Barnes and Noble have that snappy little start that always grabs my attention.
I actually thought Lysaer might be trying to avoid a direct confrontation with Arithon this time, but still it sounds exciting, and goes well with the ending of the revised old blurb.
The first book in the fourth arc, Sword of the Canon, finds Arithon and Lysaer on an unstoppable path toward direct conflict.
Still ruled by the Mistwraith's curse, Lysaer will stop at nothing to find and destroy the newly freed Arithon.
I sent them an email telling them about the wrong cover and said Amazon has it right, why can't they? Jab, jab, lol.
Because that is the cover the publisher sent them and they probably will not change it till the publisher sends them a different cover. That Harper Collins UK has still not put a cover up does not help. And if you check either the UK or USA Amazon store, you will see only one version had the cover updated and the others now have no cover.
I got this reply from B&N:

Bit more coherent than the Amazon UK auto reply was, maybe you managed to get a real live person Sleo. I notice the UK Amazon have now fixed the problem with the description. Same revised wording as the Harper Collins UK description so it must have come from the publisher, not my complaint.
It is interesting that the publisher has an ISBN and price up for a downloadable audio version of Initiate's Trial, are they just getting hopeful or is there a chance of actually getting one?
I always have trouble following audio books, if I cannot see it as I am reading it just goes in one ear and straight out the other, without actually sinking in. For that price I would buy it though. Publishers should try and please as many fans as possible these days, release a version of the book for just about every taste.
