Star Wars: Dark Force Rising (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy #2)

SO!! In between all the Star Trek books I was able to worm a Star Wars novel into the time line. Thank God I did! As much as I love Trek and some of the novels are great, sadly there are So many that are just… Just a pile of crap. But I love the Challenge and will see it to the end. But we’re here to talk about the Star Wars: Dark Force Rising (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy #2) by . Now this is…

SO!! In between all the Star Trek books I was able to worm a Star Wars novel into the time line. Thank God I did! As much as I love Trek and some of the novels are great, sadly there are So many that are just… Just a pile of crap. But I love the Challenge and will see it to the end. But we’re here to talk about the Star Wars: Dark Force Rising (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy #2) by . Now this is the second book in the Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy (Heir to the Empire (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, #1)Dark Force Rising (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, #2) The Last Command (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, #3))  So if you haven’t read any of the Trilogy yet, leave now….

216442The dying Empire’s most cunning and ruthless warlord–Grand Admiral Thrawn–has taken command of the remnants of the Imperial fleet and launched a massive campaign aimed at the New Republic’s destruction. Meanwhile, Han and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republican Council–only to discover instead a ghostly fleet of warships that could bring doom to their friends and victory to their enemies.

Yet most dangerous of all is a new Dark Jedi, risen from the ashes of a shrouded past, consumed by bitterness…and scheming to corrupt Luke Skywalker to the Dark Side.

The over all story is good and picks up right where the first novel leaves off. The characters are are well balanced and Zahn as a good handle on the history. Not as much action in the novel unlike the first one. It’s more political if anything else. But what there was, it was well done and the humor was great! Zahn introduced some new characters that came off a little flat to me. If they died, I wouldn’t care to much. I wish his did more with C’Boath, that was rather lackluster between  him and Luke. But then that’s just me.. But over all I loved the book and happy I read something different hahaha. I need to get back into the Star Wars expanded universe, I haven’t read them in years. Hmmm could this be my next book challenge, once I’m finished my Star Trek? After a break of course hahaha. What do you guys think?Star-Wars-Book Challenge_Silver

Star Wars Anthology: Boba Fett

Logline: Unknown
Release: 2020 (reportedly)

Director Josh Trank may have exited the second of the so-called Star Wars anthology films (or he was forced out), but that doesn’t appear to have caused Lucasfilm to pump the brakes at all. Today brings news that the film will tell the origin story of fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett.

According to The Wrap, their sources tell them that the plot does indeed revolve around the notorious villain, supporting one of the rumors that has been making the rounds for months. Since almost the moment these standalone movies were announced, Boba Fett has been one of names most mentioned in conjunction to them. Some thought it was just wishful thinking, but if this does in fact turn out to be true, and we’re talking about Star Wars, so who knows, this news will make a lot of people happy.
