I like it. Mostly.

I like that she has a new lightsaber. Geting the old ones back somehow would make no sense.

Does this mean that yellow lightsabers are part of the new canon now? That was something I didn't think would carry over. Yellow lightsabers, yes. Jaina Solo, no. Whatever, Disney.

^The Jedi Temple Guards in TCW had yellow lightsabers, so it was already part of canon.

I have to admit it feels more like a comic book cover than a book cover, but it's striking. Looking forward to seeing a physical copy.

^ I never got that far in TCW, so I didn't know. They have really cool designs. Cool

As I said in the "EU book you're reading now" thread, this book was beautiful. It is easily the best of the new canon books and probably one of the best new SW books I've read in a number of years.

At its core, this book is about Quinlan Vos and Asajj Ventress. Ventress was, of course, in many episodes of TCW, and Golden adapts her well to the written page. Quinlan Vos is the Vos of the Dark Horse comics - the cocky undercover agent, walking the edge of the dark side.

I'm not sure how much should be credited to Golden, and how much to Katie Lucas, Matt Michnovetz, and Dave Filoni, who wrote the 8 scripts upon which the book was based, but the work that the four of them have done is incredible.

If you like Quinlan Vos, read this book. If you like Asajj Ventress, read this book. If you like The Clone Wars, read this book.

@GrandMaster: I've listened to a lot of Christie's interviews, and from the sounds of it, she added a lot, but the trick is that you can't tell where the scripts end and her additional material kicks. She did a great job.

Anyone have any idea how the chapters for Dark Disciple break down into what could have been seen on screen in each episode? Just curious.

Well Christie used just about everything she could from the scripts they gave her.
