This is a Scholastic book, intended for kids 8 & up, however Ryder does not write-down to his readers, ergo people of any age can enjoy this novel.
The Amazon page lists the book as having 224 pages, but they must be including the title pages & table of contents, because there are 216 pages (even that is including the Acknowledgments).
Maybe i am making connections where there are none, but chapter 6 starts on page 66. Is this an allusion to Maul's similarity to other "adversaries" in mythology like Habayu & Set or mere coincidence?
About the artwork: just to clear any confusion, the picture on the front of the book is of Darth Maul glowering, sans-hood; although the slip-cover is of a hooded Maul with a more complacent stare.
In summation: whether you are an allegiant Star Wars fan or have never heard of Star Wars (i pity you if you are the latter) you can enjoy this book.
I enjoyed reading the book and learned more about the Star Wars world (dark side).
Enjoyed the read
Learned more background of the Star Wars world and some of the key Dark Side players
Not enough big picture events for me to give the book more than 4 Stars
I am happy the book came out and also happy I read it.
For all big or true Star War book fans read this book. You know you want to.
If you are not a big Star Wars fan you will enjoy the story but unless you follow the Dark Side background some of the sub plot action may not light your fire. (sort of 3 Stars for non big Star Wars fans)
Some of the mythology of The Clone Wars has been added in (Mother Talzin and the Nightsisters/Brothers of Dathomir) which I really enjoyed as something that ties the parts of the Saga together. I am not sure whether this book has been re-classified as "Legends," but I wouldn't stop that from recommending it.
First off, this is actually a really nice binding from something aimed at a younger audience. The book comes with a slipcase, and the cover is a glossy, thick hardcover with nice artwork. The story itself is 214 pages in length, so you can finish it in a couple evenings. And while it might be marketed at a younger audience, the story is not dumbed down or any less violent. Best of all, it’s a great story.
I’m not super familiar with Maul’s background, so I’ve only read a couple books that have featured him and each of those only covered a moment of his life. This book, on the other hand, covers a very large chunk of his life. From his childhood on Mustafar to his discovery on Lotho Minor by his brother Savage Opress, the book covers a lot of territory. There’s the harsh training Darth Sidious put Maul through. His relationship with his master and glimpses of how his psyche was broken and molded into that of a Sith. Through the story, we see Maul the student. Then he passes his trials to become the apprentice, earning the honorific of Sith Lord. We catch moments of his training at the Orsis Academy which gets mentioned in Maul: Lockdown.Read more ›
