I think KJA has a strangely negative reputation. He's certainly a polarizing figure.

I come into this book having put down Children of the Jedi--Hambly is just a terrible Star Wars writer and it was a relief to encounter a solid KJA story. I feel like he unfortunately inherited Callista as a character and had to include her in some way. She's truly awful and doesn't belong.

Admiral Daala is an amazing character and definitely one of KJA's best creations. I love how she makes the empire more inclusive. She also isn't necessarily portrayed as an evil character but simply as an underrated imperial officer who is simply fighting for her country.

This book really feels like the sequel to the Jedi Academy trilogy with the unfortunate inclusion of Callista. If you appreciate it for what it is and like the Jedi Academy trilogy, I think you'll be able to like this one.

I started reading Star Wars: Darksaber with fingers crossed that it would be better than Star Wars: Children of the Jedi: Star Wars Series. I don't know if the Callista story was foisted upon Kevin Anderson or if he volunteered, but her story would be a difficult one to continue, given the background of her character. As I read "Darksaber," I felt as if Anderson did as much as he could to put Callista as far into the shadows as possible and still make it a Callista story. In fact, there was a section where I counted ten contiguous chapters that was devoid of any mention of Callista. When she took center stage, it was all about her trying to regain her powers. How she got to that state was dwelled upon only as much as necessary. Thank the Force, because we all know how believable that was. And because there is less Callista and more everything else, "Darksaber" was a much more interesting read. Kevin Anderson is adept at adopting the Star Wars style, much like some of my other favorite authors like Steve Perry, Timothy Zahn, Troy Denning. It just feels like Star Wars.

Luke's character takes on a supporting as he spends his whole time worried about getting Callista's powers back. I like him more when he's doing something other than that. He's not much of a Jedi Master or even Knight here. If you like a good Luke story, this isn't it.

Han and Leia get to do some diplomatic work. It's always fun to see Han do diplomatic work, because he's so uncomfortable doing it. Anderson does a great job at portraying that.

"Darksaber" does spend a good deal of time on Daala, the building of a new superweapon by Lemelisk, the Hutts, and Madine. I especially liked reading more about Daala, as I find her an intriguing character. She has a strong role in "Darksaber." If you like her character, this is a good book for you.

And the superweapon, it's not really what everyone thinks. Compared to other superweapons, this one may surprise you. It did me, and I liked how it was pulled off in this story.

The one thing I do take issue with is the Jedi Knights' use of the Force in a climactic event, which was much more power than they should ever be able to wield . . . even if they did work together . . . even if it does have the limitations that it did. Sorry I can't get more specific.

"Darksaber" is a refreshing followup to "Children of the Jedi," a terrific second act of the Callista trilogy. Too bad we have to read "Children of the Jedi" to get this one off the ground. If you've already read "Children of the Jedi," this is a worthy one to read. It's much better. I promise.

Happy reading. MTFBWY.

I really enjoyed this book. The author captured my attention from the start. The author did a great job of describing the situations in a concise method. I recommend this book to all Star Wars fans.

I liked the Jedi Academy a lot this feels like the first book with the actual return of the Jedi. The lack of a Sith Lord is notable, but that is probably why the conflict parts of the novel aren't huge. Mundane imperial remnants aren't much in comparison to the power of the Force....

I couldn't stand Barbara Hambly's "Children of the Jedi", and I am equally struggling through "Planet of Twilight". However, I was both surprised and relieved when reading this book, as KJA actually has some interesting material as far as jedi and space action goes. Yes, there is another recycled super weapon, and yes this combined with the whiny subplot of Callista is distracting and annoying, but I actually found more pros than cons. Those who didn't get on well with the Jedi Academy Trilogy (some problems there) will find that KJA handles the actions of the Jedi trainees rather well, and Dorsk 81 takes a more interesting role in this novel that I found refreshing from the whole Kyp Durron fiasco. Bevel Lemelisk is also somewhat of an interesting character, and provides some comic relief that is somehow NOT corny, but ironic and humorous. Maybe it was because "Children of the Jedi" was a mess of terribly handled EU material and BELOW terrible writing (fans, STAY AWAY unless you are hardcore EU!), but I honestly would have enjoyed this novel anyway, despite it's three-part, weak plot. I definitely recommend it, now I'm off to read Hambly's Planet of Twilight, yippee...

Darksaber is a good read. Not on the level of the iconic Thrawn Trilogy or Anderson's Jedi Academy Trilogy, but still an excellent read.

Usually, I tremendously enjoy Kevin J. Anderson's books. This, unfortunately, was not one of his better ones. I didn't like how the super weapon malfunctioned. I was looking forward fo a last minute save, like in A New Hope. There wasn't much of Leia, and that wasn't good. She's one of my favorite characters. Still, if you're looking for an okay Star Wars novel that you can read without gagging (unlike Splinter of the Mind's Eye) this is a worth-while book.
decent story...a hutt storyline was interesting....maybe that should be the only one...LOL
