Duel at Shattered Rock Reviews
Star Wars Legends Project #129Background: Duel at Shattered Rock was written by Ryder Windham and published in March of 2011. In addition to his extensive involvement with dozens of Star Wars publications, Windham also wrote the previous books in this series.Duel at Shattered Rock takes place during the Clone Wars, 21-22 years before the Battle of Yavin. It picks up where The Curse of the Black Hole Pirates (my review) left off. The main characters are the same as the last book: Nuru Kungurama, Breaker, Sharp, Knuckles, Chatterbox, Cleaver, and Lalo Gunn. Most of the story takes place on the planet Vaced.Summary: Their attempt at diplomacy with the Chiss may not have turned out as planned, but Breakout Squad has no time to contemplate the outcome. Barely returned from the Unknown Regions, Palpatine has contacted them for another mission: To rendezvous with the representative from the newly-liberated planet Kynachi and escort him the rest of the way to Coruscant. But Count Dooku and his minions know exactly where they're headed, and he has other plans.Review: I should not be complaining that this book is another entry in an attempt to tell a cohesive, larger story made up of bits that stand alone . . . but this entry is just not interesting. We're back to dealing with Kynachi again, which is just a boring world, and then most of the book is taken up with some pretty boilerplate action in the midst of obvious set-up for the big denouement in the last book (which, obviously, doesn't pay off yet).Again, this isn't actively bad, but it's still pretty boring, and I'm particularly tired of having, not only everything from the previous books explained to me but things like what The Force is explained as well. I'm expecting at least some good fireworks from the climactic finale ahead. At least, all of this had better lead up to something worthwhile or this series won't have justified its existence.D+
That ending tho!!
The plot is thickening in the 3rd installment of this little series. our young Jedi is coming into his power and we see some of those who we thought were friends are not really that. I look forward to the last book in this series to solve all the mysteries and I do hope for a good ending.
An OK young readers series, but not even in the same galaxy (far, far away, you might say...) as Jude Watson's earlier young reader series'.
It was a good book.
I think it is a good book for whatever level is after beginners
