Being the final chapter in this particular story arc, we were inevitably going to see the final confrontation between the main characters and their arch nemesis. We were also inevitably going to find out the truth about Hoole. What we shouldn't have had was the first few pages making it so obvious what was going to happen. I know this is a book for the younger readers and it is hard to contain so much within so few pages but a bit more subtlety would have been nice.
Forgetting that minor gripe, I again enjoyed this book and it was a brilliant and exciting end to what has been a fantastic series. We, of course, get the standard cameo appearance from well known characters and the story itself is exciting. There are so many aspects of the story that make it feel like it could have been written after the prequels, not in 1998. Well worth reading it to see what I mean.
All of the books so far have been consistently good and equally enjoyable in my opinion. I shall therefore maintain my consistent and predictable rating by giving it 4 stars. I'm now looking forward to searching for the next 6 books.
Their adventures lead Tash, Zak, Hoole and DV-9 to Keva to seek out the remains of the evil scientist Borborygmus Gog's experiments. However, the Rebel Alliance and the Empire wish to gain control of Gog's secret weapon too.
Well, this book features our old friends Han, Luke, Leia, Chewie and the Droids and has them facing off against Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers. I also loved the bit in which Vader turns the power of the dark side against Eppon, the first of Gog's superwarriors. Which brings me onto this book's other good point, which is the way that it reveals that the experiments of the previous books were merely test cases for elements of Gog's masterpiece. We also discover the secret history between Hoole and Gog.
The story in general is pretty unimaginative and boring. Aside from the few scenes mentioned above, it's hardly worth reading.
