One can only be thankful, that this is a mind-set which she lost once the next author took over. In fact, he was something of a chump. This information helps us design a better experience for all users. The specter of full-scale war looms between a growing cadre of defiant planets and the Galactic Alliance that some fear is becoming a new Empire. So Pellaeon contacts fellow Admiral Natasi Daala to help him counter Caedus should he do anything stupid. Most of the characters in this book are also in the movies. I mean, most of this was Fett's personal mission that eventually linked with the big conflict.
However, if you do not like death, war, or conflict, do not read this book. The other large storyline is that of Jacen Solo and Ben Skywalker. Let's be clear here; the adult novels tend to focus on adult protagonists. Jaina is an odd choice for hero here; she spends the first half of the story as effectively a bit player, never taking center stage among any of the action. Instead his wife Mara lies dead at the hands of an unknown assassin, his wayward nephew Jacen has seized control of the Galactic Alliance, and the galaxy has exploded in all-out civil war. At the end of the book, Jacen Solo assumes his Sith name: Darth Caedus. Meanwhile, believes he has the potential to defeat the threat and unify the galaxy.
All of these things are things he has never done before. I will never understand why the Legacy of the Force series has so many authors. I was a little skeptical of Karen Traviss as an author. This experience shakes him to the core, and he begins to. The problem here becomes is that this book paints them both as assholes The Legacy of the Force series is one of those works of literature where the quality of the writing isn't the problem that's actually quite good it's the subject matter. As the events of the novel proceed, with the heroes of the story attempting to find a way to kill Caedus whenever they get the chance, the entire Second Galactic Civil War culminates to a confrontation over the Coalition's base, prompting the Battle of Shedu Maad.
He could retire and enjoy his life, so why does he continue? The galaxy becomes a battlefield where all must face their true nature and darkest secrets, and live—or die—with the consequences. Using this and Cal Omas' betrayal to the Galactic Alliance as leverage, he and Admiral Niathal stage a bloodless coup, arresting Omas and installing themselves as joint Chiefs of State. The theme is mainly telling right from wrong, not letting people influence you to do wrong. Mirta is sent by Ailyn to lure Fett into a trap and kill him. Also how did he survive the Pit of Sarlaac? He reached out and gently tapped Tahiri's temple.
First of all, the woman cannot write Luke or Mara or Han or Leia for that matter. I will be holding a press conference about this tomorrow morning. Jaina Solo is determined to bring her brother in, but in order to track him down, she must first learn unfamiliar skills from a man she finds ruthless, repellent, and dangerous. To end the bloodshed and suffering, what sacrifice would be too great? Overall this is a well written book for everyone to enjoy. The book flashes it point of view to that of Boba Fett, a bounty hunter known throughout the galaxy. One of the terrorists was a bounty hunter. There was room in Star Wars for bad guys who were not Sith or Bounty Hunters.
Forty years after the Battle of Yavin a dangerous new era in the Star Wars epic begins—the revelations are shocking, the stakes desperate, and the enemy everywhere. He gets sent to a Sith world, hunting a Sith amulet, while being told to not tell his parents what he's doing, and he listens to this. I read some the comments on this book and some of the backlash of Boba Fett being this old man and boo hoo on him, but I guess they told the story of him and his family and how it involved the Galactic Alliance and the Corellias. First, I have to go and grab a quote out of my Bloodlines review: I mean, we have Luke, Mara, Corran and Kyle as Jedi who have quite often been involved in anti-terrorist activities, and are some of the best people in the galaxy at being where they're not wanted. I guess its a little frustrating after how easily manipulated he was by Lumiya to the darkside, which is hard for me to understand, two books later nothing has really happened in the grand scheme of either of their planning.
Everything in his life had led to this point because Anakin Skywalker's destiny had been subverted and warped by well-meaning but blind Masters, sending him off on a tangent to do a flawed Palpatine's bidding instead of realizing his own full power. When they arrive, Brisha informs them that she suspects that there is a Sith Lord in the caves beneath the asteroid, and that she needs the Jedi to get rid of him. He started sharing his feelings. Tahiri, and presumably the rest of the Strike Team, now remembers Tahiri kissing Anakin--because that's now what she did in the past. The seceding group is even called The Confederation! They feel like they are doing more than their share with money, weapons, soldiers, trades, ect.
Despite the fact that Jaina is the one that ultimately stops Jacen, despite Jaina's own sense of importance, and approval of her actions by the Council, it's Ben who comes closest to following the necessary steps of the Hero's Journey. Yet at the mid-point Hard Cover, things start to shift, and by Revelation the war is missing except as a backdrop to the Jedi action. With Luke consumed by grief, Jacen Solo works quickly to consolidate his power and jumpstart his plan to take over the Jedi. Later, the team of Han, Leia, Jaina, Jag and Zekk slips aboard the Anakin Solo to get information on Dark Jedi Alema Rar, and with it they track her down to Lumiya's asteroid home and kill her with Jag's Mandalorian crushgauntlets. This book wasn't amazing, though I very much enjoyed the Boba Fett portions.
No, really, that's the plot: a Sith shows up and starts up a war in order to lure the Jedi Order to its doom, tempting and turning one of its own in its effort to accomplish this fact. Jacen asks what she knows about the crimes on Lorrd, and realizes that she's Force-sensitive. Though I will say that the most realistic moment of Han's was this quotation: I don't know who you are, but you aren't my son anymore. However, as much as I enjoyed seeing Fett and his people again, I can't help but think that their insertion into the overall plot seems a bit random for lack of a better term. Star Wars: Legacy of the Force: Betrayal. With each victory against the Corellian rebels, Jacen Solo becomes more admired, more powerful, and more certain of achieving galactic peace. The question of what the Jedi are supposed to do in a conflict where neither side is more right or wrong than the other would have been a fantastic subject to explore, as would seeing how the differing personalities led to differing views on which side to take or whether to take a side at all.
