In Response To: Favorite Halo Cover? (Postmortem)

: The new cover art for Broken Circle has me thinking about the novels, and
: which one has my favorite cover. I was partial to Cryptum until I saw this
: one. While Cryptum is fantastic, this new one for Broken Circle feels more
: distinctly like "Halo" to me. Other than that, nostalgia makes
: me want to say Ghosts of Onyx, but I think that's just because it takes me
: back to the days when seeing a Spartan in action with other Spartans was a
: rare treat.

: So I'm just curious, what's your favorite Halo book cover?

I really love "Mortal Dictata", but the fact that the background feels "unfinished" knocks off a few points I guess.

The Forerunner Saga covers were great because they were broad and evocative, but compared to the more detailed and on-point covers to Contact Harvest and Ghosts of Onyx, et al they feel a little fuzzy.

The best covers in my opinion give you a solid reference for something in the book--until I played on "Harvest" and then looked back at the Contact Harvest cover, I finally realized that the design of the Tiara wasn't at all like I envisioned. :P
