    There was also something about how matter-of-fact Satele was about her giving up Theron. A lot of women in RL have made the same choice and it's a hard decision with many extenuating factors. However, the way Satele takes it for granted it was for the "good of the Republic" versus the good of herself (which is not a factor to dismiss) annoyed me.

    I also note that keeping it a secret while condemning attachment in public makes her a hypocrite.

    Ugh. I was hoping sooner. Oh well. It'll be here before we know it.

    She sounds pretty non-attached in your first three sentences. It sounds more like Jedi dogma than non-attachment. You can be married and not be attached. The Jedi take it to the extreme and don't let their membership risk it at all.

    Still, kill Gravus like that is just stupid.

    I'm really disappointed his apprentice wasn't a Companion and a LI.

    Is it just me or is the surest way to kill a Sith to put them on the Dark Council? It's musical chairs there.

    That could have been very heavy dialogue, but it ultimately ended up as very thin.

    yeah. i don't have a deep historical knowledge here, but i agree.

    Really liked this book. It had a little bit of a rough start, but Gnost-Dural and Theron were hilarious together. And I liked the "Emperor's Clothes" reference at the end.

    I liked it too. I think Drew does better stories when he doesn't focus as much on the Sith.

    And this wasn't even really a series. The only thing each of these books have in common is their tie to TOR. Each has a completely unrelated story to each other. And even though Satele shows up in this book, there is zero reference to her role in Fatal Alliance. So you can;t even really compare the books against each other, except maybe this and Revan, because they're both by Drew.
