    No, no i'm not, but i've already read it, just as I have LOTF-FOTJ, which is why I can say they're nothing special.

    Someone told me that Mara Jade Walker dies. Which book? which series? that is one book I don't want to skip.

    That would be Sacrifice, halfway through the Legacy of the Force series.

    It was one of the first LoTF books I read- mostly because it was what was at the library.

    Worst ending to the Big 3 story ever. You want the true ending to the Big 3 story? The Unifying Force. End of Story. You want a conclusion past that? Legacy comics are your friend not Crucible.

    What everyone is getting at is most fans who have gotten to the post-NJO have given up on it at some point, and see the last book in the NJO, The Unifying Force, as the end of the timeline, due the tone it set and where it left the galaxy, as opposed to being angered either by reading the post-NJO or hearing about what happens. As with anything, there are fans of the post-NJO, but they are a minority.

    When you say fans of post-NJO, are you talking about after undying force, the last book in the New Jedi Order? Or the swarm war, which is part of the dark nest trilogy? Because really that is the last book in the New Jedi Order Era.

    I believe that the Dark Nest Trilogy is being considered "post-NJO" in this context.

    The New Jedi Order Novel Series, which ended with the Unifying Force. Anything after that is seen as garbage by the majority of the fanbase, with a few standouts such as Paul S. Kemp's Jaden Korr novels, or Mercy Kill.

    DNT is part of the problem; it's where Jacen begins his journey to the dark side. It's where Denning gets control. It's where Saba becomes Lizard Sue. It's where Jaina and Zekk merge their minds and Zekk refers to Jag as "their old boyfriend." It's where Denning gets control.

    I skipped Vortex from the FOTJ. Read all of the LOTF books.

    Considering its all based on the ridiculous premise of Vergere being a Sith and training Jacen as such, which is a complete and total fabrication of Troy Denning and his complete lack of understanding of Traitor, there isn't anything entertaining to be had.

    You liking it doesn't make it a good series. The truckload of issues surrounding it makes it bad.

    Thats subjective though, I just see a lot of "We don't like this book so you shouldn't bother reading it". I say read em all if you are a star wars fan. FOTJ took a weird space fantasy direction though, and i was bored with the majority of the series. As for jacen i found it a little bleh that they killed off one kid then the other in next series, Seemed like they were building up a anakin vs jacen in NJO

    I would wager a guess that most people recommend not reading LOTF/FOTJ because LOTF kinda nullifies any point to the NJO (Dark Nest chips in!), and FOTJ is just a continuation of that.

    Didnt jacen say he would spend rest of his life trying to regain that power in NJO, doesnt that mean he would turn to darkside sooner or later, or am i missing something on how jacen was misused?, you guys read into these things more then i do

    Are you saying you can understand why people dislike FOTJ, but not LOTF? I'd say both suffer from similar problems, and then their own unique problems that make one just as bad as the other. Regardless, they were both doomed to fail from the start in my opinion.

    I agree though, everyone should read whatever they want and decide for themselves what they think about what they've read.
