Jedi Trial

“Within twenty-four standard hours we will sit firmly astride the communications link that connects the worlds of the Republic. . . . Our control will be a dagger thrust directly at Coruscant. This is the move that will win the war for us.”

With these ominous words, Pors Tonith, ruthless minion of Count Dooku, declares the fate of the Republic sealed. Commanding a Separat

Not a bad book as both Star Wars and fan fiction go, but not very readable either. Mssrs. Sherman and Cragg should have spent more time on their story and less on educating the reader on the importance of logistics. Their lengthy digressions stopped the story dead, and–curiously–never really impacted it.

A Quickie Review

Many Star Wars Expanded Universe novels are loved by legions of fans, such as Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn books.  Others are almost unanimously despised, such as The Crystal Star by Vonda M.

Score: 3/5
