    Ok so I was wrong the other day about the release of Abyss (book 3 in Fate of the Jedi). It came out yesterday. Its a little over 300 pages, so longer then book 2. Amanda started reading it already and seems to be flying through it.
    I'm actually growing to like the cover art style. I hated it at first, thinking it looked incomplete.
    I'll read it after I finish "Orcs" by Stan Nicholls.

    Orcs? Is it Tolkienesque?

    I still have to read the first FotJ book but that will have to wait until I finish reading Dewey - the story of the cat who lived in the library. I just lost Sith points. [face_laugh] But cats are so sith like!!!!!! [face_mischief]

    Not quite Tolkien Jada. You have the typical races of ORcs, Elves, Trolls, Dwarves, humans..but thats where the likeness ends for the most part.
    Humans are the outsiders. The Orcs are the main characters. Humans are depicted almost like a disease so far.
    Lots of bood and killing in the first 50 pages. :D

    I haven't read any of them yet but they look pretty interesting. What are they about without giving away the ending? :p

    Some guy named Skywalker and some other Jedi. :p

    They are about what happens after the GFFA/Confederation war. Or post Darth Cadeus.
