Topic: Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor

Has anyone seen this book around? Its a reletively new book that takes place like 6 months after the Battle of Endor and so far its one of the best Star Wars books Ive read. I havent bought it tho, I just go to the bookstore at my university and sit there and read it. Saves me $30.

But anyways, as the title suggests it involves Luke and the planet Mindor, where a Sith lord named Lord Shadowspawn is launching some guerilla attacks with his TIE Defenders and TIE interceptors. He also has some Shadowstorm troopers (very cool). So far Ive come across an amazing space battle above Mindor where tons of asteroids were running-a-mok. Super cool. The writing is amazing, the author nails each character so well, expecially Han Solo. Solo went off with a six page rant about Mandalorians and it was HILARIOUS. Everything he said was true.

So yeah I havent finished but i recommend it highly so far. The Sith Lord guy is super cool (he has a lightsword, instead of a lightsaber [not a spoiler, its on the cover art]) the battle scenes are written masterfully, and all the characters come to life. I cant wait to finish it.

Yes I've heard of it. Trying to get hands on it. When i went to the bookstore they didnt have it. (Stupid barnes and noble... see if i waste money in your stores....) I'm glad it good because I need something new to read as i've finished all the books i have.

Re: Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor

Yeah I'm probably only going to buy it if everything is good (havent finished yet). After that last Star Wars book I read without leaving the bookstore i was releived I didnt drop the $25 for it. It was the 'Star Wars: Millenium Falcon' book, where Han, Leia, and their granddaughter try to figure out the origins of the Millenium Falcon. Everything was great until the ending...which was a big let down.

Yeah, I didn't like Falcon that much either. The ending really made the book poop.

Re: Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor

I heard about this when the cover artist appeared at a local comic con. He talked about it and gave out small prints of the artwork. I really like his Luke, and the shadow stormtroopers are always awesome to see.

I've started reading it, but only just the first few chapters.

Re: Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor

It was a great read I loved it. His books are always good. He is an awesome writer. I have a few books signed by him and he has always put something funny about the book in each one. Great guy.  He has a few other non Starwars books that are really good. I recommend Hero's Die. But there is alot of blood and gore so if you're not into that don't read but that book is excellent.
