Well, we have a title. What do you think? I mean, just from what's happened in the first 3 books.

It feels like a really lame pun of a name.

It might describe (vaguely) what happens in the novel, but it's lame still. In my opinion they should really ditch these names with multiple interpretations, because they are getting really old like this name shows.

I get concerned when they start titling books with one word. The authors tend to start over-thinking it.

Well most people like Traitor from the NJO and that was one word. My complaint would be the authors limiting themselves to one word titles.

So... apparentley Tahiri will be on the cover of this one. It's been a long time since we've had a picture of her so I'm looking forward to it- especially if she's in bounty hunter armour. Cool This makes me think the title is referring to Tahiri feeling guilty about something, either leaving the Order or joining with Caedus.

Yay for Tahiri! Hopefully this means her character will actually be explored.

I'm thinking the title now means that Tahiri will be convicted of Palleon's murder. Who knows, if she gets executed then maybe she'll finally get to be with Anakin agian, which is all she wants.

Aw, I don't want her to be executed. Bad enough that they spent so much time in the NJO having her overcome her "shaping" and all only to have her slip back into her "Anakin-is-dead-wow-is-me" characterization in Legacy.

I forgot all about that. I'd rather Tahiri escapes and is just on the run. That and being a bounty hunter go hand-in-hand. Cool

Well the second definition for conviction is:

2 a : the act of convincing a person of error or of compelling the admission of a truth b : the state of being convinced of error or compelled to admit the truth

So this could be the Sith fessing up to the truth, or Vestara, and perhaps some further development of a realtionship with Ben and Vestara. Though I'd personally prefer said relationship never happens. But as vague as all the title usually are, who knows.

I'm looking forward to see the Tahiri cover... she really needs an updated image! I think the last one ws when she was a teenager.

I just hope they don't kill her...

There's also "A conviction is a strongly held belief that is arrived at after considering personal experiences and any external inputs that may have been encountered"(Wikipedia).

I think it's a mix of Tahiri been convicted and likely being killed and other characters - or, perhaps even Tahiri - standing up for things they believe in. Tahiri might even end up being a martyr for the Jedi, poor girl.

^Rouge77 from NJOE ? (Hello ! Smile )

It is likely to do with Tahiri, since she's on the cover. But I did not even think about the other meaning of convivtion ^^; It could be different from her being convicted.
