Cover Breakdown: Terry Goodkind's SHROUD OF ETERNITY

Feeling a bit fantastical today? Us too! Which got us thinking about Terry Goodkind's Sister of Darkness series ... You see, Death's Mistress earned an RT Top Pick!, and it truly hooked us on this awesome fantasy series. When our eager little eyes spied the gorgeous cover art for the next book in the series, Shroud of Eternity, we knew it had to be the subject of today's cover breakdown. But before we get to the cover, let's take a look at the blurb: 

The formidable sorceress Nicci and her companions―the newly powerless Nathan and the youthful Bannon―set out on another quest after driving ruthless Norukai slavers out of Renda Bay. Their mission: restore Nathan’s magic and, for Nicci, save the world.

Guided by the witch-woman Red's mysterious prophecy, the trio makes their way south of Kol Adair towards a wondrous city shrouded behind time, Ildakar. But the grotesque omens on their path to Nathan's salvation―severed Norukai heads on pikes, a genetically modified monster, and a petrified army of half a million―are just a taste of the unimaginable horrors that await within the Shroud of Eternity.
