I really liked this book and am looking forward to reading the next one in the series I thought the writing was good and the storyline is really interesting I would definitely recommend this book to any Star Wars FanThe only thing I noticed that was funny was the author focuses a LOT on Admiral Daala s hair Every scene with her something is mentioned about her hair I just found that a little odd but funny Anyone else notice thatOverall this is a good book It was on age 15 of this book that I realized that this simply would not be a book I enjoyed reading During the Tempting a Texan (The Texas Series, previous year of violent strife Luke had been whisked away to the resurrected Emperor s stronghold in the galactic core and there he had allowed himself to learn the dark side He had become the Emperor s chief lieutenant just like his father Darth VaderYou see I really enjoyed the Star Wars movies of my childhood and also really enjoyed Timothy Zahn s Trilogy of books that began with Heir to the Empire I wanted an expansion of that Universe and I thought Zahn delivered because he crafted a trilogy of books that was true to the movies and true to the characters What I did not want was a series of books that took the characters in a direction I did not wish to see them go and Luke joining a resurrected Emperor was just to hokey for meI kept reading for awhile but eventually had tout this book down and made the realization that The Jedi Academy Trilogy would simply not be me When it comes to further reading in the Star Wars expanded Universe I believe I ll read the rest of Zahn s output and call it a day The Good An old school entry in the Star Wars Expanded Universe this novel brings the action and heroism you ve come to expect from the franchise Kevin J Anderson s writing is fabulous and the story really took me to a galaxy far far away Though the ending wasn t a cliffhanger I can t wait to see where the trilogy goes from hereThe Bad Minor complaints one or two Organizational Behavior and Virtual Work profanities too much advertising in the back etc All smallotatoes when you consider how good this book wasConclusion I was officially introduced to the Expanded Universe when I bought I Jedi by Michael A Stackpole at a local garage sale Not only did it inspire me to read Star Wars novels it rejuvenated my love for reading which I had lost years ago to television movies and video games Though I ve read the entire Jedi Academy trilogy at least twice before I felt it deserved at least one goand I m glad I gave it one There really isn t much I can say about this other than the fact that I am simultaneously amused and appalled that my twelve year old self liked this book so much In fairness it s not that Anderson is a bad writer though his characterisation makes me want to smack him freuently it s just that I could only contain my laughter up to the time he describes one of the characters looking out at the city of Coruscant bathed in starlight You know Coruscant The Conflict and Reconciliation planet the entire surface of which is covered in buildings And that was about tenages in As is the case with any genre of writing there are some authors who can really get it done for their readers and some who can t The whole time I was reading Timothy Zahn s excellent Thrawn Trilogy I kept finding myself being Light As A Feather, Cold As A Marble (Weeping Willow pleasantly surprised at how much I was enjo Kevin J Anderson is given the chance to contribute to one of the biggest and most beloved science fiction universes ever created and he comes up with blob races A significantortion of the book is dedicated to blobs Racing More impressively the entire blob subplot ends up amounting to nothing than Lando Calrissian on vacation The entire section could be removed without affecting the The Life And Times Of Rosie The Riveter plot of the novel This isrobably the worst of several uninspired decisions made in this bookDespite this several important characters are introduced in this novel along with the Maw Installation the most interesting Sex Powers University 2 plotline of the story Hopefully this is only aoor introduction and the rest of the trilogy will be entertaining This was the first Star Wars expanded universe book I ever read and as mediocre as it is it s Deadly Seduction primarily responsible for my obsession with Star Wars and the EU throughout my last two years of high school Simply by existing it was awesome back then There was MORE STORY after the movies More OFFICIAL STORY Now though I have higher standards It was fun to revisit this book that I liked when I was sixteen again mostly because it existed but nostalgia was really the only reason I had any fun reading it this second time around Jedi Search is the first book by Kevin J Andersonrofessional fanfic writer in his Jedi Academy trilogy which Randy Comfort Rise Again picks up after Timothy Zahn s much much much much better Thrawn trilogy Ostensibly it s about Luke taking charge and forming a new Jedi Academy recruiting and searching for new Jedi across the galaxy to come to his new school and reboot the Jedi order Of course the situation is also complicated by theresence of the obligatory frustrated Remnant of the Defeated Empire character who is much better served in the Thrawn trilogy than here Here we ve got Admiral Daala a Meet The Vampire prodigy who s been seuestered in a top secret black hole cluster for ten years doing research for the Empire and she and her installation have no idea what s been going on in the outside world Then there s a thirdlot with Han and Chewie and Kessel that seems designed solely to bring in a key character but it ends up feeling shoehorned in and coincidental Cool that we finally get to visit Kessel though Meanwhile all this is happening Leia is busy having a mental breakdown about Han and her children all the while stuff seems to be falling apartMy main frustration with KJA as a wr. As the war between the Republic and the scattered remnants of the Empire continues two children the Jedi twins will come into their owers in a universe on the brink of vast changes and challenges In this time of turmoil and discovery an extraordinary new Star Wars saga begins While Luke Skywalker takes the first .
Iter is that he s all ideas no execution He had all the bones of a fun Star Wars story here but the way he writes it just ruins the whole thing His dialogue is cheesy and not lifelike at all his character work is disgraceful and most of the time character actions occur because something needs to happen in the lot rather than because it s something that character would organically do Many of the developments are insulting to me as a human Iktomi and the Berries person as a Star Wars fan and as a woman most of these insults occur in the second two books He also wastes SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES in his stories and the way he develops his initially cool story falls flat and yes turns stupid This book is the best of the series solely because all of thatotential is still there but by books two and three it s Better Policing with Microsoft Office 2007 piddled off like a baduppy on your favorite rugBut even by the end of this book you can see the Escaflowne (Escaflowne Newtype 100% Collection, 40) potential dying Let s break it down by the fourlot Wild Pork and Watercress points I mentioned aboveThe supposed Jedi search This book is supposed to feature Luke and Co searching for Jedi but there is basically none of that actually happening Lando is wasted on the stupidestlot of all time finding himself searching for a Shorty potential Jedi while attending Umgullian blob races Yes blob races And the guy doesn t even turn out to be a Jedi At least thirtyages full of a complete waste of time Luke only finds three himself And he doesn t even have to work very hard to do it It s not satisfying on a story level at all Not to mention it s apparent while reading these scenes that KJA has no idea how to write Luke as a competent Jedi Master His Luke can t even figure out how to sense life signs or take a uick walk across lava It s horribly frustrating But bottom line the book is called Jedi Search and approximately only 15% is spent doing that But thanks for misleading me I guessAdmiral Daala and the Empire Admiral Daala could have been such a good character A woman admiral in a notoriously sexist institution like the Empire that could have been good A leader who has been out of the loop for ten years and the universe has moved on without her could have been good A sudden influx of Imperial troops and Articles on Works by C. S. Lewis, Including power revives the efforts of the dying Empire could have been good But none of it was Daala s characterization was almost exclusively focused on her obsession with Grand Moff Tarkin who was her mentor and as she notes almost every time she remembers him her lover as well Which is icky in the book and icky on theart of the author Also for a supposed military genius Daala is a moron She is not good at her job Lastly the idea of Maw Installation being hidden in the black hole cluster is good if you don t think about it but doesn t hold up even remotely if you do The time dilation from being near one black hole let alone a cluster of them would make every event in this book impossible Lazy science is lazyHanChewieKessel The Kessel stuff surprisingly delivers We get Han and Chewie being captured by an old frenemy and forced to become slaves in the spice mines of Kessel and upon escaping are forced into an even terrifying situation in the black hole cluster It s terrifying and there be monsters down there But it also seems like this entire story was developed solely so Han could meet Kyp Durron and bring him into the fold It is HIGHLY coincidental that Han should meet one of the few Force sensitive beings left in the universe just in time to bring him in to Luke s Jedi Academy I suppose you could hand wave that away by saying the Force works in mysterious ways but Anderson doesn t even bother to do that Lazy The bad guy at Kessel is gross and not in a fun way either Like raping women and eating his own children gross BlurgLeia and the Jedi twins As for Leia she gets the worst from KJA He doesn t get her At all KJA s Leia is a nagging worrywart whose achievements as a statesman are completely undercut by her unreasonable anger at Han for not being there when their twins return from their two year exile This is dumb for two reasons 1 KJA s insistence that Jedi children be isolated for the first two years of their lives is BULLSHIT He Interracial Romance BWWM pulled it out of his bum for dramaticurposes It makes zero sense in the Star Wars universe And 2 Leia would NOT be mad at Han for not being there and she wouldn t be making comments all the time about him being unreliable and off to sow his wild oats Those shouldn t even be issues in their marriage Leia trusts Han Han is dependable Her first assumption should have been that something was wrong and to go looking for him but KJA needed her in Coruscant not off on a rescue mission so instead she acts like a moron The stuff where she deals with all the diplomatic stuff was harmless but not exactly thrilling It s mostly set up for the next two booksThis first book was okay but the second two devolve considerably and aren t worth your time Seriously don t bother reading this series unless you are a EU completist If you re reading it for nostalgia Gaddafis Harem purposes you ll just be disappointed There are so many other books so many other Star Wars books specifically that you would do better to spend your time onFirst read January 2001 FIRST THOUGHTS 35 stars While JEDI SEARCH and I had a rocky start due mostly to the abrupt character POV switches and meersonally not being used to reading sci fi it mellowed out into an excellent story in the end I loved being reunited with some of my favorite Puff people in the Star Wars universe and getting to witness their adventures after everything that s happened in the films I think of all the stories I was most interested in Han s individual arc but it all works together to bring it to a solid ending Pretty good series starter Step toward setting up an academy to train a new order of Jedi Knights Han Solo and Chewbacca are takenrisoner on the lanet Kessel and forced to work in the fathomless depths of a spice mine But when Hans and Chewie break away they flee desperately to a secret imperial research laboratory surrounded by a cluster

Nd I m looking forward to reading the rest Han and Chewie are out to Kessell to win its support for the New Republic after the events of Dark Empire I Star Wars I haven t actually read that comic but I ve heard a lot about it Unfortunately Moruth Doole has no intentions of joining and sends Han and Chewie into the spice mines where they meet the Force sensitive Kyp Durron Meanwhile Leia holds things together on Coruscant worrying for her husband and Luke begins his Jedi Search finding two candidates Gantoris and StreenI LikedKevin J Anderson is often castigated for his Star Wars entries but I honestly don t see why No his books aren t like Zahn s but they are still Star Wars Unlike my experience with Star Wars The Truce at Bakura v 4 I felt Anderson really got the feel of Star Wars down The settings feel right the characters are retty good and the events as wellWhile the mission is kinda goofy it is interesting to see Kessell and its Leyendas Negras place in the universe Also I enjoyed seeing Luke go out to find new Jedi candidates It s really cool to see the rise of the new Jedi especially with the knowledge of thereuels something I didn t have when I read the book many years ago And I can sorta stretch my imagination to believe that a Maw Installation would have been created for the super secret construction that occursThe main characters are done well enough that I don t uestion them Han and Chewie The Iron Palace (Shadowed Path, play a large role and they are done well Luke is likewise well done As for minor characters Kyp Durron is really interesting I can see how he is almost a LukeHan clone It s neatarticularly knowing where he ends up in the New Jedi Order Admiral Daala is also interestingI Didn t LikeI am not sure why Kessell is such a big deal It almost seems like a Bad, Bad Bluebloods (Rich Boys of Burberry Prep place that the New Republic would want to break down like a drug lab instead of ally with And the sleazy alien who runs itand the scarecrow not a big Batman fan but all I could think of was Crane Uh huh let s ally with seedy characters Really gives the New Republic legitimacy ehThe Maw Installation was interesting but I still have no idea WHY they had to keep so uiet for so long Weren t they wondering after a year or two why Tarkin hadn t called Would it have been so hard toeek out and transmit a Hey what s up And the Maw Installation being so secretive that even Palpatine didn t know Ha got me laughing in stitches over that oneLeia doesn t do much of anything other than wangst at home about Han being gone She vacillates between worry and being mad that he is off gambling Then she is shy about asking Lando and Luke to look into it Out Of Character Leia from the trilogy or from the Thrawn Trilogy would have no In the Cavern of the Night problem with it In fact she drobably be leading the expedition Since her kids are dumped off with Winter on the hidden the bad boys of butte planet and she can conveniently leave her job when thelot reuires itLuke Skywalker is too Romancing the Customer powerful There is a difference between a Jedi who can hold his own and a Jedi that can do everything Look at Yoda The guy walked around with a cane or on a hoverchair He wasn terfect He didn t smash everyone to bits But if Luke were him he would be using the Force to walk upside down or something crazyAnd then his complete ignorance of Gantoris Dark Side For someone as The Articles of Release (The Release powerful as Luke he should be like Uh warning Warning But no that would get rid of the story before it had even begunui Xux is the Worst Character Ever I despise her I can t believe she exists She is too stupid to live Every single myth about scientists or doctors oreople with intelligence is exploited in her She is gorgeous but also naive beyond belief The Death Star was a mining tool Uh take a look at the name girlfriend That should be a clue The World Devastators a roving mining colony Girl you need to get out I hadn t really liked her the first time I read and time has definitely NOT made me sympathetic to her Lock her up and throw away the keyStereotypes like sleazy Twi Leks that are only involved in crime crop up That really torues meLando s mission with the blob races is completely irrelevant and tossed in to make sure all the big guys from the movie appear YawnAs for the audiobook large chunks of Daala s history disappear such as her affair with Tarkin and Leia s contribution disappear I believe there were The Sleepwalkers parts with her on Coruscant besides whining about Han Also the readerronounces words incorrectly Bes Idle Ideas in 1905 pin not Bee spin and Cor u sant not Cor u skant It was grating after a whileDialogSexual SituationsViolenceA few stray d and hui Xux is goregous Of CourseHan Chewie and Kyp fight their way out of the spice mines of Kessell Theeople of Eol Sha have to be moved because their Haunted Marion, Ohio planet is destroying itselfOverallI know I complained a lot but the story actually isn t too bad It s a nice Star Wars romp I liked Han and Chewie in the spice mines well not being there but their adventure there and Luke s Jedi Search wasretty darn cool No it s not brilliant but it was enjoyable Read it if you are bored or have to complete the whole series Painful Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, painfulainful I was smack in the middle of a revival of my love of Star Wars thanks to Timothy Zahn s Thrawn Trilogy I wanted had to have it so I uickly snapped up these from my local bookseller The smile on my face soon faded as I waded through the first book None of the characters sounded like I imagined themthey said things they wouldn t say did things that I KNEW they wouldn t do The worst offenses were against characters that Zahn had createdKJA s interpretation of Senator Bel Iblis was horrid and Mara Jade with Lando Lame The added subplots were well lame Lame is Oracle APEX 18.1 For Beginners: A platform to rapidly develop data-centric web applications accessible from a multitude of devices probably the best word to describe every original though KJA tried to shoehorn F black holes and go from one danger to a far greater one On Kessel Lukeicks up the trail of his two friends only to come face to face with a weapon so awesome it can wipe out an entire solar system It is a death ship called the Sun Crusher invented by a reclusive genius and iloted by none other than Han himsel.
