4.0 out of 5 stars Always in motion the future is., 28 Jun. 2006
This review is from: Betrayal (Star Wars: Legacy of the Force) (Hardcover)
For SW fans of a 'certain age', those of us who were teenagers when the film first burst onto the screen all those years ago, Star Wars: Legacy of the Force is a wonderful way to return to the Skywalker/Solo legend. Luke, Leia, Han, R2 and fussy old C-3PO are not just 'celebrity appearances' here, they are the central characters round whom several tales are being woven.

The main characters are portrayed sympathetically and realistically. We've all grown older since that first opening crawler and this really is like meeting up with old friends.

Luke, now married with children, is no longer the whining brat of

the movies but deeply aware of the responsabilites and dangers that the Force and a galaxy wide government can present.

The old energy between Han and Leia has matured into that feisty 'edge' that only couples who are truly matched can dare risk and there are some comic moments as Han comes to grips with being the father of a lively, teenage jedi daughter.

As with all the best SW literature there are battles, politics, intrigue and mystery as well as the threat of some very dark influences which look as if they are going to present our lifelong heroes with some terrible choices in later volumes.
