All I can say Prime is that the author writing it is top notch at characterisation. Matt Stover gave us the awesome Traitor from NJO... if anyone can try and show us whats goin on in Anakins messed up mind, its him... he'll defiinitely do a better job than GLs dialogue, I can guarantee that.

BTW - ROTS novelisation now out ! It is available in standard HB, and e-book format. There are some other new books. Check out the new books thread

Here is a brief ROTS novelisation summary.

I picked up a copy of Dark Lord in AudioBook format (because it was cheaper and because I'm not interested in hardbacks; will wait for softcover) and have a little problem with the time periods.

They go from Order 66 to Imperial Regional Governors and describing Imperial Center (without explaining it used to be Coruscant) and suited Vader in action - in just a few chapters. I get the feeling no more than a day or two passed between Order 66 and the other things and... well, we've all seen Ep 3 and we know a lot more time passed.

So is there anyone out there who can explain.

I just started reading Dark Lord: Rise of Darth Vader. So far, it's a good book. Though I am not so far in the book yet. But, the rest of the book looks promising.

Okay, it's been a while but as anybody heard of the new book Star Wars: Outbound Flight? Looks decent. It's still before the OT too.
