A solid and riveting story!,
This review is from: Star Wars: Knight Errant (Mass Market Paperback)
I was lucky enough to get an early copy of this book and I'm happy to say that it not only met, but exceeded, my expectations by far.
Knight Errant opens up a whole new era in the Star Wars galaxy with a vibrant cast of characters in an action-packed adventure. As a bonus, readers who are familiar with the newly launched comic series will have the pleasure of seeing the comic characters and the world surrounding them expanded in full prose.
Without mentioning spoilers, this story is SO much bigger than a lone Jedi in Sith space! Kerra is a complex character and unique in that we don't see many Jedi leading ladies in Star Wars novels. Surrounded by Sith and treachery, she holds her own with her sharp wit, moral compass and imposing combat skills.
And while Kerra is the protagonist, I found that I was just as compelled and intrigued by the ensemble cast around her. The wide array of Sith, humans, aliens, soldiers and civilians alike each have their own vibrant personalities and narratives that drew me in deeper with every chapter. The story is tight and fast-paced with interweaving and intersecting plots that all click together at the end for a hair-raising and unexpected conclusion.
I can easily say that this was one of the best Star Wars novels I've read in quite a while.
