Well, today while the baby was sleeping I finally finished the third-to-last book in the NJO series! Yay!
And I do mean finally! If you look back, I finished my last book on September 30. That’s almost a month and a half ago! Way too long. But I’ve been hecka busy lately. Even my gaming has gone down to one day a week, for the most part. So sad.
Anyway, Williams and Dix wrapped-up their Force Heretic trilogy nicely here. Two of the sub-plots were pretty much finalised, with the two Alliance groups (i.e. our favourite main characters) completing their missions. The third sub-plot, with Nom Anor, has come to a mighty twist, and now we’ll have to see what happens to him and his quest for vengeance and return to power.
I don’t know what else I can say about this book, other than it is a good end to the trilogy, which itself was a good addition to the New Jedi Order series as a whole. We’ve seen some new characters and the return of old ones; we’ve seen small defeats and major victories; we’ve seen the culmination of ‘years’ of struggles. The book would not make much sense if you haven’t read the others in the trilogy.
So, Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Force Heretic III: Reunion goes back to the bookshelf. As I only have a month and a half before the end of the year, it’s on to the second-to-last book in the NJO series. I need to get ‘er read quickly. In fact, I need to sign off now so I can go start that one!
