Comments: A nice example of a story-related image.  This is a wrap-around cover, showing the alien landscape and one of the "icons".  Only two problems: this planet did not have any clouds, and where are the trees?
Contents: Complete novel
My cover rating: ★★★☆☆ Suitably strange image for a borderline fantasy novel.
