I'm currently in the middle of Bloodlines. I wonder how Fett will get an appearance in the future novels.

is it me or does mara Jade look more like Famke Janssen than Shannon Baksa, not that i'm complaining. i think Famke would make a great mara jade, its just kinda werid after we hear ford was offered a starwars spinoff(probably 7,8,& 9) and now we get a book cover with her clearly based after Famke Janssen.

I just finished book three.  I don't want to spoil anything for those who have not read it yet, but I did enjoy it.

The series is great so far.

I'm really looking forward to read this series. I have book 2 and 3 BUT i haven't been able to find a paperback version of betrayal. Is it only out in hardcover? and if so does anyone know when a paperback copy will be released ? :-\

Yes, it's only out in Hardcover. It usually takes 10 - 12 monthsd fro a hardcover to be made into paperback.

FYI the fourth novel, Exile, is scheduled for release on Tuesday. I got a copy Thursday at Wal-Mart for cheap. Finished it last night. Not bad.

I finished Exile last night.  Another excellent book.  It will be very interesting to see where the story goes from here.

{spoilers}

personally i must say i feel that Ben went into his Sith test a total novice and came out a JEDI!

for me that was just great. having hated Ben since dark nest, this was a real treat after having to read about Luke skywalkers blithering idiot son for like three books.

I've stated many times that i was not excited about Exile in the least bit. but finding it four days early really made me enjoy it all the more, another great thing to me was the way that unlike Tempest it jump started the story and actually went somewhere.

but when it comes to future editions in this series i don't wanna even try and figure out where its going. because quite frankly its gone everywhere I've not expected so far, and I'm generally pleased with that sort of thing making a return to the Starwars mythos.

I finished Sacrifice the other day.  Very good book, although rough ending.

I read Sacrifice today and it was a really good read. The death in the book was really well handled and sad. It was also nice to see Ben becoming more of a man and less of a whiny little kid ( it's reminiscent of Luke's Journey throughout the OT). My only crticism of the books as a series is tha there is almost too much going on. I feel like all that stuff about Fett could be it's own separate book. In the future it would be nice to see the focus be on maybe 4-5 characters as opposed to what feels like 7-12 (Like Tatooine Ghost which just focused on Han and Leia.)

Has anyone read Inferno yet? What did you think?

I read Fury in two days.  Great book aith lots of action.  Alston also did a great job with Ben halping Luke still dealing with his grief over losing Mara as well as the Jag and Jaina storyline.  I have a feeling that they will be a couple again by the end of the series.
