I enjoyed this book. It has a brisk pace, and Theron was a cool main character that could actually be hampered by the fact that he wasn't a Jedi (i.e. his leg cramping).

The only thing I didn't care for was the massive amount of melodramatics surrounding Theron's parentage. It was just painfully awkward to read. Karpyshyn didn't use the proper gravitas to establish that subplot in a way that was realistic, so it felt like I was reading a bad soap opera.

But the action? Oh, it was sweet.

I liked the drama of the subplot. I thought it worked well in adding a little weight to the story that was missing with all the Theron action.

Agreed. The family drama and all the action really made this one feel a little like Classic OT. This was a great one. Love the author, era, and the characters they focused on.
