Tony's Book Reviews

I just finished reading Dark Lord: the Rise of Darth Vader by James Luceno. It's supposed to be the story of what happens to Vader immediately following the events of Revenge of the Sith.

So you'd have thought the book would have introduced Vader somewhere before page 50. Or that at least half the book would have involved him.

No such luck.

Rediculously, most of the book deals with a few Jedi we've never heard of before who somehow managed to escape Order 66. And, of course, one survives past the end of the story (can you say "setup for a future series of novels that will take place between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars, boys and girls?")

Skip this one. Your own imagination is probably much better.
