Exceeded my expectations 6. Dezember 2013
Von Pseud0Zombie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I will admit to being one of those annoying readers who prefers to hear about the exploits of Sith and Jedi, or at least somewhat Force-Sensitive characters. So even though I have read previous Drew Karpyshyn novels, I was a tad bit hesitant about pre-ordering this book--after all, I'm still relatively new to the Star Wars universe, so it would have been a simple matter to make a note of this one for later and pursue a different novel while I waited for mass-market paperbacks to hit the shelves.

Boy, am I glad I didn't. This book is outstanding.

I found the characters to be believable, relatable, and enjoyable to read about. They have real problems, regrets, expectations, and (dramatic gasp), flaws! They make mistakes--sometimes very big ones--and they kick themselves for it later. One icident that stuck out in my mine was when Theron sustained a shoulder injury early on that ended up troubling him later. This may not seem like much, but its one of the things that makes Karpyshyn a great author: he understands that people can't shake off injuries just like that, and that his characters won't have unlimited stamina.

I was glad to have read The Lost Suns graphic novel just a few weeks prior to this. Without it, though, you won't be lost-- Karpyshyn understands his audience, and that the Star Wars universe really is vast: every reader may not necessarily be up to speed on the latest events. Karpyshyn manages to catch the reader up without delving into tedious summarizations or (shudder) convenient flash-backs.

This book was definitely worth dropping the extra couple of dollars to pre-order it. I highly recommend it.

An Incredibly Fun Book 19. Juli 2014
Von Albert Nguyen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Theron Shan: son of Jedi Grandmaster Satele Shan, descendent of the famous Jedi-turned-Sith-turned-back-to-Jedi Revan and Bastila Shan, and (wait for it) NOT Force sensitive. That’s right, despite his rich lineage in the Jedi Order the hero of Annihilation lacks any ability to use the Force. On top of it all, his mother has effectively disavowed him as the secret of his parentage would be the biggest scandal this side of the Hydian way. Not surprisingly, Theron, accustomed to secrecy, chooses a career in Republic intelligence and when the Sith acquire a new weapon capable of decimating starfleets, the Republic assigns him to take it down.

The plot of the novel is fairly standard: the Sith Empire has a superweapon and our heroes attempt to stop it, nothing that hasn’t already been done. Despite this, the strongest part of Annihilation would be its characters - Theron’s backstory alone is enough to pique interest. A common element in Star Wars is the hereditary nature Force-sensitivity causing characters related to some great Jedi (e.g Luke) to be locked-in to be great Jedi themselves. In contrast, Theron has found his own path fighting battles of information rather than of lightsabers. What’s more, Theron often comes off as cynical towards the Jedi believing them to be somewhat overrated but never to the point of disrespect which I found quite refreshing. Add to that his tendency to disregard orders and he makes for a very fun character to read.

Other characters include Teff’ith the smuggler who reluctantly found her way into Theron’s team and Gnost-Dural, a Jedi Master who must come to terms with the fact that his fallen Padawan is the very enemy the three of them must face (and, incidentally, he’s the guy who voices the galactic timeline record videos). This slew of colorful characters made for a very entertaining character dynamic reminiscent of Luke’s first trip aboard the Millennium Falcon and allowed for great dialogue between them.

To fully enjoy this novel one has to come in with the right expectations. Don’t go in expecting a deep story, compelling narrative, or philosophical views of the nature of the Force. Instead, expect a fun story full of action, suspense, and humor. I would also recommend being familiar with some parts of The Old Republic video game as the book does make references to characters and events in the game, but the book can still be enjoyed without that knowledge.

My new favorite EU character 15. Mai 2014
Von Nic Knight - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I loved the Darth Bane series and I think Drew Karpyshyn outdid himself with this book. The story is engaging and Theron is easily one of my favorite characters in the EU. I love how he's so fiercely loyal to the Republic, and also to his friends and family. It could only have been difficult to grow up knowing your mother is the Grand Master of the Jedi Order... knowing that she chose the Republic and the galaxy over you. It's no wonder Theron has issues. And when he finds out who his father is...

***SPOILER***

...well I think Teff'ith summed it up quite nicely toward the end of the story when she says "Grand Master mom and Supreme Commander dad. No wonder Theron's so messed up."

Theron is a great character. He thinks and reacts on his feet and he's at his best when he doesn't have many rules to play by. Master Gnost-Dural complements him nicely. Gnost-Dural is disciplined but also has humor and knows when to throw the rule book out the window and go with the flow as well. I thought him and Theron made a great team.

I was a little disappointed the Teff'ith didn't play more of a role in the main action, but she served her part. I was a little put off by her speaking of herself as "we" but it was pretty easy to overlook.

I wanted to give this five stars but had to dock points because there was a whole other story that we didn't get to see. The mission that cost Theron's guardian, Master Ngani Zho, his life and when Theron met Teff'ith, and also managed to take down a member of the Dark Council. I felt like I missed a book in there, but as far as I know, this is the first book about Theron Shan. So the backstory was a little bit frustrating, I wanted to know what happened to bring about these particular events.

In the end, Theron Shan has been added to my list of favorite EU characters and if there is another book starring him, I will pick it up in an instant.

007 with Jedi backup 21. November 2013
Von steven - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I put off reading this book for no other reason than not wanting to be disapointed. The last few SW's books I've read where terrible. I've read all but a handful of SW books. Some good, some not so good. TOR is wide open with the potential of some good books with new characters. This author knows how to write SW's so I don't know why I was putting off reading this book. This was a page turner I finished in 3 days. Reads like this keep me interested in the SW universe!
Mr Karpyshyn does it again 28. Februar 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love everything this man writes. And once again he did not disappoint. I play SW-TOR and I can envision this storyline going on around my characters in game.

Even if you don't play, if you love Star Wars, you will love this book!
