Overview

“When I look into you, I see no loyalty. . . . I sense only tangled allegiances. . . . Given a choice, I would never trust you.”
 
From across the galaxy they’ve come: agents of both the Republic and the Sith Empire, an investigating Jedi Padawan, an ex-trooper drummed out of the Republic’s elite Blackstar Squad, and a mysterious Mandalorian. An extraordinary auction has drawn them all together—in quest of a prize only one can claim. Each is prepared to do what he must to possess the treasure, whose value may be the wealth of a world itself. None intend to leave empty-handed. All have secrets, desires, and schemes. And nothing could ever unite them as allies—except the truth about the deadly danger of the object they covet. But can Sith and Jedi, Republic and Empire—enemies for millennia—join as one against the certain doom of the galaxy?

    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.

    I Also Recommend:

    A dragging plot and unrelatable characters

    This is not the worst Star Wars book ever written, but it is certainly not the best. I believe that most of the problem lies with the long pauses in the action and those long pauses do not do anything to keep the reader interested. Beyond the fact that the characters are not the traditional Star Wars characters that we have grown to care about (Luke, Han, Leia, etc), the characters in this story are not unique enough to care about. Sean Williams is a good Star Wars author, but his best work within the series lies with the Force Unleashed series.

    Poor in all aspects

    If an author does his/her job, you shouldn't feel as though you are reading the story. You most definitely shouldn't feel as though you are being "told" it, but rather shown. Mr. Sean Williams fails in all aspects. His characters are paper-thin cliches, his plot predictable and unconvincing, but perhaps Fatal Alliance's biggest flaw is the very writing itself. The reader cannot delve into the story and the scene because they are constantly blocked by the writer's obtuse and forced voice. I would only recommend this book to the most diehard starwars fanboy, and even then, with some reservation. Cheers

    Star Wars

    This book is pretty slow at the beginning. But thats only because it will make the characters familiar to you so that you can understand the things that they do when pressured or in trouble...things like that...this isnt the best star wars book, but it is pretty darn good

    Not the best

    This book is certainly not the best SW book out there, too much battles, the whole book is literally a huge battle, for those of you who liked how Darth Bane series was written, or Darth Plagueis, this book is NOT for you, then.

    Great Book!

    I do not understand why people dislike this book. It has plenty of action, politics and great characters. It ties into SWTOR and is a fun read.

    Great scope, but a little slow moving

    Star Wars The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance is a good Old Republic novel over all. The story is a little slow getting started but once it does, look out! There is plenty of action like most Star Wars novels, but it's the suspense that keeps this story enticing. The plot centers around a mystery that turns out to be something new and unexpected that's a threat to the whole galaxy.That's where the Jedi come in. And the Sith. And lots of other characters all racing each other to determine the fate of the galaxy. Filled with action, intrigue, suspense, new locations, and of course great new characters, Fatal Alliance has all sorts of surprises that keep you turning the page. It's another wonderful addition to the Old Republic books.
