    I expected a lotfrom this book The idea, a Jedi turned P.I after escaping the Purges and finding work in the slimey underbelly of Coruscant s lower levels, sounds great a nice treat and reprieve from the same ol same ol Jedis always doing awesome stuff and saving an oblivious galaxy we always get.Not only did the blurb on the back cover deceive me, the cover art did as well It s completely noir influenced What else was I supposed to expect except Raymond Chandler and Star Wars all i I expected a lotfrom this book The idea, a Jedi turned P.I after escaping the Purges and finding work in the slimey underbelly of Coruscant s lower levels, sounds great a nice treat and reprieve from the same ol same ol Jedis always doing awesome stuff and saving an oblivious galaxy we always get.Not only did the blurb on the back cover deceive me, the cover art did as well It s completely noir influenced What else was I supposed to expect except Raymond Chandler and Star Wars all into one Instead, I find out Jax Pavan the P.I protagonist isn t even a P.I Did the editor even read the book He s a bounty hunter The two are completely different things Not only is he a bounty hunter who we never get to see in action , but he s being hunted by every other character mentioned in the book, all of whom have extremely famous over lords, masters, bosses, rivals, cousins, fathers, hairstylists, etcI think you get the picture.The secret of Jax s sudden tantalizing allure is this his Je...

    Even without the Force, you are still a Jedi Don t confuse this book with the other Twilight book In this new edition to the Star Wars Expanded Universe, Jax Pavan, former Jedi Knight, is scumming around in the Coruscant underbelly, trying to keep out of the limelight and Darth Vader s target sites But when his former master, Even Piell, asks him for one last mission, how can he say no I Liked I opened this book with some trepidation The last two Michael Reaves books I read Death Star St Even without the Force, you are still a Jedi Don t confuse this book with the other Twilight book In this new edition to the Star Wars Expanded Universe, Jax Pavan, former Jedi Knight, is scumming around in the Coruscant underbelly, trying to keep out of the limelight and Darth Vader s target sites But when his former master, Even Piell, asks him for one last mission, how can he say no I Liked I opened this book with some trepidation The last two Michael Reaves books I read Death Star Star Wars and Batman Fear Itself didn t impress me In fact, I rated both two stars I was so sure that Reaves had lost his touch, that the magic of Shadow Hunter Star Wars Darth Maul was gone.Boy was I wrong Michael Reaves brings back his amazing characters from Darth Maul, the Medstar Duology andWe get to learnabout I Five and ponder sentience Are droids slavesor are they property Can a droid attain s...

    One of the things that I ve always loved about science fiction as a genre is how adaptable it is lots of people have had a lot of success meshing sci fi with everything from fantasy Star Wars , to westerns Firefly , to horror the Alien trilogy I kept this in mind as I read Coruscant Nights, which not only combines elements of science fiction and fantasy as all SW stories do , but also mixes in equal parts of film noir as well It s set shortly after the imposition of Order 66 and the fil One of the things that I ve always loved about science fiction as a genre is how adaptable it is lots of people have had a lot of success meshing sci fi with everythin...

    There is nothing particularly outstanding about the first novel in the Coruscant Nights series Indeed, if anything, readers might be quite annoyed at the noir angle suggested by the cover design and story summary Hints of a hard boiled Jedi P.I may lead some to suspect a Star Wars Maltese Falcon , but author Michael Reaves never seems interested in turning his tale into any kind of noirish mystery I ll give Reaves the benefit of the doubt and blame this on the marketing department.What he There is nothing particularly outstanding about the first novel in the Coruscant Nights series Indeed, if anything, readers might be quite annoyed at the noir angle suggested by the cover design and story summary Hints of a hard boiled Jedi P.I may lead some to suspect a Star Wars Maltese Falcon , but author Michael Reaves never seems interested in turning his tale into any kind of noirish mystery I ll give Reaves the benefit of the doubt and blame this on the marketing department.What he instead seems intereted in delivering is a surprisingly standard Star Wars adventure, which, in the right hands, can be a lot of fun And fortunately, Reave...
