Boba is give another assignment by Jabba the Hutt. He has to kill a separatist leader who is holed up in a fortress on a hostile planet. This is quite fun and action orientated. There's lots of fights as Boba tries to get to his target. It does end on a cliffhanger though. A good read.

This book is the fifth book in the Boba Fett spin off. This book, as far as structure is concerned is similar to the first book. There are 27 lines of text in 14 point font. The vocabulary in this book is a little more advanced than the first edition in the series. This book would be better if the students read it on their own and used it as a book report book.

leaves you hanging ready for next book these kids should be ready for bigger books so make it bigger
My son asked me to read this. He was so cute about it and asked me if he could ask me a question when I finished the book. He wanted to know what I would rate it! *lol* So, this is for TSM1. If I were an eight year-old boy, I would give it 4 stars!

Grownups don't need to read it, though. It won't entertain or amuse you. As an adult, I give it 1 star for the egregious foul of having a character dodge a light-based energy weapon. *shakes head* What are we teaching our kids, people???

Best book so far. Boba Fett is hired by Jabba to slay the dreader Separatist leader Wat Tambor and travels to the planet Xagobah. There, Boba discovers how impossible his task really is - Wat Tambor is protected very well and has all kind of nasty surprised for visitors.
Yet, even more sinister enemy is approaching...
The book is action-packed and because the character is older, everything is more matured and epic. The ending, however, is a very frustrating cliffhanger!
One of the better books so far in this series. It probably helped that they jumped two years in the future and we don't have as much of the unbelievably stupid Boba. Still, Hand seems to over enjoy putting Boba into impossible situations and just letting luck get him out again. It's less about Boba's skill and more about the fact that he can't die because we know he's still alive in the future. This is not how one becomes one of the greatest bounty hunters in the galaxy.

This book is about a young bounty hunteron a mission to capture the man who killed the kast bounty hunter. On this journy it turns into a pearilous journey that is do or die. With the action and page turning characteristic of this book it is recomended highly for anyone. So read "A New Threat" by Elizabeth Hand. (B2)
Boba Fett went into the middle of a battle and went into a temple, inside the temple was a guy. This guy was a shape shifter with a trap. This was a very exciting book. Boba Fett did not win, it's to be continued- we'll see what happens.
i think this would be a good book for a little kid but i found it hard to follow as an adult. the plot kinda went nowhere and there was only 5 pages with general grievous when on the bsck it akes it sem like he is a main character.
Boba goes up against his biggest bounty target yet. More characters from his past are included in the book. The book ends with a cliff-hanger making you want to read #6.
I don't approve of any storyline that tries to make Boba Fett anything less than the killer he was supposed to be in this universe. So this series was terrible.
I loved this one. It had thrilling things like the battle with Grievious.
