The Ruins of Dantooine
By Veronica Whitney-Robinson
Reviewed by Alex Koss, US
I was surprised [...] better than it had any right to be [...] story itself is well paced [...] didn't feel like any of it dragged [...] a weak game of cat and mouse. A chase that doesn't at all seem to be important, and stock forgettable characters [...] a perfectly average book, with ties to Star Wars...read full review

[Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void] Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void
By Tim Lebbon
Reviewed by Ewan, Star Wars Books & Comics
A good introduction to the Dawn of the Jedi era [...] an interesting dynamic between the main story's protagonist and antagonist and it is more than just simple sibling rivalry [...] flashbacks are where the reader can emphasise the strongest with both characters' perceptions of the Force [...] Unfortunately as the main story focuses on Lanoree's journey [...] our empathy is flavoured to be one-sided [...] nice touch in this story is the sense of world-building [...] a cast of strong, believable characters and a plot that engages both his characters and the reader...read full review
