Official Blurb for The Soul Key

I just found the final official blurb for The Soul Key will looking around on the S&S site, and since I don't think this one has been posted yet, here it is:
There is a void in the alternate universe that demands to be filled. Iliana Ghemor, the Cardassian operative who years ago was altered in both body and mind to replace Kira Nerys, dreams of fulfilling a prophecy that will mark her as the one true Emissary of that other reality -- a messianic figure who could lead her followers into an era of renewed hope...or an age of deepening darkness.
Ghemor's claim to the mantle of the Emissary is by no means certain, however, as the inexorable pull of providence tugs also at other souls who are swept into the vortex of the Prophets, the remote and timeless beings who have set these strange events in motion.
But the stakes are higher than anyone imagines: for the outcome of this struggle for the fate of one universe will ripple across many others, and become the key to unlocking a future that will prove to be the greatest trial yet for the heroes of station Deep Space 9.
Definitely sounds good to me. I can't wait.
If it has been posted already feel free to close the thread.

That mostly translates into exactly what I was expecting to happen, with enough wiggle room left to surprise me.

I'm out of a job and saving pennies, so Star Trek is my only vice.

I can't wait for this to come out.

Any word on whether they're replacing that cover? Most of the novels look gorgeous now, but that one just looked so cheap - especially compared to the one for The Never Ending Sacrifice.

I'm sure that's the final cover art. But I agree the artwork for Never-Ending Sacrifice is great!

Can't wait till both books are on my shelf.

Definitely. I'd love to have a full poster-sized version of the NES cover without the text! As for the TSK cover...

I love the cover. Anything with the wormhole on it will look awesome and its nice to see the Orb fragment (paghvaram/soul key) from "The Storyteller" on the cover.

The Soul Key's cover is good, but TNES' is awesome. I'd love it to be in the 2010 Ships of the Line calendar.

Re: Official Blurb for The Soul Key

IMO the design for the Soul Key cover is pretty good, it's just the exacution that could have been better. Which is rather disapointing since most of the recent covers, including TNES, have been incredible. Same goes for Losing the Peace, I mean what is up with Picard's pants?
