I like the layout better but Mara looked significantly better on the first cover (which isn't saying much). She looks anime on this cover. Confused

Looks more like Final Fantasy-style if you ask me.

You can see some cool concept art and sneak peek at the back cover too at the Suvudu website.

And yes, Skuldren, she does look like Sandra Bullock.

I like this cover better, but Mara looks too old to be 19, and they got the hair color wrong...again.

She seems to be depicted consistently in her late 20s early 30s lol.

Her hair might be because of the purple light from the lightsaber.

Yes, ten times better. Will be purchasing this one in paperback for sure.

Is it me, or does she look like Dark Jedi Barbie?

THANK YOU. I couldn't figure out just what was bothering me about this cover. You put it into words precisely!

I think Pellaeon would have made for a sexier cover tbh.

She does look a bit like a video game graphic, but I still think it's an improvement.

I'll admit, Mara looks better, but I just don't like the whole army of stormies and that Star Destroyer in the background. The story is partially about the Hand of Judgement, and that's why I love the hardback cover, it's Mara and five Stormies, not a whole army (Which I don't really remember reading about in the novel.

Those would be awesome! They would be the first and only Barbies I would choose to own. To express this in clarified terms:

At the age of 7, I had a nice sized birthday party with all of my little girl friends. But also present, of course, was my best friend Trip. We had known each other since the age of 3, and knew everything about each other's likes and dislikes, understandably. As I opened a Barbie from one of these little girl friends, Trip chose that moment to speak up quite audibly to the entire party, "But Elyse doesn't like Barbies!" And yes, we caught it all on the dinosaur video camera we were proud to have in the 90s. It is a cherished moment, and one that I find amusing to this day. Smile

Now I want a whole line of Mara, Leia, and Padme Barbies in various outfits.
