Kerra Holt's Grumani Sector Tour 1,032 BBY with special guest stars - the Sith Calimondra family!
Single Female Jedi- fighting crazy sith families, wearing sexy miniskirts and being self reliant!
A solipsist, a nihilist, a chaotician, and two juvenile twin zombie overlords vs an errant Jedi.
Jedi who looks like Selma Hayek, then doesn't, then kinda does, at least on covers, takes on Sith Lords in a series that already has a end date. By John Jackson Miller, the guy we would rather be writing more KOTOR.
Don't forget tends to be crosseyed on covers.
. . . I kind of almost want to read the thing now
I couldn't care less about Knight Errant, but even I enjoyed the novel.
I really wish I could care about this...but I don't. (That's my summary of KE, not the contest.)
John Jackson Miller gambles that we can handle a female protagonist who isn't underpowered or gripped with angst, and so turns out a fast-paced, throwback adventure novel with a tremendous rogues' gallery.
And I was already writing my Wedge's Gamble summary as I clicked on the thread . . .
Just keeping you on your toes.
Single Female Jedi fighting a Sith family so dysfunctional, the Joker looks at them and says "You guys are crazzzzzzy"
A book about God, the Devil, Adam and Eve as siblings, and their grandmother, all set in the Star Wars Universe, thirty years before SWBoD:ANotOR, and is also the first Star Wars book to feature a strong main protagonist, who has some family issues, and also has some... looks issues when drawn on covers.
I love that the EU is now so labyrinthine that the titles are now incorporating smilies.
Crap --- I liked your post; does that mean I voted for it?
Never know when a thread could suddenly go under
Ooh, drama! Peabody, Coffee, and Hav are all tied at six likes, so we'll go into the lightning round, wherein I leave this thread alone for another day and see what else happens. I personally endorse Coffee's entry, because zombies.
That's actually my main criterion for voting: does the summary make me want to read this thing? If it doesn't, it's no good. (Yes, even summaries for bad books should make me want to read it, if only to see if it's really that bad.)
I may get around to buying and reading it one day, but the synopsis didn't whet my interest all that much - no involvement of Kyp, Corran, Wedge or Luke!
I'm going with whether or not the summary accurately reflects the content of the book. Call me crazy. Unless I haven't read it, in which case I'm going with the one that makes me want to read it.
And Barriss_Coffee is our winner! Yay zombie overlords!
X-Wing: The Bacta War. Go.
Nawara Ven, space lawyer extraordinaire.
Did we deliberately skip two X-Wing books?
Life, death, and Wedge gets an SSD over Thyferra.
With the bio-engineered Krytos Plague upping the demand for bacta and Ysanne Isard sitting on the only source, Rogue Squadron must enlist the help of smugglers and the insectoid natives of Thyferra to expell the Imperials, while Booster Terrik single-handedly turns red paint into the most valuable commodity in the Galaxy and Corran Horn admires tactile art.
That's Krytos Trap. Though, if we're to stretch credibility, it could easily apply to the series as a whole.
