Yesterday Sue Rostini confirmed on the starwars.com forums that the last three books in the Fate of the Jedi series will have a darker color scheme on the front and back covers. This is in response to the release from Random House that stated the following…

“NEW PACKAGING: While we’re keeping the look of the nine-book series consistent, we’re giving the last three books (starting with Conviction, Summer 2011) a distinctive look to set these final novels apart as a climactic mini-trilogy for readers.”

This had some people guessing on what the change might be, however, our readers already knew this. In our exclusive interview with Fate of the Jedi cover artist Ian Keltie, Mr. Keltie revealed:

“LucasFilms wanted the final three (novels) to stay in the style but look different from the previous six. The black background helps the darker feel. I think these final three (Conviction, Ascension, and Apocalypse) are more what the Star Wars fans are used to rather than the earlier books.”

In case you missed it, you can read the full interview here.

Sue also responded to another question on the forums that might interest readers.When asked about Daala being overthrown and whether this would happen in Conviction or in between books, Sue stated the following…

“Yes, it happens within the pages of one of the books. I can’t think of which one — they all run together for me.”

Since the blurb for Conviction states that Daala has been overthrown, this would mean that Daala’s ousting from office will happen somewhere in the book.

Feel free to discuss these issues and others in the forums.
