Fate of the Jedi
« on: March 13, 2009, 04:49 PM »
The next chapter of EU is about to begin.  Looks like there will be a serious Anti-Jedi backlash after the fall of Darth Caedus.

Book 1 due out 24 March

Book 2 due out 23 June

Book 3 due out 25 August

I'm looking forward to reading these since the Legacy of the Force series ended so quickly.
This is the way.

I can't wait either. I didn't reaalize this series was starting so soon. I thought it was May. Guess I got my "M" months mixed up.

Hmmmn...no paperback editions and I only buy paperback now.    ???  Looks like I'll be about 6-12 months behind all of the other EU fans (as usual).

I finished Outcast today.  Pretty good story so far, I'm looking forward to the next two books.

I finished it yesterday and I disagree. Other than what's happening with Luke I think the rest of it is not setting up for much of a series. Certainly not after the Vong and then Caedus.

I'm excited to pick up Omen after work. The cover has intrigued me. And you know what they say about judging a book by it's cover. "Always do because it doesn't matter what's on the inside". Or maybe the saying goes differently......  ;)

My wife picked it up for me today.  I now have something to do in line tomorrow in anticipation for Transformers in IMAX.

I've read about half the 236 page "Omen" book and really wondering where the justification of this being a $25 hardcover is coming from.

Less than 30 pages left in the book and I can only assume these last handful of pages are going to be the most enthralling and action packed SW book pages ever for me to have paid the B&N hardcover price.

Just Finished Omen. Now I'm waiting for them to send me my $18 check since the book should have only been a $8 paperback.

This was the worst/uncalled for hardcover SW book I've ever read.

It was short, but I like where the story is going so far.  I like the tie in to KOTOR with the stranded tribe of ancient Sith on Kesh.

Just an FYI. The "Abyss" book is coming out on Aug. 18th now for anyone who cares and wanted to know it's a week ahead of the original post.
