Cloak of Deception, Rogue Planet, Planet of Twilight, the Correllian series,Vector Prime, Dark Tide 1 and 2, and The Approaching Storm. These are my top ten list of SW books that sucked for me. big grin

hey this is your opinion...if you don't like Conquest...stick with it....

The Approaching Storm was much better than Rogue Planet...but it wasn't that interesting

I decided I liked it more than The Approaching Storm which I felt had the same basic flaw that plagued Rogue Planet. Two full-length novels attempting to demonstrate Anakin Skywalker's fall to the dark side when his true turning point did not happen until the middle of the last film. They just didn't work for me. big grin

I see....esp Rogue Planet...Anakin's about 14 in that or something crazy like that.....the Jedi Quest series is so much better suited for studying young Anakin

I don't read EU books all that much.

One literary let down is the fact that no one has said anything about me finishing my story.

Rogue Planet sucked big time and to me was a waste of paper. The Aprroaching Storm was a close second.

Both were about a younger pre-Clones Anakin being trained by Obi Wan. And yes Rex I would love to read your story!
