Today arrived my copy of Pocket Books Fall 2007 Catalog from Simon & Schuster Publisher. The book description and book cover are shown in the catalog. The book cover shows an artwork from artist Glenn Rane featuring a similar theme with half-face of a woman and the other half of a female dark templar.
The novel is scheduled by November 27, 2007 and contains 384 pages. Author: Christie Golden.
The book description is as follows:
The second novel of an epic trilogy set in the world of Blizzard Entertainment’s bestselling Starcraft video game.
Archeologist Jacob Ramsey has spent the last two years on a fruitless excavation. It seems like a miracle when he gets an invitation to join an elite group of archeologists in the excavation of one of the Xel’Naga artifacts that are suddenly appearing on various worlds. When Jake stumbles across a dying Protoss and attempts to revive him, the alien psychically and violently begins to “upload” its memories, essentially rewriting and rewiring Jake’s human brain. Jake soon learns a terrible secret—one so important that the dying alien was willing to pass it on to an enemy in order to ensure that the knowledge survives. And what Jakes decides to do with the information will seal the fate of worlds throughout the galaxy.
This description is kinda similar to book one’s. I assume it is a placeholder replacement. I will update if a new description is added in the upcoming months. And will provide the book cover image soon. The marketing info provided by the catalog says the novel will be showcased at BlizzCon 2007. Hopefully that means Christie Golden will be at the Pocket Books booth, book signing.
