Review: Children of the Jedi

Children of the JediChildren of the Jedi by Barbara Hambly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first of the “Callista Trilogy” starts off pretty good, furthering the New Republic storyline back in 1995 shortly after the Thrawn trilogy. So this was all new stuff at the time. Newer books since then have become rather tired from copying this early material from Barbara Hambly, but she was first on the mark with many themes that held water for two decades of Star Wars writing. Hambly has also written a few Star Trek novels that were quite good, such as Crossroad.

Honestly, it’s the second novel in this trilogy I really adore:Darksaber by Kevin J. Anderson, which is considered #2 in the Callista Trilogy. So, looking forward to reading it now. Again!
