[ The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance ] [] Fatal Alliance
By Sean Williams
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

The story itself is also really interesting, even if most of it is predictable [...] it still worked well enough within this old universe [...] handling so many main characters without singling anyone out as the main protagonist is still a tremendous achievement. But this has one consequence, the book is quite long for a Star Wars book, clocking in at more than 500 pages, not that I am complaining, I liked most of it, but the build up and the finale are my favorite parts....read full review

truly forgetable piece of fiction [...] characters are bland and the story is just barely interesting [...] art is still pure ugly, the colors are unattractive [...] best art so far in this series [...] a shame really...read full review

there was a good story at the heart of this abysmal abomination of wasted time, but the horrific art and the highly incompetent writing doomed this to be one of the worst pieces of so-called art I have had ever the "pleasure" of reading...read full review

[ Deceived ] [] Deceived
By Paul S. Kemp
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

no means a perfect Star Wars book [...] but it is one hell of a exciting book [...] Kemp surely knows how to write captivating [...] love his action scenes [...] He is so deeply rooted in the now, the present of a situation, that you yourself - while reading it - feel almost present [...] a very good read, especially for those who like this period...read full review

a mixed bag of satisfying and average [...] never liked Cylo and his gang [...] mere two-dimensional vilains with no real power to truly face off against our dark protagonist [...] All in all a good enough read...read full review

epic, bombastic and mad [...] an epic showdown, we got rid of some of the weaker characters, while others are set on new and unknown paths [...] a delight to witness Vader rather effortlessly slaughtering his way through the story [...] it works [...] truly fun...read full review

truly loved this book [...] best depiction of Vader outside of the movies [...] first half of this book is pretty much perfect [...] second half is still great but curious [...] relationships shared between Vader and others is interesting yet surprisingly civil, almost casual [...] dialogue and the art are an awesome constant [...] curious how this story will progress...read full review

Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

the book is a delight [...] story draws you immediately in and won’t let go till the very end [...] only problem with this book is that this one is a bit too full of special events and over the top successes [...] Luke encounters and manages to survive not one, but TWO of this time periods biggest baddies [...] second encounter could really have waited a few more issues [...] very divisive is the reveal of the identity of one dark skinned female at the end [...] so much better than that Brian Wood series...read full review

not as bad as its reputation [...] at best a very mediocre book [...] it's first short coming is the obvious first person narration [...] only managed to drag me out of the experience and never for once did I feel like I actually was inside the head and thoughts of Luke [...] I was hoping for some twist, or plot development that would require such a narrative, justify it [...] we get to know how our narrator deals with being untrained in the force... and to some degree... girls...read full review
