Overview

Star Wars Coruscant Nights #3: Patterns of Force by Michael Reaves

After the Empire’s bloody purge of the Jedi, one lone Knight still fights for those who cannot, unaware that he’s about to be swept into a cataclysmic battle against the Master of Darkness himself.

Throughout the galaxy, a captured Jedi is a dead Jedi, even in Coruscant’s most foul subterranean slums, where Jedi Knight Jax Pavan champions the causes of the oppressed with the help of hard-nosed reporter Den Dhur and the wisecracking droid I-5YQ. But Jax is also involved in another struggle–to unlock the secrets of his father’s death and his own past.

While Jax believes that I-5YQ holds some of those answers, he never imagines that the truth could be shocking enough to catapult him to the frontlines of a plot to kill Emperor Palpatine. Worse yet, Darth Vader’s relentless search for Jax is about to end . . . in triumph.

The future looming over the valiant Jedi and his staunch pals promises to be dark and brief, because there’s no secret whatsoever about the harshest truth of all: Few indeed are those who tangle with Darth Vader . . . and live to tell the tale.

Having read almost every Star Wars novel ever published I am not certain what the criticisms of this trilogy are all about. I enjoyed the characters and found the story line regarding the lives of some surviving jedi engaging and interesting. This is not high brow literature - it is fun and escapist storytelling in a familiar context. While not the best Star Wars novel in my opinion, I got exactly what I wanted out of it: an interesting tale in a setting I love to read about.

Patterns of the Force was a good book. It was slow to start. I had a little trouble getting into to it, but I have noticed that with all of Michael Reaves' books. I still enjoyed it. The ending was a little off. It makes me think there will be another one. I was under the impression that this would be a trilogy. I'll be happy to read more from this series. I would love to hear more about Jax and the gang.

The headline basically says it all. The Star Wars universe is compelling enough to read them as they are published but a medium amount of them are not written very well and the storyline and the established characters make them at least "ok" to read. However, the three Corusant Nights series is much better than most. It probably would have been better if the full story was edited down to two books, but it wasn't. Thanks,

another great book in the star wars series

Coruscant Nights III: Patterns of the Force was an exciting end to the three-book series. Michael Reeves takes us into the small group of detectives, run by Jax Pavan, one more time. The mystery of the bota from Drongar is solved! The long-awaited encounter with Darth Vader finally comes to a head! After reading the two previous books, this one is a must read.

Okay for Star Wars (SW) fans and wider audience alike. A nice read, interesting characters and plot, but some flaws in story obvious to any discerning reader familiar with SW universe. For example, ending is as unlikely as it is anti-climactic, but as far as unlikely events this is consistent with first instalment of this series which opens with a revered and talented warrior- a Jedi Master no less- falling prey to a few stormtroopers (!?). Other unlikely and glossed-over events occur throughout story (a 15 y.o. UNTRAINED force adept who can perform force leaps, telekinesis, and has powers Yoda (or an untrained Luke Skywalker) didn't even have; 'bota', memory/force power erasure/brainwashing mysteriously achieved in a day, etc, etc.). A great read for 12-19 y.o. boys.

Mr. Reeves puts another notch on is Star Wars belt in this series finale to the Coruscant Nights Trilogy. A long-awaited confrontation takes place, and the book is an enjoyable (if not overly surprising) read. This is no ground breaking book like the recent Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Outcast, but fun none-the-less. Read this book!
