TEMPEST

spoiler:
Forty years after the Battle of Yavin, a dangerous new era in the Star Wars epic begins with the nine-book series, Legacy of the Force. Here's a first look at book three, Tempest, by Troy Denning.
As civil war threatens the unity of the Galactic Alliance, Han and Leia Solo have infuriated their families and the Jedi by joining the Corellian insurgents. But the Solos draw the line when they discover a rebel plot that hinges upon the murder of a longtime ally and her daughter.

The Solos' selfless determination to prevent this death cannot dispel the inescapable consequences of their actions, which will pit mother against son and brother against sister in the battles ahead. For elsewhere in the galaxy, a once-forgotten menace, Lumiya -- Dark Lady of the Sith -- is tipping the balance of the Force once more towards the darkness...


She's Back BABY...SHIRA BRIE IS BACK!! (Pic is of Queen Mother Tenel Ka (look at arm))

You know deep down its going to be awesome!

From what we've seen so far in not sure why people would think it'll be bad? seems to me to be turning into classic star wars stuff.

I like the covers in this new series. The Dark Nest Covers were unimpressive to say the least

Makes sense. It would explain all the foolishness.

Should perhaps this discussion be split into spoiler and non-spoiler threads? That way those of us to have it or want spoilers can discuss freely and those who don't want to be spoiled (Is Astro the only one around here?) can avoid them. Otherwise, there is are pages of white...

Sounds like a fun book to read. So its going back to things before the Vongs and all the weird sheet, great :3

That Rancor Tooth saber thingy has quite a story, remember how Ka drops her arm (ok, ok it must be a husband-wife thingie :3 )?

Personally I wonder why she is still in Witches grab though.

lolz. Keep your pants on Primeski. I didnt see the volume of traffic signficant enough to warrant that, especially pre-release. Also, another mod will then be obligated to keep an eye on it because it would be out of bounds for me til July-August, and I didnt want to put anyone out

Still, if people think they would really like a non spoiler thread, I will hardly stop you from making one!! lolz.

@Fosh etc, it is possible to create posts that contain spoilers that everyone can read !

eg. It is interesting that there is a focus on Jacen and how
spoiler:
he uses his force powerz to kill people who make entire posts within spoiler tags
. Its not good to see !!

anyway,

heres a Release Day Interview With Aaron Allston No spoilers!!

and here's TFNs Reviews Where they seem to be singing Aalston praises and using big words like apotheosis SPOILER ALERT for the reviews of course

Well Lets go and Ruin the Entire Story then

Lets just say that the storyline is something that Has been hinted at for a while. During the NJO Wedge Created the insiders. lets just say some of the Insiders fight against each other.

Ok, this introduction to the story... Han, Leia and Luke suspect each other of betrayal? Han's "He's in on it. Did you see the bulkhead behind him and his trying to cover up a pilot uniform?" the stupidity of those lines are really grating on me! Am I supposed to believe that the 3 biggest heroes of the Alliance with all drek that they've gone through over the years including in the EU (as this is a EU book) would just start acting aggressive against each other without even talking?

Am I supposed to believe that Han Solo believes Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, long time friend, brother in arms and mentor to his children actually plans to attack and invade Corellia, just because "they want to be independent". And Leia sister to Jedi Master Luke, a Jedi in her own right and a master diplomat... agrees with Han's asessment? Oh please... is this Star Wars Young, or what?! What... is... this?!

I understand the need to get to the point quickly (a civil war bewtween the heroes and it sounds like an interesting storyline) but give it a little more credibility. As it stands now it is Han and luke playing catch and suddenly one of them yells "you cheat" and pulls a blaster and starts shooting the other, dead serious, aiming at his head.

It's a cop out not giving them motives and NO, Luke being worried about the GA and Han about Corellia is not enough reason to pit the 2 greatest heroes of the galaxy against each other.

To me it says "Let's get to the point quick, the audience is too stupid to care of how we got there". This is exactly why I never could get more than, mildly interested, in the EU, because it assumed its audience were morons... and apparently it still does.

It was a cool book. It was interesting near the end with you know who and Jacen. Can't wait til the Hapans/Tenel Ka get involved.

lolz. If you think SW books are meant to be anything more than light reading, you will always be disappointed. EU isnt quantum mech or metaphysics, and isnt meant to be.

Star Wars, in all its forms, is a space fantasy/adventure series. SW lit-EU, whilst hardly perfect, has evolved significantly from its Thrawn/Clones/Superweapons beginnings. I'd liek to throw in that Traitor is am awesome book, by the standards of any genre

If only Stover could have described Anakins torment that well. He tried, but unfortunately was limited by GLs imagination

You mean the NJO one? Gotta agree with you there, that was by far my favorite.

The first two-thirds of Betrayal was a let down for me. The book was far too predictable, especially Jacen's turn to the other side of the force (And I haven't read any Vong-war era books). The ending was a little bit bit better, with a slight twist, but we wouldn't want to overdue that, now would we?

Have you read the excerpt from the next book especially this part?

spoiler:
Now I find I'm thinking of a daughter. Ailyn. Who I haven't seen in fifty years, wondering if she's still alive. You see, I'm ill. Think I'm dying. If I am, there're things I've got to do. One of them is to find out what happened to Ailyn. Another is to decide who's going to be Mandalore when I'm gone. And the third, of course, is to cheat death. I've had a lot of practice at that.

I like how Betrayal basically blew apart the whole "there is not dark side" thing.

The wierd thing is Jacen acts like I always knew that...

No, I'm saying he acts like he always believed there is a dark side. Which, as you point out, isn't the case.

Got my copy yesterday and all i can say is so far its been brilliant these books are looking to be the best thing to ever happen to star wars, they are really really great.

One thing i've got to say im not too keen on so far is all the mentions of the mandos ok it makes sense as boba fett is a major character so he should be talking about them but it seems every other chatacter makes needless referances to them too.
