Format: Paperback
I've been a bit disappointed at how much of the modern Star Wars EU seems to have lost sight of what made the Original Trilogy such a success. Fortunately, John Jackson Miller seems to get it. The KOTOR series starts off with a bang and immediately feels like Star Wars. It's got a gripping story, a great ensemble cast, clever humor, and beautiful imagery.

However, it's not just a rehash of Star Wars. The hero, Zayne Carrick, is a bit of a goofball as a Jedi. However, he's framed for the murder of his fellow Padawans. He joins up with Gryph, a Snivvian con artist whose outlandish sense of humor had me laughing out loud at times. Then there's the mysterious and beautiful Jarael who is as tough as she is lovely (really, I kind of have a crush on her). Finally, the group is joined by Rohlan Dyre, a Mandalorian who questions the war.

The Destroyer arc gets KOTOR back on track, providing the gang with a larger story. I'd criticized the previous issues for their lack of focus, but now we have a compelling story in Jarael's fight against slavers. And like Zayne's quest for revenge, Jarael's leads to all sorts of adventures. We are finding out a lot more about Jarael, much of it unexpected.

My only criticism with this arc is the Chantique character. KOTOR did a great job making female characters, particularly Jarael, more interesting than simply sex objects. However, Chantique slips back to the tired old trope of the scantily clad female femme fatale. She just doesn't seem like a worthy villain for the series.

Overall, I'm still enjoying KOTOR much more than I have most Star Wars EU these days.

John Jackson Miller continues the saga of Knights of the Old Republic in volume 8 Destroyer. Zayne found out that Jarael not only has force capability but also used to be a slaver, previously in volume seven. So now, Zayne, Jarael, and the crew are on a quest for her redemption. Although Zayne and Jarael attempt to free crystal mining slaves, the rest of the crew is unaware of the complete situation at hand. After a trial and error run, Zayne goes undercover to invade the Crucible. Realizing he might be in too deep, Zayne finds himself being tested, if not tortured, both physically and mentally. This book is yet again a great installment of the KOTOR series. Gamers will be excited when they read this chapter because both Malak and Revan make an appearance! I was actually thinking about giving this a 4 star rating because sometimes I felt like there was a little too much focus on each particular event(almost feeling drought out). Although I did enjoy it all and understand that Miller is just attempting to make each character that much more meaningful to us as readers. All in all I give Destroyer 4.7/5 stars!

If you loved the KOTOR game, you love this comic series. If you like star wars, you will love them also.

Great story, and well done.
