There are so many Star Wars books out there now I think it’s hard to pick up good ones. First I read the Zahn trilogy and was absolutely enthralled. Then I read several other books. Barbara Hambley’s Those Who Hunt the Night was so brilliant I was excited about Children of the Jedi , but was utterly disappointed. I read a few other crappy books. Then I read the new Zahn duology (is that a word) and liked it, but not as well as his first books.
Ah yes, I also read the one that starts right at the end of Return of the Jedi, where aliens attack and the Empire and Rebellion have to ally themselves. Meh.
So, what are the best books out there? Which are worth reading? As I mentioned before, I highly suggest:
Heir to the Empire
Dark Force Rising
The Last Command
all by Timothy Zahn
