"He's taking a different path as a Jedi, that's all"
I think my greatest peeve against this plot line is how oblivious the Jedi Counsel is to Jacen's decent. They finally realize that something is going on when he becomes a military commander and takes 13 year old Ben Skywalker on raids to round up all of the Corellian on Corusant, whether they were breeding dissent or not; turns out that the Jedi Counsel is only concerned how it will look to have the Jedi Grand Master's son participating in these raids.
Only Luke really sees that Jacen is turning to the Dark Side. Does he confront Jacen? Does he take action to prove that Jacen is being swayed? Does he investigate what is going on? No, he whines to Mara Jade Skywalker, telling her that he doesn't want Ben around that. Really? After what happened with Anakin Skywalker only a generation before?
I did enjoy the window into Boba Fett's life. That his body is giving out on him. That he had a family.
And while I am really hating that no one around Jacen is confronting him about his decision, only getting frustrated that he's not the same kid he used to be.I am enjoying the story line. Watching him try to rationalize the decisions he's making. Trying to justify that by becoming a Sith he will have more ability to influence the force and bring stability to the universe, like his grandfather was supposed to before he lost control and became consumed by the evil.
Unlike when I finished Betrayal, after reading Bloodlines, I am eager to read the third book in the series, Tempest by Troy Denning.

these books are seriously flawed. only someone who has not read any other Star Wars books could possibly like these. they are so badly written, and so one dimensional, i just skim them now, and read the story synopsis om Wikipedia. very disappointing.
