Returning once more to the realm of Star Wars, Bellarius takes a brief look at one last hurrah by the Expanded Universe before it was bulldozed away by the same director who dumbed down Star Trek to an action film franchise.

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
