I just saw the First Look page at the official site and have to say, Wow! This is probably going to be another awful novel!

A two year girl has an "infectious desire to unravel [a] mystery"? I think not.

Han and Leia are still grieving two years later? How pathetic.

Plus, you get to pay hardcover prices to have the privilege to read prose from an author who best work has thus far been encyclopedia entries for the visual guides.

I think I'll be reading the summary at Wookiepedia.

Well, Allana should be about 6 years old... And I think it's good that they still grieve. Shows they still have at least part of their consciences left.

I thought she would be older, too. But it does annoy me the way the Star Wars children are so...smart for their young ages. Young Jacen and Jaina used to drive me insane! Like that whole ridiculous trip to the undergound of Coruscant...agh! At least Ben never did anything like that.

Yes, yes, my bad, and a very bad one indeed. Woke up on the wrong side of the grouch this morning. Embarassed

Still, my mistake is not likely to make for a better novel.

Carry on.

Well after all the death of LotF I could use some cheesey adventure yarn. Besides so much of Star Wars comes from whiny kids going on trips. Wink

I almost forgot about this book with all the hype from the 2009 novels. October 21st still seems a while away.

Me too! But my library ordered it, amazingly, so I'm going to just get it from there for now. This'll be the first Star Wars book in a long time that I haven't bought for myself. But I'm sure I'll buy it eventually.

That is weird. No LotF, but they do have Millenium Falcon? Neutral

They have Sacrifice, but that's it. Isn't that crazy? They choose the strangest things.

Strange. I wonder if they will switch scenes to other characters or if it will just have Han, Leia and Allana. I thought I heard something about Luke finding out reasons why Jacen turned to the Dark Side.

Well, that makes sense; I'm sure that if Han/Leia tell him Allana more he'll put two-and-two together.

Sorry, I was mistaken. I guess it was Outcast.

Finally, we get some insight into Allana.
What if shes more like Jacen then they want to admit, you know if shes got the animal empathy thing.
