Champions Of The Force Review

Champions Of The Force (Jedi Academy Trilogy #3)
by Kevin J. Anderson

Review By: Neil Richard

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

Mon Mothma has been cured. Leia has become the Chief of State for the New Republic. The Sun Crusher followed the Death Star III into one of the black holes around the Maw. Lando will be taking over the Kessel spice mines for the Smuggler’s Alliance. The Vors rebuilt their Cathedral of the Winds. Ackbar was proven innocent. The attempted kidnapping of Anakin Solo was thwarted. Kyp returned to the light side. Qwi Xux lost her memory.

Yet again, things are all nice and tidy in the Star Wars galaxy. All is right with the universe.

As usual, the last book is the one that closes all the loops. So the storyline and action scenes were all nicely put together and moved along nicely.

But everything was so predictable. Yes, I’ve read this book before, but even after the years since I’ve read it and stepping back and looking at all the books I’ve read, the hero almost always wins and none of the good guys get hurt (too seriously). That’s why I enjoy something different. It’s a change of pace and a change of scenery.

Not so with these classic Star Wars reads.
