Quick Review: Star Wars: Coruscant Night volume I Jedi Twilight is one fun read.

Michael Reaves is a great Star Wars Expanded Universe writer and he delivers with this book. Jax Pavan is a solid new entry into the Star Wars canon of Jedi and his challenge of trying to stay hidden in the force and then re-discovering his connection with the force.

The multiple plot lines interweave very nicely too with the robot, Jedi and Black Sun plots all coming together and crossing paths as they should.

Yes — as the first book in a new series there are a lot of loose threads left at the end of this book. But that’s how it should be cause that will make the next book (Street of the Shadows) and the one after that (Patterns of Force) interesting as those loose ends get tied up.

Like why is Vader interested in Jax? Will Kaird make it home? What’s the deal with Prince Xizor?

No this isn’t a heavy duty series like Legacy of the Force, which is actually a really good thing. Legacy of the Force left us emotionally drained and it’s great to just get into a series like this.

It’s been a long time since I read “Shadow’s of the Empire” but wasn’t the premise that Vader had killed Xizor’s family and that he didn’t know exactly why Xizor was out to get him? Yet in this book he acknowledges him as “Prince” etc.
