A interesting revival of many of the "lesser" (but interesting) characters from many star wars novels. From the cast of the Medstar set to the Shadows of the Empire series. If it were a movie it would have the caption of "with guest appearances by Darth Vader". This made for quite a fun adventure through the Courscant underworld just after the infamous Order 66 was given. ( )

Den and I-Five, from the Med-Star duology show up trying to find Pavan's son[from Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter]. Jax is his name and he is/was a jedi. Takes place after Revenge of the Sith, so the Jedi are being hunted. Jax is a whiner and a loser and I didn't like him at all. I was more interested in Den and I-Five. Also has a big Xizor tie-in[prequel info for Shadows of the Empire].

This book could go either way with fans. Either like it for the tie-in info or dislike it for its complete mediocrity. While I enjoyed the Med-Star duology, I didn't care for this at all. It does, however, show how the remaining Jedi felt after Revenge of the Sith. ( )

When I came across the Coruscant night series I wasn't sure whether I would like it or not. Just by the blurb and reviews I had read I was a bit sceptical. In all honesty, the part of the Star Wars timeline I'm not a huge fan of, mainly because there hasn't been a bulk worth of well known novels that have characterised the era.

I was left however, pleasantly surprised. The characters are interesting and not too 'far fetched', and I particularly liked the introduction of "I-Five" as well as what he adds to the novel. Michael Reaves uses good cross-referencing with some not so well known characters that helps drive the story along too. The problem I had with this book is that it didn't make me want to really get into it at all. I didn't find myself needing to get my book 'fix' as I have from previous novels that I've read. I think perhaps the lack of real excitement made it a bit of a drag but nevertheless, I have started the second novel in the series and I'm starting to get a bit more emotionally involved with the characters.

I would say that this will tickle your fancy if you're a fan of the whole 'lone Jedi surviving' thing, and if you are happy to follow a character relatively unheard of and new. However, if you're looking for a ton of names you've seen pop up in multiple novels etc then maybe look at either the Clone Wars or New Republic era.

This is a very fun book that takes place just a couple of months after Episode III. I found the characters very cool. There is a concern that Jax has regarding his abilities in the Force that is a little confusing. Hopefully, that will resolve itself in the next two chapters. I suppose I could see some people having problems with the sentience of droids, too. I think you could argue that R2D2 and C3PO are every bit as sentient as the droids in this book, though. ( )

I’d heard this was a “hardboiled detective Jedi on Coruscant during the Clone Wars” story, which sounded like an interesting take on the genre, but it spends very little time on that scenario. There is some interesting perspective on the role of droids in society, but it’s mostly about “get the McGuffin while Darth Vader hunts you”.

About three stars worth of story, docked half a star for uneven writing and lack of foreshadowing. (The equipped-with-everything droid with the combat-quality fingertip lasers gets pretty cheesy after a while; if he has an awesome sensor suite, that should be mentioned early on, not just when it solves a plot point.)

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345477502, Mass Market Paperback)

With the dark ascension of the Empire, and the Jedi Knights virtually wiped out, one Jedi who escaped the massacre is slated for a date with destiny–and a confrontation with Darth Vader.

Jax Pavan is one of the few Jedi Knights who miraculously survived the slaughter that followed Palpatine’s ruthless Order 66. Now, deep in Coruscant’s Blackpit Slums, Jax ekes out a living as a private investigator, trying to help people in need while concealing his Jedi identity and staying one step ahead of the killers out for Jedi blood. And they’re not the only ones in search of the elusive Jax. Hard-boiled reporter Den Dhur and his buddy, the highly unorthodox droid I-5YQ, have shocking news to bring Jax–about the father he never knew.
But when Jax learns that his old Jedi Master has been killed, leaving behind the request that Jax finish a mission critical to the resistance, Jax has no choice but to emerge from hiding–and risk detection by Darth Vader–to fulfill his Master’s dying wish.

Don’t miss the continuing adventures in the Coruscant Nights series, coming this Fall!
