Stackpole, one of the acclaimed masters of imaginative fiction, comes a stirring new tale set in the Star Wars universe, the story of Corran Horn, a heroic X-wing pilot who faces the greatest challenge of his life: trying to come to terms with his Jedi heritage and learning to use the Force-. without succumbing to the dark side. Corran Horn was an officer in the Corellian Security Force before casting his lot with the New Republic. As the grandson of a legendary Jedi hero, he has latent Force powers that have yet to be developed.

JOHNSON Star Wars is on the public stage in a way that nothing else is. But even on a big scary thing like this, every single one of these people was excited to step outside their comfort zones, to go to places that were really interesting but not necessarily easy. HAMILL Like the top of Skellig Michael.

ONSLAUGHT pits the battle-tested heroes of the past-Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia. Even the Jedi feel the strain, as rogue elements rebel against Luke's leadership

The Vong's dogmatic anti-technology crusade is never explored to even the slightest satisfaction, even when a couple of Vong serve as primary point-of-view characters.

Read by Anthony Heald2 Cassettes, 3 HoursThe stunning sequel to Dark Tide: Onslaught-by the New York Times bestselling author of the Star Wars X-Wing seriesThe alien Yuuzhan Vong have launched an attack on the worlds of the Outer Rim. They are merciless, without regard for life--and they stand utterly outside the Force. In the face of this impervious foe, the Jedi-once the greatest guardians of peace in the galaxy-have been rendered helpless...and their solidarity has begun to unravel.While Luke struggles to keep the Jedi together, Knights Jacen Solo and Corran Horn start off on a reconnaissance mission to the planet Garqi, an occupied world.  There, at last, they uncover a secret that might be used to undermine the enemy--if only they can stay alive long enough to use it!
  • While the characters continue to lecture each other (and subsequently, the reader), "Ruin's" storyline is solid. The New Republic gains an ally, while the Yuuzhan Vong leadership is enmeshed in a power struggle. More continue to die as the enemies study each others' weaknesses and become more evenly matched.

    Corran Horn takes center stage amongst the Jedi. While he was never much my favorite character in the "X-Wing Series," he has matured into a respectable hero.

    Mara has a lesser role here, but she also seems to be much less sick. Amazingly, she is now able to fight without being short of breath.

    Leia makes and appearance early on, but her role is limited. The Solo children are supporting characters. Han is not in the picture at all.

    Luke is still a cool Jedi, but he is more the Master than an active warrior.

    The one thing that did pull me out of the book is the grief suffered by the characters upon the loss of friends. The friendships were never explored very deeply, so the intensity of mourning did not feel genuine.

    Still, this was a good story, definitely worth reading.

  • In between Dark Tide I and II I reread I, Jedi, another Stackpole Star Wars novel, and wondered what happened to the author who wrote that book. Dark Tide I, in my opinion, was an incomplete waste of my time. Stackpole's writing style felt uncomfortable. I, Jedi was a very good book and even though I didn't expect the same from Dark Tide II, it is part of a series I decided to read. I was pleasantly surprised. This is an excellent book with a few small plot holes and, unfortunately, the death of one of Stackpole's own characters. It was good to see a two sided book again, the first Dark Tide didn't show anything from the Vong side and I believe this was one of it's major flaws. The Vong characters were well fleshed out and even when one of them died I felt a bit of remorse for what he could've done with him, but it was necessary and I look forward to how the other main Vong character will grow. Overall this feels like what I would expect from Stackpole and am glad to see the author behind I, Jedi return. Let's hope the rest of the series can keep me interested. Honestly it worries me a bit that not many of these were published in hard cover but we'll see what happens.

  • I’m enjoying the Vong war. It isn’t my favorite of the Expanded Universe, but still a great read. Ironically I’m getting into the EU while Disney has changed courses.

  • I haven't read a StarWars novel I haven't liked yet and this is no exception. However, this book did seem to have been hurried. They spent all this time looking for something to use against the Vong, when they found it, they didn't use it. The older characters are getting lost. Can you see Han Solo drowning in self-pitty. I don't think so. Leia setting back while her children are knee deep into life and death. Could we please find the cure for Mara? All in all this was a great book, I couldn't put it down. As with any book I read, I would always like to do things a little different. To all StarWars fans this is a must read, but read the other 2 books of the TNJO first, it will make it a lot easier to follow.

  • I really don't like Stackpole's writing. I just feel like he is trying to insert his own character into the pantheon of major Star Wars heroes in a way that feels far too forced. This is Stackpole's next "X-Wing" novel merely under the guise of the New Jedi Order. This is just another book about Corran Horn, a character I really don't care for.

    This book is better than Dark Tide I in that it continues Vector Prime's Yuuzhan Vong POV, but Stackpole is not as good as R A Salvatore when it comes to portraying the Vong.

    Stackpole struggles when it comes to worldbuilding. His descriptions are often cluttered and lackluster, such that it is always hard to picture what he is describing. This does not apply to combat though, which Stackpole handles capably, albeit without the finesse of other authors.

    Another annoying habit of Stackpole's is his desire to cement the Bantam-era stories as fact within these books. I personally don't like much of the Bantam-era stuff, particularly from the Jedi Academy trilogy, but Stackpole insists on reminding us of the Suncrusher, the Eye of Palpatine, Kyp Durron's ridiculous destruction of an entire system--whereas R A Salvatore wisely ignored this stuff and allowed Vector Prime to be self-contained. Dark Tide assumes you've read all of the Thrawn stuff, including Hand of Thrawn, it assumes you've read all of Stackpole's X-wing stuff as well as I, Jedi, it assumes you've read the Jedi Academy trilogy, and also the Callista trilogy, lots of which are terrible books in my opinion and which I don't want to have to count as being part of my "head-canon."

    But I digress.

    I don't believe Stackpole was the right choice for these books. He clearly is more interested in continuing his own little world that he built in the X-wing novels and which revolves around Corran Horn than building an epic story like the invasion of the Yuuzahn Vong.

  • The yuuzhan vong story line is intriguing. Invaders from outside the galaxy that are invisible to the force. A worthy challenge for the fledgling Jedi order.

    This story continues the tale in a riveting manner. Good character development of the Skywalker and Solo kids.

    A great read.

  • In the series Dark Tide:I Onslaught and Dark Tide:II Ruin; Stackpole did a fantastic job with character developement. They were the same Luke, Leia, and Mara that all true SW fans love. I especially liked the way the author tied these books into the other SW books and movies. The developement of the Solo children and other Jedi Knights, has me wanting more. I hope Michael Stackpole does more SW novels!
