    this thread is dedicated to your favorite njo book, and there are alot of good ones. i hope there's not already a thread for this....anyway, here's a list of the njo books, in the order i like them best.

    1. conquest
    2. ruin
    3. balance point
    4. traitor
    5. rebirth
    6. rebel stand
    7. dark journey
    8. star by star
    9. onslaught
    10. rebel dream
    11. vector prime
    12. hero's trial
    13. jedi eclipse

    they're all good books, but i though conquest and ruin stood well above all, with balance point, traiotor and rebirth in the second category, and the others a step below. what does everyone think?

    Traitor is the best, followed closely by SbS and VP.

    star by star would be the best by far if anakin hadn't died- that was a big letdown. conquest and ruin were very good- conquest because keyes did a very good job especially with anakin's trip across the planet to save tahiri- and ruin was very good since it was so diverse. i agree traitor was very good, it was a bit complicated at first but once you got used to it you realized the author was a genuis.

    I thought Star by Star was the best, even though Anakin died. Actually, his death made it better. I know I know, ur thinking "What an evil person" But listen, it's not the fact that he died that made it better, it's how he died. That was the coolest death I have ever read! The detail and the spiritual reverence he goes through is just amazing. Second to that IMO, is Conquest, then Traitor.

    his death was cool, but doesn't it just kill you to see such a cool character die? his cool, calm demeanor and leadership through uncanny and unrivaled skill make him my favorite character ever by far. and he was especially cool in star by star. i think it was an excellent book, and maybe even an awesome death, butit would've been my favorite only if anakin survived.

    Conquest closely followed by SBS. besides the fact that my fav. character died, it was well written.

    i just think anakin is by far the coolest character, and that killed the book. other than that, sbs was great. very, very climatic.

    the ending in balance point was the best- however conquest and ruin were better overall, in my opinion.

    Yea, I read Ylesia. It was pretty good, some nice action and a good way to tide us over until DW. Nothing unbelievable but still a fun read.
