Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi #8
by Christie Golden
Ebook, 382 Pages
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
So many different threads being woven. I feel like I’m on a rollercoaster. As soon as one crisis is over, another one IMMEDIATELY pops up and then whammo, time for our heroes to jump into action again.
I like Luke, Leia and Han and the host of the original characters. Some of the newer people are ok, ie, Jaina, Jag, Tahiri, but most of the characters seem to be there as props.
The Sith. What a joke. What a phracking joke! Where are the ysalamari [excuse the spelling]? Why aren’t they blanketing Coruscant? They are a HUGE tool to use against force users and you would think that the non-force users would have realized this by now.
Abeloth-it morphs once again into the perfect boogeyman for the writers to use without having to think very much. I am resigned to it sticking around to the end.
Overall, this series is my last I’m buying in the Starwars EU. While I enjoy parts and bits, the overall isn’t as fun or as good as say, Zahn, Stackpole or Allston.
