Product Description

Review

" FULL OF LIGHTSABER BATTLES, THE JEDI PHILOSOPHY, AND LOTS OF NEW LIFE-FORMS."
"--Chicago Sun-Times
"
" Reaves writes with a creative flair, allowing readers to experience an almost cinematic sensation as they move through the story. The language is colorful, the action scenes are dynamic, and the dialogue is realistic.... Shadow Hunter is a very good "Star Wars" novel that reads as easily as a comic book.... Reaves does an excellent job."
"--Winston-Salem Journal
" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm a huge fan of the Star Wars Universe so when I get chance to delve into the dark times when the Jedi were in hiding and Vader was at his pinnacle, I really can't wait to see what happens. This book by Michael and Maya hits a lot of my expectations with a cracking lead character, some wonderful illusion and brings to the fore a sleight of hand so much so that you're left wondering how its going to continue so much so that when I hit about half way through and was left for a while in the doldrums until it picked up again a little later, almost as if the story had been expanded from a very sharp novella to reach novel length.

This of course left me feeling a little cheated and to be blunt I'd rather have cut out a lot of the unnecessary bumf that was added purely so I could keep to the meat of the tale. That said it is still a cracking story but for me, the editing could have been tighter to keep the reader on the edge of their seats.

THE STORY:
17 BBY. When a leading member of the resistance to the Empire is captured by Darth Vader, Jedi survivor Jax Pavan and his allies must attempt a rescue or risk the exposure of all their resistance allies.

WHAT'S GOOD:
I liked how much of this book features the structure of organisations like Whiplash, showing the seeds of what would later become the Rebel Alliance.
I also enjoyed the section where, without it ever being specifically highlighted, we start to see Jax sliding towards the dark side - to the point that you genuinely wonder if he'll sacrifice the life of an ally for the sake of expedience. He reminded me of a less-insufferable Legacy era Jacen Solo.
Overall, the tone of the book nicely captures the desperate feeling of the seemingly-hopeless fight against the Empire.

WHAT'S BAD:
Jax's closest allies are two characters who have become increasingly annoying with every appearance. Here Den Dhur's role is little more than to worry out loud about everything everyone is doing all the time.
I-Five on the opposite end of the scale, but actually more irritating, continues on his ridiculous path to... well, it seems Michael Reaves will only be happy when his creation becomes the God of the Star Wars universe. A droid which has already achieved sentience and is an overpowered war machine, here I-Five effectively becomes immortal, develops Force-sensitivity and becomes a real boy (no, seriously). It's ridiculous.
The other irritation for me was how shoe-horned in the appearances of Mandalore and Dathomir are. It's basically little more than name-dropping to no discernible purpose. Jax's trip to Dathomir is prompted literally by a random impulse, taking him away from the main storyline for a bit, only to return him a bit later.

I've read most Star Wars books and this one is pretty lame so far. I'm 3/4 way thru and it's taking me months unlike most other SW books that I breeze thru in a month or less.

*Spoiler alert* Ok so his partner dies in the beginning.. do we really have to hear about it chapter after chapter? Use the force and get over it or something. Pah. Oh.. name your new ship after her why don't you, let's remember for the remainder of the book, lame. The main guy Jax, his Jedi training was cut short with Order 66 so his skills aren't up to scratch and it shows I tell ya! Faffing about with this and that, not accomplishing much, snore. And his two side kicks, that driod and the other one.. torch em both *turns on Boba Fett flame thrower, aim, whooooosh!

Why two stars? Cause for once it's ok to read (3/4 read) a SW book where despite the odds, the main characters always seem to have a plan that succeeds and get away with it without getting a scratch.. *stares in the direction of Han, Leia and Luke

This novel virtually follows on directly from the ‘Coruscant Nights’ trilogy (published a few years ago and concerned with various events following the fallout from ‘Revenge of the Sith’ and Order 66). As such it becomes a fourth, unnecessary and unneeded part to a trilogy. It doesn’t really offer anything new or not already seen in those previous three related novels and as a sequel just repetitively treads over old ground.

The eponymous Jedi, Jax Pavan, has never been the most interesting of Jedi heroes; being a bit too generic and clichéd. And this novel doesn’t really add anything or benefit the character. Although, arguably his story was not fully told and there was some scope for re-visiting the character this book doesn’t really maximise on the opportunity. It seems content to follow the character around from one place to the next in a seemingly almost directionless fashion when he deals with his personal angst and emotional turmoil. It is true that as a Jedi and an individual he has a lot of issues and concerns to deal with. He is certainly a figure deserving of sympathy. But far too much of the page count is taken up with these factors whilst other areas of the novel, which might have been of greater interest, are glossed over or not sufficiently focussed upon.

The area which particularly could have done with more attention is the assassination attempt on Palpatine. It forms the main sub plot of the novel but could have easily been used for a main plot. The book focuses on it intermittently, often when it bears some passing influence on what Pavan is doing. Often this means it gets pushed in to the background a bit at its most intriguing.
