The introduction of multiple characters produced a sluggish start to this novel, however it proved to be necessary to establish the characters. The narrative was adequate as well as the overall length of the story.
The storyline held true to other examples I have read in the Star Wars genre. The conflicts involved Mandalorians, Jedi and Sith orders, The Republic and The Empire.
Great characters, good story, self contained plot, epic Star Wars goodness.
People seem critical on this book but I was very impressed. I read a lot of Star Wars books and this was one of my favorites.
Starts off very slow, but midway through develops into an exciting story.
considering that this story of Star Wars is 3500 years before Darth Vader, the Author should have spent more time at the start setting the stage for the time and the actual factions that are fighting for power. You have the Jedi, the Republic forces, the Imperial forces, and the Sith that did the Imperor's bidding, but also has their own parallel agenda.
