    I'm not sure, after she said, that she was precursor in Clone Wars era... I'm not sure, about that book. But we have to see and read the book first, to know, what kind of author Karen Travis is ;)

    Well, i've read 21 pages already, and it's going fine so far. There are a lot of references to Mandalorians which i like (i'm a Fett family fan :D ), and an ex-Mandalorian in the novel so it can be that bad(Can it?). :)

    Maybe it can't be that bad :)
    I can't say anything about this book. I've seen only cover at TF.N ;)

    At page 100 now. :) So far so good. Little action here and there, lot's of sneaking around, there's humor also(my type of humor anyway :D ), AND you learn a lot what's gonna be in the game that comes out next March. ;)

    Finished it. It's good. On a scale of 1-10, i give it 8. But thats just me. :) It's quite refreshing from NJO(i'm reading it currently) and all that Force nonsense with Jacen. [face_tired] It reminds me of X-Wing books. It's easy to read, sometimes funny... great book. :) ;)

    Be careful what You sad, the first 3 X-wings weren't good at all. Strange, but Stacpol wrote a novels about team, but normal team are from all people from the team, and Stackpol forgot about it and wrote the first three books about Corran, sometimes Wedge, Tycho, sometimes others. He mabaged to put all Rouges into a novell finally in Bacta War. I had also in those first three X-wings a strange filling of narrowness.
    But Allstones X-Wings (5, 6 and 7), and Bacta War were really good books :) I haven't read X-Wing 8 and 9.

    And what force nonsense with Jacen? Have you read Traitor?
    I'm waiting for The last Prophecy right now :)

    Well, didn't see the X-wing series that way until now. Maybe because they where the first SW books i started reading. :) Good points Darth. ;) I made a mistake when I didn't specify which book it reminded me to. Now, I whould say Wraith Squadron books. :)

    As for NJO... well, i just started reading Star By Star. Last couple of books have been... difficult and sometimes frustraiting. The constant arguments between Jacen, Anakin, Jaina, Luke and others, about the use of Force (on the Vong nad in general) have become quite boring, to be honest, and killed my will to read the rest of the series.

    Especially The Breaking Point was so boooring that I've made break after that book ;)
    But Traitor as for me, is very good book. There are still problems with How to use the Force, but there is someone, who shows the right way ;)
    but be carefull of Dark Journey, it is almost as boring as The Breaking Point ;)

    I prefer to read printed books, than e-books. I don't like to read some long text at the PC screen, eyes are very tired after reading books in that way.

    Well print them then.if you have the patience to wait for a great book sliding down your printer page by page and you are so eager to read.It killed me.
    Here in Croatia there aren't many book retailers that sell SW books.So this is the only way I can read them.

    We want a SW book shop!!!!!!!!!!!!

    As far, as I know, you don't have much book released and translated?



    And I don't have patience for printing them on my own ;)
