The second half of the book follows Boba as he leaves Geonosis, having to come to terms with his father's death. Heading to the moons of Bogden in order to locate Count Dooku, Boba finds himself betrayed, backstabbed and deceived by his "friends", and he even has his ship stolen. It's easy to see why Fett is going to become such a ruthless loner when he's older.
The book ends nicely, with Fett in the uncertain ward of Count Dooku, from whom he must learn self-sufficiency. The book contains a few nice cameos for Star Wars veterans, including Siri Tachi and Aurra Sing, who will become a key player in the next few books.
Although the writing style is a bit basic, and the first half of the book is a little dull, the "original" scenes are fun and fast paced, and very much remeniscant of the "Jedi Apprentice" series. Reccommended for Fett fans.
Set around the episode I era, the lessons Boba learns are hard but shows what started him on his life of being "alone"!
I really did enjoy reading this book and thought it was a great introduction into the "Boba Fett - Clone wars" series.
Reading this particular books has persuaded me to carry on with the rest of this series.
If you are a Star wars fan, you will enjoy it. If you are a Boba fett fan, you will love it!
Either way, it is a great book to add to your "Star Wars" Collection.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The story speaks of relationships and the circle of life. You can relate to Boba Fett as you read about his relationship with his father, Jango Fett. It reminds you of young Anakin Skywalker who has a mother but no father. You get the opposite where Boba has a father and wished he had a mother. But it draws more from that. Witness Boba grow from an innocent wishful boy into the fearsome bounty hunter he becomes. It was very saddening to read about how Boba took the death of Zam Wesell, the sea-mice, and eventually his own father. Even the scene with Boba's only friend, Whrr touched me.
Boba is not the brutal killer as you think he is. This is a man who goes through many life experiences and valuable lessons. This is what made him stand out among the bounty hunters. Read this book!
