Legacy Novels
« on: September 4, 2006, 06:29 PM »
Let's discuss the new book series.
I haven't read any yet, but I plan to. This Jacen dark side thing sort of makes the OT useless though. :-\

not really, i think we only haft to take half of what Lumiya says as truth, its quite frankly the return of the sith. Lumiya was always a hothead and i guess she finnally learned to chill out and think up a plot. or so were to believe. but Jacen turning to the dark side seems natural to me,but i really hope he turns out to be Darth Krayt.

Im about 2 books away from finishing NJO, then Im going straight into Dark Nest, and Legacy.

Jacen Solo has become a favorite of mine, I like his darker edge. I'm still not quite sure about some of the rumors that I have heard about Legacy thus far. I have puropsefully stayed away from spoilers, but every now and then one slips past my radar. I beleive he may be Darth Krayt myself, but that remains to be seen. I will comment more on this as I read the series.

Maybe Grievous! Grievous is one of my favorite characters. Maybe a Nemodian or Geonosian cloned him.  ;D

Gotta be Aurra... I'd love it to be her.... small possibility that it could be Asajj... as far as I've read in the comics, she hasn't been confirmed dead.   I don't see N-K in it at all....

Maybe a clone Nute Gunray! Would that be a shocker. Of course he'd probally never want to get mixed up in war again.:P
Long ago....hmmm... HK-47 would be cool too, since he's supposedly still running on Mustafar a little bit after ROTS.

i gotta say i was really psyched about this book,but in the long run (including the exile preview) it leaves a bad taste in your mouth, in the sense that i've kinda lost all hope for the rest of the series topping this first trilogy. and this really felt more like a middle chapter than the conclusion of the first trilogy of this series. there are many upsides here many great battles, way too many near misses, and nobody really important dies(SPOILER: Lumiya has rejoined the ranks of dead unseen bodies), regarding exile i'm extremely underwhelmed by this preview. after the tempest preview in Bloodlines was expecting to be counting the hours before its release as i was with tempest, also read it in one day. aside from the Crowning jacen as a sith lord(Darth Emo, to think i once hoped you where darth krayt!) in the 5th Sacrifice(i guess he's gonna kill someone? could it be his parents whom bought him every werid pet they could find while evading the imps all those years) there isen't really that much shocking and or interesting stuff supposed to happen in exile. Tempest i'm sure with a second sitting will be alot better, especially when i read all three in order after i finish the swarm war (3rd read)

ps, lumiyas mention of other sith kinda seems like a retcon patchjob to link up with the Legacy comics.

another sour note is the mirroring our real depressing world with the starwars universe. hopefully exile is that final of note music before the wicked witch busts outta the floor in the wizard of Oz, a last shining of hope before the Sacrice......
