I saw a picture of a novel trilogy on 9gag, and each book’s cover had a person in a hooded top pictured from the back. His face was partially visible as he was looking back. All 3 books had similar cover, though the person might change the pose slightly.

The person on the cover was pictured in grayscale except for some part which had a few colors like orange, green and blue. The background was white in color.

I don't quite remember, but the author's name had the word 'Freed' in it. The title was in English.

Anybody has any idea which novel is it?

  • What was the language of the novel? What was the country you saw this in? When did you see the covers? – O. R. Mapper Jan 23 '15 at 9:16

    @GuruGulabKhatri - modern or futuristic but not urban? Can you describe the hooded figure any better. Also, where/when did you see the picture on 9Gag? – Valorum Jan 23 '15 at 11:36

    especially considering how common/cliche the hooded figure is on fantasy book covers. – Trish Ling Jan 23 '15 at 14:34

    How long ago did you see this? Do you not have access to your browser history if it was recent? – Thebluefish Jan 23 '15 at 19:03


Do you mean The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks? I saw a post about it on 9gag a few days past. The covers are mostly white, and each show a hooded man in black clothing in various poses, with swirls of color.

  • Can you explain why you think this is the correct answer? – Reinstate Monica - Goodbye SE Jan 23 '15 at 12:49
  • @Angrist - your post doesn't quite answer the question. The OP has mentioned that the person on the cover is pictured from back, and also the picture was gray-scale, i.e. black n white. – Stark07 Jan 23 '15 at 12:49
  • @ash_k29 He only showed one of the 3 books. But one of the covers matches the description: blog.patrickrothfuss.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/… – Lyrion Jan 23 '15 at 15:14
  • Oh. that's great. The image you shared clears doubt. But still there's the small issue of "freed"..... – Stark07 Jan 23 '15 at 15:18

  2. The Novice

  3. The High Lord

  • I was thinking of this as well that's why I asked for a time frame :) – Dreamwalker Jan 23 '15 at 11:50
  • No, this is not the book I am searching. – GuruGulabKhatri Jan 23 '15 at 11:52

Reminds me of The Left Hand of God trilogy by Paul Hoffman (his name obviously doesn't have Freed in it though)

The Left Hand of God

The Last Four Things

The Beating of His Wings

Excellent original series though I struggled to get through the last one - binge read them though so maybe overdosed ;-)


Your description reminded me of this novel series.

  • Nope, this wasn't the novel. From the looks of the person in hooded top on the cover, it seemed to have been set in current time period or maybe future. – GuruGulabKhatri Jan 23 '15 at 9:50

The Painted Man by Peter V. Brett?
