I'm a little over halfway through "The Crystal Star." The characters are so off the chart of their demeanor from other SW books I have read. Up until now, everything about the common character was the same, or damn near in each book, it was like one author had been writing the whole time. Vodna McIntyre (forgive the spelling because I don't feel like looking at the book right now ) just totally changed the face of Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie and even Threepio! *highlighted just incase* Jaina is 5 years old. Jedi traits or not, I don't even think a 10 year old would be as clever as she is in figuring this stuff out, or to hide her escape in the door. At 5, if somebody was nice to me, even if they had bad intentions...how the heck am I supposed to know that? I wasn't capable of complex thought like expressed there. but yeah...enough of my spiel...any others?
