5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book - Sad Ending
This is a brilliant book but it is a pity it has a sad ending as Thul dies (in the end). However, both of the Jedi twins survive and that is good because I like them a lot.
Zekk turns out to save the jedi twins and Boba Fett is assigned to kill Boran Thul but instead saves the jedi twins, zekk and what's his name - you know - the guy that is boran thuls son. Hope so...

3.0 out of 5 stars An anticlimatic end to the subseries.
THE STORY:
Nineteen years after 'Return of the Jedi', the young Jedi Knights, the New Republic fleet and the forces of the Diversity Alliance are all rushing towards a secret asteroid installation wherein is housed a bio-weapon designed to eradicate the human race.
WHAT'S GOOD:
Well, it's good to see all the characters of the series having their stories...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book - Sad Ending, 16 Dec. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: The Emperor's Plague (Star Wars Young Jedi Knights) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is a brilliant book but it is a pity it has a sad ending as Thul dies (in the end). However, both of the Jedi twins survive and that is good because I like them a lot.
Zekk turns out to save the jedi twins and Boba Fett is assigned to kill Boran Thul but instead saves the jedi twins, zekk and what's his name - you know - the guy that is boran thuls son. Hope so at least because if you have not read the bopoks before this one then you will be puzzled by this one. Tip - do not read any of the Vong books before these as the Vong books will tell you everything you need to know about this book and what happens and who dies and who doesn't.
Very good - enough to give it five stars - but it is not perfect like some of the Vong books and the Star Wars Attack of the Clones novel. Tip - there is now a book out about how the Star Wars Episode Three saga comes write up to the climax and then it leaves you to watch the film. I would pre-order yours if I was you because don't we want to spoil episode three by knowing every thing about it first. I do for one!!!!! Only joking!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is way out there! I give it a million stars!, 20 Jun. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Emperor's Plague (Star Wars Young Jedi Knights) (Mass Market Paperback)
Oh my god! Any one who is a Star Wars fan must have this book! From what I read Jacen and Jaina have really matured in the Force, with themselves, and with other people. Jacen and Tenel Ka are defenitly together, although Jaina and Zeek are takin it kinda slow. You really should read the book. There's all kind of action in there. Let's see, we have the plauge destroyed, the death of Raynars father, a little kiss at the end and...... Well if I keep goin I'll probably write the book for you. Which of course would take hours. Basically, if you are any type of Star Wars fan, this book is a nesecity in your collection. RUN OUT AND BUY IT TODAY! Bye!

5.0 out of 5 stars Words cant express how GREAT this book is., 6 Aug. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Emperor's Plague (Star Wars Young Jedi Knights) (Mass Market Paperback)
I love the young jedi knights series.I mean love them.And this book keeps up to the action of the series and Jacen and JAina's adventures.I wish though that Zekk had kissed Jaina when he had the chance.and I thought it was hilarious that Head Strong Tenel ka made the first move on Poor unsuspecting Jacen Solo.Also I thought the book was sad because just as Raynar finds his father,his father is killed by the very plague he worked sohard to protect.But I loved it (duh!)and I really recommand this book.Run out and buy it.You wont be dissappointed!

3.0 out of 5 stars An anticlimatic end to the subseries., 1 Dec. 2004
By 
Ian Tapley "thefragrantwookiee" - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THE STORY:
Nineteen years after 'Return of the Jedi', the young Jedi Knights, the New Republic fleet and the forces of the Diversity Alliance are all rushing towards a secret asteroid installation wherein is housed a bio-weapon designed to eradicate the human race.
WHAT'S GOOD:
Well, it's good to see all the characters of the series having their stories given some sort of conclusion, I was particularly pleased that Zekk finally figured out that being a bounty hunter isn't the best occupation for one trying to redeem themselves from the dark side (Duh!). Also, it's always a pleasure to read about Boba Fett and IG-88 (even if the latter is a bit out of character).
WHAT'S BAD:
First off, there's this plague. Why would the Emperor, a human, have a human-killing plague created? I mean, he was insane, but not stupid! On a related note, I have a nitpicky continuity issue; it says the plague was made by Evir Derricote, but he didn't start making bioweapons until after Palpatine's death (and died himself before Palpatine was resurrected). The fact that Han is back as a General, again, in this book bothered me. It's a bit hard to believe that he and Lando can resign and be reinstated as and when they choose. Generally, as the end of the subseries, this lacks the punch and conviction shown in 'Jedi Under Siege'.

1.0 out of 5 stars MIGHT be a good book if it weren't for several things, 14 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Emperor's Plague (Star Wars Young Jedi Knights) (Mass Market Paperback)
To start off, Jacen and Jaina don't act at ALL like they're 17 or 18 or whatever. I caught myself almost constantly thinking that these were 9 or 10 -year-olds. The childish reasoning is the same: "Hey, I know! Let's go make our friend come back, who made his OWN decision to go look at this huge new military/political faction whose relations are extremely shaky with the New Republic now, and possibly get ourselves and thousands of others killed by starting a war!! And the best part is, WE WON'T TELL ANYONE!!!" Han, Leia, Luke, and the rest have no depth at all and act like the stuffy grown-ups who run everything and appear as little more than scenery in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars THRILLING! NOT TO BE MISSED! I LOVED IT!, 29 Nov. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Emperor's Plague (Star Wars Young Jedi Knights) (Mass Market Paperback)
This book was a lot better than "Jedi Under Siege". KJA goes more into detail in this book and describes the battles much better than he did in "JUS". I loved the space battle, I loved the blaster battle on Ryloth, and I loved that fight between Lowbacca and Corrsk. Boba Fett and IG-88 were excellent in this book. At least Fett didn't kill the kids. And it's good to see Lusa back in action again. There were absolutely no flaws in this book. THIS BOOK WAS RIVETING FROM START TO FINISH! I GIVE IT A MILLION THUMBS UP-WAY UP!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I thought this book was great, 23 Dec. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Emperor's Plague (Star Wars Young Jedi Knights) (Mass Market Paperback)
I thought this book was great because there was a little bit of everything. I wish they told about what happened to Rabba and Aryn Dro Thul. I liked how Zekk realized that being a bounty Hunter was bad. I also thought the ending was written very well, like when Bornan Thul sacrificed himself. This book had a very good plot, with three things happening at once. I liked how every character played a key role in the story. Everything weaved together in the story, so there was never a dull moment. This book was fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars This book is sad., 20 Dec. 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: The Emperor's Plague (Star Wars Young Jedi Knights) (Mass Market Paperback)
I liked this book, accept for the part at the end. Bornan Thul and Rullak are shooting in the plague room and open up to types of diseases. One Quarren like Rullak, one Twi'lek several others and a human. Bornan Thul dies and so does Rullak. Nolaa Tarkona escapes and dies because of a slow acting plague. Then Raynar and the others leave and destroy the storehouse. And at the end, Zekk and Lusa decide to become Jedi Knights.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good ending for the story, 8 Jun. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Emperor's Plague (Star Wars Young Jedi Knights) (Mass Market Paperback)
This book was wonderful. You can't expect everyone to live all of the time. There are always sacrifices, and this book has them. But there is also some great character relationships in the book. Now that Jaina and Jacen are getting older, I'm glad to see their relationships going somewhere with Zekk and Tenel Ka. This book has a great ending to the Diversity Alliance story. (Even if Bornan Thul did die).

5.0 out of 5 stars It Scored!, 25 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Emperor's Plague (Star Wars Young Jedi Knights) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is one of the best books in the series. The only problem is they don't go into enough detail at the end. They should tell more about how Rynar builds his Light Saber. Bornan Thul's death was kind of suprising too. Also, I wish they'ed been a little more clear about Rabba coming back. But other than that, it was a great book. It had a good plot, But could they have cut it any closer?
