Over at the YA YA YAs, Tricia spotted that the blurb of A Conspiracy of Kings (coming 3/23/10) has changed since its first incarnation. It is even more to squee for now. Here's what it says on its page in the HarperCollins catalogue:
"Sophos, heir to Sounis, doesn’t look like much of a prince. At least, according to those in power. At least, to those who do not know him or the size of his heart and the depth of his courage, loyalty, and love. But Helen, Queen of Eddis, knows him, and so does Gen, the queen’s Thief, who is now King of Attolia. Gen and the queen believe that Sophos is dead. But they also believe in hope, especially since a body was never found. So when Sophos is discovered in Attolia, climbing a lamppost, peashooter in hand, the obvious question becomes: where has Sophos been all this time?"
The cover has also changed. Sophos, with eye cropped off and beard added, looks much less elfin. You can see the first one here.
Update (7/22): Greenwillow, perhaps consternated by the wild speculation on Sounis (The Queen's Thief Livejournal community) regarding the peashooter and the lamppost, has removed this part of the blurb...
