I don't think the cover is bad at all. Sure, it wasn't exactly in line with my conceptions, but it is well within tolerances. I'm groovy there. The plot summary doesn't seem bad either, but it alone is not enough to make me break my habit of reading no books that take place after Vector Prime. This pirate has love interest written all over her, but that could be alright I suppose. At the very least it would be far better than the worst of my fears. I'll keep my eye on the coalition and see what others think of it. If it gets positive reviews I could be moved to spending my cash.
