This was a tough book to read, well the first half. It started off with adding the character of Kajin Savaros and a Sith group called the Inquisitors, and to be honest, it threw me right out of the story. Kajin has force powers, but untrained, and winds up in the Imperial City. The Inquisitors are Sith trained secret police of some sort, and adding both in the third book of the series felt odd to me. With the Inquisitors, if they are such a force on Coruscant, why hasn’t Jax and his team encountered them before? The Kajin storyline I did not care much for as well, as I did not feel it added much to the over all story of the 3 books.
The first half of this book, was slow going for me, setting up the story of Kajin, and then also plenty of boring pages of Jax’s team discussing an element called Bota. Bota intensifies the force and Darth Vader is after it, but Jax’s team in trying to hide it, but the story around it is who has it, with each team member trying to determine that. All and All makes for a boring story. I put this book down for a month, and every time I looked at it, I really did not want to go back to it. Finally I figured I needed to finish it and this series. The second half moved along a bit better, but over all disappointing.
From reading the 3 books, if they edited them down to one book, it may have made for an interesting story. But I found throughout the 3 books, especially with the last 2, to many wasted pages that did not add much to the over all story. I don’t think I could recommend this series to anyone, and with the amount of Star Wars books available, there are better then this one.
