Never again with this series! If I ever, ever get the urge to re-read it again, somebody smack me in my face-ular area.

In all seriousness, I can’t tell if this book was genuinely better than the last one or not, because I sped-read most of it, focused only on the parts that caught my attention, and skipped large chunks of it that seemed stupid or boring. Anyway, it didn’t fill me with rage.

I’m not going to go into huge detail, or really any detail at all, in this review. I have already more than

Jumbled plot lines abruptly end, making this book feel like a messy Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

We open the final book in the Jedi Academy Trilogy with many open plot threads. Kyp Durron is on the run with the Sun Crusher, Han in pursuit to try to reel the boy back in. Chewbacca and Wedge head off to the Maw Cluster to take it over. Leia is appointed Chief of State, and the Jedi students must find a way to bring Luke back from his Force induced coma and defeat Dark Lord Exar Kun.

Star Wars fans might rate it four stars; everyone else probably two.

Shallow re-hash of classic elements from original movies. (Written before second set filmed.) The usual impossible, improbable and silly plot devices.

Flunks high school physics . . . again. After explaining why long hyperspace jumps are increasingly fatal, Anderson proceeds to have people make "direct" and Inner Galactic Core to Outer Core jumps with no casualties. The latter would be improbable to the point of certain death--o

Again, I have some problems with this book. The biggest of the three problems is that there is no definitive plot throughout the book. Stuff just keeps happening to the characters that isn't necessarily connected to anything else that happened. Perhaps one of the most annoying things for me in this book is the complete incompetency of every villian in this entire trilogy. They are all ridiculously dumb. A lot of the actions of the characters were stupid as well. The trilogy could be improved gre ...more

An okay finish to this trilogy. Kind of ho-hum after the first two. Also, it leaned a lot on cliches from the original movies - Han said, "don't quote me the odds" every other page it seemed.

As "Star Wars" books generally go, they are read for their plot and interesting conflicts much more than for artistic merit and technique. This installment is no different--not that that's a negative point. In order to read these, I have to keep this in mind.

I've read a few of Kevin J. Anderson's books in the past, including "Star Wars" and other sci-fi, and this isn't one of his best. I won't cover the plot here, since you can find that on the back cover and elsewhere. But for critical purposes

My problem with this series is that there were too many villains who were all too easily defeated. Who's the bad guy?

Is it the slave lord? Mmmmm. Not really?
The imperial Admiral and her 4 star destroyers? Oops! 3 Star Destroy... Nope, 2 Star De... Nope, Damn.
The spirit of the Lord of the Sith? Nope.
The imperial ambassador?
The prototype Death Star?
The new Sun Crusher super weapon?
This apprentice of Luke's? Who is turning to the dark side? Oops! Nope, he just died without a fight.

FIRST THOUGHTS: Who would have thought a Star Wars book would make me tear up? Not me! But that's exactly what happened with this one. All in all, a fitting conclusion, with a steady pace and intricately woven multiple plots!

This series suffered from a severe overabundance of enemies (and plotlines). It meant there were too many small climaxes in the third book. I also felt like the readers were being treated as if they couldn't remember a thing. I understand that it's probably important to review important plot points in subsequent books so that readers don't have to go back and reread before each new book comes out, but this was too, too much. Really the best example of the annoying side of this is that everyone h ...more

This may have been the worst Star Wars book I've read so far. The author, Kevin J. Anderson, has written some pretty good Science Fiction. But not this time. The story was contrived, the characters were not well developed (I didn't care about any of them), their interactions were juvenile; and what happens is easily predictable. It's like Anderson just through this story together on a whiteboard and then filled in the necessary dialogue. It was frustrating reading for me. I actually yelled at th ...more

This review is for all three books of the series:

A few years ago I picked up Timothy Zahn's two famous Star Wars series (The Thrawn Trilogy and The Hand of Thrawn Trilogy) which I read back in high school. It was a bit of a nostalgia trip, and so is this one. I remember liking some of the early Star Wars books, this being one of them, so I figured it was worth a reread too. However I'm afraid I was disappointed. In fact right from the first page I was unimpressed with the writing, the characters

The final entry in the Jedi Academy Trilogy, Champions of the Force tries, sometimes successfully, sometimes not, to recreate the epic, over-the-top feeling of Return of the Jedi, with fire-fights, Force powers, and space battles. All culminating in the restoration of the Jedi Order.

After the ending of the last book, Dark Apprentice, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker is comatose after one of his young disciples, Kyp Durron, went rogue, and under the influence of the spirit of the ancient Sith, Exar Kun

The climactic novel of Kevin J. Anderson's Jedi Academy Trilogy is probably the best of the series, but in the end it is something of a disappointment.

The book picks up where Dark Apprentice leaves off, namely with yet another super weapon on the loose, this time in the hands of a would-be Jedi with revenge on his mind, while Luke lays in a helpless trance on Yavin 4. Meanwhile, a plot is in motion to kidnap Leia and Han's third child (Anakin Solo), the Republic finally gets around to moving aga

Definitely the strongest book of this particular trilogy. For some of the characters, I think it took KJA that long to get some of the dialogue and characterization fine-tuned (although his gratuitous use of "never quote me the odds" with Han wore on me toward the end). Like some moments in the other two installments, in trying to show some of the political, real-life struggle that might happen, arguments and issues of supposedly supreme weight and consequence were settled too quickly with contr ...more

These were the first Star Wars novels I read, and as such, they have a special place in my heart. I can't really judge them objectively, but if I tried, I'd say they're not as technically impressive as Zahn's Thrawn trilogy, but they're still very entertaining.

In my opinion, Star Wars Champions Of The Force is the best of the trilogy. It ends very well and feels like Star Wars ought to.

Kevin J. Anderson has also done another series with his wife, Rebecca Moesta. The series is called Star Wars Young Jedi Knights, which is for young adults and is my favorite series of all the Star Wars books I've read.

I don't know why this book is so heavily criticized but it's one of my all time favorites (although it doesn't rank quite as high as Young Jedi Knights).

not bad(in the context of the three books)but I did find this a little lacking after book two which seemed to thunder along and suggested a fine action packed finish...instead I found it ended with a whimper.
The various plotlines possibly added to a disjointed feel especially as they started to wrap themselves up towards the end of the novel seemingly one after another.
This all seemed to neat and in some ways I found this distracting.
in truth this was an OK book which I think if condensed with t

Champions of the Force concludes Kevin J. Anderson's Jedi Academy Trilogy which began with Jedi Search and built up to the cliffhanger ending at the end of Dark Apprentice before delivering the payoff in this novel. Luke Skywalker lies comatose in the Jedi Academy hanging between life and death, the result of a battle with the spirit of Exar Kun, the Dark Lord whose spirit has corrupted Kyp Duron, Luke's most powerful student, and led him on the path to the Dark Side of the Force. Luke reaches o ...more

Champions of the Force by Kevin J. Anderson (KJA) is his third book is the Jedi Academy Trilogy. While I liked the first book, and the second was a decent read, this one was very "meh". I will try to stay fairly spoiler free, though not entirely.

First of all, as other people have speculated, KJA's use of villains is almost as if he didn't have an overarching plot, but instead wrote it on the go. So, without getting into much detail for the sake of not giving spoilers, after Dark Apprentice we ha

I will admit that there was a certain lack of enthusiasm as I embarked on this third book in the acclaimed trilogy. As I got to the halfway point, I had a pair of linked epiphanies. First was a realization of what makes the third book in Reaves' many several trilogies so weak, which was also at play here -- the books really betray the fact that the writers are operating under a severe deadline and trying to milk three books out of a two-book plot, specifically by the fact that the third book spe ...more

The Jedi Academy trilogy comes to a close with the most satisfying entry in the series by a long shot. Admittedly it's still a fairly average book but it is a few steps above the previous two just in the manner which the action is handled. We jump right into the story with Kyp Durron flying the sun crusher to Carida in the hopes of finding out what happened to his brother. By now his RAAAMPAAAAGE!!![/archer] is in full swing having blown Admiral Daala's fleet to tiny little pieces. What follows ...more

A very good conclusion to the Jedi Academy trilogy by Kevin Anderson, "Champions of the Force" finds Luke Skywalker down but not out. While his body is in a coma, his life-force is still strong, and he attempts to use the Force by telepathically connecting with his niece and nephew, Jacen and Jaina Solo, both of whom are strong in the Force.

Meanwhile, Leia and Admiral Akbar lead a contingent to stop an Imperial attack on planet Anoth, which is the secret location of Han and Leia's youngest son,

(This review may contain spoilers).

One thing that has always fascinated me is a person who does bad things and is pretty much a villain, but who then ends up redeeming his or herself and becoming a good person. It's partly because of the angst, but also partly because I find that, when it comes to a character, it makes them much more interesting.

That was definitely the case with Kyp Durron in this book. I found him an interesting, fascinating character who, along with Terpfen, made this book muc

I have to say Mr. Anderson you made the final book of your Trilogy the best of them that is for sure. This book starts off fast and does not let up through the whole journey. I have to say after being disappointed with book 2 I was not sure what to think of this one. But I was surprised and thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Finally the Luke Skywalker we all know and love showed up in this one. Not the weak character from the second one. I am very pleased with how all the old and new characters worked

This was a dull one. Kyp's story is ridiculous, the Falcon being traded back and forth was repetitive, why the Sun Crusher wasn't put in a black hole first is my question and another freaking Death Star is the laziest threat ever. I think I might be off the trilogies for a while and focus on the one shot novels. Except for the Darth Bane books. I still plan to read those.

Champions of the Force is book three of the Jedi Academy Trilogy by Kevin James Anderson. I found it decent for an ending to the trilogy, although I felt that the antagonist was defeated too early in the novel. This novel, in my opinion, would fall under the same fantasy category as the Crystal Star, and Courtship of Princess Leia. Although some elements were bizarre, the Prototype Death Star and the Imperial Military Academy saved the novel overall. As a whole, the trilogy is worth reading.
Amber
While not as entrancing as the Thrawn series, I still found myself needing to know what happens next. The biggest problem I have with the book is actually nothing against the book or author, but has to do with the use of the Force in the universe. Anderson is stuck trying to figure out how to write about some unexplained and nebulous thing works but none of the mechanics of the system were ever really worked out. It leaves talented writers stuck with phrases like "he used a Jedi calming exercise ...more
