    Mystery, excitement...a young Jedi who takes a step towards the dark side does indeed crave these things.

    Anakin learns important lessons about the galaxy: your underlings can actually wish for you to kill them, The Dark Side is an illness, Tarkin is not trustworthy, don't have a spaceship as a pet (it will die anyway and you have to take long walks with it) and that a story can have a view to the end of the Republic, Sienar, Tarkin, hints to a planet-destroying attackers and cool ship, planet and alien designs but still be so very boring.

    How dare they use the word 'rogue' in the title of a book that doesn't feature Wedge & co?

    Picking an organic ship based on which of the seeds clinging to your body you like the best, which I guess is still better than having salesmen follow you around talking BS.

    I know we said quotes aren't allowed, but, seriously, the best one sentence summary of this book is "This is what it was to have the heart of a master."

    My official entry: Living, breathing characters actually grow and change in interesting, believable and organic ways which causes 9/10ths of EU authors to spontaneously combust.

    God, I love Rogue Planet.

    A missing Jedi, attachable puff balls that help create a ship and a planet that can move on its own power set in the pre-Clone Wars era but tying in to a Yuuzhan Vong story in the New Jedi Order.

    For the record, I'm not explicitly banning quotes, but they have to stand totally on their own. RF's didn't really work without his own statement preceding it. The "heart of a master" line would be alright, but you'd have to give it its own post. :p

    Everything I tell you is a lie, including this quote, which may or may not have any relevance to Rogue Planet, but if I told you it wouldn't be the truth so I can't answer.

    Anakin is way too pissy for a time frame 10 years prior to ROTS, but that might be because Greg Bear is having him race trash cans.

    As it happens, Hav and Relaxus are technically tied, but since Relaxus' entry doesn't actually have anything to do with the book, I'm giving this one to Havac.

    Psst, that's from Fall of the Sith Empire, not GAOTS.

    Truly, it was indeed a Golden Age, back when spaceships had sails, masts, and rigging for no particular reason; heads in jars could be Sith Lords and brain-jellyfish in jars could be Jedi Masters; friendly Hutts wore gigantic fezzes; Naga Sadow fought such notable Sith Lords as a phallicly-chinned guy named Ludo, a dude with an eyepatch, and another dude with a mohawk; the proud TOTJ tradition of heroes falling to the dark side for vague and unconvincingly motivated reasons continued; the author felt under no great obligation to explain why the Jedi went to war to support a militaristic, expansionist empress; and everything depicted conflicted with everything the same comic series initially established about the era.

    Kevin J. Anderson is two years away from writing his only good Star Wars story but until then enjoy some terrible tales set 5,000 years ago that involves characters acting with no common sense and some Egyptian-like Sith and other stupid nonsense.
