Darksaber by Kevin J. Anderson. That was my most favorite EU book that I have read. I liked the whole book and I thought it was well written. The only thing that I didn't like was that Crix Madine died; :( He was a cool guy in the book and you got to know more about him than just what you saw in ROTJ.

WRAITH SQUADRON

 

well not just the first of the 3.. but all 3.... the author Aaron Aalston puts in great humor.

 

so for me:

 

X-wing book nr. 5 Wraith Squadron

X-wing book nr. 6 Iron Fist

X-wing book nr. 7 Solo Command.

I read XW1 & XW2, but the 3rd one sucked so never got onto the 4th one....

 

I like the ones with Jaina and Jacen. Easy to read a lot in little time and full of adventure. Thrawn Trilogy is great too.

 

Oooh! Ohhh! Rouge Planet rocks alongside of Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter. Read 'em if you haven't. Shadow Hunter is an all out, non-stop, action packed book following a Jedi, a Scoundrel, Darth Maul (duh!), a bounty hunter, and for a couple chapters, a Neimodian traitor. Excellent!

And Rouge Planet is the prequel to the NJO sorta. No real appearance by the Vong, but they are indeed the invaders. Vergere is in it.

 

NJO all together is probably the best. Have only read first two though :D....

SOTE wasn't that bad, it certainly is alot different than most other SW books though. Thats one book where i think i remember quite a few contradictions to the movie....not sure.

Have any of you read the Black Fleet Crisis?

 

I think that this is my favorite Trilogy of Eu excluding Ep IV, V , VI.

It really is a good series and I enjoyed it very much. I like the way that you get to read more about Lando and his adventures and there is a lot of action too. :D

for me, the most fun books were the six Han Solo books. I'm talking about the three that were written by Brian Daley back in the eighties and the new ones that told Han's history. They were fun books that really held the essence of star wars, without getting too Science fiction-ish (star wars is a space fantasy, after all).

I am a chiss fan, so I liked spector of the past and visions of the future alot.

 

The thrawn series was also excellent, not to mention I, Jedi.

 

Gee...the NJO is also excellent. Those are all my favorites, I can't say out of those. It seems anything that passes GL is excellent.

GACK! i banish you from the thread! be GONE!

 

ok im kidding. i suppose we all deserve our own opinions... but since i started the thread im gonna say that i think your opinion is wrong :p maybe its just my odd hatred for lando, i just dont know.

 

it had too much politics, if you ask me the only good thing in that series of books was the gigantic battle near the end. oh and it bothered me how according to that book Padme (only referred to as lukes mom) was force senesitive and left for some mystical clan group thing. it just bothered me.

No, they were never looking for Luke's mom. That girl, whose name i cannot remember, was just using Luke so she could find her people. Padme wasn't part of the White Current or anything.

Yeah, she did, but she was lying. She just wanted Luke to help her get home.
