Notice: you may note the domain name IS CHANGING. The contents are not. I'm dedicated to maintaining information (lore if you will) and the history of the original Star Wars canon. That said, the old name was a handful to type, spell & remember, especially on mobile, (and more expensive) so update your links to the new one! The old will eventually be going away.

Reviews

There are plenty of sites that do reviews. You can find them on Amazon, Goodreads and Youtube. But so far as I know, none of them are focused on the continuity of the original Star Wars expanded universe. That is my aim, to judge it not only on whether I liked the story but how well did it fit with everything else. While each story may stand alone, there may be callbacks to other stories that you might enjoy reading, or stories following that used a simple throwaway element from that story for a whole new tale! I try and list those so you know where to look.

  • Darksaber

    Darksaber

    Darksaber by Kevin J. Anderson is the follow up to Children of the Jedi and follows multiple threads.

    Patterns of Force, Coruscant Nights 3

    Patterns of Force doesn’t just wrap up the Coruscant Nights trilogy, but several plotlines from previous Michael Reaves’s stories and finishes in a satisfying way. It is a fun adventure, but a bit frustrating because it doesn’t so much explain all it’s own started threads as well. I love the general story I just do … Read more
