Format: Hardcover
I love the Fate of the Jedi series. This is another great book. The series is a little slow moving, this book does move things forward a bit, but not as much as I would have liked. The reason I don't mind the slow simmer boil of the series is because there are many issues and what the series lacks in speed it makes up for in character development.

The book lets Ben Skywalker have more print time. I have to say this has worked well as from the last series I found Ben as whiny little brat, he seems the have matured considerably in his mid teens, and his military experience is also shining through. He also has the Connan like legacy of not one being the sone of 2 of the most powerful Jedi of their generation, but he was born on the battlefield.

The story. Following Sith apprentice Vestara Khai to the planet Dathomiri, Luke and Ben Skywalker find a scoitity in transition. Dathomiri formally dominated by the female darkside users the Nightsisters, now has more accepting of males. The most powerful and influential male clan known as Broken Columns starting to form a union with the Raining Leaves clan. This does not sit well remaining Nightsisters, who intend to destroy both clans for breaking their traditions. Vestara has also in infiltrated the Raining Leaves, to hide from the Skywalkers. However does her true agenda go even further as Ben say "Nightsisters snd Sith go together like caf and cream". The Solo's minus Jaina also make an appearence on Dathomiri, before heading back to the Core.

On Coruscant Daala makes good on her threat to use the Mandos against the Jedi. However this does not go over as planned, and she must deal with the political backlash of her increasing anti Jedi stance, and her predecessor.

This is the best novel i have read so far in the series, but it only just tops Abyss. If you have not read any of the other novels, i warn you Omen is SLOW. The story moves along at a pace that is satisfying, and continues to progress the various arcs of the series so that when you think you are desperate to find out what happens next in one arc, you find yourself completely imersed in the current arc. Their are also tantilising leads which keep you wondering "what if" quite a lot. The Legacy era novels seem to be linking up with the Legacy era comics more and more as the this series follows on from the Legacy of the Force series. In short we know the what happens in the future and we know what happened in the past but how did we get their. Find out! read Backlash and the rest of the series and you will not be dissapointed. But dont expct any conclusive end, each novel is part of a whole, and can not be fully appreciated without reading the rest of the series.

By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 Mar. 2011
Format: Hardcover
Whilst I'm a huge fan of Star Wars, I always worry about each new title, not that I don't expect a good story but because its such a huge franchise that the name alone will sell any project containing its name.

Each series has something special to offer and to be honest I'm more at home with the Skywalker/Solo's than at any other point in the Universes vast history. As such it made this title too tempting to resist which I suppose means I'm damned to the darkside. LOL

Unfortunately whilst the plot is gripping, the characters have lost a lot of their lustre, whether this is due to poor planning or lack of understanding of the characters I'm not sure but what really annoyed me was the clunkiness of the language used by the author. Add to this poor story direction and forcing (if you'll pardon the pun) the characters into situations that clearly they didn't want to enter made this all in a rather annoying read. With luck this will improve in future titles however at the moment if you want some good Star Wars writing then perhaps I can suggest Timothy Zahn or Sean Williams.

After reading the legacy era of the books which I thoroughly enjoyed, I was anxious to see how these books were. I enjoyed these easily as much as the legacy era and they were a great continuation of story. I can't wait for the future books in the storyline. The full set may be expensive for each era of books however the money was well spent and I haven't had this much fun reading in a long time.
Would recommend to anyone interested in star wars books or star wars itself these are such an insight into the story.

Format: Hardcover
Although the first two books of the "Fate of the Jedi Series" were rather lacklustre and pretty boring, this does not apply to the numbers three (Abyss) en four (Backlash). The funny thing is that the first installment (outcast) was also written by Allston, and as said, pretty boring, but that this fourth installment is much improved. We are getting somewhere! Instead of three, there are only two storylines in this book but somewhat more intertwined. Also, it was wonderful to have Luke, Leia and Han back together again even if only for a short time! That part of the book was particularly interesting and great fun to read. I also liked the parts concerning Allana's adventure on her own. I particularly liked the way she works together with her little Nexu cub. A pity though we didn't get to see any more of Zekk, nor read much about what has happened to him after his disappearance at the end of the Second Galactic Civil War. Let us hope we get to know more in one of the next installments. Furthermore, Allston has done an excellent job in fleshing out the young Sith girl, Vestara, even further than what we saw in Abyss. Even so far that one of the main protagonists, Ben Skywalker, is actually starting to get a crush on her even if he doesn't want to because he very well knows what she is and stands for. But, she did do some unexpected things in this book, like saving Luke (for her own reasons of course) and the way she handled the night sisters was very, very nice, and rather unexpected too. Back on Couruscant it's business as usual with yet another unknown young Jedi going mad and not causing any real damage. But, in this book we finally get to see some more of Daala and her reasoning, so the madness actually leads to something this time.Read more ›
