Often books that are a larger part of an established cannon are shackled in their scope and packing very few surprises. Star Wars: Rebel Agent is no exception.

Pulled from the award-winning computer game series 'Dark Forces-Jedi Knight' this novel clarifies various gaps in Kyle Katarn's journey from Imperial Stormtrooper to Jedi Academy trainer. What compelled me to read it is that the first act of this novel deals primarily with Stormtrooper training and Stormtroopers in general.

i forgot this was based on a video game! it is enjoyable, but a bit contrived. i dont really like the dark jedi, they seem really dumb.
The version of this book I read was an audiobook adaptation of the graphic novel adaptation of the game.

It was an okay story, but somehow Kyle Katarn acquired a lightsaber and later that day became officially a Jedi Knight. I'm kind of confused about that.
i liked the action. even though it is a very low level book that i could have read at the age of 11 i still like the story. this is probably because i have played the sequel video game, Star Wars Jedi Knight II, Jedi Outcast. I think i have played that game for more hours than i have read school books. its a fun game. the book made me appreciate the minor details in the game that show the personalities of the characters.

This was a filler book, and as much as the first one was fluff, this was even more of the nice soft stuff...

It wasn't bad, though. Some parts were quite exciting, but it seemed to take a long time to do a lot of small tasks. Obviously the story was created with the third book in mind, so I'm excited to see Katarn learn how to control the force a little better.

The middle book in the series seemed to drag. I guess when your following a video game story line it's kind of hard to make it any better. I'm glad I read it won't be reading it again.

Now I don't have to play the Dark Forces games to know what happened in them.
