Format: Paperback
"The Freedon Nadd Uprising" is another example of the good decision Lucas Books made in deferring to Dark Horse Comics to telling of the Tales of the Jedi series. This is brief graphic novel, about half the size of the traditional comic books. It serves as a means to introducing the characters and the events that will change the lives of the Jedi and the Republic some 4000 years before "A New Hope" (It should be noted that there is another "Tales of the Jedi" graphic novel series set 1000 years prior to this one). It introduces the reader to the characters of Ulic Qel-Droma, Cay Qel-Droma, Nomi Sunrider, Exar Kun, Alema, and numerous other names that became major players in "The Sith War". The story follows an uprising of the followers of a dead Sith Lord named Freedon Nadd on the planet of Onderon. The spirit of Freedon Nadd is still present and using the frail body of the evil former king of Onderon as temporary means to further his evil agenda. Most of the action in the novel deals with the Jedi putting down the uprising and rescuing Jedi Master Arca Jeth. However, the more important developments involve Nadd's identifying the idle rich cousins Satal Keto (sp?) and Alema as greater instruments to enforce his will. The uprising and the former King's role in it were merely distractions to mask Nadd's greater plans. This quick little graphic novel does a marvelous job at laying the groundwork for the treachery that is to come.

This was a great beginning to the TALES OF THE JEDI saga. It properly followed the story outline provided by Tom Veitch in the end text of DARK EMPIRE number 5 (It's too bad that the future stories strayed from that superb plotline). Some of my favorite scenes involved Satal Keto and Aleema discovering the ancient Sith medallion and unknowingly succombing to the dark side of the force. This was a great set-up to a story that would later be ruined by Kevin J. Anderson's interference. The only reason that I did not give this a five star rating was because a certain character gets his arm sliced off and then hooks a fully functioning droid arm on as an instant on the spot replacement! UGHH! Other than that, you have a really cool story.

Although the bulk of the story happens in the next two books in the Tales of the Jedi series, this is a good setup with enough action to keep you waiting to read Dark Lords of the Sith. Those of you who may be looking for the story of Exar Kun (freed thousands of years later by students of Luke Skywalker) can start reading here, also if you're looking for early tales of Light Side vs. Dark Side, this is a great starting place. But I wouldn't suggest reading this without its sequels.
