I am not positive how I feel about Outcast. I am not sure if I liked Aaron Allston's writing style. I know there was a lot that needed setting up for the Fate of the Jedi series, and he got the job done which, to me, shows extreme talent.

There is plenty of action, and while I enjoyed the portions of the book dealing with Luke and Ben, and Han and Leia best, some of the other story lines were nearly as equally as intriguing. Nearly.

However, I am anxious to begin Omen, the next in the series.

Not bad

I like that we got to see more of Jaina, Jag, and Tahiti As well as Luke and Ben and the Solos and Allana. The consequences of Jacen's fall are interesting, logical, and not abandoned.

I really enjoyed this book for several reasons. There was still a sense of urgency and foreboding as is normal of the Star Wars universe, but it was also light-hearted. It was also nice to see the whole anti-Jedi feelings that had been hanging around for quite a long time finally coming to fruitation and causing long term issues for the Jedi.

Then there was the chance to see Luke and Ben together. Mara will always be my favorite character but due to the massive events of the previous novels we rarely got to see Luke and Ben together, their relationship is brilliant to read and very amusing at times. I loved the witty banter, and especially the scene where Ben starts singing an ewok song to Luke :D ( )

The first novel in the Star Wars series Fate of the Jedi. Something weird is happening to young Jedi, and Grand Master Luke Skywalker sets out on a mission to uncover the truth along with his teenage son Ben. Plus a lot of other Galactic Alliance political drama. ( )

This audio book had good production value. It is at least as good as that of the last Star Wars audio book I reviewed "Death Troopers" but this story was much, much better.

Set 40 years or so after the empire falls, the new republican government has come to their own set of over empowerment trying to protect citizens from those who have more power over them and keep an extra watchful eye on the Jedi.

Luke Skywalker talks the hit for the whole religion and is outcast from the New Republican space. Of course, Luke has a reason for doing it. He tries to find others to help, and finds other groups of Force users who have been in hiding for centuries. The ending was anticlimactic, not enough to make me NEED to get the next one, but if given the opportunity I would. ( )
