A New Look for Choices of One

The Official Star Wars Blog has posted a first look at the new cover for the paperback edition of Choices of One by Timothy Zahn. Following the precedent for variant covers set by Red Harvest and The Courtship of Princess Leia, the new version of Choices of One still features Mara Jade, but this time in front of what looks to be an entire legion of stormtroopers, not to mention a Star Destroyer. The image is interesting, and it's also nice to get more pictures of Mara Jade (especially where she's wearing sleeves). Still, there's something about this image that seems a little...off to me. Perhaps it's that the new Mara looks older than what she should be during this timeframe (18), or that her face looks a little bit too animated for my tastes. Or perhaps I've just been spoiled by the images of her from the Japanese covers of the New Jedi Order series, that always resonated with me. The paperback edition of Choices of One is due for release June 26, 2012.
