I've always been a sucker for spy stories and one set in the familiar Star Wars universe had some appeal.
This was a straight up action adventure similar to a James Bond movie. Our hero is deadly, capable, smart, funny, handsome and terrific with the ladies.
It was clever and fast-paced. I liked how Jahan Cross, our spy, bumps into Han Solo and Chewie at a critical time in the story.
He also has a droid assistant that I really wish existed because I want one.
Here we find Jahan Cross at a crossroads where he must choose between his duty as an agent of the empire and to do what is right.
I was less a fan of this one since in centered around politics and power. There are murders and political shenanigans that I find exceedingly dull. It's not a fault of the writer, it's a personal preference.
A young boy is caught in the middle and his life is threatened.
I found the first half of the story a slog but I enjoyed how it all came together. There was a nice touch of humor in the plot development that allowed me to enjoy the story as a whole.
