Planet Of Twilight Review

Planet Of Twilight
by Barbara Hambly

Review By: Neil Richard

Rating: 1.5 out of 5

I just want to cry right about now. All this time and effort to get these books on CD so I can listen to them in the car and all I want to do is jump out and run away. And stopping the car first is optional.

In Planet Of Twilight the usual suspects get into the usual trouble and rescue each other. As usual. The “big” twist of the story is the sentient bugs and crystals residing on the planet Leia and Luke get stranded on. The bugs themselves are the Death Seed Plague while the crystals can kill them (and be used in spacecraft).

We also see the continuation (and finally the end) of Luke’s infatuation with Callista. Maybe now Mara Jade can strut her stuff. And 3PO and R2 getting lost on their own without anyway of getting back to Coruscant? Whatever.

The best news out of all this? The next one in line, Rebel Mission To Ord Mantell, is actually pretty good.

The review is also available in Word and PDF.
