I read through the "Visual Guide" yesterday. I like the overall structure of the story, and the various characters seem interesting. The part of the series that I am most interested in as of right now is the hand weapons. The Sith Inquisitor has a lightsaber with a blade that spins in a circle, the young hero has a combo lightsaber/blaster, and both the ISB agent and the alien warrior Zeb have a combination blaster rifle/force staff that is similar to those wielded by General Grievous' body guards. All of them look very cool.
