I have really enjoyed this series so far, especially the story with Luke and Ben. I have read the Lost Tribe of the Sith e-books too and it helped me enjoy Omen more. I do think that this being a harcover series is a bummer because I collect all the books in paperback. I have to check the books out of the library and then wait for them to come out in paperback later. Which I obviously have to do every once in a while with other SW books but a whole series. . .come on that just sucks.
I did meet Aaron Allston at SDCC just barely and he was really cool and nice. Can't wait to read Abyss here soon.
