Well? Are you ready? Are you sitting down? Because this is a fantastic cover for a fantastic book.
Titan Magic: Body and Soul follows Lamm’s 2011 masterpiece, Titan Magic, which I reviewed a while ago. And Lamm has outdone herself. Trust me, I know – I had the honor of prereading this one, and it’s beautiful. It does follow Titan Magic, though, so you really need to pick up a copy of that one ASAP, the better to enjoy Body and Soul THE MOMENT IT COMES OUT (on 13 December, according to its Goodreads page).
Designed by Abigail Larson for Jodi Lamm’s upcoming release, Titan Magic: Body and Soul, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cover that fits the story more perfectly.
“Don’t fool yourself. Fool everyone else, but never fool yourself.”When a young golem called Kaspar befriends a beautiful baker and her daughter, he wishes, for the first time in his life, to be more than just a counterfeit, wooden child. But such a simple wish comes at a high price, and Kaspar won’t be the only one to pay. With the few who can stop him distracted by their own dreams, Kaspar is free to set in motion a naive and gruesome plan. He hasn’t gone entirely unnoticed, though. He’s a powerful weapon left alone and ungoverned, and he’s already caught the eye of someone with an even more costly wish.
