Pre-Read Throughts: And so the breadcrumbs on my "YA Star Wars" trail has led me here. A "Goosebumps-style" Star Wars series? Yes, please.

Though I confess to reading and being underwhelmed by Death Troopers, this series sounds right up my alley, as long as I go in with reasonable expectations.

Read/review to come.
While this was an interesting premise, and definitely readable (thought the prose is slightly less sophisticated than some of the other YA Star Wars I've been reading), this

Star Wars: Galaxy of Fear "Eaten Alive" is a great mystery of trust and honesty. In the book, it shows that even though siblings can be so annoyed of each other, they can just as easily help each other out in life. These brother and sister find out how useful it is to have trust in somebody by finding out that the the people of the planet they are on not only have a secret of their own but the planet does too. I recomend this book to any reader or person who likes something that has to do with g ...more

Ugh. I know this was made for kids. I also know that if the SW property is going to be grown, it needs to refresh the group of fans to include the young generation.
But this is not the way.
Just a bunch of useless “scary” stories about a planet that eats people, the dead rising, a virus that turns people into “blobs”. Even though they were quick reads, I couldn’t bring myself to read all 12 of these books. And here is where my mission fails – I thought I’d read every book I could get my hands on

Have you ever wondered if planets could eat every single person that stands on it? The genre of my book is science fiction I know this because this book has aliens and many other things that may exist in the future. My opinion on the book is that it was not very entertaining unlike the many other different books in the popular series,I believe this because of it being the first book in the series it isn't going to be as action packed as the other books in the series.

Rating: 3 Stars out of 5

The Galaxy of Fear books were around when I was little, and I remember always being too scared of the covers to read them, even though they were some of the only Star Wars-related books in the children's section of the library. Understandable, considering my cover of the book looked like this:

Garish, hilarious orange artwork, yes. But those creatures still look pretty freaky. The memories! Interestingly enough, this series came out a bit before the prequels, so it's kind

Basically a cash-grab for fans of Goosebumps and Star Wars. Not especially scary, to a grown up. But for ummmm...right, the kid i bought it for (wink, wink) maybe.

At any rate, for an adult, it's really silly, features some Mary Sueism, but on the whole I suppose it's fun for a kid to read.

For what it's worth, I consider this to be more canonical, and a lot more enjoyable than any i've read by Alan Dean Foster or Barbara Hambly.

Zak and Tash Aranda are siblings 1 year apart (Tash is the elder one). They're from Alderaan and were put under the care of their Uncle Hoole, a Shi'ido shapeshifter, after the Empire destroyed the planet. Hoole is a scientist who doesn't share much with his niece and nephew.

The three land on the planet D'vouren, which is a newly discovered planet even though it's on some busy hyperspace lanes. The planet lures sentients in as food.

I didn't mind the premise of the story nor even most of how it w

I tore through this book one night in a fit of insomnia. My favourite part was the space-snowboarding. I regret nothing!

Unfortunatly, I did not realize this was the first in what is basically a kids series that just happened to be set in the Star Wars universe until I started reading it. It wasnt horrible and was actually fairly well written but ended up not being what I was looking for. I know it sounds silly but I prefer Star Wars to be a little more grown up. Moving on.

This book set fear of the galaxy which hoole the shi'ido is gathering information about worlds. The book Star Wars the illustrated Star Wars universe by mcquirre and Anderson, talks of hoole the shi'ido being the author and how he's gathered the information about the worlds with his unique powers.
Nice tie in.

And so begins my quest to collect and read the final star wars series I don't own.

For being a 12 part series from the mid 90s when Star Wars books were in their infancy, this wasn't nearly as horrible as I expected.

This is the first Star Wars I ever remember reading, way back in third grade! A good blend of sci-fi, action, and creepiness, without being too scary for the young sci-fi fan.

I thought the book was just OK. I thought the relationship between the brother and sister was nice, but other than that, I was a little disappointed.

Got it to read with my daughter but was very dissappointed. I guess its suppose to be a scary version of star wars. It bombed with me!

Leo and I started reading this series. It is for older kids I think and a little ghoulsome.
