? I have good news! BARNES & NOBLE  has again partnered with Orbit (and my now-cramped hand, ouch) to offer a limited run of these omnibuses SIGNED, for no extra cost. The pre-order page is live now HERE (U.S. only, sorry.) As I’m currently using every day to sprint toward the earth-shattering finish of THE BURNING WHITE, I won’t be touring for this release. So, if you’re in the US and you want your Night Angel hardcover omnibus signed, this is your best chance. Stock is limited, and B&N does usually sell out, so if you’re on the fence, go ahead and borrow the money from that friendly loanshark. I’m sure it’ll all work out fine!

If you want to pre-order a copy but aren’t in the US, you can grab one from any of these fine retailers:

    I just pre-ordered from Barnes&Noble and they do international orders. So for a little bit of extra postage one can get the signed edition even over here in Europe. The cover looks awesome btw.

      Just devoured this trilogy and novella again. Love both this and the Black Prism series and hope more is on the way! Would love even more stories about Durzo, Ezra, The Hunter, and Kylar.

    Hey Sonja, this is great news! … But let me do some checking on this. As I recall, when we did signed editions of The Blood Mirror, some European orders that went through their system got cancelled at the last minute. However, I did hear this morning from a German fan who said she Was Shipped a signed copy of Perfect Shadow. I’ll see if I can get answers from Barnes & Noble. I’d hate for you and others to be disappointed by cancelled orders.

      I also ordered a signed copy from B&N and it went through with international shipping. Hope it doesn’t get cancelled!

    I ordered the book to replace my badly work book set and when I got it I tore into the story as if it were brand new, enjoying my reunion of these amazing characters…..until I got to chapter 88, page 1138 of book three. It is missing 88-97!!!!! It skips from page 1138 to 1171! How did this happen? There are no tears or rips in the binding.

      Hey Kenny,

      Thanks for the heads up. We will look into this for sure.

    There are some missing chapters in the third book in this addition. It goes from chapter 16 back to chapter 10-16 then picks up at ch 25 on pg 887. Is there a way to read ch 17-24 with out buying another copy of book 3?

    1. The Dread Pirate CAPSLOCK says:

      Hi Amy,

      Sounds like you received a copy that was bound incorrectly. This happens from time to time (one other fan mentioned this happening to their copy as well). You should be able to take back to the retailer where you bought it and ask to exchange for a different copy. You can email me at admin at brentweeks dot com if you continue to have problems. Thanks!
