The Star Wars extended universe officially jumps the shark in this book. As if The New Jedi Order series hadn't done enough dreary damage to once long-beloved characters, the Legacy of the Force series turns them stupid, willfully blind and just plain moronic. Featuring one of the most pathetic villains in the EU to date (and considering the books written by Kevin J. Anderson, that's saying something) and the complete character assassination of the leading cast, Sacrifice is unreadable. Which, considering that author Karen Traviss is firmly on record as saying she hates to read novels, only comes as a surprise to the brain trusts at Del Rey who hired her. Traviss should stick to the two-dimensional video game characters for whom she has such an affinity and leave her rather sketchy political leanings out of the Star Wars universe (soldiers with big guns are kewl, Jedi and all their respect for life schtick are douches.)

The only thing that can save the EU now is a complete reboot.

Stay far, far away from this series.

    So so

    This was far better than the previous book in the series. It would be nice if Luke was more like the Luke of the past. Jacen's path to distruction needs to be more reckless. I'm disappointed in his character development.

    Punctuate!

    I think someone would put the scifi down (even though it's a great book) and study English. They apparently missed the whole section on how to utilize punctuation. These star wars books are a bit too similar to soap operas for my taste. That being, subpar character development in lieu of ridiculous plot developments.
