From what I can recall, I thought the reveals/spoilers in Darth Plagueis didn't add much to TPM. Stover's Revenge of the Sith added levels of philosophy and characterization that made the movie more enjoyable, but the Plagueis reveals were like trivia. Plagueis was alive during TPM, Plagueis organized the Boonta Eve classic etc. All well and good, but does it really enhance the story?

Well, Plagueis did answer the question of whether or not the Sith was responsible for Anakin's conception. That was pretty big.

That sounds like something out of a bad fan fiction... Laughing

^ You should pick up "The Wrath of Darth Maul" although a young adult novel, it is one of the best stories about Maul out there. It's the closest thing to a full Maul biography that there is. It tells from his training as a child under Sidious right up and into ep.1 a great read, and a must if your on a Maul fling

That's because it's by Ryder Windham. He writes the best canon bios.

"Saboteur" is by Luceno so it should seem familiar. I am guessing you have the initial print run of Shadow Hunter, as the more recent one that was re-released in conjunction with Episode I in 3D as well as Darth Plagueis has a second short story by Luceno titled "Restraint."

TBH, haven't had a chance to read that one, though I have read the short story coupled with the re-release of the Episode I novelization by Luceno titled "End Game," which tied in with Darth Plagueis. Based upon the subject matter, it sounds like "Restraint" ties in with The Wrath of Darth Maul.

My copy has Restraint! I bought Shadow Hunter a few weeks ago, seems my copy is jam packed!

I got in the mail today Cloak of Deception which will be next! Also in the mail was Dark Rendezvous. I've heard good things. I might save Dark Rendezvous for a rainy day in the future, after Cloak I'm eager to get into Labyrinth of Evil.

I'm overwhelmed with Star Wars books and thats a good thing. After the Vader trilogy I'll get into both Han Solo trilogies (my second fave movie character after Luke) As I read these PT era books I am slowly making my way through Children of the Jedi and it really isn't so bad when I only read one chapter a day.

One day I'll get around to watching the Clone Wars, but so much to read!

Shadow Hunter was a fun book. Though the fates of the good guys was a bit disheartening.

Saboteur was also a cool little story.

Now Cloak of Deception.

I have to say after I finish Cloak I'm going to read something a bit more fun. I'm reading too many Sith books in a row!

So after Cloak I'm going to reunite myself with Wraith Squadron, by reading .... um Wraith Squadron.

I just wanted to comment on the article on EUCantina about upcoming EU material:

Just FYI, even though the Dark Horse website says "Star Wars: Legacy #4" is coming out this week, it isn't actually.

The book is shipping next week, according to both Comixology (who gets the info on shipping from Diamond) and also the store I go to.

I buy this comic and I like it a lot (Ania Solo is a really good character thus far). And I encourage others to check it out. Next week.
