Overall, I HATED Invincible for a number of reasons:
1) It was way too short. It seemed like Nickel One was an opening skirmish, and then they were suddenly at the climax. Way too fast-paced for me.
2) It didn't feel like a LotF book. This is hard to explain, but the other books had a certain . . . something that this lacked. Not necessarily something good, but just a feeling that I got when I was reading it, knowing I was reading a LotF book. Invincible, I felt, lacked that.
3) Zekk! Where did he go? That really bugged me, and I was mad when they never told you.
4) Ok people, you knew this was coming . . . CAEDUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! His death made me very sad, and I can never forgive Troy Denning EVER. Maybe in Star by Star, he was told to kill Anakin, but this series was largely HIS idea. He loaded the gun, pointed it, and pulled the trigger. I was satisfied with Caedus in Invincible, but I think he needed more time as a fearsome and good Sith Lord, even if it wasn't while ruling the galaxy.
Also, many sources, as well as Jaina herself, say that Jacen came back before he died. I'm sorry, but that is utter nonsense. How did he become Jacen? He was crazed throughout the whole duel, and when he reached out to Tenel Ka and Allana to warn them, that wasn't a JEDI thing to do, it was a very Caedus thing to do. He wanted them to be safe at all times, from the time he became a Sith. The fact that he was thinking about them just shows how he has decided who he values more as family: them, and not the Solos.
Overall, I was sorely disappointed.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.
