Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse

Recommended Posts

Drake

There can be no surrender.
There will be no mercy.
It’s not just the future of the galaxy at stake—
It’s the destiny of the Force.


In the stunning finale of the epic Fate of the Jedi series, Jedi and Sith face off—with Coruscant as their battlefield. For the Sith, it’s the chance to restore their dominance over the galaxy that forgot them for so long. For Abeloth, it’s a giant step in her quest to conquer all life everywhere. For Luke Skywalker, it’s a call to arms to eradicate the Sith and their monstrous new master once and for all.

In a planetwide strike, teams of Jedi Knights take the Sith infiltrators by swift and lethal surprise. But victory against the cunning and savage Abeloth, and the terrifying endgame she has planned, is anything but certain. And as Luke, Ben, Han, Leia, Jaina, Jag, and their allies close in, the devastating truth about the dark side incarnate will be exposed—and send shock waves through the Jedi Order, the galaxy, and the Force itself.

After reading the excerpt in the back of Ascension, I'm pretty excited about this. One would think that, after the flop that was the Dark Nest Trilogy, the Killiks would leave me feeling blah. However, seeing them prepare for war (at least, I hope it is) is exciting. The dynamic between them and Raynar was fun. It looks like he will have an even greater role in the finale. Good!

It does look interesting and it had me giggling a few times. I'm looking forward to it

Should be interesting, without a doubt. Though the teaser up there gives away some of the plotline of what happens to the Sith. As all those Sith are swept away quickly, it may give some insight of what happens to Vestara. It would be a failure on Denning's part if she dies early in the book. I just hope this finale by him is far better than in the LOTJ series. Remember how small it was and how rushed it felt?

I've heard rumors that this book even redeems LOTF. That's a lot to live up to.

That's true. And, thank you, I got my LOTR, LOTF, and FOTJs crossed, lol.

Loved this story as far as it answered a lot of questions. Still sort of anticlimactic, which Denning is prone to be. Pretty good, not the best. Curious where they go from here.

I seriously couldn't put it down. I stayed up twice on nights off until 3 or 4am reading it

Yeah I lost a decent amount of sleep too trying to see how it was all going to play out. Lets just say I enjoyed the destination more than I did the trip. The book ended good for me but it just never got me too worked up.

I dunno, I teared up when Barv died and when Leia and Allana weren't sure if Han was still alive and when they thought Leia got taken out by the Sith

Han has Plot Armor, so I was never too worried about him. Although I wasn't expecting him to come out literally without a scratch.

Just finished it, so I'm gonna have to wait until my mind gets over being blown. A wonderful end to the series.

Certainly an interesting conclusion to the series. It's a bit of a shame that they tied it into the plots of the Clone Wars travesty series. Now I'm going to have to watch the 3 episodes involving the Ones and the Mortis monolith. Sigh. Though, it may make for some interesting novels later involving the Ten Knights and their search for the dagger.

Not sure how I feel about the inclusion of Darth Krayt and teaming up with Luke to take down Abeloth. I was kind of hoping the Legacy comics were going to become apocrypha. Oh well.

I finally got my computer back up and running. I loved the book. I'm glad Vestara didn't die, though Denning was doing a darn good job of making me dislike her. I finished it last week, so nothing is fresh, but I thought it was anti-climactic, also. When Abeloth was done away with, I wasn't sure it was actually over. Oh, well, looking forward to the next books!

    • Star Wars - Resistance

      Just wondering if anyone watched (the premiere was Monday night on the Disney Channel; I haven't had a chance to see it yet myself) or is planning on watching?
      I know it's getting a lot of negative fan feedback because it's a "kids' show".  (Though it is strange it's on at 10 pm.) But come on, it's not like the rest of SW is all mature adult stuff.
      Or for the anime style. But I think it's kind of refreshing, to be honest, sets it apart from Clone Wars and Rebels.
       
      Anyway, here is the link to the StarWars.com page.
      And a couple trailers.
       
      I admit, when it was first announced, I was on the fence about it. Being a different animation style I'm used to. (Which is silly).
      But then I realized, heck, it's Star Wars, I know I'm gonna watch it anyways.
    • Boba: a Star Wars Story

      So it's been confirmed, per THR:
      https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-boba-fett-movie-is-happening-james-mangold-direct-1113273
       
      And a million fanboys lost their minds.
       
      Now I suppose it's speculation time... Time period? Casting Boba?  And will this be one of the other films Alden has signed on to play  Han in?
      Do you want to see what he was up to pre-ANH? Or perhaps, have Disney rescue him from the sarlacc ala the Legends/EU and do something post-ROTJ?
      Bring Temuera back?
       
       
      Dun dun dun...
    • The Weird and Wonderful names of Star Wars

      A promotional tie-in for Solo: A Star Wars Story has introduced us to some great new characters we can expect to see, including the fantastically monickered Therm Scissorpunch, a crustacean-like alien with huge lobster claws for hands.
      But despite being derided as the dumbest name in Star Wars, Therm Scissorpunch is actually quite in-keeping with tradition if you only look a little.

      First up is everybody's favourite death stick dealer: Elan Sleazebaggano frequented the clubs of Coruscant before he left to rethink his life in Attack of the Clones. Although later retconned to Sel’Sabagno, Sleazebaggano is typical of the tongue-in-cheek naming convention we often see with background characters in Star Wars.
      Did you ever hear the tragedy of Notluwiski Papanoida? This background character appears in Revenge of the Sith in the corridors of the theatre. The name Notluwiski isn't too bad until you realise who the actor is: it's a cameo by George Lucas.
      Sith names also seem to be chosen for their thinly veiled meanings. Darth Maul was trained to be a weapon, and was named after one. Sidious has an unavoidable similarity to the word “insidious”, which means to act in a subtle but harmful way; much like how Palpatine chips away at the old Republic. Even Plagueis has connotations of ill intent.

      In The Clone Wars animated series, Count Dooku takes a secret apprentice with the not too subtle name of Savage Opress. There are no prizes for guessing what his endgame is.
      It would be easy to see these seemingly ridiculous names as a feature of modern Star Wars movies, but they are present in the classic Star Wars trilogy too.

      Return of the Jedi is full of interesting characters, like the elephant-like Ephant Mon, Droopy McCool of the Max Reebo band, and let's not forget Jabba the Hutt’s jester Salacious B Crumb. And if individual characters aren't enough for you you could always speak to Admiral Akbar, a member of the aquatic Mon Calamari species.
      Perhaps Starkiller was a bit too on-the-nose for the boy who destroys the Death Star, but these other names do make you wonder why they bothered to change it to Skywalker!
       
      We eagerly await the release of Therm Scissorpunch: A Star Wars Story.
       
      In the meantime, Solo: A Star Wars Story debuts on 25 May 2018 in the US and 24 May in the UK.
       
    • Who Should Be Next?

      Well, with the news that Thrawn would be rejoining the Star Wars canon, I thought it might be fun for us to banter over who should be next from the EU/Legends to gain entrance into Star Wars canon, whether in film form or TV show form or other media form.
       
      I think you guys obviously know who I want. (But I find that one doubtful... depending on what and when we find out more about Luke's backstory post-ROTJ and pre-TFA).
      But what are some others?
