That is pretty awesome - though I think Ventress looks much better without hair.

Still haven't decided whether I'm going to be reading any of these new books. If enough people here start reading, I might jump on the bandwagon.

Ventress with hair ain't so bad.

My friends have pretty much banned me from getting new books until my To Read box is down to five, so I'm not sure if I will be allowed to. Which is a shame, because I was looking forward to the Tarkin novel, and to a slightly lesser degree, A New Dawn. But this Ventress/Vos book just doesn't interest me.

TCW sparked an interest in Ventress so I'm fully onboard with this one. Honestly, I don't care about Quinlan Vos. I just hope they don't kill her. Dave Filoni's concept sketches show a scene where it looks like they kill her. Crying or Very sad

Even if I wasn't abstaining from anything that won't be referenced 20 years from now, surferdude Vos would not entice my reading.

I definitely love Ventress...but I always found her being a bit pushed around by Dooku, and she has so much potential on her own. So yeah, will be interesting to know what will be disclosed about Asajj.

By the end, a bit out of topic, but sucked the way Dooku died...it would be so much fun if it would have been killed in some kind of trap/backstab/show of superiority way...and this would have been great in the EU. But oh well

The hair confused me at first. I thought this is going to be set after the Clone wars, but then I've read this from multiple sources: "new novel featuring unfinished scripts from Star Wars: The Clone Wars."

It's all the same for me though. I'll decide whether to read it or not, after it comes out.

The unfinished scripts would presumably come after "The Clone Wars" as a series as the episodes have been airing in order since part way through season 3. It's probably just a weird thing with word choice.

I am all about this one, Ventress is a great character. I don't know enough about Voss to really care much his way. The hair looks like the scenes in the CW when they showed her back story. Hopefully this isn't a sneaky middle of her life story, I want to see what's going on in her life post CW. Voss makes sense if it is an early "Dark Times" story.....even though him surviving 66 isn't canon anymore?
