The Lost Metal US Cover Revealed!


The official US cover for the fourth Wax and Wayne book is here! The US publisher, Tor, have officially released the cover for The Lost Metal, designed and created by the talented Chris McGrath. This is the second of Brandon’s big publishers to release a cover design, with the UK cover being revealed on May 18th.  As a reminder, the book releases November 15th in the UK and US (release dates in other regions and languages vary by publisher). Generally, hardcover, audiobook, and eBook are released at about the same time, and the US paperback a year later.

Links to pre-order The Lost Metal from US retailers can be found in the Tor article

In Tor’s announcement, Chris goes into some detail about how he found Brandon’s books and it is equal parts adorable and relatable. Turns out Chris got as sucked in by Mistborn just like the rest of us.

    I remember it was about fifteen years ago I came across the hardcover of the first Mistborn book while cruising the sci fi/fantasy section at Barnes and Noble. The darkly fantastic Jon Foster cover had drawn me in at the time and had piqued my curiosity about the book further, so I decided to look up the author and some reviews.  It sounded right up my alley and I had been looking for a fantasy series to read that was a bit different, so I bought the book. Just a few chapters in and I thought to myself, that I would have loved  to have done the covers for these books. As if the “fantasy gods” had heard my prayers…I was offered the chance to work on the paperback editions of the books. I was so excited and as it turns out, insanely lucky as well, to have had the chance to work on this series in Brandon’s truly epic world. Being able to do seven covers for this series has been a dream and so enjoyable. Again, I’ve been very lucky to have worked on a series of this magnitude, so I’d like to thank Brandon and everyone at Tor for this opportunity.

Oooh, I like this one!  The warm tones look really good, and I have a feeling just thinking about the previous covers that the lineup will look nice.  

I also really like Wax's coat.  I may need to make that...

Considering how the covers of the last three really match the story, I'm really excited about the color choice.

Easily my favorite of the four, although I'm not a fan of the pseudo photo realistic art style when it comes to book covers. (That said, it does fit the pulpy style of the stories.) The characters definitely look like themselves though, and Wayne doesn't have a gun this time around, which is also worth something :D

The fact that there's sparks in the sky makes me a bit concerned for Elendel though!

Mysterious offworlders that will save Scadrial at "any cost"... sounds like a hint towards a certain group on Roshar led by a man with that specific philosophy and obsession
