    Actually, what 220_Volts said.
    It's not about people hating Sam for no reason; or at least, I don't see it like that.
    What disappointed people was to hear that we were going to have the same plot used for the third time, in a row.

    But, who knows. It could turn out to be amazing, or not.

    That's an interesting theory

    Finally more news about the book, considering it's just a month away! I quite like the cover, thanks for sharing Rai!

    why does the cover remind me so much of the not so good movie "national treasure"?
    anyway, if this is the thickness of the book, it looks like its only over 100 pages long, thats something that is quickly read.

    I managed to track down the first 4 issues of the comics over the weekend. I can honestly say they didn't really do anything for me. Not because of Sam or anything like that. They just seem awkward for some reason I can't put my finger on. Here's hoping this doesn't give off the same vibes.

    "Her modest wish shatters as she's plunged into a frantic race to save her best friend Sam from a toxic overdose." Ah, them crazy college kids nowadays. What ever happened to just drinking on Friday and Saturday nights?

    WinterSoldier, I'm thinking this overdose is more of the supernatural kind. If it were regular drugs (illegal or otherwise), regular medical treatment would help.

    @Driber, thanks for moving the posts to relevant thread

    I've had my copy preordered since the announcement.
    Quite glad too, only a month away and I can't wait to give it a read. I love free books.

    Updated OP with final cover image.



    I quite like it! Kind of looks like her original necklace design in the background.

    Jokes aside, I do hope it can follow up the quality of "The Lost Cult" and "The Man Of Bronze". Those were very well written, great Lara tales.

    My first thought was that it looked like an ammonite fossil.

    I don't think that's her necklace design. It does look like an ammonite fossil.

    I want to get this book, but I won't preorder it in case it sucks. I'd rather wait and see reviews about it first. I'm really interested to know what happened after the game. Although, I thought that's what Rise was supposed to be about--not that I'll probably get to play it since I don't have an Xbox (but don't plan to get it either).

    I'm definitely pre-ordering! Although I'm hoping it's a good video game tie in. It'll be interesting to see The cover art alone is what is making me buy it TBH It's GORGEOUS!

    I figured this out only a few days ago. My first though was: ''I'm definitly going to read that s***''. I'm a book junky, I'm a Tomb Raider junky... it all adds up <3
