I really don't like anything that someone took, added their own spin to and rehashed, but this one wasn't too bad.

The Author develops the main characters very well in this one and you can really feel their emotions. That said however, the characters feel static at times, probably a byproduct of being based on a video game.

The author does a good job of hooking the reader, and I found it very hard to actually put the book down, especially toward the end. After the climax of the story, you get dropped like a rock though and I found getting through the very last chapter was almost painful. Again, probably a byproduct of being a video game first.

All in all, I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Star Wars.

    Wish I could give it Zero stars.

    Wish I could give it Zero stars.

    The original was great. I loved the introduction of Star Killer.
    Star Killer had never known anything but Darkness. The first book showed his redemption and sacrifice.
    Star Killer saved Leia, and the founders of the rebelion. The first book worked with the Star Wars timeline.

    This hurts the timeline and weakens all characters This really sucked! .
    Star Killer's greatest strength was he martyred himself. This book undid his sacrifice and Proxy's. Both had died for the rebelion, and this undoes that. Darth Vader was powerful beyond belief and this clone beat and captured him.

    If you are a fan of the VG, read it. If not, leave it alone.

    I didn't like this book at all, I think Sean Williams is rewriting the whole Star Wars saga. Let's start with the painfully obvious. Yes, we all know Starkiller has this amazing amount of power in the Force. In fact, he has a ridiculous amount of power for a Jedi of his ripe age. Introducing an over-powered character isn't a bad idea for a video game, it mixes things up and does provide the player with means to cause carnage on different levels; however, for an old fan of the Star Wars saga, this is a book that I would not recomend. This guy, Galen Marek (a.k.a Starkiller), single-handedly beat the most powerful Force users in the entire Galaxy and, no less, at the same time. Then he did it again, along with beating down hundreds of clones...of himself.

    Not to mention guiding an entire frigate while on the hull in deep space and crashing through a planet. It doesn't end there, though. According to this book, Starkiller was responsible for the Rebellion, in spite of established Star Wars canon (movies), which was over 40 years ago. Unless this is all a plot set forth by Darth Vader to overthrow the Emperor, there is no redeeming quality in this book.
