I'm down to a mere ten books gotten at ALA, and so for most I don't even remember the cover. The other day, I pulled Tempest, by Julie Cross off the pile... and promptly screamed "aaarrgh". Then I took a photo of the cover and complained to Aravis; I then decided to share my dismay with all of you. Note: this is my reaction to the cover, without having read the book. My reaction to the book was actually far better!
- "A major success already in the making" - say whaaa??? How can it be a success in the making? Aren't you a success after you've been made???
- The only way Summit Entertainment could "pre-empt" something is if they advertised Film A and then when audiences went in, surprise: It's Tempest! What they mean is "Optioned by Summit Entertainment". Seriously bad use of the language.
- "epic trilogy" - unless I'm really wrong, this could have been edited down to one really good book. Plus "epic"? Trust me, it's not on the scale of LoTR or the Iliad. Now those were epics. Even GWTW is an epic. This? No.
