Fate of the Jedi: Omen is the second book in the series and the debut Star Wars novel for Christie Golden. Omen picks up almost straight after the previous book Outcast with the enigmatic mental illness shattering the minds of young Jed Knights whilst Luke and Ben Skywalker continue their journey to discover to the mysterious and perilous Kathol Rift.

Omen wisely keeps the same lighter tone and high level of quality established in the first book of this series Outcast. I was very pleased to see that the book had a good variety of plotlines and that Christie Golden has taken the opportunity to create a selection of new characters to mark her first entry into the Star Wars universe. The plotlines of Omen show how the situation on Coruscant is getting worse as the Jedi are under harsh scrutiny from the government whilst more Jedi Knights seem to be going insane. This feeds into Luke and Ben Skywalkers journey as it expands to include trying to vindicate the Jedi Order by explaining why Jedi are losing their minds. These plotlines are great fun despite their serious overtones as we see the Solo family go to a livestock exhibition and Luke and Ben meet the enigmatic Aing-Tii. However the most interesting development is the introduction of the Lost Tribe of the Sith. I wont spoil their story except to say that they have been out of touch with galactic events for a long time. This group are clearly going to be massive players in the story and Christie Golden delivers an interesting world with some fascinating new characters. The back story of the Tribe can be read in the Lost Tribe of the Sith ebooks that are being released as a tie in series to Fate of the Jedi which are written by John Jackson Miller.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Debut 26 Nov 2009
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
The Story: With Luke Skywalker exiled and seeking answers to Jacen Solo's fall to the dark side, more Jedi Knights begin succumb to a mysterious psychosis that makes them dangerous and homicidal, Chief of State Natasi Daala whips up and exploits growing anti-Jedi sentiment for her own gain. Meanwhile on the backwater planet of Kesh, a lost tribe of Sith emerge as a new threat to the Galaxy.

The Good: This is a brilliant debut in the Star Wars Galaxy by Christie Golden, replacing the woeful Karen Travis. Omen is well written in an efficient style, with good dialogue. The author revels in exploring the inner thoughts of a wide range of characters like Jysella Horn, Vestara Khai and Ben and Luke Skywalker. Towards the end there is even an interestingly philosophical look at the nature of time travel and religious belief, albeit an all too short one. The plot moves along at a very solid pace. In particular, the look at the Lost Sith Tribe and the politcial wrangling between the GA and the Jedi are very well handled. The author makes great use of the source material, seeming to have an encylopaedic knowledge of all that has gone before in the EU, which is hugely impressive.

The Bad: The book is perhaps too short, which is unfortunate. Certain characters, such as Han Solo and Allana, appear mostly as deadwoood, adding nothing to the overall plot. The love scenes between Jaina Solo and Jag Fel fell very flat for me also, with clunky dialogue and generally awkward handling.

Overall a very good debut and one of the first genuinely orginal and exciting Star Wars novels since Betrayal in 2006. A great effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Omen of things to come 6 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was a short but important book in the Fate of the Jedi series. The One Sith are mentioned but have not yet announced themselves to the Jedi or the galaxy. The Lost tribe of the Sith are finally ending their seclusion after 5000 year.

The story. More Jedi are falling victim to the strange illness that causes them to have paranoid delusions that everyone they know has been replaced by imposters. The only similar trait they seem to have is that they are exhibiting powers and abilities in the force that they never learned abilities that were used last by Jacen Solo. Han and Leia while rising their "adopted daughter" Allana are trying their best to defuse the continued hostilities between the Jedi and the GA government. This could escalate with Jaina Solo leading a secrete strike force of Jedi to capture the affected Jedi (so they can receive proper treatment) before the GA can get their hands on them.

Luke and Ben still in exile follow a lead that takes them to the race of force users who are most adept to the "Flow walking" technique that Jacen used to seduce other Jedi to his side. Here the force is not seen simply as Light or Dark but as more of a rainbow. Though Luke does not agree with their philosophies he cannot deny their abilities in the force. It is great to see Luke learn a couple of new trick to add to his already impressive force abilities.

A good story sowing the seeds for things to come. I always judge a book to be good if it leaves me wanting to continue reading the next book in the series immediately. All in all a good but shorter than average Star Wars book. I can see many important events in the future coming from this. This book must be read right to the end as big things happen in the last couple of chapters.
