Yeah XXXXXX is Anakin. 1) Tahiri and Anakin were being built up very very intricately by the authors. It would have been a waste of an entire book and hundreds of pages. 2) Anakin grew luminescent, infact translucent if you will. That has to signify something important. A desperate Jedi can't just turn glowing and kick temporary butt. 3) Anakin's dissapearance in the Force may be something related other than death. Perhaps even his body retrieval signifies something. I would for once like to see Yuuzhan Vong technology put to use, kill off that Jaina Spears off instead. 4) Anakin died to kill VOXYN? I mean come on. I am a big fan of Troy Denning but that is just funny. The kid that is the namesake of Darth Vader CAN'T die to a pair of drooling mindless beasts and a couple of hundred Yuuzhan Vong. I wish Luke named his son Anakin. Sheesh. 5) This new kid that's a look alike to Anakin may come important. Anyone remember Callista? Hmm? 6) And last but not least, I just HOPE Anakin doesn't show himself in spirit form. No-one in EU knows how to do it, and it would be implausible if Anakin can do it when Qui-Gon can't. Tell me what you think. Best Regards, --O.W.
