    1 thought on “The Last Jedi: Star Wars”

    1. Well, I loved writing it. And working with Michael was, as always, fantastic. And I loooove the cover. :)

    2. Michael Reaves, whose input in the Star Wars Expanded Universe has been notable (at current count, he's written nine books in the Star Wars book franchise), brings back his character Jax Pavan in "The Last Jedi", this time with co-author Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff.While I enjoyed "The Last Jedi", it did not have the same spark and appeal that the first three Pavan books (The Coruscant Nights trilogy) had for me. Not that "The Last Jedi" wasn't exciting and entertaining. It was. The Reaves/Bohnhoff w [...]

    3. Really enjoyed this - a well thought out and executed novel in the Legends continuity.Jax was appropriately heroic in the titular role, and Vader was a suitably threatening figure throughout.The only thing that diminishes its score from a full five stars is the lack of humour - it was a little dour, and could have used a bit more of Den to lighten the tone a bit.Reading this, I was struck by how much Jax and Laranth resemble Kanan and Hera from Rebels. I might have to go back and read the Corusc [...]

    4. The spectacular conclusion of all that was past, now taking you into a new era for the STAR WARS revolution & the changed world!! Having followed the journey from the very beginning when one looked at the world through the eyes of Anakin Skywalker and his master Obi Wan Kenobi, and learning the ways of the Jedi, this is now a turning point within the STAR WARS history. All that you have encountered so far in this remarkable, original series is soon to be changed as a great catalyst erupts th [...]

    5. I hate giving this book only two stars because I love Reaves as a Star Wars author, but there were some major problems with continuity errors that really bugged me. Your mileage may vary as to whether that lessens your interest in this one.Another cause for the low stars is that the narrative feels a bit "lost" for lack of a better term. Lots of wild goose chases and plots that go nowhere (either in terms of carrying the story forward *or* character development).Still, it is an enjoyable read - [...]

    6. The book started out relatively slowly, or possibly only seemed to due to the amount of time since I finished the previous book in the series. However, it picked up and was an enjoyable read. I look forward to the next one, if there is one.

    7. Read the Full Review: thefoundingfields/2013/03/. A/N: This was initially intended to be part of a dual review with fellow reviewer Shadowhawk, which explains the slightly different (no introduction between the quote and the blurb) format. “Another strong collaboration between Bonhoff and Reaves, but ultimately, The Last Jedi doesn’t quite get everything right.“ ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields"The Emperor’s ruthless Order 66 has all but exterminated the Jedi. The few remaining who st [...]

    8. Jax Pavan, a hidden Jedi, from the beginning of the story, running from Vader's (supposed) threat and deep in Pavan's heart, he suspects he is not the last Jedi (?). After some losses, a rebel group he is part of, Whiplash, is found in dissension. Only after 280 pages do we see some Jedi fight And, by the end of the book, Jax learns something that could actually help him recover what he lost to Vader.I wish there were more lightsaber fights but the mere presence of the Dark Lord is worth it.

    9. Star Wars: The Last Jedi feels like a Star Wars MMORPG novel. This is a curious statement because we have had lots of Star Wars MMORPG novels and none of them felt like this. The Old Republic tie-in fiction is more or less identical to regular Star Wars fiction with the caveat it is rare that it's allowed to finish its story. The Ruins of Dantooine, made for the Galaxies MMORPG, is widely considered to be one of the worst Star Wars novels of all time. The Last Jedi, by contrast, is a very fun no [...]

    10. So grateful that we got one more book in this great series!!!!! This one was my favorite of the four books. Could not let this one go, so much fun!!!!

    11. A mixed bag, as usual. I don't know if it's Bohnhoff's contributions (which weren't so helpful in Shadow Games) or Reaves' progression as an author or just the point in the story we've reached, but Last Jedi finally feels like Jax Pavan's story is hitting its stride. It begins to deliver on some of the promise of the Dark Times setting, as Jax is hit with stress and suspicion, tragedy and guilt, and is forced to make some difficult choices that compromise his friendships and his integrity. The s [...]

    12. The Last Jedi is a book full of surprises. While the title of the novel may be way off the mark as far as canon goes, that’s not something Jax Pavan knows. For him, he may be the only Jedi left. As the galaxy descends into the dark times, Jax finds himself becoming more and more focused on Darth Vader. He is the nightmare to Jax’s hope. In this story of darkness, Jax has to conquer the shadows and face his fears. But we all know that Vader isn’t the one who dies.Readers may be surprised to [...]

    13. This might be it for me in terms of Star Wars novel fiction… at least for a while. As I write this I can’t see anything forthcoming on the release schedule that’s of interest. It may have something to do with the new Star Wars sequels expecting to be made in the coming years, which leaves the EU somewhat in the dark.As for this novel, well…. I have mixed feelings about it. Let’s go back the beginning. Michael Reaves set out to make a detective series with a Jedi set in the lower region [...]

    14. Very lengthy novel, but the content certainly made up for it. This was a great conclusion to the five-part saga of Den Dhur and I-5YQ. To be honest, I believe that a sequel would not be a bad idea, just because it would be nice to see them as well as Jax Pavan go through further character development and Force training. My main complaint is that a few characters seemingly disappeared without much more than a mention. Very interesting read, regardless.

    15. If any droid can be trained in the ways of the Force, it'd be I-Five as an HRD[Or R2. :P]Jax helps the Whiplash leader Yimmon get off Coruscant. Vader finds them though, abducts Yimmon, and leads Jax to search for/retrieve the Cerean before it's too late. The resistance cell (Rangers) on Topwara really wants Jax to work with them. Their behavior is a bit shady, especially with what happens. Jax learns that choices can lead to painful consequences, but hesitation/indecision can lead to deadly one [...]

    16. The Last Jedi is about Jax, one of the few surviving Jedi from Order 66. Jax is part of a budding rebellious uprising against the Empire called Whiplash and he’s on a secret mission to move a Whiplash leader to safety. This book felt like one of those dreams that no matter how hard you try to run, you’re just not getting anywhere. I felt that way because the writing was either choppy or tended towards info-dumping which slowed down the pace a lot for the first half of the book. It also took [...]

    17. SLast year I had a bit of a Star Wars binge where I read one every other book that I was reading for a few months. Since SW was such a huge part of my childhood it was nice familiar feeling. I could hear the sound effects, the music. I think that is why SW books are popular in prison and the military for people away from home. One of my favorite SW novels came as a total surprise. That was Reeves first SW novel Darth Maul Shadow Hunter. When I saw it on the shelf I wasn’t going to read it, but [...]

    18. Its been a while since I've read a Star Wars book. I enjoyed the things this book explored including (1) dabbling in the ripples and islands of time, (2) the exploration the Jedi took in his own dark side and using it for good, (3) a droid with Force sensitivity, (4) and a look at the rebellion in its infancy.However, this was a part of a series (though not billed as such on the cover). While I could understand the plot without reading the previous three books, I did feel I missed out on relatio [...]

    19. I was not all that excited to read The Last Jedi. I pretty much hated the three previous books in the Coruscant Nights series, but since I read all the Star Wars books, I knew I was going to have to tackle it eventually.So imagine my surprise when I found myself really enjoying it. The story starts with a bang! The opening events caught me completely by surprise and had me excited to see what would happen next. I will say, the book seemed a bit padded to me though. I know that most Star Wars boo [...]

    20. So far the best Star Wars book I've read this year. It really doesn't get any better than this. It has all the parts that make a Star Wars story unforgettable with crisp quips and quick moving but detailed and action filled scenes.Then add in quirky unlikely companions such as a former journalist (a plucky Sullustan),a shifty Coruscant Police Sector Chief secretly helping them and the too smart for his own good smart aleck droid I5Y-Q. Then there is our hero of the story Jax Pavan who believes h [...]

    21. Taking place between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope, this story is tightly constricted by its position in the overall story. The main character, a surviving Jedi who fears there may not be any others, can't really win, or else the events of Episodes 4-6 can't happen. So, the best he can do is achieve a draw versus Darth Vader and the forces of the Empire. To be honest, that's a bit depressing, but the writing is good. Because this is a sequel to a trilogy which came out several ye [...]

    22. This is the fourth book in the Coruscant Nights series, but you can start with this book and have no problems enjoying it. Great opening sequence that brings you up to speed with the characters, their situations, and ultimate villain Darth Vader! It's so much fun to read a book were Vader was at his stongest, tracking down Jedi! Hero of the novel Jax Pavan is a fun character, never fully trained by his master, due to Order 66, but trying to do the best he can staying one step ahead of the Sith l [...]

    23. The fourth book in the Coruscant Nights series, The Last Jedi continues to follow the exploits of Jax Pavan and the rest of the nascent rebellion against Darth Vader, Palpatine, and the rest of the galactic empire. I've enjoyed the series thus far, and this book, though the weakest thus far, is still an enjoyable read. The character of Jax Pavan grows and remains interesting, but his fellow members of Whiplash (aside from Pol Haus) are relegated more to the background in this novel. Suffering pa [...]

    24. "Choice is loss. Indecision is all loss."The fact that this book is no longer canon--it's now part of the "Star Wars Legends" series--doesn't mean that it's not a good story. On the contrary, The Last Jedi is quite thrilling. Its protagonist, Jax Pavan, is complex and interesting--a former Jedi who doesn't know what to do after Order 66, who is on the balance between the Light and the Dark.The plot itself is exciting, although pacing is a little uneven, especially during the book's middle part. [...]

    25. This is the fourth book in this series (the first three comprise the Coruscant Nights trilogy) and a bit of wear is starting to show. The story has a strong start and a good, if anti-climactic conclusion, but the middle sort of dragged. The characters bounce around over-thinking and over-discussing the same things over and over again, and it gets boring. Once it ratchets up to the finale it becomes a page-turner, but again, an anti-climactic one. I say that because it suffers from the same drawb [...]

    26. If you're looking for a light read and you enjoy the Star Wars universe, you'll thoroughly enjoy The Last Jedi. It is a stand alone story situated in the Star Wars timeline between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Darth Vader is (I think) the only movie character to make an appearance in this book. The Last Jedi is a rescue tale full of action. The book is suitable for a wide audience and I think it might be best as an easy pick for your favorite young person. These are exactly the types of b [...]

    27. This is actually Coruscant Nights IV because they apparently wanted to treat this as a stand-alone followup to the trilogy. As excited as I was about the early stories of Jax Pavan (and, as noted above, Ferus Olin), it started to lose me. I didn’t like the foolhardiness of the interim Whiplash leader’s single-minded attempt to drive his rebels to assassinating the Emperor. I didn’t like the coincidence of Jax’s team catching up to him on this supposedly hard-to-get-to and highly secure s [...]

    28. "The Last Jedi" is the fourth in a series of Star Wars books about a Jedi, Jax Pavan, who escaped the slaughter of Order 66 and is the last Jedi (there are others but he is out of contact with any of them). The series started on Coruscant with Pavan and his team of misfits trying to eke out an existence in Coruscant's dark world below its streets but in "Last Jedi" he is working with Whiplash, a resistance group smuggling resistance people off the planet (kind of like the underground railroad). [...]

    29. Seems that I've read this book before reading the 'Coruscant Nights' trilogy that came before it and set up the characters, their history, and some of their motivations. However! This book was written as a stand-alone and very well written as one, too. I dropped into the narrative seamlessly and found myself enjoying the characters the most. Really, that is the greatest strength of this story: its characters. Especially the side characters. In the end, I wanted to know more about them moreso tha [...]

    30. This book had some interesting moments, but basically, in my opinion, it was one long, drawn out, dull rescue mission. Jax was transporting the leader of his Rebel group to a safe place, when Vader ambushes his ship. Fight ensues, things happen (don't want to give away too much) and Vader makes off with the leader. Jax then spent the next 400 or so pages trying to get him back. The next 400 slow, tedious, unnecessary, repetitive pages, where everyone else in the Rebel group spends all their time [...]
