THE STORY:
Set in a whole new era (1,032 BBY) this book ties into the comic book series of the same name and tells the story of Kerra Holt, a Jedi alone deep in Sith space dedicated to bringing down the derranged agents of the dark side that rule there.

WHAT'S GOOD:
At first I was dubious of the setting of this book since altogether too many Star Wars stories of late have featured legions of Sith ('Legacy', 'The Old Republic', 'Fate of the Jedi' etc), in my opinion dilluting the potency of the Sith as antagonists. However, Miller has created a fascinating array of Sith Lords who are unique in their philosophies and characters and I found myself deeply compelled by the idea of a single Jedi simply trying to do as much good as she can with very limited resources and no backup. Also, many other reviewers have slated Kerra Holt as being boring, but I think the fact that she is just an ordinary Jedi (not the Chosen One or some darkly conflicted anti-hero) is what makes her story powerful. I had feared, like many others, that not having read 'Knight Errant: Aflame' (the comics which precede the story here) I would therefore find it hard to connect to this story. That is simply not the case, however, and Miller manages to provide us with enough information about Kerra's previous exploits without rehashing them (or ruining them for when I do get around to reading it!).

WHAT'S BAD:
This is Miller's first novel and his background in comics is obvious from the structure of the writing. He has not entirely successfully crossed the media divide and there's all too much of the 'skip a bit between issues and then recap it at the start of next issue' style of episodic storytelling which works in comics but not in a novel.

I read the prologue one evening just before I went to bed and couldn't make sense of what was going on. Figuring I must be tired, I put the book down and went to sleep. I tried reading it again the next day and still found myself confused. The first chapter was little better and by the end of the second chapter I realised this would be a tough read.

I'm not saying John Jackson Miller is a bad writer. I just have the same problem with his style as I do with Matthew Stover's; it's very laborious, hard going and really rather boring.

The story felt like it was more of an introduction to the Jedi and Sith; making the point that Jedi are good and Sith are bad. This in itself is good because this book is set a generation before the Darth Bane novels so it would be a perfect starting point for anyone thinking of reading the books in chronological order.

However, I thought the plot was quite weak. What I mean is there didn't seem to be much of one. The Errant Knight finds herself on three different planets all ruled by different Sith Lords. The first planet is run by a deluded man who thinks he's God. The second is ruled by what appear to be autistic children. The third is ruled by a slightly more feasible character but one who didn't have much depth to her character. Nor for that matter did the main character. In fact the only character that didn't feel two dimensional was the mercenary chap.

Anyway, the book ended with the main character not having achieved very much and left me wondering what the point of the story was. The only things I can think to compliment are the action and fight sequences. They were very well written.

I read this straight after (STAR WARS: KNIGHT ERRANT, VOLUME 1: AFLAME) BY Paperback (Author) Paperback Published on (07 , 2011), you do not need to read the comic to read the book. There are some revelations in this book that are built in in later series of the comics. The main theme of this book is how over matched Kerra Holt is being stuck behind enemy lines. She tries maintain a balance between striking at the Sith Lords and helping people in there territories. The Sith Lords in this are fighting among themselves to capturing and re-capturing each other planets. The people of the planets have given up hope and just want to live out their existence. Holt finds some allies of convenience to help her, but even the mercenaries of this corner of space have given up hope. The story is ok with Holt being an ok character no specular, I guess this is to show how over matched she is, but I would have like to see her leaning new powers or at least taking on a Sith lord in combat, but no it is more guerrilla warfare and even that is pretty ineffectual. An on read, but really for Star Wars fans who want to satisfy their own chronology.

This was one of the first Star Wars novels I have read. It was a good introduction and all round a solid book! Set in the the past, waaay before the films, it depicts a time when the sith were strong, and the action is set in sith-ruled space. We get to see various different sith, who have different traits and rule in different ways, so there is plenty of variety in the story to keep the reader interested. Not all of them are cruel (at least, on first appearance!) The main character is well fleshed-out and a lone Jedi trying to do good in sith territory, so you do root for her! All in all an interesting read and a good introduction to a different period in the star wars universe. In my opinion it beats the Darth Bane novels!

On a side note, the graphic novel of this has been released (there is a preview in this novel) but it is not as good in my opinion, so I'd try this first!
