Perhaps he's about to break into a rendition of Europe's Final Countdown?

Whenever anyone mentions that song, this becomes pertinent.

I hadn't watched Nirvana in ages... when did I change enough to think that Kurt looks really young? Poor guy :-\

Seeing so much Nirvana atm, two songs they did (although one wasn't their's but still) used in two different trailers for things.

I'm completely fine with that though.

Is that a real name of the book or is it photoshop malarkey?

Sam Sykes is quite a talented author,I just think his covers have let him down personally maybe he was being ironic  as The Aeon Gate is a fun adventure story which is over the top on purpose with it's characters, basically its a D&D story on acid.Each novel of the trilogy is 700 pages long  200 pages longer then it should be I would recommend it  to people who used to read forgotten realm novels.
