“This book will blow your mind”

Or at least, that’s what I was told. But seriously, you’ve got to see it to believe it. Lucasfilm has got a real powerhouse on this one…

JADED CONQUEST

Well ladies, all of you who complain there’s not enough sex mush in Star Wars… I’m afraid you’re going to get it. With a vengeance.

    I wish they could have gotten Stephenie Meyer instead, but I guess she’s too big for Star Wars.

    Wow. This is going to be….ehm….interesting. In so many ways. Hopefully she goes for the same style she took up for the first few books of her series (i.e., Anita still saving herself), instead of the later ones which are basically just porn with a little story thrown in.

    Hrm…hope this is more like the early books. I -um-heard things about her later ones.

    Still it’s more Mara. I may have to read it anyway. Ooo, maybe there’ll actually be some pre-engagement romantic tension between Luke and Mara. That would so rock.

    I loved Luke when I was younger, but now I know better.

    Laurell K. Hamilton? Are you guys NUTS? This is just more proof that Del Rey DOESN’T GET IT. First they kill Mara, and now they’re going to let LKH turn her into a raging slut? I AM DONE.

    Well, except for Republic Commando: Tipoca Thunder. But after that, Del Rey is getting no more of my money!

    given Hamilton’s Blake series tend to use titles that are also key place names in the book.. what type of establishment is “Jaded Conquest” ;)

    Yikes, they are letting LKH have a go at Mara? Scary thought. I used to love LKH before she turned into a pornster, sigh.

    Guys, I’m pretty sure this is an April Fool’s joke. Like when a few years back they claimed that Willow was going to be a part of the SW universe.

    I was actually looking forward to reading a new book about Mara until I remembered that this is April Fools Day.

    Nice April Fools joke…

    I wouldn’t have approved anyway. Star Wars is not about sex…there’s plenty of that out there.

    These comments are hilarious. I think a Judy Blume novel about Jaina would have been better.
    I have to admit that the tinkering with the NJO timeline joke was a lot more surprising.

    SHE IS A VAMPIRE!!! HOW ELSE CAN SHE BE 68 OR WHATEVER AND STILL LOOKS LIKE SHE IS ON HIGH SCHOOL? THAT’S HER M.O., SHE STICK HERSELF WITH THE MOST POWERFUL MAN SHE CAN FIND AND SUCKS THE LIFE OUT OF THEM. I BET SHE DATED A LOT OF GUYS BETWEEN THE EMPEROR AND LUKE THAT COULD SUPPLY HER WITH ENERGY……………………….

    Good thing this is april fool’s… I think I would throw up if there was a star wars romance. I also think I would kill myself before I read anything Stephenie Meyer writes
