REVIEWS . . .

Friday 8th September
[] []
[Red Harvest] [] Red Harvest
By Joe Schreiber
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

The book started out quite intriguing. The author managed to lay some thick atmosphere on the Sith academy, which was the main backdrop for this tale. But not even after 100 pages, I could see that there was no real plan behind it. We were just thrown from one senseless and gory massacre till the next one. The few characters that got kinda interesting got killed rather fast and those that made it rough mostly did not bother me. Lots of side stories cut off by death without any conclusion, which would be positively tragic, if the book had any interesting arcs to get it to the end.
The gory element also seemed extremely repetitive and it was a challenge and a chore to get through its barely 260 pages. One of the worst books I have ever read and the dark exception to the rule, that The Old Republic books rule!

[ Before the Awakening ] [] Before the Awakening
By Greg Rucka
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

Greg Rucka is capable of perfectly catching the vibe and the characters of Star Wars. All his books I have read to this day felt very true to the franchise. He finds a fitting scenario for our new heroes and makes it interesting, instead of creating a gimmick plot devoid of character.
All three tales are very true to their characters and all are very fun to read, giving small glimpses into their lives, before they all changed. This is one easy recommendation.
