Format: Mass Market Paperback
A very good book, leads on well from Vector Prime and has very good writing in it which kept me hooked :D. I found the parts on Dantooine especially good. The parts with Jacen seemed to be a little dragged out, but I suppose it's all building up the tension, and expanding on Jacen's character, talking of characters there are many Major characters throughout the series, part of the reason I like this book so much is that it doesn't really have a main character, which means you can choose your own. Michael A. Stackpole creates a great atmosphere in which you can almost feel the character's emotions. So, overall, a five star book, the Dark Tide is, in my opinion, among the top books in this series, even though it's still, in a way, part of the introduction, but a series such as this needs a good introduction and it's certainly got one with this and Vector Prime.

HASH(0x9cf4127c) out of 5 stars Choppy dialogue, but advances NJO 2 Mar. 2011
By Enjolras - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I fondly remember Michael A. Stackpole's X-Wing series and I, Jedi. He's perhaps the best writer when it comes to dogfights and Rogue Squadron. I don't think he's as strong in the New Jedi Order with Dark Tide I: Onslaught. The book is fine, but seems to pale in comparison with its predecessor Vector Prime. It almost seems like Stackpole ignored the last bits of Vector Prime. The Yuuzhan Vong are all over the galaxy now, even though their advance ships were destroyed. Han still seems upset at Anakin over Chewie's death, but the way Salvatore portrayed it one would have thought Han had forgiven him. Most of this is acceptable. However, what really bothered me was the dialogue. It's pretty choppy. Stackpole's characters seem unable or unwilling to use contractions ("will not" instead of "won't"). At times, the dialogue just doesn't flow well. Overall, this is an enjoyable book and it advances the New Jedi Order series admirably, but I found it a bit more difficult to lose myself every time I winced at some poorly phrased sentence. Overall, 3.5 stars.
HASH(0x9cf41b1c) out of 5 stars Really like this one 18 Mar. 2013
By Shane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dark Tide Onslaught: After the horrifying events of Vector Prime the story of the Jedi we have come to love continues as they fight for their lives and freedom from the invasion fleet of the Yuuzhan Vong. Stackpole paints a perfect picture of the Republics vial new enemy as they continue their deadly march towards the galactic core. The detail written within gives the reader the feeling as if they are the characters themselves as they struggle against a much more violent enemy then we saw in previous installments. The storyline continues its dark turn but is wonderfully balanced by the love that Luke and Mara hold within their hearts.
