We now return you to the regularly scheduled Conviction discussion Wink

Personally I'm glad the "old Daala" is back. What with the way she was portrayed in the beginning of the series I felt like I was in some Star Wars Twilight Zone universe. The universe has been righted and I'm feeling back to normal.

I think Allston left intriguing leads for Golden and Denning to follow up on. I'm looking forward to Ascension and Apocalypse.

Conviction in hand, thanks to Mara. Seven chapters in and I'm intrigued.

Good grief. I knew you'd read it fast, but still! I fully expect you to be finished by tomorrow. Wink

They're short chapters! I'm really not that far in.

All right, I'm ready.

Another non-spoilery note: I found that Mara's copy of Conviction had a few misspellings. Anyone else notice this?

Bravo, Padme! I agree with all of the above points. You summed it up quite nicely. Smile

Thanks, Mara! I'm sure I missed quite a few things, but those were the main points I remembered.

What did everyone think of Vestara's journal?

I'm mixed about the journal. On one hand, it was a great tool to show up some very basic but important differences between Jedi and Sith. It showed up the little things rather then the big things that are typically shown. On the other hand, it felt like they were trying to make us feel sorry for Vestara and was done to make those who dislike her change their mind. I personally don't like it when stories do that.

I see it in a more simple way. It's just a reflection of a clash of cultures. What it's really common to anyone is something completely new for Vestara.

I'm only about halfway through, what with finals and all sucking my life away, but thus far I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised with Conviction. The narrative is tight, perhaps the best example of it in the series so far. Usual Allston tone that I feel matches the film universe fairly well.

Honestly, I think this could become the best entry in FotJ for me. Definitely a huge step up from Vortex.
