1 Book Reviews By Leia Organa on Wed Sep 22, 2010 12:12 am

Okay, I thought it would be fun to review some SW books, so I will let you guys know when I've reviewed a new book. Today's book I'm reviewing is one many have already read. Heir to the Empire! Very Happy

Star Wars Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn

This is the first book out of a three book cycle. In this book certain key characters are introduced such as Grand Admiral Thrawn, Captain Pellaeon, Talon Karrde, Winter, and most importantly Mara Jade. It also expands on certain characters such as Admiral Ackbar and Wedge Antilles.

I surprisingly enjoyed reading this book. It definatly lived up to it's reputation. Everyone's storyline was well written, and the scenes between Luke and Mara where some of my favorite along with the parts of Leia on Kashyyyk. The characters were true to the movies. No one seemed to act out of character.

There was no languge that I can recall. At times the book would mention that someone was swearing, but what they were actually saying was not mentioned. Or at least I don't remember so. Also, of corse, the book has battle scenes and violence, but Star Wars has always had that. If you are bothered by violence then Star Wars isn't for you period.

I definatly recammend reading this book, but learn a little bit about the Star Wars expanded universe before reading it so you can fully enjoy reading this book.

Keep an eye out for my next review! I'm not sure what I'm going to be reviewing next. Also if you would like for me to review a book, just mention it. I might read it and review it for you.

Okay, here's my next review! Very Happy

The Young Jedi Knights Heirs of the Force

[img][/img]

This is the first book in a fourteen book series. In this book, some key characters are introduced. Lowbacca, Chewbacca's nephew, and Tenel Ka, heir to the throne of the Hapes Cluster.

The book starts out with the twin children of Han and Leia, Jacen and Jaina, on Yavin 4 at Luke's Jedi Academy. While Lowbacca was flying in his T-23, he noticed somthing in the forest. So Lowbacca, Jaina, Jacen, and Tenel Ka go into the forest to find what Lowbacca thought he saw. It turned out to be a TIE fighter that had crashed back during the Battle of Yavin. Jaina thinks she could get it up and running again. Little do any of them know that the pilot had survived, and had been waiting for the Empire to rescue him for all of those years because as he put it, "Surrender is betrayal.".......

This book isn't as good as some of the others in this series I've read. It is basically an adventure that gets you familiar with everyone and their personalities. Don't get me wrong. It's still a great story.

Once again it's Star Wars, so there will be violence. Also there is no languge that I can recall either.

I recamend reading this series. Try to read them in order though. I also believe this series leads straight up to The New Jedi Order series, and in book three, Zekk is introduced.

So, I'm trying to read Dark Force Rising so I can review it, but I haven't had time to read much yet. I might review the next Young Jedi Knight book, Shadow Academy next.

DARK FORCE RISING BY TIMOTHY ZHAN
This review is really short, but I'll try to make the other book reviews longer. The Last Command will probably be short too considering many have already read it anyway, and that a lot happens in the Thrawn books.

This story involves many of the same characters, but it does introduce a few new ones. This book basically involves two main storylines: Leia trying to help the Noghri, and The Dark Force fleet.

This story definatly lived up to Heir to the Empire. The story seemed to move a bit faster though.

No languge was really used, and there is some violence.

I really recammend reading this book. It really carried on where Heir to the Empire left off.

I'm sorry it's a short review. I think I might review Before the Storm next from The Black Fleet Crisis.

4 Before the Storm on Sat Nov 06, 2010 1:32 pm

Okay, it's 1:00 AM almost and I'm bored, so I think I'll write another review.

The Black Fleet Crisis: BEFORE THE STORM: Book One





---Summery from the back of the cover: It is a time of tranquillity for the New Republic. The remnants of the Empire now lie in complete disarray, and the reemergence of the Jedi Knights has brought power and prestige to the fledgling government on Coruscant. Yesterday's Rebels have become today's administrators and diplomats, and the factions that fought against Imperial tyranny seem united in savoring the fruits of peace.

But the peace is short-lived. A restless Luke must journey to his mother's homeworld in a desperate and dangerous quest to find her people. An adventurous Lando must seize a mysterious spacecraft that has weapons of enormous destructive power and an unknown mission. And Leia, a living symbol of the New Republic's triumph, must face down a ruthless leader of the Duskhan League, an arrogant Yevetha who seems bent on a genocidal war that could shatter the fragile unity of the New Republic…and threaten its very survival.

---Feelings on the book: I hate it. To tell you the truth, I didn't even finish reading it. I only got halfway through before I pretty much gave up. Why, might you ask, do I hate it? Well, I made a pretty little list of why I hate it and why it stinks. These were some problems with the first half of the book. (No telling what you'll find in the second half!)

*Luke was a moron. He one day decides he didn't want to be the teacher at the Yavin IV school and runs off to Vader's castle. He left the school in charge of a APPRENTICE. Oh boy. I guess he thought the masters couldn't handle things. Luke is SO out of character in this story that it's not even funny.

*There were only 15 chapters, but they were really long. I didn't like that! I like reading a chapter or two then stopping, but with this book it took awhile to read a chapter.

*Leia was out of character. She wasn't as bad as Luke, but she was still annoying at times. She also was really whinney. She wouldn't shut up about asking Luke to come train her kids. He kept saying no, but she still went on and on.

*There was also some pointless scenes.

*There also was an extreamly stupid and annoying side-story with Lando, R2, and 3PO. It was extreamly pointless and annoying.

*This is the most scary and stupid problem the story had. Luke was running around Vader's castle in his birthday suit. Yeah... Scary, right? This is what it said: "He wore clothing only out of habit, but the habit weakened." So...yeah. Luke, go put your clothes back on, please.

*Some stupid woman called Akanah who claims to know Luke's mother whom she claimed was named "Nashira" somehow managed to sneak in the castle without Luke knowing. Very stupid. She convinces him to come with her to go find his mother "Nashira". So...yeah. Poor Padme.

*Luke runs off with Akanah to try to find his mother "Nashira" and Akanah's family. Annoying!!

*There was a stupid scene with Luke thinking about a ship and how he hated it or something. Whatever it was about, it was dumb.

*Han was a useless character in this story. He didn't do much at all.

*Overall, Michael P. Kube-McDowell is a bad writer. I've actually never heard of the guy before. Hmmm. I wonder why? Razz

---The good: (Yes, there was SOME good)

*The Solo kids were adorable, as usual!! Very Happy

*There was one scene where Leia yelled at Luke. I loved it! Luke had been sooo annoying, and it did me good to see Leia try to set him straight!

---Overall: If you see this book at a store, my advice to you would be to... RUN!!!!!!! Stay away!! Big waste of money!!

Amazon: Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven
Leia: Like a Star @ heaven 1/2

Maybe one of these days I'll finish that book. When I do, I'll write part two to this review.
