I'm about 100 pages in and liking the book, but not loving it. It does keep a good momentum going, but at the current pace I worry the book will run out of plot before the end.


Okay, guess I had nothing to worry about. This was a pretty good book, and an improvement over Death Troopers for me (I never read Red Harvest). My only problem was with the graphic description of violence - it felt too graphic for a SW book. I'm okay with it in other contexts (like A Song of Ice and Fire) but here it was just too much.

I really liked this book. Liked all the characters and the way they were written. The violence was a bit much but it made it feel not so much a SW book which was ok to me.

The book was a good read no question about that. Maul was depicted pretty much exactly the way I see him in my mind. I really liked the idea of a moving/reconfiguring prison. It served a great purpose in how they set up and moved prisoners around, while at the same time giving the set location a life of its own.

Boo to Delrey then. Joe's idea would have been more satisfying to me.

I agree that would have brought it to an almost Zahn/Scoundrals level of a last chapter twist. But we got nothing instead

That's what I love (and will miss) about the coutinuity monster that is the SW universe. Because that would mean
