Thanks to KoolKorra from the forums for informing me of this new Amazon listing.

http://www.amazon.com/Endgame-Nickelodeon-Legend-Korra-Junior/dp/0449817342/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1351500973&sr=1-1&keywords=the+legend+of+korra+endgame

Some of you may be wondering how on earth there can be a number 2 of these books without a number 1, but if you saw this post from a few months ago you know what this book is.

Endgame Book

Here is the cover of Volume 2 of these Korra Junior Novelisations, this will follow on from Revolution. And we now know what both books will cover.

Here is the product description

The Legend of Korra continues the epic action begun in Avatar: The Last Airbender! Fantasy fans ages 12 and up can relive Korra’s deadly confrontation with the shadowy villain Amon in this exciting novelization! Endgame retells the dramatic final six episodes of Nickelodeon’s hit series, The Legend of Korra. 
The most interesting thing here would have to be the word “retells”, does this just mean it is a novel adaptation of events of the episodes or does it mean that it will tell things a bit differently.

Revolution will cover the first 6 episodes of the show in it’s 256 pages while Endgame will cover the final 6 episode of Book 1 Air in it’s own 256 pages.

Endgame is out July 23rd 2013. While Revolution is out January 8th 2013. Both will be written by Erica David.

Are you planning on collecting these novels ? They are the first announced mass release pieces of The Legend Of Korra Merch.

    I’m starting to think that it’s like one of those other novels of movies/tv shows and such, where it’s just retelling the same story albeit in a more simplified manner.

    Though this does solve the question of how the LOK books will be set up.

    @cooltoph58 Thanks for the find! 🙂

    It depends. I have quite a lot of comics to purchase around that time. How much is it going to cost?

    There are 2 novels coming out next year
    Revolution in January and this one in July.

    They are just adaptations of the episodes in book format. Written in an easy to read style (hence the junior novel tag)

    Revolution will cover the events of K101-106 and Endgame K107-K112

    They may add some extra detail to locations and things due to any descriptive writing. And also depending on the perspective we may get more thoughts from characters on events.

    As an example here is the junior novel of the pixar movie Brave

    A good part about books are descriptions are given to people and places.

    i think it might tell things differently. i have a book that retold the synopsis of a video game (part of a trilogy), but it included side stories that added to the understanding of the entire thing.

    in this novel they might touch upon benders oppressing nonbenders, and how some aspects of republic city came to be. theres no reason to not include more info, but thats just me. after all, 256 pages is not just going to tell the story again.

    About the retelling, I think Erica David wants to be at her best at this so it’s in Korra’s point of view and there could be some surprises.
    i.e.

    “I could feel my insides twisting and turning as Tarrlok was bloodbending.”

    Bah! Again, Korra’s Point of View (whatever)

    I’m probably gonna get it unlike most of us, who thinks it just copies the animation.

    Anyway, thanks Airspeed.

    Others can always wait and get it a month latter based on what people are saying. That is how capitalism works books that are good sell and sell the next addition.

    Hopefully, it will be a retelling of the story with more emotion and feelings in it because, face it, books can often times give waaaaaay more information than TV shows or movies. That would be the reason I would get it, or because it comes out on my birthday :D.

    Not really, because in books you do not have the subtle animation of the faces, the tone of the voice, drama created by music.
    Yes you have more inner dialogue and thoughts and that makes up for it, but I would not say that books are straight up better.

    As you can get as much from 1 look in a visual medium as a whole page describing a look in a book.

    They probably come out about even in terms of feeling and emotion, though a lot depends on if you are a very visually orientated person or not.

    That’s true, it does depend in the person mostly. I feel like a novelization could go either way: it could create a bigger world with more context and more story, or it could completely disregard its opportunities and just be a more slow-paced and downright boring retelling of the story. However, some people tend to see all books like that so I guess those views could be taken out of consideration anyways :P. I like a book because I feel like it often goes the correct speed and contains the correct amount of thoughtfulness, but there is always a chance that it is not my style and/or not well written.

    It also depends on the author. If you have an author as descriptive as Christopher Paolini or Terry Brooks, then the story can get every detail right down to the most minuscule facial expressions. Or you could get an author such as Suzanne Collins, whose subtle descriptiveness yet near perfect advancement of plot can make a reader feel as involved and excited as any TV show or movie can. It all really goes down to the style of the author and/or the style of the reader.

    Joey Reply:

    yeah, books let you read at your own pace and it gives you time to grasp the concepts that the TV show would normally skim over. it lets you analyze attitudes and dialogue without needing to rewind too. 😛

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    This is going to be a JUNIOR novelisation so it is not going to be insanely descriptive.
    I think at best we may get a few name confirmation for minor characters, some extra description of the locations and some character perspectives on events.
    256 pages/6 episodes = 42 pages per episode + 4 leftover.

    So I can see a lot of stuff being skimmed over very quickly and the focus on the main events. It won’t be that descriptive.

    The difference between a novel and junior novels is vast.

    Ricardo Reply:

    After viewing the first few pages of a similar book, I’d have to say that it’s still good enough to warrant a buy. Although not being descriptive, I hope that it’s not just nearly a verbatim of what the episodes are, but perhaps some scenes from a different angle or perspective.

    I don’t know how good Erica David is though, never read any of her books before. O.o

    AgentNebraska Reply:

    But let’s not forget the success The Hunger Games trilogy had, despite being aimed toward 12–young adult range, yet still seemingly ageless, as her books weren’t just revered for its astounding plot (which we are almost guaranteed) but the swift and breathtaking pace at which it was told. And though it is a 12 and up reading level, there is still much that can be done with say, 40-50 pages a chapter/episode, considering how much Paolini could do with chapters at that length. I’m thinking maybe David can pull it off, inheriting a rich plot and that amount of space, to make it feel more fast-paced and action-packed. That being said, I hope Erica David does not use the fact that it is a “junior” novelization as an excuse for leaving out great detail and/or feeling in these books, as you can still do more with books aimed at readers 12 and up.
