  • "Probably the best Star Wars book in..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I love how Karen Miller is not afraid to show the human aspects of being a Jedi, while showing how super human they can be.

    Obi-Wan is often presented as cold an calculating. In this book however, we see more of Obi-Wan's compassion. We also learn that he was once in love with another Jedi.

    We also see Anakin's Force powers do magnificent things that he never knew that he could do. His efforts to protect the villagers on Lanteeb are awesome.

    We are also introduced to Greti, who is a Force sensitive little girl with Force healing powers. I want to see more of her. Her character is quite compelling.

    Taria Damsin is another person I would like to see more of. She is a Shadow of the Jedi Order. Shadows have not been explored much at all and I find them fascinating. I would love to learn more about her history and adventures.

    Overall, I like this book a lot. There are a lot of memorable scenes. Some brought a tear to my eye, and others gave me a chuckle. And it has my favorite Togruta in it too.

    On the Outer Rim, the planet Lanteeb has no strategic value, no political power, and one enormous problem: It has been invaded by an emboldened Separatist Alliance. To find out why, Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi have snuck onto Lanteebe and now look oblivion in the eye.

    Story

    This book is great for many reasons. I love the fact that this is a Star Wars book and there are no Jedi. I also love that it is a tribute to Ocean's 11 (1960, starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Peter Lawford). I was not expecting the ending as well. I knew something was up, and almost picked up on it, but dismissed the idea. I was wrong, and I loved it. This is will always be one of my most memorable Star Wars books.

    I am also becoming a huge fan of Marc Thompson. He is terrific when it comes to conveying physical and emotional sensations. You really feel what the character is going through when you listen to Marc read.

    Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

  • "The Wraiths Are Back"

    8 of 8 helpful votes

    Wraith Squadron is back in "Mercy Kill", with an adventure that takes place after the events in "Fate of the Jedi".

    I have met Aaron Allston a couple of times, and once interviewed him for my Star Wars fan club. He's a great guy, and is one of the best writers for SW books out there, because he can combine action, intrigue, humor, and sheer innovation together into a great story. This book is reminiscent of those that have cemented him as one of the most prolific SW authors.

    First off, the narration is excellent, and a special treat for Star Wars audiobooks are the music, ambient and special effects that are weaved throughout the story. You don't get that in most books, and it really helps you feel "in" the Star Wars universe.

    As far as the storyline goes, the point of view mostly follows Voort "Piggy" saBinring, an old Wraith Squadron vet, who is recruited back into the action by Garik "Face" Loran. This is an interesting character to feature, I thought. The book also gives us some backstory on what the Wraiths have been up to in the intervening years, and also gives closure on the stories of some of its members that had been left hanging. This also gives us a more emotionally impactful story, as well.

    We also are introduced to a new generation of Wraiths in this book. Also, this particular storyline is scaled back from the galaxy-spanning conflicts of "Fate of the Jedi" and others - which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It enables us to focus more deeply on the new characters.

    A couple of drawbacks - I don't think the new characters mesh quite as well as the old classics. Maybe I'm just nostalgic, though. Also, there isn't much actual starfighter action in the book - its more of Wraith's style of clandestine operations. I think calling the book "X-Wing" in the title generally makes you expect space battles. Finally, the more limited scope of the story didn't quite meet all my expectations - but all these things are subjective and I'll leave it up to you to decide for yourself.

    If you liked the other books in the "X-Wing" series, then you should get this one. You'll get more of the characters you love, and you'll get to find out where the story - and the characters - go from here.

    Three decades have passed since Wraith Squadron carried out its last mission. Taking on the most dangerous and daring operations, the rogues and misfits of the elite X-Wing unit became legends of the Rebellion and the Second Galactic Civil War, before breaking up and going their separate ways. Now their singular skills are back in vital demand - for a tailor-made Wraith Squadron mission. A powerful general in the Galactic Alliance Army, once renowned for his valor, is suspected of participating in the infamous Lecersen Conspiracy, which nearly toppled the Alliance back into the merciless hands of the Empire.

    Twenty years have passed since Darth Bane, reigning Dark Lord of the Sith, demolished the ancient order devoted to the dark side and reinvented it as a circle of two: one Master to wield the power and pass on the wisdom, and one apprentice to learn, challenge, and ultimately usurp the Dark Lord in a duel to the death. But Bane’s acolyte, Zannah, has yet to engage her Master in mortal combat and prove herself a worthy successor. Determined that the Sith dream of galactic domination will not die with him, Bane vows to learn the secret of a forgotten Dark Lord that will assure the Sith’s immortality - and his own.

Now Emperor Palpatine, once Chancellor of the Republic and secretly a Sith follower of the dark side of the Force, has brought his own peace and order to the galaxy. Peace through brutal repression, and order through increasing control of his subjects’ lives.

    Hot on the heels of the New York Times best seller William Shakespeare's Star Wars comes the next two installments of the original trilogy: William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back and William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return. Return to the star-crossed galaxy far, far away as the brooding young hero, a power-mad emperor, and their jesting droids match wits, struggle for power, and soliloquize in elegant and impeccable iambic pentameter. Something Wookiee this way comes!

    The tale of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and the fall and redemption of Anakin Skywalker has become modern myth, an epic tragedy of the corruption of a young man in love into darkness, the rise of evil, and the power of good triumphing in the end. But it didn't start out that way. In this thorough account of one of cinema's most lasting works, Michael Kaminski presents the true history of how Star Wars was written, from its beginnings as a science fiction fairy tale to its development over three decades into the epic we now know, chronicling the methods, techniques, thought processes, and struggles of its creator.

    When the Empire threatens the galaxy’s new hope, will Han, Luke, and Leia become its last chance? When the mission is to extract a high-level rebel spy from the very heart of the Empire, Leia Organa knows the best man for the job is Han Solo - something the princess and the smuggler can finally agree on. After all, for a guy who broke into an Imperial cell block and helped destroy the Death Star, the assignment sounds simple enough.

    But when Han locates the brash rebel agent, Scarlet Hark, she’s determined to stay behind enemy lines.

    It's kill or be killed in the space penitentiary that houses the galaxy’s worst criminals, where convicts face off in gladiatorial combat while an underworld gambling empire reaps the profits of the illicit blood sport. But the newest contender in this savage arena, as demonic to behold as he is deadly to challenge, is fighting for more than just survival. His do-or-die mission, for the dark masters he serves, is to capture the ultimate weapon: an object that will enable the Sith to conquer the galaxy.

    The Empire's master plan is under way. The New Republic is on the verge of civil war and the rumor that the legendary Admiral Thrawn has returned from the dead is rallying the Imperial forces. Now Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and their allies face the challenge of their lives. They must infiltrate a hidden fortress filled with Imperial fanatics, rendezvous with a double-dealing Imperial commander, and journey into enemy territory to learn the identity of those responsible for an act of unthinkable genocide. But most important of all is the truth about Thrawn.

    Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas's epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare's greatest plays. 'Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearsome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.
