I recommended this to my little brother after I read it. He read the first four chapters and told me, "This is BORING!!" I was astonished at his reaction. First off, he had only read the first four chapters, and second, he hadn't read them in succession, but that's off the topic. I was also astonished because I flew through this book while on vacation in Missouri. I'm even ashamed to say that I wouldn't even speak to my dad's side of the family I only saw once a year until I finished it (which didn't take very long, I might add). It actually got my heart rate up from the normal level, which is hard to do in a book.

The story of Darth Maul's life before the Phantom Menace sheds a lot more light on the shadowy Sith character. It also explains the corruption in the Republic with Chancellor Velorum (forgive me if I butchered the spelling) and developed a romantic attraction between Lorn Pavan (non-jedi) and Darsha Assant (jedi). It explored the little-seen parts of Coruscant and parts of the Star Wars world not seen in the movies.
All in all, a very fast-paced, heart-racing novel that I would gladly recommend to anyone interested in Star Wars. I salute you, Micheal Reaves!

P.S. When my brother finished it, he probably would've also declared the last two sentences in this review too.
