Fans Design Blood Omen 5 Cover (Georgian version)
As per my annual tradition, I'm getting my fans to come up with ideas for the next book cover ahead of the Halloween release of the Georgian version of Blood Omen 5: The Balance. A lot of scales so far (taking the idea of 'balance' literally!) but also some other incredible, beautifully drawn images, too.
What 'The Balance' means to me
The Balance is what the vampires (mostly the Ko-eks) use to refer to the point when humans and vampires can live in co-existence; the earth is no longer being harmed by human misdeeds and the vampires no longer have to hide in the shadows. The Apophi don't seek a balance; they seek total domination. The Drog'han are also hungry for dominance, but don't wish the annihilation of Mankind, while the Ko-eks remain passive and hidden. The Prophecy stands at the centre of all, though. David knows it. Dea and her Coven are slaves to it. One way or another, the world is going to change.
A brief word on Blood Omen 5: The Balance
The last of the saga, it was a hard one to write, though it took just over a year, like the 4th. It's actually divided into parts because I wanted to reveal more about Apophis himself and the making of the Prophecy. I also needed to jump from Dea's pregnancy to when her child is the age seen in her vision of the Prophecy. So there is present (pregnant Dea, ongoing war, a few deaths of loved ones), a jump back 2000 years to ancient Egypt, then a jump forward to the 'present' where Dea's Prophecy child is 6-years-old.
So, with all that in mind, if YOU have an idea for how the 5th book cover should look, send a PM to BloodOmenSaga (and Like the page while you're there)! You can also check out the latest news and offers here.
Now to the covers. I love them all- they show each fan's personal love and understanding of the Blood Omen Saga. But only one can win. Which would YOU choose? Or would you design something totally different? COMMENT below! DEADLINE for entries: May 1, 2018.
