Cover art and blurb for L. E. Modesitt, jr.'s LADY-PROTECTOR

Here's the blurb:

A new novel of Mykella, the young woman introduced inThe Lord-Protector’s Daughter. Though a bloody coup has made Mykella ruler of her land, it has left her and her two sisters bereft of family and uncertain of their friends. Worse, an examination of the nation’s accounts reveals that their country is almost destitute. Plus, there are rumblings of war along the borders. With no money and few allies, Mykella is faced with the difficult prospect of rebuilding her nation while trying to hold off a potentially devastating invasion.

Fortunately for Mykella, an old magic has awakened in her; a power that gives her the ability to read the emotions of others and to spy on the movements of her enemies. But the resurgence of this power might herald the return of an ancient enemy, one that Mykella isn’t sure how to face.

L.E. Modesitt, Jr. returns to the world of The Corean Chronicles with a novel filled with politics, adventure, magic, and romance

I've seen much worse, but that's an awfully dull cover. I wouldn't even pick that up to check out the blurb in a store.

That's not recluse. It's the same artist who has done art for the previous seven books in this series.
