I agree with Mara. This cover is just more disturbing to me than the Deathtroopers one. I guess because the Sith looks....possessed, I guess. Confused


It actually has the standard Sith eyes. Really the only thing that makes it look any different is the blood on the mouth, and since its zombie that makes sense to me. The Fatal Alliance cover was just as dark and eerie but because it wasn't zombie it gets less flak.

Is that Sith a "Zombie"? Couldn't it be just the Sith Academy's master we know from an early blurb? Infected, yes - I think that can be assumed - but he does look very much alive still.

Looks good to me. Definitely conveys "horror" and "zombie" even if the Sith isn't technically a zombie. I could see this cover grabbing people's attention as they walk by in the book store.

Wow, congratz on a decent blurb, Del Rey! I've been disappointed several times recently, but this one gets me excited! Very Happy

So, when is Enough is Enough when it comes to releasing preview chapters for a book? They've released FOUR chapters so far. When they got to three, I thought that was pushing it. I really, truly did not believe they would post any more.

But now they're at four.

Anyone want to take bets that they'll release five?

Enough is already enough. I was singing their praises with the first release, because it was such a short chapter and such a nice teaser. But now? It's aggravating. I don't understand Del Rey's marketing strategies anymore. Confused

LOL, you know what they would do? They'd post everything except the last chapter in order to make us buy the book. Laughing

And we'd grab it off the shelves like freakin star wars rats and take it to the corner and read it while calling it 'the precious'

Yeah, pretty much. We'd also mutter about "filthy nasty publishers" and how they tried to "steal it from us, yes they did". Wink

And then we'd have read the final chapter without paying for the novel and walk out the store like we're bloody yoda and we just confused them with our jedi mind trick Wink
