Great line! That was a pretty cool book, better than the Jedi Path IMO

The Wrath of Darth Maul by Ryder Windham. Reading the advanced arc for Maul: Lockdown got me wanting to read more about Maul, so I dived into this one. I haven't quite finished it, but I'm about 90% through the book. It covers a really good chunk of Maul's life, from childhood to The Phantom Menace. I'm also really enjoying it a lot. I'd definitely recommend checking it out. Some of the elements in the book get mentioned in Lockdown.

After all these years, the EU character game has gotten me back in the mood for "The Last of the Jedi", so I'm reading the first book: The Desperate Mission. Not including the ANH novelization, this is my first EU book since Crucible came out.

How did it go for you? I just binge-read the series in January, and found that it didn't hold up all that well. Watson has a weird sense of distance and travel time in the Star Wars galaxy that kept throwing me off.

I am currently reading The Lando Calrissian Adventures. They are okay, but seem difficult to reconcile with the later EU.

I didn't get far lol. I didn't even finish the first book. I actually was enjoying it, but things got busy and it slipped pretty low on my priority list.

I stopped in front of the Star Wars section in Barnes and Noble yesterday and had a sudden, overwhelming sense of sadness, as there were a few books there I did not recogize. I can't really explain, but it almost hurt. Sad

It isn't really EU, but I'm reading Star Wars and History.

Let me know what you think of that book, Reep. I felt it didn't dig deep enough on the topics.

^ I agree. The balance of quantity over depth was a downer. However with the great relations they came up with, combined with the photos this book was a must read.

I'm currently reading "Han Solo's Revenge." Good book. Can't put it down.

^I recently read that trilogy. They were okay, but I found Honor Among Thieves to be a more exciting Han Solo adventure.

ETA: I just finished Shadows of the Empire today. It was pretty good, but I got a little annoyed by the constant shifting of character perspectives - half a page of Vader, then 2 paragraphs of Luke, then a page of Xizor, then half a page of Luke (not an actual example). It made the story feel rather disjointed.

I'm waiting until "Honor Among Thieves" comes out in paper back before I buy it.

"Shadows of the Empire" was a good book. Unfortunately after a while I don't always remember details about a book I've read, so I don't remember the shifting perspectives, but I do remember that being a good book.

Wow, I can't believe it's been 8 months since I've been on this thread...crazy!

I finished Mercy Kill and it was "okay".


Last month, I re-read Truce at Bakura for a SW book club.

Right now, I'm on Crucible ...
