Looking for new novels (in this case, tie-in novels) to read, I was wondering which novels from these two franchises stand out...and expand on the situations and characters... With Star Wars, I've heard the Karen Traviss novel focusing on the Clone Troopers is pretty good; I don't know about the novels taking place after the series....i.e. episodes 4-5-6... There are a couple: 'Milennium Falcon' by James Luceno....some written by Christie Golden...etc... With the Terminator novels, if it's something I wouldn't hav seen in a movie or television show(i.e. Sarah Conner Chronicles), I'm opened to reading something interesting.... I have read the novelization to Terminator: Salvation, and I wasn't impressed. Interestingly, I pretty much know what happened (or 'is happening') in the Star Wars books by reading various synopsis online: Chewbacca is dead, Jacen Solo is dead after turning to the dark-side; the leather-clad, hot-looking, Mara Jade Skywalker is dead; there is something about the Sith trying to rise again...etc... Help me out, folks... Tks.
