Labyrinth of Evil (Star Wars: The Dark Lord Trilogy, #1)

The war that erupted in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones is nearing its boiling point, as the dauntless Separatist forces continue their assault on the teetering Republic-and the diabolical triumvirate of Count Dooku, General Grievous, and their Master, Darth Sidious, fine-tune their strategy for conquest. In Episode III Revenge of the Sith the fates of key play

As per usual, after I saw Star Wars Episode III: The Revenge of the Sith for the first time, I wanted more. This novel is the prequel to the movie, occurring between episodes II and III. It fills in nicely a lot of plot-data, but it doesn’t do much else. Luceno seemed afraid to explore the Obi-Wan/Anakin dynamics of this time period, something which, thankfully, did not hamper Matthew Stover when he wrote the novelization of Episode III. Obi-Wan and Anakin are the reason I love Star Wars, and I

Abridged Audiobook

It’s Star Wars, so you don’t get a long review. The audiobooks by Random House come complete with sound effects and music. They’re really well done. If you like audiobooks anyway, the Star Wars ones from Random House are worth your time.

It’s Star Wars, so you don’t get a long review. The audiobooks by Random House come complete with sound effects and music. They’re really well done. If you like audiobooks anyway, the Star Wars ones from Random House are worth your time.

The only thing you really need to know about this is that it takes place between the 2nd and 3rd movies (in canon order, not release order). It doesn’t do much for background and assumes you’ve seen the first couple of movies so you know the names and general state of the galaxy. While it may say #1 in a trilogy, it’s not a starting place.

But you already knew all of that and are just wondering if it is good. Yeah, it’s pretty good. What we get is a lot more Anakin and Obi-Wan off trying to save the galaxy. We get to see some of Anakin’s brashness and frustrations with the Order, and how well Palpatine plays everyone. I think there needs to be even more of how Anakin went from Jedi to Dark Lord, but there’s a solid foundation of anger and frustration here that was never explored well in the movies. I assume there is more in the 2nd book (which I think is the 3rd movie in book form?), so between those two books we might have the story the movies failed to tell.

If you’re the person who desperately wanted Revenge of the Sith to be good, but couldn’t get past Anakin’s jump from whiny brat to full Sith over an afternoon, try this book out.
