A strong Princess Leia story

This is a story that tests Leia's resolve and resourcefulness. It was nice to see the story focus on Leia for a change.

This was one of the worst Star Wars books I have ever read. McIntyre did not capture the essence of Star Wars. There were many scenes, especially towards the end, where the characters were in a desperate situation, and they stood around talking. However, the most disappointing thing of all was the end, but for anyone who still wishes to read it, I will not give it away. I would not recommend this book.

    The Crystal Star should just fizzle out...

    This book lacks in almost everything. Detail, plot, corrections for all of the errors. I counted a few different times when I ran over basic grammatical errors that anyone should have caught. 'She envied Han his beard'? Something seems a bit off with that. It lacked a lot of continuity also. It jumped from subplot to another without so much as a warning. There were a few redeeming qualities, but I'd be perfectly honest in saying it's best to avoid this book if you're in the middle of reading anything Star Wars. It's not worth the trouble.

    BORING GARBAGE!

    I forced myself to finish this book. There was not one action scene that I can remember. All a bunch of boring trash with the characters all messed up. I don't even care for the cover. Whatever you do, DON'T BUY THIS BOOK!

    P.S.
    The only reason I would buy it would be to rip it up and throw it in the trash.

    Out of character

    Like many of the other reviewers noted, the characters - how they acted, thought, spoke 'like Leah's whininess and extreme anger at Chewbacca, and Luke's creepily intimidating Han with his light saber in a dark room' - all seemed very out of sorts. The other Star Wars books do a great job on that aspect, and are even very well written. This was more like an unembellished story than an immersing and descriptive tale. It's the first time I've been really disappointed in one of the Star Wars books.

    Big Disappointment

    Although I enjoy many sci-fi books by McIntyre, this one was TERRIBLE!! It was way too confusing for even the most advanced reader.
