I just got caught up on all my book reading and I must say that Star Wars Legacy is quite impressive. While maybe not quite up to the standards of the classic Heir to the Empire series IMHO, Legacy is definitely doing it's part in adding substantial events to the expanded Star Wars Universe. I think it's difficult for any book not featuring characters from the Original Trilogy to hold it's own weight. But Legacy manages to pull it off with subtle hints and nods to the original series...(slight spoilers below) Skywalker descendants Ship names like the "Mynock" Character names like Darth "Krayt" An ever evolving Sith Element An imperial princess and an emperor with some noble qualities Wise Crackin Jedi "Good Guy" Bounty Hunters All these add up to a very riveting series. One where the golden rules of the original SWU are now just hearsay in SW LEGACY. Great read.
