    This book is a perfect choice to any fan of Star Wars If you only watch the films and this is your first novel, it can put you on track about what happened before, during and after the films, not only between the story of the book itself but also with a great resume after the novel where they give the highlights of each Star Wars era and even some recommendation of books or each of those eras and a complete list of all published novels so far Obviously this in the Expanded Universe s novel This book is a perfect choice to any fan of Star Wars If you only watch the films and this is your first novel, it can put you on track about what happened before, during and after the films, not only between the story of the book itself but also with a great resume after the novel where they give the highlights of each Star Wars era and even some recommendation of books or each of those eras and a complete list of all published novels so far Obviously this in the Expanded Universe s novels before of the adquisition by Disney of Lucasfilms and rebooting the canonical books And if you are familiarized with the expanded universe of Star Wars in novels previous to Disney s reboot , also this is a crucial book to get, since indeed it shows a crucible in the lives of the Big Three, Luke, Le...

    This book is the book that is making me give up on Troy Denning and his Star Wars books It is not good As a book that s marketing itself as a step away from the megaseries, it fails epically If you haven t read Fate of the Jedi then you be absolutely lost here The only people I would recommend this to are those who sincerely enjoyed that series and who actually wantof the same with a side of Crystal Star.The Jedi are better than everyone message in the book frustrated me beyond belief This book is the book that is making me give up on Troy Denning and his Star Wars books It is not good As a book that s marketing itself as a step away from the megaseries, it fails epically If you haven t read Fate of the Jedi then you be absolu...

    Crucible is the latest entry in the post RotJ SWEU Set in 45 ABY, a year after the conclusion of the Fate of the Jedi series, the novel focuses primarily on Luke, Han, and Leia as they help Lando face off against the ruthless Craitheus and Marvid Qreph, who are aided by both Mandalorians and Sith.All the usual Denning tropes are in play gratuitous violence, fetishistic sexualization of female characters, and Jedi who are casually written to be way too focused on vengeance and retribution The Crucible is the latest entry in the post RotJ SWEU Set in 45 ABY, a year after the conclusion of the Fate of the Jedi series, the novel focuses primarily on Luke, Han, and Leia as they help Lando face off against the ruthless Craitheus and Marvid Qreph, who are aided by both Mandalorians and Sith.All the usual Denning tropes are in play gratuitous violence, fetishistic sexualization of female characters, and Jedi who are casually written to be way too focused on vengeance and retribution The most glaring problems with the novel, though, are the weak plot, bizarre climax, and the all too familiar place the characters find themselves when everything is said and done view spoiler More than once the protagonists voice fear of the Qrephs because they re apparently extremely intelligent and always one step ahead The problem with this is that while we re con...

    I was really disappointed in this one.It s a fast read I can give it that Exciting, even, at points But just not really that great.Between this and the Fate of the Jedi series, I think I m ready for the inevitable reboot of the EU that will come with the announcement of the sequel trilogy As someone who has loved the Star Wars novels, that s something I never thought I would say It just feels like the current EU authors are floundering about with no idea of what direction they want to take I was really disappointed in this one.It s a fast read I can give it that Exciting, even, at points But just not really that great.Between this and the Fate of the Jedi series, I think I m ready for the inevitable reboot of the EU that will come with the announcement of the sequel trilogy As someone who has loved the Star Wars novels, that s something I never thought I would say It just feels like the current EU authors are floundering about with ...

    This feels like it got thrown together really fast The plot seems to have been pulled out of a grab bag You ve got Han Solo s past catching up with him, but also cyborg clones cloneborgs , and the metaphysical stuff from the clone wars cartoon we re trying to make relevant to the entire setting plus picking up on dangling threads from the last 2 events without actually resolving them It s messy, very messy.Every new character comes off flat, and the plot goes from setup mode to climax witho This feels like it got thrown together really fast The plot seems to have been pulled out of a grab bag You ve got Han Solo s past catching up with him, but also cyborg clones cloneborgs , and the metaphysical stuff from the clone wars cartoon we re trying to make relevant ...

    Fantasy Review BarnForgive the self indulgent review I will give my honest opinion for this newest Star Wars book, but I also want to chime in my thoughts on the Expanded Universe in general Specifically, with the possibility of a reset coming after the Disney buyout what I hope to see in the next go around First for a review of the book at hand I will not even begin to bother with a recap at this point, there is no point This book would be completely impossible to read without knowing the Fantasy Review BarnForgive the self indulgent review I will give my honest opinion for this newest Star Wars book, but I also want to chime in my thoughts on the Expanded Universe in general Specifically, with the possibility of a reset coming after the Disney buyout what I hope to see in the next go around First for a review of the book at hand I will not even begin to bother with a recap at this point, there is no point This book would be completely impossible to read without knowing the full and total backstory of all the Star Wars books before it, and even managed to throw some curve balls at me, a man who has been reading these books for over fifteen years.It was alright Meh may sum it up better Certainly an improvement over the horrible books I slogged thr...

    I really wish I could have liked this bookthan I did Troy Denning has written some of my least favourite Star Wars EU books and this continues that trend First the villains the Columi were just so bizarre and I had never heard of Columi before and there was little explanation to what they were Second we have the return of Vestara Khai working for with these beings for an inexplicable reason, which I presume will be revealed at some point in time Vestara has always ...

    This is the latest book in the expansive Expanded Universe of Star Wars That is stuff which is not movie canon but generally stays consistent within it s own existence The EU has been around for a long time and it s built up a pretty complex continuity at this point which can be a problem.So the core audience for this book is pretty specific People who not only love the movies, but also have at least somewhat kept up with the expanded universe And it shows because this book reads like a br This is the latest book in the expansive Expanded Universe of Star Wars That is stuff which is not movie canon but generally stays consistent within it s own existence The EU has been around for a long time and it s built up a pretty complex continuity at this point which can be a problem.So the core audience for this book is pretty specific People who not only love the movies, but also have at least somewhat kept up with the expanded universe And it shows because this boo...

    I gave trying to keep up with the extended chronology of the Star Wars universe a couple of years ago when I realized I was far too many books behind to ever fully catch up.That doesn t mean that every once in a while I m not browsing the local library or bookstore and come across the latest Star Wars novel and I don t feel a twinge of wanting to spend some time with old friends again.In many ways, reading the extended universe novels, I feel like that person who moved away from a group of frien I gave trying to keep up with the extended chronology of the Star Wars universe a couple of years ago when I realized I was far too many books behind to ever fully catch up.That doesn t mean that every once in a while I m not browsing the local library or bookstore and come across the latest Star Wars novel and I don t feel a twinge of wanting to spend some time with old friends again.In many ways, reading ...
