There is a twist ending I won't give away, but I will say Chancellor Palpatine makes a sudden appearance and there IS an actual confrontation between jedi and bounty hunter.
Readers might experience sympathy with the Boba character as he is basically a boy who grows up to be a cold warrior because of what happened to his father.
Having said that, while this series was primarily for younger readers, adults will get something out of it as well. I know I did.
-Anakin( a couple months away from becoming Vader) and Boba encounter each other and become friends( which actually shows why Darth didn't strangle Boba when he objected to his orders in ESB- because they are friends.).
- Boba goes to the Jedi Temple and encounters Mace Windu (killed Jango Fett) by just a glimpse.
- Boba gets his weapons back and breaks into the emporer's throne room and fights Mace, with Mace about to win when Palpatine interrupts, and Boba tells the soon- to- be emporer about dooku. (I still think Boba should have killed Mace in ROTS instead of Anakin.)
Boba Fett sounds excited to be going to Coruscant for the first time, except it's not. The author must have forgotten that in the first novel of the series, penned by another, Boba had already had an adventure there. This is very jarring, as well as some of the encounters. Ventress is mentioned in a fight against Fett but in the timeline, she is enjoying her supposed death at that point. Boba meeting Anakin seems highly out of place, given its intimacy and how those characters reacted to each other in their scenes in the actual film of ESB.
Failing to connect to the previous book is one sin, but for Boba Fett to decide "oh well, Jabba won't mind if I don't bring in that bounty"...??? err, no. That's just not Boba Fett. It doesn't even make sense with what Elizabeth Hand has already written about Jabba (previously a big time gangster with little time for losers) for him to be shrugged off so simply.
It's such a shame, because the other books were quite good. They had direction and purpose.
This one is a shambles. Give it a miss and end with "A New Threat" instead.
