The must read of the NJO!!,
This review is from: Dark Tide I: Onslaught (Star Wars - The New Jedi Order) (Paperback)
I thought Star by Star was the best novel in this series, but I was proved wrong when I read this book. Star by Star was the first book I bought in this series, but I wish I had started from the begginging. This book cast a shadow over Vector Prime and out classed Star by Star.
It leads on from Vector Prime perfectly and althought the pace isn't so quick it still is an excellent read. With all the Jedi on seperate missions I find it brilliant that the main Jedi encounter the Vong.
Luke and Jacen encounter the Vong ship yards, where Jacen is caught by the Vong and only the true master Luke can save him. Corran has to travel with a newer character Ganner to save Agamar sudents. This is brilliant as at the begginging of this partnership Ganner and Corran are like lightsabers and reject each other in fierce sences. In the end Corran and Ganner come to a greater understanding and this is an excellent turn of events. With Anakin and Mara on Dantooien Anakin comes to think of the force as a gift that should be used lightley and not as much as he does.
The book also benfits from the return of Rouge Squadron and more intense battles against fierce oppents. Another good thing is that every one ends up at Dantooien and the first test of Vong tactics happens. The reasons that this book is great is because everywhere they think is safe turns out not to be and the senate won't listen to Leia. This book is truley magnificent and a must read. Stackpole is truly the best Starwars novelest ever.
