The Book Of The Ice: 'The Girl And The Stars' By Mark Lawrence Gets An Official Cover

Mark Lawrence is such a prolific author. This year alone he has published 4 equally entertaining and exciting reads. He's been consistent on delivering very good stories and so hearing that he'll be publishing new books makes me excited. Next year we can expect more starting with the first book in his new The Book of the Ice series titled The Girl and the Stars.

The official cover for the said book has been unveiled and the art direction is making it consistent with the covers of the Book of the Ancestor series. Both series have something to do with the same icy post-apocalyptic setting, so I am guessing they are related or interconnected. We have Bastien Lecouffe Deharme (for this stunning artwork--he also did the art for the said previous series) and the art department of Ace, especially Judith Lagerman for art direction, to thank for how this cover turned out to be.

Check out the official cover of The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence.

The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence


A stunning new epic fantasy series following a young outcast who must fight with everything she has to survive, set in the same world as Red Sister.

In the ice, east of the Black Rock, there is a hole into which broken children are thrown. Yaz’s people call it the Pit of the Missing and now it is drawing her in as she has always known it would.

To resist the cold, to endure the months of night when even the air itself begins to freeze, requires a special breed. Variation is dangerous, difference is fatal. And Yaz is not the same.

Yaz’s difference tears her from the only life she’s ever known, away from her family, from the boy she thought she would spend her days with, and has to carve out a new path for herself in a world whose existence she never suspected. A world full of difference and mystery and danger.

Yaz learns that Abeth is older and stranger than she had ever imagined. She learns that her weaknesses are another kind of strength and that the cruel arithmetic of survival that has always governed her people can be challenged.

The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence will be released on April 21, 2020.
