I know there's a few Tom Edwards fans here so I thought I'd post my cover from him for feedback. He was simply amazing to work with and, I think, ridiculously talented. Changes are still possible so please let me know what you think.
Here's the current blurb, if you're interested, for your critiquing pleasure as well:
The colony world of Garma had only known tyranny and oppressive rule by the fascist, militarized government known as the Faction for decades. An isolated settlement, the peaceful people of Garma had no hope when heavy war cruisers orbited their world, bombarded their small defense force and landed a mechanized army that had never met its equal.
The invasion ended almost as soon as it began and the occupation followed.
Many years later, Garman born Desmond Ranier is known as a Red Seal, his years of loyal and obedient service to the Faction proven with a coveted marker grafted to his hand, its color signifying the highest possible level of trust granted. Because of this Desmond enjoys responsibility and privilege few Garman people know as a utility shuttle pilot. After living so much of his life under brutal Faction rule he has accepted his place; aiding in the ongoing subjugation of his own people and the continued desecration of the only home he's ever known.
Until he sees a beautiful face from his past, a prisoner on his shuttle bound for a horrid fate in the internment camps. A woman who reminds Desmond of a life before the invasion, one he had forced himself to forget in order to survive the living nightmare his homeworld had become.
She reminds him of who he once was. And what he once believed in fighting for.
Thanks and a Happy New Year to everyone!
