We don't even get a neat map of the planets -- instead, a tiny black and white globe that isn't helpful, with a 1"x3" little inset map of the area we have heard most about in the books. Beneath that is a little illustration of a couple of people from that planet, most of them pretty bad and unhelpful. And then we get some more bad pictures of some native flora and fauna and some corny captions beneath them.
This book is quite a waste of time and money!
I nonetheless have one or two complaints. Daniel Wallace's text has an annoying tendency to get melodramatic- Da Soocha V, for instance, was "[devastated] with the speed and fury of burning starfire. In a flash the Pinnacle Moon was no more." Wallace would have been wiser to assume that his readers were fairly hip fans who had already read Dark Empire II, along with most of the other source material.Read more ›
