    The only thing that was annihilated was the plot.

    the one novel where all the fans shout "AH-NIGH-HILL-ATE" like a Dalek shouting "Ex-Term-In-Ate" because Drew Karpyshyn is writing it

    It is said that at some point, we're going to have to stop calling them novels, and this one might be a good place to start...

    Maybe one of the only books where I actively disliked the protagonist for more than three quarters of the nov...erm, book.

    Book 1 of my post-Revan boycott of Karpyshyn books.

    Ulicus, unsurprisingly, wins the battle of The Book No One Read.

    An interesting premise, female villain, Kessel gets a spotlight, and Luke, Han, and Leia are growing into more responsible leaders, but on the down side, the start of the Superweapon obsession, and how come everyone blasts Zahn for writing "mary sues" when Kyp Durron gets a pass?

    In what universe has Kyp Durron gotten a pass?

    I mean, besides the GFFA.

    Hot red head who sexed up ole' Wilhuff (I bet he did huff!) returns to the great galaxy and institutes "DAALA SMASH!" policy to bring down the New Republic while Luke gets his Obi-wan on and starts the New Jedi Order in what will be the main lasting legacy of KJA.

    The novel that will leave you wondering how Stackpole was able to make I, Jedi a good story when he retold the same events.

    Lando watches a bunch of jello globs* race each other, Luke scares away a space hobo's flock of seagulls after fighting that fire dragon boss from Ocarina of Time, and Han has a bad trip involving glitterstim.

    *Really, whenever I imagine the Umgullian blob races I just imagine a bunch of the Chu-Chus from the Zelda games.

    A decent start to an overall bad trilogy, but oh so important, even today, to the Star Wars EU mythos.

    KJA introduces the Sun Crusher, 'cause why have a weapon that can only blow up single planets when you can have a weapon that can send stars supernova and has impervious shielding?

    A book that has nothing to do with the Jedi Academy nor Jedi training and showcases the biggest pathetic character of all time: Daala

    An interesting premise which could have been handled so much better with a moderately competent Author

    The unintentional beginning of Luke's ineptitude as a Jedi Master, Leia's terrible parenting, and Han's destruction of the Galactic Alliance (by releasing Daala upon the galaxy).

    One wonders--if Han had never shown up, would she still be in there, sitting by the phone and wondering why ol' Willy was giving her the silent treatment?

    Presidential candidate Natasi Daala kicks off her bid for leader of the free galaxy with her first public relations tour, but a number of serious gaffes at early campaign stops and alleged links to groups manufacturing weapons of mass destruction limit her prospects in this first Presidential race.
