From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back Review!

ANOTHER forty stories set during The Empire Strikes Back giving us new people and circumstances to enjoy! I mean, c’mon. You already know I’m here for this. My excitement and over eagerness are probably as apparent as Admiral Ozzel coming out of hyperspace too close to the sixth planet of the Hoth system. It’s a… Continue reading From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back Review!

Star Wars: Moving Target Review!

The last book I read in the Journey to the Force Awakens “character trilogy” (the unofficial name I made up) is Moving Target. A Leia adventure involving a small group mission with a cool cast of characters that I enjoyed quite a bit.

Star Wars: The Weapon of a Jedi Review!

The second book in my personal Journey to The Force Awakens is The Weapon of a Jedi. Luke Skywalker takes a detour to Devaron and searches for knowledge that will help him along the Jedi path. A cool new enemy and some Imperial entanglements combined with some familiar droids make for a fun little adventure. SPOILERS   This… Continue reading Star Wars: The Weapon of a Jedi Review!
