Yeah, but I like it more when put into context with future books, especially with the rise of the sith.

Like the ending of the series when the Vong's secret is revealed.

yeah with that lil rat(which i thought was disgraceful for such a great race as the Vong) lol; it also is supposed to show how and why Jacen Solo becomes and stays as Darth Caedus. Which the current books are trying to find out why he turned when he was such a great Jedi, it was his destiny and he was already Caedus once he returned( Jacen Died on the Seedship). Thats my opinion but there are other explanations which i cannot wait to hear about and perhaps expand on in the current series( as i continues). Just curious but is anyone on the Fate of the Jedi Series or is everybody still on New Jedi Order or Legacy?

Mara Jade was also hot in those earlier books as well ;) And both were Rangas.

Traitor was interesting... we got around to finishing it today...

(we're down to reading only some four books right now, instead of the previous six ++)

Fate of the Jedi series is looking good. I have so far read the first three books.
The forces of Ghoul's Assassin break off from main attack force, and seek out spletstesser's Undercover Agents!.....With 156,771,387,021 power remaining, they manage to eliminate 1360922 of spletstesser's Undercover Agents!

I inherently know all details of the Star Wars universe including the EU... I have read only two of the books and only a handful of the comics. It's all non-essential trash anyway... the only true Star Wars comes in one form - film.

go away, nonbeliever. True, the movies are simply incomparable but there are also a lot of very good Star Wars books, for example the Thrawn trilogy or the Legacy of the Force series.
