    "I wanted to read a star wars book. There were too many to choose from though. This book was a good starting place though. I feel like I read one of the best."

    "Being an avid science fiction reader I was very impressed with the Star Wars books. Lately, I read "Star Wars - Lost Tribe of the Sith: The Collected Stories" and I couldn't put it down. It was so good that I ordered the e book version and paperback from Amazon books. The story is captivating, fast paced and exciting. You will enjoy it and I give it a two thumbs up!"

    "I found Into the Void: Star Wars Legends an entertaining read. A bit of a new perspective on the force and an interesting protagonist. I was pleased to see that a Kindle version is available."

    "I have read many Star Wars books and this is a nice addition to any collection. It is full of references to all things Star Wars from the creation of the series to several spin-off comics and books."

    "In need of a Star Wars fix, I figured the best way to do that is to read a Star Wars book. I ended up getting "Star Wars - Revan" and while this book is well written, it doesn't have that feel that other books and the movies capture. If you're looking for a good Star Wars book, I recommend looking elsewhere."

    "It may be heresy for some, but to be perfectly frank I think the Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn is the best trilogy in Star Wars, including the original movies. The tension, pacing, and twists are perfect, and Zahn's characterization is spot on."

    "Another entry into the Star Wars universe is Heir to the Jedi: Star Wars. Heir to the Jedi continues Luke Skywalkers adventures and introduces new characters, places and plots. Its aimed squarely at Star Wars fans but anyone can read it."

    "As a fan of Star Wars, I enjoy reading any books I can get my hands on. The Jedi Path is a fantastic book available in both physical and digital format. It shares knowledge on the history of the Jedi Order and teaches about lightsaber combat. It's a highly rated book that any Star Wars fan needs to check out."

    "There are a zillion Star Wars books out but not many are immensely popular and memorable. Star Wars - The Dark Lord Trilogy pieces together the whole Star Wars universe in a coherent and gripping set of book. Great reading even for non-SW fans."

    "Takin: Star Wars kindle edition is a great star wars book. I've seen every Star Wars movie and am very familiar with the plot line. One thing that is lacking with Star Wars is the background of other characters. Tarkin was always a character that I've wanted to get to know better. This book fulfills that need."

    "I was confused at first as to what this was. Fan fiction, authorized franchise novelizations. I mean those are two entirely different things! But if I wanted more Star Wars stories in general I suppose that the ratings would be a guide to more or less effective choices."

    "Any enjoyable Star Wars book but not overly gripping like past editions have been. Sure, most people will enjoy it, but others will be asking themselves "Is that all?""

    "Star Wars - The X-Wing series is a group of 10 books that take place in the Star Wars universe. They are some of the most popular Star Wars books off all time. The linked solution is for a set of ebooks instead of actual hard/paperback books. That gives you a little more flexibility on when and where you can enjoy this classic set. There is little doubt that this fits the topic."

    "I am a Star Wars nut. This book is awesome. Darth Sidious compiled the history of the Sith and put the into 6 books. I have read many of the Star Wars books and all have been good, including this one. If you wanted to know everything that you could know about Sith, then get this book."

    "Revenge of the Sith (Star Wars Episode III) is a fantastic part of the Star Wars story. It shows how Vader became Vader and is a must for fans and new readers alike."

    "Although this would be considered science fiction by genre classification, there is also a great story to be found in Path of Destruction(Star Wars: Darth Bane) written by Drew Karpyshyn. Karpyshyn is a pretty good storyteller and all in all I found the saga of Darth Bane to be a fairly entertaining read. I am not sure what I was expecting when I picked up this book; but I was definitely pleased with what I found."

    "This book focuses on the Dark Side of Star Wars characters. It provides an in depth look at major characters and is one of the most comprehensive books in the star wars series. At the same time this focuses entirely on one element of the star wars universe and as such cannot be considered the best book. This is a great book for Star Wars lovers who are familiar with and enjoy the Dark Side, but would not be great for a beginner getting interested in the Star Wars Series"

    "If you were a fan of KOTOR games then this is what you want to be reading! I stumbled upon this book while I was shopping and was so excited to give a it a read. I was able to find out what happens with Revan and the Exile. It was a great and easy read. I was able to move right through it and couldn't put this book down until I was finished. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for an easy and enjoyable book to read."

    "If you wanted to learn more about Darth Maul and the Star Wars expanded universe, I recommend skipping this book. There are many inconsistencies between the cinematic movies and the story line provided within. The book follows the same writing narrative as the other Star Wars - Legends books and for me, its a hard skip."

    "The first book in the Bounty Hunter Wars trilogy really does start things off right, setting up future developments surrounding Boba Fett's character and his own private war. It does a good job of depicting him as a relatable character, and I think this is a read anyone can enjoy."

    ""Darth Maul (Star Wars Episode 1: Journals)" might be a decent read for the hardcore Star Wars fans but it among the best books of this universe? No way. First of all, it is hard to tell whether it belongs to the continuity that Disney chose to pursue. And more than that, it is a very short story and even calling it a book is a long stretch."

    "Star Wars has always had a surpisingly vibrant and rich novel world, and this book is no exception. It's written by one of the authors of the graphic novels and it tracks Jabba, who is a largely unexplored character through his past which is an interesting take on things."

    "It's a good short story that paints a different picture of the villain we've all seen in the movies. Good value for the money if you're into the Star Wars world and love to continue all aspects of the series. Including the short story, only available via e-book, if you want a physical copy look elsewhere. But for the price it is a good value. I enjoyed the series, as it was quick read and painted a quick perspective for me."

    "Ahsoka (Star Wars) is one fo my daughter's favorite novels. She was so obsessed with it she couldn't put it down when she read it the first time. Until now, she has always put it in a special place in her collection of good reads."

    "What is not to like about Darth Vader, the story makes you want to read more and more about him. Good looking, nice story line and fits into the Canon of star wars and the Skywalker story nicely."

    "Boba Fett is one of the most fascinating 'minor' characters in entertainment history. Any works that add more background to Fett are worth a look. This book is a great dive into the bounty hunter's world."
