I must admit this has already been much more positive than I thought. I figured I'd get nothing but hate for the post NJO books. I must admit, I have been reading about the events of the LoTF and FotJ books on wookiepedia, and they do sound pretty interesting.
What about the Bane books, and Crosscurrent?
I found the first Bane book okay-- it didn't live up to the potential set up by Jedi vs. Sith
-- and the second one hugely tedious. I didn't bother with the third.
was good, solid Star Wars
-y fun. Who cares if it stars characters you never heard of before? So did a movie called Star Wars
back in 1977.
