    Also, note the lack of "Empire and Rebellion". No more SWEARHAT.

    New characters on a Star Wars cover? This hasn't happened since...Scoundrels! Han books must bring out the best in illustrators.

    Here's the catch- her name is Scarlet Hark. [face_plain]

    I may be missing something..."Scarlet" I get, she has red hair. What's wrong with her name being Scarlet Hark, though?

    I dunno. It's too... kitschy or something. OTOH it's also very pulpy, so that might be a good sign.

    Who wants to bet Han flirts with her a lot to make Leia jealous?

    Yeah, sounds like a Bond girl name, though that could end up being a good thing. I'm still choosing to be very optimistic about this book.

    !?

    What the frack is that?

    It looks like a half-decent cover! Surely not?

    Gut feeling: no EAR = bad news for the Luke book.

    Either that or RE's sales just weren't good enough to conflate the others with it.

    Han had a thing with redheads, I've heard. Or had - before he met Leia - and Luke married Mara.

    Don't - don't say this... It's been my feeling all the time - and I hope desperately for the Luke book!!!! :(

    Luke had a few bad experiences with redheads before he met Mara.

    To the point that in Luke Skywalker & The Shadows of Mindor he says "I don't like redheads."

    Am I the only one who thinks Scarlet Hark looks like Lindsay Lohan?

    The Cover post on the Star Wars Books Facebook page says Scarlet is a brunette not redhead. I thought she was a redhead as well.

    That said, I'm into the story do far, but Han is the Character I love the most. The more well done Han Stories, the better. And I did like Scoundrels.
    I'm hoping for another piece of artwork depicting a scene in the book like we got for Razors Edge. But I'd kill to just change the vest for Han's Empire jacket. Give some variety!!!

    What happens if she's about to be mugged by some drifter?

    "Hark! A vagrant!"

    What is this "honor"? Why is it among thieves? So many questions! Life is just one big question.
