I am reading Allegiance.

After reading Choices of One, I know... Stupid, right?

Enjoying it so far, I love the stormtrooper characters, and anything with Mara is alright with me.


I read these the same way! It still read well in reverse I just kept telling myself "prequel!!"

And I want to finish the collected edition before I start Lost Tribe of the Sith: Spiral, which I understand takes place after.


Man, Spiral was very anticlimactic after the Collected Stories, IMO. That was one of the best novels I've read in a long time, but the comic was on a much smaller scale than the book. Just my advice, but I'd let it breathe a few weeks before I dove into the comic. I wish I had.

And yes, Spiral #2 just came out last Wednesday.


Yes. I think it's a nice continuation, but not as big as the books. And really, it's only one year later. You can't have world-altering events all the time.

I'm just sad that they're not continuing the comics after Spiral is done (I think 5 issues?)

I'm still working my way through Mercy Kill. Enjoying it, although it's lighter on the humor than I expected from Allston.

I'm about half way though Rebel Dawn, book 3 of the Han Solo trilogy.

I gather you're talking about the Han Solo triology? I love them! I can't put them down. I'm going to be a bit bummed when I'm done with Rebel Dawn. I know what I'm going to read next, a non Star Wars book, but when I get back to reading Star Wars it'll be tough.

Yes, apologies I should have been specific. I read the Han Solo Adventures straight after the trilogy. There is quite a change of style but they are great stories as well and intertwine nicely with the trilogy. I'd suggest those if you haven't already read them.

Thanks for the recommendation. If I can find them I'll certainly get them.

Finished Dracula, and will start Annihilation later. As I showed the book to my sister, she asked me 'what does annie hellation mean?' Confused

Finished Ringworld. It's a decent enough book. Good characters, though I felt the ending was a little sparse.

Now on to Scoundrels.

I'm reading The Last Jedi. It's sad, but it's also good. I can see why they left out the Coruscant Nights title.

I just finished reading The Courtship of Priness Leia and am reading Slave Ship of the bounty hunter series. I just recently got into the star wars lore.

I didn't know the ARCs had already been sent out. I'm particularly interested in reading that because I haven't read the other books. I wonder if it can exist as a standalone.
