Master Qui-Gon, more to say, have you? It is requested that this article, or a section of this article, be expanded. See the request on the listing or on this article's talk page. Once the improvements have been completed, you may remove this notice and the page's listing. Lots and lots of pages.
You become that character for the time being. And boy, was it scary being Jacen. It all seems utterly logical and inevitable to him—and, like all people who do terrible things, he has no sense of his own evil. I was so freaked by being in his head that when I switched point-of-view characters, I wanted to launder my brain.
It was so easy a trap to slip into. Anyone could do it in the right circumstances. How did you begin writing Star Wars books? KT: Well, I am a stranger, really. I was asked if I wanted to write Star Wars completely out of the blue in late Then I got the call in late February to do the first Republic Commando novel. Q: You seem to have a special affinity for the character of Boba Fett. The man is both a mess and an inspiration.
Paging Dr. Freud, Dr. Freud please pick up…and yet he still wins. So that makes a plus-year-old Boba a fascinating character to write. How does he handle that? The secondary fascination is how he handles the role of Mandalore.
That tells you not only a great deal about him, but also about the Mandalorians themselves. I never tire of Boba or the Mandalorians.
Those books offer a hard sf look at the complications of first contact distinguished by complex world building and an unsentimental focus on the evolving—in more ways than one! Some critics have complained that your view of humanity in this series is misanthropic. Just as many readers have found a message of hope and human decency in the books.
Like I said, I just build the characters from scratch, put them in the scenario, and let the model run. The interaction between the characters is the plot. The behavior of individuals and organizations is the way real ones behave: no heroes, and no villains, just people who are mixed bags of good and bad elements. This book offered everything you would want in a Star Wars novel and I would recommend it to any Star Wars fan. Nov 24, Omega Khaos rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Star Wars EU fans.
Bloodlines was really-really amazing book for me I enjoyed reading it so much I didn,t actually expect this book to be so good I was a little skeptical of Karen Traviss as an author Jul 14, Jerry rated it really liked it.
Boba Fett isn't my favorite character, but this story made for some exciting reading. Though I already know how this series ends, it'll be interesting to relive the events that led up to it. May 10, Gus rated it it was amazing. This book is a very exciting read.
The book flashes it point of view to that of Boba Fett, a bounty hunter known throughout the galaxy. After escaping the Sarlacc Pit, he learns that because he is a clone he is slowly dying from age acceleration.
His only hope of surviving is to find Ko Sai, a Kaminoan cloner who may have the solution to his age acceleration. As his journey begins he meets a young bounty hunter named Mirta Gev. She tells Fett that she is completing a bounty for Fett's daughter a This book is a very exciting read. She tells Fett that she is completing a bounty for Fett's daughter and that she can take him to her if he wants.
The last time Fett saw his daughter, Ailyn, she tried to kill him and took his ship. With the looming fact that he might die, Fett agrees but is unaware that Mirta is his granddaughter. Mirta is sent by Ailyn to lure Fett into a trap and kill him. Meanwhile, Jacen is the head of the Galactic Alliance Guard, a task force created to get rid of Corellian terrorists who are protesting on Coruscant.
The cause of the terrorism was the attack on Centerpoint and the assassination of Corellia's former Prime Minister. With the assassination of Corellia's Prime Minister, Thrackan is voted into office and starts urging Corellia and her fellow systems to leave the Galactic Alliance. This causes a lot of conflict between the Galactic Alliance and the Solo family.
Jacen starts to lead raids in Coruscant to deport Corellians back to Corellia. This angers Luke as he slowly feels Jacen slowly going to the dark side.
It also angers him because Jacen is taking Ben on these raids. Luke soon realizes that Lumiya is behind it although he doesn't know that she is working through Jacen. Han soon teams up with Fett to assassinate Thrackan in hopes that it will end the looming war between Corellia and the Galactic Alliance.
During the raids back on Coruscant, Ailyn is captured and killed during interrogation by Jacen. This upsets Boba but it brings his relationship with Mirta closer and they head out together to find a cure.
This book was very angering to see Jacen's character transition into something dark and evil. It is very frustrating to see Jacen's character be so swayed by Lumiya to the dark side. It seems as though soon Jacen will be to the point where he may start to hurt the people that he loves. He may do this with no remorse or regret.
This book is very good for any Star Wars fan. The book leaves the reader sitting at the edge of their seat with the flip of each page. A good age group for the readers would be from middle school and up. I don't recommend this book if you haven't read the first one in the series of if you aren't familiar with the Star Wars franchise. Feb 10, Priya rated it it was ok. I guess there aren't a lot of things I can say about this book other then I am not a huge fan of Karen Traviss. First of all, the woman cannot write Luke or Mara or Han or Leia for that matter.
Thier conversations just seemed so out of charachter. And then there were the idiotic thought processes of Mara really would she really not see the darkness surrounding her own nephew? Not to mention the relationship between L and M and Ben. That being said the hardest parts of this last bit of the Wow.
That being said the hardest parts of this last bit of the book: No wonder he resorted to crazed, desperate violence I'm the second chance.
The Jedi Council dropped the ball. And they paid for it. Jacen had accepted his Sith destiny, but now he understood not only that it had to happen, but why. Everything in his life had led to this point because Anakin Skywalker's destiny had been subverted and warped by well-meaning but blind Masters, sending him off on a tangent to do a flawed Palpatine's bidding instead of realizing his own full power.
I am more powerful than any of you. Though I will say that the most realistic moment of Han's was this quotation: I don't know who you are, but you aren't my son anymore. My Jacen would never do the kind of stuff you do. Get out.
I don't want to know any more. There are tons of gripes, but maybe its my dissatisfaction with the larger storyline: Omas, internment, secret police, Luke saying he 'isn't a student of history' when his whole life has been determined by the past.
I wasn't happy, but at the very least I've heard the series picks up with the next book.. So I lied, I did have a lot to say View 1 comment. Mar 24, William rated it liked it Shelves: Traviss is a hit and miss writer in my opinion, and this book lands somewhere in the middle.
I liked the Boba Fett scenes and situations as he hunted for both bounties and personal answers to personal questions concerning family, being Mandalore and his own life. However, it seems like Jacen's turn to the dark side is flying by without anyone willing to do anything. Clearly, his twin sister, Jaina, and uncle Luke can sense that he is turning, but do little more than offer words like: I know Jacen is very powerful, and able to conceal his emotions from his family, but it seems like this whole situation is a bit, pardon the pun, "Forced".
Sep 16, Alix rated it it was amazing. This book also talks about the forces of good and evil. There are a lot of different characters views and how it all plays out in the story line. The book is told in first person. In the future of time. The theme is mainly telling right from wrong, not letting people influence you to do wrong.
I would recommend this book to anybody that likes science fiction. Seventh grade and up would be able to read this series. If you like watching the Star Wars movies you will like these books. Most of the characters in this book are also in the movies. You will be able to identify with the characters. Mar 21, Matt Nielsen rated it really liked it. This is book 2 of the series and as you can probably guess by the cover it features Boba Fett very prominently throughout in his own storyline.
At first it seemed a little out of place, but by the end the author had me hooked on his story as much as Jacen's story. Basically Boba Fett is dying because of a genetic defect inherent in clones. So he goes in search of the original Kaminoan cloning doc to help him live. But at the same time Jacen's crackdown on dissenters and trouble-makers on Coruscan This is book 2 of the series and as you can probably guess by the cover it features Boba Fett very prominently throughout in his own storyline.
But at the same time Jacen's crackdown on dissenters and trouble-makers on Coruscant leads him to accidently kill a mandolorian bounty hunter during interrogation, not realizing it was Boba's daughter He just made another enemy he really doesn't want I really do love the audio book implementations for Star Wars novels.
It's lovely to hear all the music cues and background effects. This book wasn't amazing, though I very much enjoyed the Boba Fett portions. The stuff with Jacen feels very forced heh. Oh well. On to the next one! Mar 21, John rated it it was ok. Continuation of the LotF storyline, this inexplicably brings back Boba Fett - someone who has died more times than a redshirt on Star Trek - but there's a twist. He has a family.
That's right, sports fans - our favorite evil bounty hunter has an ex-wife, a daughter and a granddaughter.
But its supposedly OK - he's still moody and introspective. Nov 17, J. The turning point This book was a bittersweet read because of the choices of Jacen Solo. I felt like a bystander in the back of his mind watching his choices.
Learning about the humanity of Boba Fett was interesting, it was like seeing him without the helmet for the first time. Overall, this book was a good read just like the other books in the series. Feb 01, Kelly rated it really liked it Shelves: Fett was not one of my favorite characters but at least here is more interesting than previously thought.
The story and characterizations move right along. I was mightily peeved when my local bookstores did not have the next book in stock!
Apr 06, Aaron rated it really liked it. Travis does a great job tying the two halves together. Oct 07, Tim rated it liked it Recommends it for: Legacy of the Force Series readers. There were some good parts - just about anything with Boba Fett was good. But there was a lot of filler where I just got bored.
In all, not bad, but not great either. Mar 28, Benjamin Barnes rated it it was amazing. One of the books that got me likeing Star Wars Novels.
Jan 02, Jonathan C rated it really liked it. Het was een goed boek! Merci Romane! Feb 14, Pagan rated it liked it Shelves: This review may contain spoilers. I will never understand why the Legacy of the Force series has so many authors. In my opinion, and no disrespect to any of the authors work, but it can be jarring jumping from one author to another from book to book within the same series, especially all leading towards a major plot point. Despite that being a major downside of the series, that's not to di Rating: Despite that being a major downside of the series, that's not to discount any of the work of Bloodlines by Karen Traviss or its counterparts.
The character arc of Jacen Solo is still too slow for me. Despite a large shift to the darkside due to the brutal murder and torture of Boba Fett's daughter during an "interrogation", Jacen Solo ends Bloodlines in the same place that he ended in the first novel Betrayal. He has a lean towards the darkside, but by the end of the novel I feel he is yet again stuck in no mans land.
Neither sith nor jedi, and not really anything in between. I wish this story would develop faster. I also wish Jacen would make a decision, rather than pander to his new "Master" Lumiya - to take Ben Skywalker as his Sith Apprentice or to let him go and be protected from the darkside.
Again there is too much jumping from one to another, with nothing truly decided. I guess its a little frustrating after how easily manipulated he was by Lumiya to the darkside, which is hard for me to understand, two books later nothing has really happened in the grand scheme of either of their planning. One of the things that both worked against and for the novel was the inclusion of Boba Fett. I think the story worked really well as a seperate story, but nowhere during the novel did I feel it was part of the novel.
To elaborate, it felt like I was reading another novel, with the Jacen Solo and Boba Fett's daughter a bridging story between it and this novel. It just felt like an excuse to use Boba Fett, or bring him back into canon but it lacked the smooth finesse that made it feel like it was all part of the one novel.
Perhaps this goes back to the point of the shifting authors, and a chopping of writing styles. Also how did he survive the Pit of Sarlaac? I am curious how the distance between Jacen and his family has esculated this far, between the last series and the start of this series, especially his twin Jaina. After the events that occur in Bloodline , I wonder why there wasn't more of a push from Jaina to try and "reach out" to her twin brother.
The highlight of this novel was Ben Skywalker, and his journey as he is being forced by Jacen Solo to become an adult despite his age, and try to find his place in the world, muddling through the ways of the Jedi and the ways of the dark side that Jacen and Lumiya are trying to unknowingly manipulate him into embracing. That being said I'm excited for the next novel and hoping it picks up progress, especially between now and book five as I know what happens, I just never have actually had a chance to read the books , which should make for some action and "dark" scenes in the next two-three books.
Apr 10, Joseph rated it liked it Shelves: I read some the comments on this book and some of the backlash of Boba Fett being this old man and boo hoo on him, but I guess they told the story of him and his family and how it involved the Galactic Alliance and the Corellias. I didn't really have a problem with the Fett story as some others did.
Maybe it sets up him and the Manadores sorry for the spelling mistake later in the series or something. About the book though, which takes place soon after Betrayal the Corellias want to become inde I read some the comments on this book and some of the backlash of Boba Fett being this old man and boo hoo on him, but I guess they told the story of him and his family and how it involved the Galactic Alliance and the Corellias.
About the book though, which takes place soon after Betrayal the Corellias want to become independent of the GA. They feel like they are doing more than their share with money, weapons, soldiers, trades, ect. My problem is that I don't see the problem with that, but the GA won't have any of that. On the Corellia's side are Han, Leia and Wedge. On the GA side of things are the Jedi and everyone else not the Corellias.
There were a few fights, but not much. Jacen has become the head of some sort of secret police force that is rounding up terrorists on Consurant sorry for the spelling with his apprentice Ben.
Well Jacen is continuing his trip in being a Sith and thinking he is the only hope for a peaceful solution. Likes, well I am not sure Dislikes, the backstory of Boba Fett. It seem replayed a lot in the book and wasn't a huge fan of them talking about him as a clone as a kid.
How everyone believed Jacen was turning to the dark side, but not doing anything about it. How Luke and Mara are staying on the sidelines allowing their son Ben be right next to Jacen. I am come on seriously? Then Han and Leia seeing Jacen after he did something bad and basically was like what, really I am mad at you type of things and just walking away from him not trying to be a parent, even though he is like or something. Ummm Karen, I think when you become a parent you don't just stop being a parent if your kids get older Some of her writing style wasn't the best.
I know what your thinking Joe why did you give it 3 stars if there was more dislikes than likes Well good question It is more of a 2. Plus having Boba Fett on the cover moves it up to 3. Jun 18, Katrin von Martin rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the second installment of the nine-book Legacy of the Force series and was, in my view, better than the first book Betrayal.
Karen Traviss is a wonderful writer who knows the characters well and successfully adds her own elements to the plot as well as forwarding the ideas that have already been laid forth. However, as great as Traviss and her book were, there are still a few minor problems that, while do not prove to be too distracting from the novel itself, still linger in the back This is the second installment of the nine-book Legacy of the Force series and was, in my view, better than the first book Betrayal.
However, as great as Traviss and her book were, there are still a few minor problems that, while do not prove to be too distracting from the novel itself, still linger in the back of the reader's mind. Spoilers follow.
Most of Bloodlines is spent on character development and, in some cases, catching up with characters that have been largely absent from the more recent books. There aren't really a lot of hard-core action scenes or space battles, but Traviss writes the characters and their various inner struggles so well that the lack of action that is normally present in Star Wars novels is hardly noticed.
The book moves smoothly through its some pages, fully enveloping the reader in the story. A large part of the book is devoted to, as the cover suggests, Boba Fett and the Mandalorians. With the exception of a brief guest appearance in the final New Jedi Order novel The Unifying Force , neither our favourite bounty hunter nor the Mandalorians have been present in the recent novels.
Traviss is clearly an expert on both the Mandalorian culture even going as far as to create a language for them and the character of Boba Fett. In this book, we learn that Boba Fett, now over seventy years old, is dying from a seemingly incurable cause. He spends a good part of his time contemplating his mortality and his life, reflecting on the various things he regrets, one of which plays another significant role in the novel: In his search to discover both a possibly cure for his ailment and the fate of his wife and daughter, he teams up with Mirta Gev, his fellow Mandalorians, and Han Solo, and becomes caught up in the Galactic Alliance-Corellia civil war.
As a big fan of Boba Fett and the Mandalorians, I was pleased to see them play a large role in Bloodlines and hope that they will continue to have a place in the Legacy of the Force series. Fett's new attitude towards life and his more family-oriented personality took a bit of getting used to seeing as I was expecting the old, rough and uncaring, always ready for action Fett , but as the book progressed, his attitude seemed to fit his relatively new position in the galaxy.
It was nice to see that there's a chance that the entire plot of this new series won't be completely devoted to those with Force capabilities and that the average, non Force inclined beings will also play a part. However, as much as I enjoyed seeing Fett and his people again, I can't help but think that their insertion into the overall plot seems a bit random for lack of a better term.
I mean, most of this was Fett's personal mission that eventually linked with the big conflict It was certainly interesting, to be sure, but I get the feeling that this will dominate only Traviss's LotF books without really connecting to the rest of the series.
Nevertheless, it was great to see the largely absent Fett make an appearance. The other large storyline is that of Jacen Solo and Ben Skywalker.
Jacen continues to travel down the path to the Dark Side, now inserting himself in the government as leader of the Galactic Alliance Guard GAG for short , an elite force that specializes in raiding Corellian neighbourhoods, eliminating threats to the alliance in the form of the Corellians , and interrogating prisoners to an extreme, in Jacen's case. Ben is still his ever-willing apprentice much to his parents' chagrin and is constantly battling his conflicting feelings over Jacen's teachings and actions.
Traviss really wrote Ben well, taking him from a whiney teen whose only significance was being the son of Luke Skywalker to a young adult being forced to mature much faster than he wants to. His story was fascinating to read about and his inner struggles felt very realistic given what he was facing. He knows that what his cousin is doing is wrong on some level, but refuses to end his unofficial apprenticeship with Jacen because he feels he can still learn a lot from his cousin.
I'm sure this will continue to play a pivotal role in the series and I hope the other authors progress upon the character that Traviss has established.
Jacen, on the other hand, was almost a little over the top with his actions. It was nice and realistic to see him still battling internally to fulfill his role as the new Chosen One while, at the same time, being unable to sever his connections to his family and friends. However, some of his actions just seemed a bit much his interrogation of Ailyn or his decision to deport or imprison Corellians, for example , given what we've already seen of him in novels past.
His turn to the Dark Side is plausible, but his actions in doing so come off as a bit too fast and overdone. I fear this will only continue as the series progresses.
Han and Leia also make an appearance, but not a particularly large one. They continue to be forced to choose between loyalty to friends and in Leia's case, the Jedi Order and Han's loyalty too his home-planet. Most of their part is spent trying to live anonymously in Corellia and figuring out how they can remove Thracken Sal-Solo from his leading position in the Corellian government.
Later, they become the connector that ties Fett's story in with the overall plot. I have few complaints here. Both Hand and Leia were kept in character and were enjoyable to read about. Luke, Mara, Jaina, and Zekk all make minor appearances. Luke and Mara have become rather spineless, spending more time arguing amongst themselves than really doing anything which doesn't really bother me, as I'm not really a Mara fan.
We also don't get any big insight to why this is all happening
