    LOTF Keeps us excited!!!

    Wow....wow! I thought that this book was the most exciting of the series so far. Everthing it included kept the story alive and fresh and kept me wanting it to never end. From Mara's Force ghost visiting ben to Jacen actions leading him now an evermore dark path. The fact that he finially revealed himself to others as Darth Caedus gave me the chills. The only Dissapoinment is that there was lack of Han and Leia's view of things and not alot of Ben and Luke save for a few chapters. And even tho Jaina has gotten her extra training from Boba Fett i wouldnt be surprised if ben still is the one that finishes Jacen off.....Wow this book is great its a shame that the last book (Invincible) is the last of the series.

    Review of Revelation

    Star Wars: Legacy of the Force: Revelation by Karen Traviss is a great addition to its genre, and also to its series. This is an incredible addition to the ever-expanding library of Star Wars books. It makes the readers experience everything that is happening, and glues the reader to the book. <BR/>The book takes place 60 years after the movies. It takes place all over the Star Wars galaxy, from the forest moon of Endor, to the crowded cities of Coruscant. Jacen Solo, or as he now calls himself, Darth Caedus, is taking control of the Galactic Alliance using his secret police, the Galactic Alliance Guard. Meanwhile, the Jedi Order has fled to the moon of Endor away from Caedus¿s never ending search to eradicate them.<BR/>Jaina Solo, Caedus¿s twin sister, is determined to bring her brother in, and has been forced to resort to training with a man she bitterly despises. Ben Skywalker continues to be haunted by the suspicion that Caedus murdered his mother, Mara Jade. Ben¿s father and Grand Master of the Jedi Order, Luke Skywalker, is now having to think of plans to dethrone his nephew that previously would have been unthinkable. <BR/> Karen Traviss did an incredible job with Revelation. She makes the reader feel secure for a moment, but then blasts them with a surprise. The details grab and throw you into the middle of the chaos. Anyone who likes adventure and suspense should read this book. It leaves you craving for the final book in the series, Invincible.

    Mandio story turns out awesome..

    This book seemed to revolve more around the Mandolorian way of life as opposed to the main story with the jedi vs. Jacen. But Traviss is amazing at telling the Mando life. Though there are some things that occur that are unexpected, overall great read, but not best, Betrayal will always be the best in the series. So, hurry up go read it!

    A reviewer

    I am not a big fan of Sacrifice so I did not expect to like this book. I was very wrong. The book mainly centers around three of the main characters in the series. The first is the villain Darth Caedus, the Sith Lord who was once Jacen Solo. His overconfidence seems to know no bounds. I actually enjoyed his part of the book. He has become a very interesting villain. I am looking forward to seeing how it ends for him. Jacen's sister Jaina finally plays a big part in this book I enjoyed seeing her on her own without Jag Fel and Zekk for once. Her trip to Mandlore to learn from Boba Fett reminded me why I took a liking to her back in the NJO Series. I thought Boba Fett's part in this book was important unlike his role in Sacrifice. I loved Boba Fett in this book his interaction with Jania is excellent however, my favorite character in the book is by far Ben Skywalker. He is developing into a great character. I think he will be a worthy successor to Luke Skywalker eventually. I loved the part where Ben sees his mother's ghost for the first time. I hope to see Mara Skywalker's ghost again in some future book. Overall I thought this book was a big improvement over Sacrifice and enjoyed it completely

    Worse in the entire series

    This book was just plain boring. The Mando way of life was good but otherwise, it just went on and on with boring dialog between characters. And, as I expected from this writer, no action, no intrigue certainly not a page-turner. Normally, I keep books and read them again and again. Obviously, this one I wont keep, let along read again.

    Awesome !

    This book brings everything together and everyone into place for the final showdown. I love the way the reader is brought into the Mando's way of thinking and living.The only down side is I wanted to see more of Jaina. I dont believe she spent enough time with Fett to learn how to Kill Jacen .

    great, but could've been better

    i love the way karen traviss gives us an in-depth look into the mandolorian life-style, plus the nods at the characters from her other star wars books have sort of brought it all full-circle, but i was dissapointed that she didn't focus more on luke's, ben's, han's and leia's struggles.
