This book has good vocabulary and is pretty good as far as Star Wars goes. I hate having to read aloud all of those wierd names, but there are not too many in this one. We've read the first two and are working on the fourth, Hunted. My boys sit still for hours on end as long as I'm reading it, so that's something in its favor. ;)

Boba is trying to get his money in a deadly banking planet. I really hope that he'll get deeper into action, so far too kiddy, although fast-flowing and readable. Novels by Jude Watson are better.

Background: Maze of Deception was written by Elizabeth Hand and published in April 2003. Hand wrote the 3rd through 6th books in the Boba Fett series (taking over for Terry Bisson). These are her only Star Wars books, though she has written a number of non-Star Wars novels, short stories, comics, and novelizations.

Maze of Deception takes place right after Crossfire (my review), 22 years before the battle of Yavin. The young Boba Fett is the main character, along w
With the help of Aurra Sing, Boba is on the way to retrieve the money Jango left to him. He doesn't know where he's going, and he doesn't trust Sing well enough to believe that she'll treat him well once they arrive, but what choice does he have? He's eleven years old, and well on his way to being the bounty hunter he'll become, but he still doesn't have the clout that an adult has, as he learns once they land.

I said at the end of my review of Crossfire that I was looking forward to reading some

A story of continued struggle for survival, Maze of Deception, by Elizabeth Hand is so awe inspiring. Boba Fett is a heart broken kid after the death of his father. He struggles to gain even the barest of credits to keep living and fighting. In the care of the tall, white, slender Aurra Sing, they search for his fathers fortune. Once he realizes Aurra will kill him after she finds his fathers legacy, he escapes to find it on his own. He wheres his father's Mandalorian helmet to remember him. Thi ...more

Hodnotím 1. až 4. díl série.
Hlavní hrdina Boba Fett je syn a jediný přesný klon svého otce Jango Fetta, který byl pravděpodobně nejlepším nájemným lovcem odměn ze všech.
Ale každý lovec, se může stát kořistí a právě Jango Fett se stane lovnou kořistí pro rytíře Jedi, kteří mu vyčítají jen takovou drobnost, jakou je "stvoření" a výcvik armády klonů, které můžete znát jako Stormtroopery. (bílá zbroj, už víte o koho jde, ne?)
Celé pozadí příběhu je složitější, ale knihy své čtenáře tímto nezatěžuj

Star Wars: Boba Fett #3: Maze of Deception, by Elizabeth Hand

"Maze of Deception" is the third book in a six book series on the life of young Boba Fett. In this installment, Boba and Aurra Sing journey to Aargau, the banking planet of the galaxy. Similar to Coruscant, Aargau is a layered planet; the lowest levels are the most dangerous, full of the scum of the galaxy.

Aurra Sing, a very dangerous bounty hunter, takes Boba to Aargau to get half of Jango Fett's fortune. Boba, naturally, isn't keen o

You'll drive yourself a bit insane trying to pronounce the names and races out loud, but the book was never boring and kept flowing quickly. I've never been big on the Boba Fett character, but my interest in Star Wars has been renewed by my son getting old enough to get into the franchise as well as the new movie coming out in December. When I saw this book on a shelf at my mother's house I decided to give it a shot. It must have belonged to my nephew when he was younger. The writing is more for ...more

Sing brings Boba to Aargau, where the International Banking Clan has a galactic bank. Sing plans on forcing Boba to withdraw his inheritance, and for her to "take half the money" - as if she'd settle for half.
Boba gets away from her multiple times, though finds trouble on his own.

I feel bad for him. It's very easy to remember that he's a kid, between 10 & 11 years old, and that he's learning the state of the galaxy for the first time. He's not fully naive but forgets things, just as a child

Suitable for children aged 8 plus or those who have seen the films.
Boba has been kidnapped by Aeria so she can get Jango's money, she claims she will split it with him. They go to a banking planet to get the money.

This is quite fun, with Boba constantly trying to avoid his capture and trying to find Jabba the Hutt. A good read.

i kind of like this book because i saw the movie star wars epsiode 2 and 3 and so i got kind of interested in it. i was reading this book and it was filled with all sorts of new technology and new things in it so it kind of confused me but after all i liked it.

I really enjoyed Jude Watson's Jedi Apprentice series. It is intended for children but can still be enjoyed by adults. This is unfortunately both for children and childish - with zero depth.

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.

The characters had many different background stories. This whole series is about the life of Boba Fett but you have to learn about the others. The story had many twists.

I've read these with my boys. I find them very exciting, becoming more of a star wars fan with each book.

I think the author made Boba way too dumb in this one. He never seems to learn his lesson. This is not the son of Jango Fett.
