A Must Not Read!

I have been a Star Wars fan for 20 years. Timothy Zahn sucked me in and got me reading. For years the only books I would read were SW books. This book I am sad to say reminds me of much of the bad years of the Bantam era - think Darksaber, Planet of Twilight, and Crystal Star bad. There is no character development and no original thought. The one thing it has is some pretty good fight scenes. This book reads like an RPG - lame dialogue, weak characters, and awkward scene transitions. If you are not a die-hard like me, do not read this book. There are many many others in the SW Universe that will capture your attention, your heart, and your budding obsession.

    a prequel to SWTOR mmorpg

    Not sure if it was the writer's own style, or that the book appears to be a tie-in to the online game coming out soon, but this has been my least favorite of the Star Wars novels. The only interesting character was Jet Nebula, the smuggler, and the Mandolorian. I would have liked to see these characters more fleshed out. There were several times while reading that I just simply lost interest in any of it. The last few chapters the action picked up, and that is when the various plot lines finally took an interesting turn. It will be interesting to see if these characters turn up in the game. So if you are going to play the online game, then get this book, otherwise you might want to pass on this.

    Don't waste your time.

    I made it about halfway through the first page. At this point I saw that the main character's name was "Jet Nebula." I then threw the book (literally) across the room where it still sits in my closet where it fell.

    Why not just name the character Supernova McAwesome? I knew right then and there that I would not be able to take this book seriously. I hated this for the same reason I walked out of Episode III during the opening credits. Giving the characters stupid childish names like General Grievous.
