Well, the EU as we know it is dead-ish now, with a new continuity taking over. Here is my final Top Ten Star Wars Novels list! I do include trilogies as a single entry, but not 9 or 18 book sagas. In chronological order: Darth Plageuis: a masterpiece of continuity and character and the final revelation about two of the most interesting characters in the entire saga. Shatterpoint: superbly written with great action. Dark Rendezvous: sadly the only novel to star Yoda, my all time favorite character, it does a perfect job of showing why he's the greatest Jedi in strength and philosophy. Shadows of Mindor: a great epic story from an untouched part of history with a cool dark side villain. Thrawn Trilogy: the classic that started it all. eminently re-readable. just full of great sequence and characters. Jedi Academy Trilogy: while it gets a little silly at times, it's a solid story that establishes the new status quo of the EU and feels more "Star Wars" than anything else in the Bantam Era. (it actually had a Sith villain in it!) Star By Star: the high point of the NJO, it's unbelieveable how dark the story gets and how far the heroes fall. Traitor: a disturbing twist on what we know about the light and the dark. middle books of Legacy of the Force: I thought this was a really well written series that very beliveably turned a hero into a villain. The middle books were particularly excellent though I don't remember why anymore lol. ending books of Fate of the Jedi: the beginning of this series was hugely time wasting, but the back half was quite excellent with Luke and the Jedi facing their ultimate foe as well as an entire army of Sith. It works as a really good finale to the EU.
