Del Rey's Wav 6 "Essential Legends" Books Revealed....and you should turn your eyes away!
Del Rey's latest edition of Essential Collections books leaked and the results have me wondering why they're scrapping the bottom of the barrel?
Give it, I'm in the minority on this first choice.
Though I'm not a big fan of the series, most fans were which shouldn't surprise me that this series is getting another reprint. I'd be lying if I said I didn't find it amusing that the author herself has sworn to never return to the series again and is done with Star Wars.
Congratulation Ms Travis, you're newly adjusted royalty checks should be coming in the mail soon, much to your displeasure.
My stomach churns at the fact they'll be more copies of this atrocious book out on retail in the near future. This is one of the worst representations of the EU out there (in my opinion)
I pray no one new begins their exploration of the EU with this book. They'll instantly hate the series as a whole. Tim Lebbon's style is not only hard to follow but is extremely dull. I read his Firefly novel a few years ago and it was just as bad as this one here.
The man hasn't got it. Plain and simple. I can think of 40 books deserve a reprint more than this atrocity.
The only saving grace of this entire wave. It's an EXCELLNT novel. Getting to reread it for the 2nd time recently I've grown to greatly appreciate it more.
What a fantastic read for fans who've largely forgotten this excellent book!
What's in store for Wave 7? I have no idea. Frankly I was surprised not to see Allston's X-Wing series get the nod, but as they say in the Mets dugout every season "There's always next year"
