This new stand alone Star Wars novel fills the gap between the Second Galactic Civil War (Legacy of the Force series) and the new Fate of the Jedi series. It stars Jaden Korr, ambiguously defined hero of the video game Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. This book finally gives some of the details about Jaden Korr and what distinguishes him as a Jedi. It also manages to tie in the story of Jaden Korr's continuing inner struggle with the emerging storyline of the Sith tribe prominently featured in the Lost Tribe of the Sith ebooks and the Fate of the Jedi. However, this book deals with the sister-ship of the Omen, vehicle of the Sith tribe, so this story won't be a spoiler for any who haven't read Fate of the Jedi yet. Definitely a must read for anyone who played Jedi Academy as well as anyone interested in the ongoing Sith tribe storyline.

The characters make the novel enjoyable. The dialogue is off and clunky (especially how the characters seem to wander back and forth from the habit of using contractions in a manner that doesn't seem natural). What seems like the A-plot at the beginning (involving Jaden) kind of takes a backseat to the (IMO) much-less-interesting B-plot of the ancient Sith ship and leaves the A-plot for the last several chapters of the book. Despite what seems very two-dimensional, I did come to really enjoy the relationship that develops between the three main characters and was surprised to find myself looking forward to reading the sequel.

    Meh..

    This isnt a bad book. Its just hard to say that it really excelled. The characters were written very well, but i felt the major plots of the story (timetravel, cloning, inner turmoil, exc) were missing something. I believe the intention of this book was just a setup for a series. Overall it will not hinder a book collector nor can i say that it would be a must have read.

    Crosscurrent

    For a Star Wars novel that doesn't have the core characters (Luke, Leia, Han), it is a decent story. The cool twist was finding the cloning lab, with the possibility of it being directed by Grand Admiral Thrawn, one of the greatest of the Expanded Universe characters.
    There may be a continuation of this story, so I hope they do some Thrawn flashbacks.

    Getting Rediculous

    well I've been a fan of Star Wars for YEARS and I will even read this book when it becomes available to me, but everything I have read over the years was great up until Fate of the Jedi Series.... Star Wars is going over the top now and taking it to far I mean come on Jedi Force powers that let you phase through solid objects (the hand through Mando Armor). And now we are going to have time travel? I always thought of star wars as not being a cheap production like all other friday night science fiction series. but lately it just seems like they will throw anything into their books.

    Well I will play fair and reserve my feelings about CrossCurrent until I read it, but if it is going to go with the pattern of the fate of the jedi series then I think it will be more wild and exotic than what needs be. I miss the stories about friends with different strengths and weaknesses banding together to take out an all powerful foe. cus with all this time travel nonsence, the next thing you will see is Luke, Han, and Leia traveling through time to rescue Chewie, Anakin, Mara, Jacen, and Obi-Wan to keep them from dying.!! That book can be called The Return of those who shouldnt Return!

    well Ill get off my rant now.. hope you all enjoyed!
