Seven Seas Entertainment Shares Cover for Upcoming Release of Stars of Chaos Vol. 2

Seven Seas Entertainment revealed the cover for their upcoming English-translated release of priest’s Stars of Chaos: Sha Po Lang Vol. 2.

The new cover, featuring lead characters Chang Geng and Gu Yun, is notable in that it’s the first time Seven Seas has changed artists midway through a series for artwork they’ve commissioned. Stars of Chaos: Sha Po Lang Vol. 1 was illustrated by Eornheit, the same artist who provided illustrations for the book’s interior. However, for volume two, both the cover and interiors are being drawn by eleven small jars. Seven Seas did not reply to questions about why the change was made, or if it will be permanent.

The majority of Seven Seas’ danmei licenses have been released in English with brand-new covers illustrated by fans of the series. The only exception to date has been Heaven Official’s Blessing, which utilized artwork already seen in the series’ Taiwanese edition.

Stars of Chaos: Sha Po Lang is a danmei novel series written by priest, and debuted in English this past July to a generally positive reception.

Seven Seas’s synopsis for the second volume is as follows:

ENEMIES FROM WITHOUT AND WITHIN
Four years ago, Chang Geng and Gu Yun parted in anger. When fate draws them together again, Chang Geng, a once-awkward teen, is now an elegant and adroit young man.

But storms lie ahead. As Great Liang faces foreign pressure from without, Gu Yun finds himself embroiled in turmoil within the imperial court. Meanwhile, as the curse in Chang Geng’s blood grows, his feelings for his godfather become more painful to subdue by the day. How much longer can he keep Gu Yun from learning his secret…and what will happen when he can hide it no more?

Stars of Chaos: Sha Po Lang Vol. 2 is scheduled for a January 16, 2024 release with preorders available at all major retailers now.
