I can't believe we didn't have a thread for this novel yet!

You can discuss the eighth book in the series here, and the latest news, including the cover that was revealed today: http://www.eucantina.net/archives/10027

Ben and Vestara look entirely different than they did on the covers of Backlash and Omen, respectively.

I dunno, Ben looks pretty similar to the way he did on the Backlash cover to me, albeit with better hair. I thought Vestara was Tahiri for a moment. Confused

Overall, I like it.

That's what I thought too! As much as I like the Ben/Vestara subplot, I was hoping that Ascension would feature different characters. Was anyone else hoping for more character diversity on these covers?

I actually really like this one. I thought I wouldn't, and I still wanna see the back of Conviction, but this is honestly my favorite so far cover-wise

I like the STYLE, but not the characters used. Why are we recycling so many characters? When are the montage covers coming back?

(NJO fo life!)

I agree there, but I love the cover otherwise. Well done. Cool

I'm rather pleased that we finally got a clear face-shot of Ben.

Well, yes, it's a little bit superfluous, but all in all I quite like the styling of it.

I'm absolutely loving Ben! Maybe not the 90s mullet going on, but we can't seem to get away from that, so...what's a fan to do?

I also thought, at first glance, that it was Tahiri on the cover. However, it's obviously Vestara, though I liked her much better on Omen.

Overally, though, great cover. Totally wish someone else was on the cover, especially Jaina, but alas. It seems that such is never to happen. Just happy for a decent illustration of Ben, I suppose.

Back cover revealed today. Possible spoiler for Conviction, I suppose? View at you own risk.

This fanboy is HAPPY! Very Happy

I'm very satisfied with how FOTJ keeps getting better and better. They seem to be reading my mind and giving me everything I want.

Hmm, I better smash my ego before it attacks me.
