Instead of re-hashing everything that's led up to Vortex, Book #6 of the Fate of the Jedi series, I'll assume you know everything between Books #1 and #5. And assuming that you know what happens in these books, then you'll likely be able to guess what happens in Vortex. Yep.

Barvy Jedi. Ultimate evils loosed in the galaxy. A planet full of Sith. Exiled Luke Skywalker still on some kind of walkabout. Vestara & Ben still flirting?

Vortex is a standard, run-of-the-mill Star Wars EU book, and it reads just like a middle novel of a trilogy. Nothing major happens, apart from a lackluster and pointless death. And there is no resolution, only more exposition, more plots introduced. Still, call me a sucker, but I inexplicably am drawn to these pulp pieces. And as such, I still enjoyed the ride. It's just like watching a favorite movie over and over again. We're no longer surprised, but we still watch just because it's habit. And that's how I am with this FotJ series. I'll ride it out to the end.

All in all, not bad, but not great, either.
