SPOILERS BEWARE SBS SUCKS!!!!!!! This book was pretty cool. It was dark and disturbing, makes you wonder what the unpublished "Knighfall" triology would have been like. There were parts of this book that were really good and some that really sucked! The fall of Coruscant was great! I was hoping that the Vong would take it just for symbolic reasons: it is a abomination!!! It will be interesting to see what they do to it. The "classic" character's roles were very good. Although at times they just seem to pop out of nowhere to thwart the Vong. They all had their roles and they were written just fine. I liked the YVH droids, that was sweet idea. Now they just need to let them loose on Coruscant. Teminator meets Vong! Jaina turning to the Dark Side to kill Vong was great! Makes me want the next book now. It may show that Kyp's was of thinking may be the correct way. Jacen's "capture" is cool too. He actually impressed me in this book, finally getting away from his whining, self-righteous attitude and realizing that some bad things are gonna have to be done to stop the Vong. I liked the Barabel Jedi a lot!! They kicked ass, just wish they weren't killed. Vergere.....what is the deal with her? Her character is really cool, she makes you like her one minute, then you hate her the next. I haven't figured out what she is doing. Here is what I didn't like: Anakin dying! Enough said. (Sorry Tahiri) The Mrykr mission to me was stupid and only written to kill off Jedi and push some towards darkness. What makes the Jedi think that once they kill the Voxyn queen that they would be rid of them? I am sure that the Vong already have cloned many voxyn. Furthermore, if they had already shaped one queen from a vornskr (sp?) what would stop them from shaping another one? So, with that, the mission wasn't really necessary, just a plot to kill more Jedi and Anakin. Another Jedi baby kidnapping plot? Yawn....... I am not sure if they will be able to bring Anakin back or if they even plan to. His death looks pretty final to me. I don't think the Dark Vong idea will work, since they were going to destroy Anakin's body with the rest of their dead showing me that they really didn't want it. But....... Overall, I would have to say it was one of the best books, just not great to me because I am a Anakin fan. But after I re-read it, it may become a better book to me. Your turn!
