Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Agents of Chaos I: Hero’s Trial

Star Wars: Scoundrels

Having read Winner Lose All by Timothy Zahn, I felt like I was in great shape going into Scoundrels. Sure, the only similarities are four characters and a single reference to the heist in the short story (which Zahn or the publisher tactlessly refer to on a separate page after the very end of the book — way to go, guys), but the tone of the short story is a great primer.

Unbeknownst to them, the Yuuzhan Vong, an ancient and so far unknown race from outside the galaxy have begun their invasion. They’ve begun so subtly, by having insurgents and the like on various planets pretending to be rebels themselves and upsetting the balance, but they’ve yet to do anything concrete; that’s where we begin.

Star Wars: The Paradise Snare

I first read Star Wars: The Paradise Snare a little while after it came out, back in 1997. I was just a kid and I thought it was a pretty rad book, all in all. On a whim I picked it up again and gave it another reading. I was sorely disappointed. Read the rest of this entry »
