Cover Art! 'Koko Takes A Holiday' - Kieran Shea

Because sometimes you don't need to write a lengthy post saying what is was about the 'shading of the fonts' or 'the way that the hero's sword was drawn just so' that attracted you to the cover art of a book. Sometimes, the cover art itself seems to say... "just post me on your blog and say nothing else, everyone will understand my awesomeness as soon as they gaze on me." That's what happened with the cover art for 'Koko Takes A Holiday' so I'm going to post the picture and let it speak for itself (ok, I will probably leave a little smiley underneath it)


I've had a little read of the blurb and have adjusted the reading pile accordingly (I doubt that I will ever finish reading 'The Godwhale' at this rate, need to give myself a bit of a talking to there), have a look for yourself...

Five hundred years from now, ex-corporate mercenary Koko Martstellar is swaggering through an easy early retirement as a brothel owner on The Sixty Islands, a manufactured tropical resort archipelago known for its sex and simulated violence. Surrounded by slang-drooling boywhores and synthetic komodo dragons, Koko finds the most challenging part of her day might be deciding on her next drink. That is, until her old comrade Portia Delacompte sends a squad of security personnel to murder her.

What do you reckon? I'm definitely having a read.


  1. I felt the same way, this was such a fun cover. It made my list of covers that caught my attention from the June SFF releases.

  2. The inside is just as good :o)
