Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, shares his thoughts on Honor Among Thieves, the latest entry in the Empire And Rebellion multi-authored Star Wars series, published by Lucas Books. This book is written by James SA Corey (the penname of Daniel Abraham & Ty Frank), author of the Expanse series.

“James SA Corey produces an excellent Star Wars book that is one of the best that the franchise has ever given us. As well as being a treat for fans of both Corey and Star Wars, it’s also something that readers who are only familiar with the films can jump on board as well with little difficulty. Highly Recommended.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Shadowhawk takes a look at the latest Star Wars novel, featuring one of the great villains of the setting, Darth Maul.

“A novel with an interesting premise but brought down due to lackluster characterisation and general silliness. This could have been great but is instead mediocre at best.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Star Wars: Maul – Lockdown by Joe Schreiber – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

maul-lockdown

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, covers Joe Schreiber’s Maul, the latest Star Wars tie-in novel focusing on the fan-favourite Sith character, Darth Maul – published by Del Ray Books and set before the events of the first Star Wars movie from the prequel trilogy, The Phantom Menace.

“A flawed but fun Star Wars novel, Joe Schreiber proves that he isn’t a one-trick pony and doesn’t have to rely on Zombie Stomtroopers to make Lockdown an entertaining read – but just don’t go in expecting a perfect one as the end result is quickly forgettable and not as excellent as it could have been.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Star Wars: Kenobi by John Jackson Miller – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

Star Wars - Kenobi

Shadowhawk takes a look at John Jackson Miller’s latest Star Wars novel, set after the events of Ep III: Revenge of the Sith.

“If you’ve ever wondered what Obi-wan was doing on Tatooine between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, then this is the novel for you. With a western-style spin on things, this is the story of the man who was forced to kill a friend, who bears the guilt for everything that happened, and the man who wants to leave his troubled past behind. An awesome novel from start to finish.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

After a month-and-a-half long break, Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for December, and the penultimate one for the year.

“For a change, this was a fairly good crop of stories, whether it is the always amazing Paul Dini’s Zatanna or the other supernatural of DCU with Dan DiDio’s Phantom Stranger, which turned out to be fairly decent, especially once J. M. DeMatteis stepped in for scripting duties. ” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

“Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files delivers a solid standalone graphic novel, whilst Brian Wood impresses with Mara. Over at Zenescope, Robyn Hood: Wanted is entertaining and fun whilst Corinna Beckho impresses with the first volume of the second Star Wars: Legacy series, set 138 years after the events of Star Wars: A New Hope.” ” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
