I was staring and staring at this cover, and mostly liking it?, but I couldn't figure out who the dude on the front reminded me of . . . and then it hit me. Abel Magwitch from Great Expectations. Right as he's meeting Pip for the first time. Yup. Nailed it. (Makes sense, I guess, assuming that the dude on the cover is supposed to be Kaladin.)
I would complain more about having to wait until March for this, but we'll get at least a hundred other new Sanderson books by then, so I think I'll survive.
