Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Hoole, Zak, and Tash have come to the planet Necropolos, hoping to buy a new ship to replace the Lightrunner. Necropolos is kind of creepy--it has the biggest cemetery in the galaxy, which doesn't exactly make it much of a tourist spot. When nefarious bounty hunter Boba Fett comes into town, claiming that people he has killed in Necropolos have come back to life, Zak and Tash know something very weird is going on. Zak accepts a dare to go into the Necropolos cemetery at midnight. But maybe he should have thought twice. Just because the bodies are buried, that doesn't mean they're dead.

OMG! You have to have this book if you like this series. It's great. But I warn you...it's HIGHLY freaky and so sad....sniffle...While voyaging to the planet Necropilis Tash and Zak run into some big problems...and meet some new friends. This stroy was well written , and hautingly sad , as I went to be crying soon after....be warned chara death....but nothing seroius. So anywayz you SHOULD SHOULD SHOULD buy it.

If you like action and fun this is a great book to read, I got it mainly because I like Boba Fett and when I read I loved it. It's a great story about Zac and Tash and their Uncle Hoole go to a planet called Necropolis and how they get pretty mixed up with Boba and get into a bit of trouble.

The story of Star Wars Galaxy of Fear: City of the Dead begins with Uncle Hoole, Zak and Tash, along with Uncle Hoole's droid, DV-9 (or Deevee for short) traveling through space with Han, Luke, Leia, and Chewbacca in the Millennium Falcon after narrowly evading the unpleasant circumstance of being eaten by a planet -literally. Now traveling with their rescuers , the Millennium Falcon along with its crew and passengers makes its way to a destination, a planet named Necropolis (meaning: City of the Dead. Catchy, huh?).

During the flight, while sleeping in one of the Falcon's compartments with his sister, Zak has an awful dream about his deceased parents. You see, Zak and Tash were from Alderaan, and while Zak and his sister were on a vacation off of the plane, by the time they got back, they had already heard of the destruction of their planet, but more than that, the deaths of all of their loved ones. Since all their relatives were now dead, Uncle Hoole, who is a Shi'ido or shape-changer and who was only related to them through the marriage of his brother into their family, took them under his guardianship. They had been with him and Deevee ever since.

So Zak dreamed, and in his dream he was back in his bed on Alderaan with nothing that seemed out of shape. Surprised, he got out of bed and looked out the window. He then noticed that he wasn't in Alderaan but in space, watching the stars in the distance. Though he could hardly believe it, he continued staring out. As Zak continued to stare out the window, two objects were floating toward him. At first Zak couldn't make out what they were, but as he continued to stare he knew with out a doubt that they were his parents...and they were dead. As his parents drew closer, Zak backed away from the window.

A Kid's Review on October 17, 2006
Format: Paperback
Zac and Tash are on their home planet, but they had to leav quickley because the planet was going to be blown up by the death star, a weapen created by the empire. Zac Tash and their uncle Hoole were put on a transporter to get to the nearest planet. The planet was called City of the Dead. They went to the planet to buy a star ship, but while on the planet Zac made some friends and to get into the club. He had to go into the middle of the sacreat grave yard and stab a knife into the ground in front of the mosleam but when he does a hand shoots out of the ground and grabs his foot.

I checked this out at my school library after waiting forever for it to arrive at the library. This book is by far the best book in the Galaxy Of Fear series. It was very interesting to learn about the mysterious planet Necropolis and the book was layed out very well, Im not gunna give away any spoilers but I can tell you that one of the main characters gets buried alive!!! It was so good i kept reading it and reading it page after page, and I ended up finishing it in 2 DAYS! Do yourself a favor if you like Star Wars or/and horror books, BUY THIS!

Zak and Tash go to a planet with strong superstition of the dead. They are looking for a spaceship there. With their Uncle Hoole, a shape-shifter, they find out Dr. Evazan's secret. They have many adventures along the way. This was a great book. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.The author did a great of explaining. I highly reccomend this book to any sci-fi fan.
