Revan: Star Wars (the Old Republic) (Star Wars) by Drew Karpyshyn
Revan: Star Wars (the Old Republic) (Star Wars)

Kacey, August 13, 2014

I really enjoyed that a lot of this book took place on the Sith world of Dromund Kaas. After reading the Darth Bane series which established the Rule of Two and seeing the Rule of Two in place throughout the Star Wars movies, I loved seeing what a Sith society (Sithciety?) looked like. The book is told through the eyes of Revan, a sort-of Jedi, and Lord Scourge, a Sith. As usual, Drew Karpyshyn is able to masterfully write and develop characters and events from both sides of the force. I can't wait for the next one to come out!

City of Heavenly Fire (Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare
City of Heavenly Fire (Mortal Instruments #6)

Kacey, August 13, 2014

Finally!! The epic conclusion is here!! My only complaint is the lack of finality. After 6 books you want there to be the feeling that the story has ended. The world will return to a new sense of peace, at least for awhile. New stories will always emerge just as there were decades of peace between Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices series) and City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments series). Frustratingly, I felt that City of Heavenly Fire was almost focused more on setting up for Cassandra Clare's new shadowhunter series The Dark Artifices than concluding The Mortal Instruments. There was just too much "putting the cart before the horse" for me to give it five stars but still very exciting and full of laughs and tears. Worth reading!

Shadow Hunter (Star Wars: Darth Maul) by Michael Reaves
Shadow Hunter (Star Wars: Darth Maul)

Kacey, July 23, 2014

To be honest, Darth Maul is not my favorite Star Wars character. So if you like him, you'll probably enjoy this book a lot more than I did. I will admit that I still got sucked into the story. It got quite exciting! I kept wondering how this was going to fit into the storyline already established by the book Darth Plagueis and the movie Episode I. I was left guessing until the last few chapters. I also enjoyed meeting some interesting new creatures Reaves introduced and towards the end I simply couldn't put it down.

Cloak of Deception (Star Wars) by James Luceno
Cloak of Deception (Star Wars)

Kacey, July 18, 2014

This book was much better than I thought it would be! Looking at where this falls in the Star Wars timeline, I assumed it would just be the book version of Episode I. Wrong! This story is a precursor and let me say that the author sets up the future events in Episode I quite masterfully. I loved getting to know Qui Gon Jinn more and following him on these adventures. The ending is quite exciting with lots of twists and unexpected revelations. Definitely worth reading!
