First Look: Death Star

The Death Star's name says it all, with bone-chilling accuracy. It is a virtual world unto itself -- equipped with uncanny power for a singularly brutal purpose: to obliterate entire planets in the blink of an eye. Its annihilation of the planet Alderaan lives in infamy. And its own ultimate destruction, at the hands of Luke Skywalker, is the stuff of legend. But what is the whole story, and who are the players, behind the creation of this world-killing satellite of doom?
The near extermination of the Jedi order cleared the way for Palpatine -- power-hungry Senator and Sith Lord -- to seize control of the Republic, declare himself Emperor, and usher in a fearsome, totalitarian regime. But even with the dreaded Darth Vader to enforce his sinister will, the threat of rebellion still looms. And the Emperor knows that only abject fear -- and the ability to punish dissent with devastating consequences -- can ensure his unchallenged control of the galaxy. Enter ambitious and ruthless government official Wilhuff Tarkin, architect of the Emperor's terrifying dream come true.

But from inception to completion, construction of the unprecedented Death Star is awash in the intrigues, hidden agendas, unexpected revelations, and daring gambits of those involved on every level. The brightest minds and boldest egos, the most ambitious and corrupt, the desperate and the devious, all have a stake in the Death Star and its potential to control the fate of the galaxy.

Soldiers and slaves, loyalists and Rebels, spies and avengers, the innocent and the evil -- all their paths and fates will cross and intertwine as the Death Star moves from its maiden voyage to its final showdown and a shadowy chapter of Star Wars history is stunningly illuminated in a thrilling, unforgettable adventure.

Star Wars: Death Star is by Michael Reaves and Steve Perry, with cover art by John Harris. It will be available in hardcover from Del Rey Books this Fall.
Boy dose this sound good. This is now on my must get list.

I’m not normally one for buying SW-books, unless it’s behind-the-scenes stuff. But this one actually is rather tempting.

Let’s all be proud of this technological terror they’ve constructed. smilehuge.gif

This could explain why it took 16 to 18 year to get done.

My Favorite Quotes

"Wherever a Jedi is, there must the Force be, too. Wherever we are, is home." ~Master Yoda; Yoda -- Dark Rendezvous, by Sean Stewart.

"Wrong will be right when Aslan comes in sight. At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more. When he bares his teeth, winter meets its Death, and when he shakes his mane, spring shall come again."

You can't go through this life being afraid to love, because, without love, there just isn't any reason for living. ~Little House on the Prairie.

I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her. ~Notting Hill.

“PIPPIN: I didn't think it would end this way.

GANDALF: End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.

PIPPIN: What? Gandalf? See what?

GANDALF: White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.

PIPPIN: Well, that isn't so bad.

GANDALF: No. No, it isn't.”

Sorry for the bump, but I nearly got hold of a copy of this in the US. Curse Borders and it's returns policy. I'd like to reiterate, if anyone has this or has read it please post their opinion on whether it's worth a read, I'd love to know.

This book is magnificent. The storyline is great and I liked the characters.
One of the most interesting Star Wars books of the last years.

"It is known that there are infinite number of worlds, simply because there is infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so average population of all planets in Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that population of whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of deranged imagination."

Thanks for that Master, I'd forgotten about this book until I saw the 4 page preview in the back of Darth Bane: Rule Of Two and I've been wanting to read it ever since. I may try my hand at getting it online.
