    If you've read either of these books tell me if they're any good.

    I read Truce at Bakura, and it seems to me good :)

    Well of course, it's all based on opinion, but if you want mine . . . :p

    I would read Truce at Bakura. Being directly after ROTJ it's sets the stone for EU (even though Zahn and TTT started it all :D ) So, yes, I would read that.

    But . . . Children of the Jedi? I, personally, did not enjoy that book or any of the following ones in the Callista triology (Darksaber and Planet of Twilight) So, I wouldn't read it again, but of course . . . the choice is yours ;)

    The Truce at Bakura I found fairly enjoying, while Children of the Jedi was very bad, IMO. I didn't like it at all. [face_plain] :)

    Bakura was a fun read and worth checking out.

    COTJ wasn't as good a read. I don't think it's as bad as people say, it's just that Barbara Hambly writes in a style that doesn't suit Star Wars at all.

    Truce at Bakura was the first SW book I bought besides the trilogy novelizations, so it has a major nostalgia factor for me. :) I liked it quite a bit.

    I'll take a stand here and proudly proclaim that Children of the Jedi is my all-time favorite Star Wars novel. I loved it. Love it love it love it. Still do. :)

    I liked Truce at Bakura, but thought Children of the Jedi was a bit weak. But, if you really love SW books, read it anyways, even though it probably wont be your favorite.

    I would encourage everyone to read all Star Wars books. I like them all although I do like some more than other. COTJ being one of my least favorites but I would still recommend it.

    Truce at Bakura was pretty decent, in only due to its closeness to RotJ timeline-wise. Id skip over the other one, though.
