Force Heretic I - Remnant. Judicious application of the middle way shall make your blows more effective if you later take the way of force. Sean Williams and Shane Dix. With the New Republic shattered and a Yuuzhan Vong conquest looming, it is up to Luke, Leia, and their loved ones to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. There are three ways to defeat your enemy. The best, way is to have him destroy himself. From the middle way it is also possible to push your enemy onto the path of self-destruction. UUEG TCHING of Kitel Phard, Fifty-fourth Emperor of Atrisia.

Only 13 left in stock (more on the way). Sean Williams is the New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of more than seventy published short stories and thirty novels, including Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance. He is a judge for the Writers of the Future contest, which he won in 1993.

I guess I'll have to force myself to re-read it, if I'm going to endure their next books. Maybe this would have been better if only one author had worked on it, rather than the tag team of Williams and Dix. I noticed there were some parts that I really enjoyed, like the story about the slave transport in the prologue, and the Imperial Remnant. There were other parts, like the story about Nom Anor and the Shamed that weren't very interesting, nor were they plausible.

Any time a SW book gets less than a 4 average, I read a lot of reviews. SW fans WANT to love the books, so it’s hard to ignore. So I bought the abridged audiobook, which was very good. After finishing, I took a moment to flip through the first chapter and realized entire plots were omitted. Not just small plots, but an entire 2/3 of the book about crucial plot lines with main characters. I then read the book and it was REALLY good! Not the greatest, but very good. I’d have given it a 3.75 if possible.

(1) A large mission with Han, Leia, Tahiri, Jaina and Jag went unmentioned, which means;

2) the scenes with Jaina and Jag growing... eh-hem, closer were also ignored;

3) Nom Anor’s flight from the Vong that leads him into the depths of Coruscant, where he learns the story of Anakin defending the Shamed Ones has spread with religious fervor throughout the galaxy, and the Shamed Ones now believe the Jedi are their saviors.

4) BIGGEST AUDIOBOOK OMISSION: A HUGE mystery storyline with Tahiri - that is actually crucial for understanding her trajectory that will resonate in the future series (Legacy of the Force, Fate of the Jedi) - is deleted.

In "Remnant," the New Republic is no longer. It is now the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances. Our heroes travel the galaxy to recruit new members. Luke, Mara, Danni Quee, and Jacen head off to the Imperial Remnant with the ultimate goal of finding Zonama Sekot. Leia, Han, Jaina, Tahiri, and Jag meet with the Fia.

This was a difficult book for me to get into. At first, it appeared to be Tahiri's story. Something mysterious is happening to her regarding visions, fainting, and the Yuuzhan Vong. We don't know what it is, but there is foreboding. I think I should be on the edge of my seat wanting to know more, but I feel nothing. Maybe it's not the author's fault. Her story has never gripped me.

General Pallaeon makes an appearance. He has always been the most respectable Imperial. I was happy to see his return, but his performance was beyond believable. Barely out of a coma, he could still maintain command over the battle -- evaluating tactics, giving orders . . . all while fully immersed in a bacta tank!

Leia and Han decide on their course based on a mysterious message. They get captured but find their way out only to *leave their daughter in battle* in pursuit of an unidentified person based only on the word of Tahiri. They argue with the unidentified person only to agree to go where that person directed. Why, oh why? They would risk everyone and everything based on nothing but unverified unknowns for no apparent reason? They are seasoned rebels: a smuggler, a politician. Never have I seen them be so rash.

Aside from the plot points, there were scenes that were difficult to visualize. I actually read and re-read passages to make sure I didn't miss anything, but I couldn't tell if the characters were in a creature, behind the creature, exactly how the creatures were laid out, what the scenes looked like. There were times I could only get a general feel for what was happening.

Some things I liked: Jacen and Danni Quee finally let their guard down just a little. That is a romance I have been hoping for. Jag and Jaina get to see a little more of each other. Luke and Mara are together. They've always made a good team.

Nom Anor is on the run, discovering Shamed Ones in hiding who worship the Jedi. He becomes one of them, all the while scheming to regain his power. I am not a huge fan of Nom Anor, but this is an interesting subplot.

"Remnant" definitely feels like part of a trilogy. It would not stand on its own. Hopefully, the next two books will make it worth reading.

This was the first of the NJO series that I just couldn't finish. I kept putting the book down. The authors couldn't keep my attention. I guess I'll have to force myself to re-read it, if I'm going to endure their next books. Maybe this would have been better if only one author had worked on it, rather than the tag team of Williams and Dix.
I noticed there were some parts that I really enjoyed, like the story about the slave transport in the prologue, and the Imperial Remnant. There were other parts, like the story about Nom Anor and the Shamed that weren't very interesting, nor were they plausible. I just wish they were able to write the rest of the book with as much passion as they put into the prologue. Maybe this reflects the strength or weakness of the authors? Perhaps they each wrote different parts of the book, rather than collaborating on the entire novel?
I bought the book based on the teaser about Luke and Mara searching for Zonama Sekot. I wish I had opened to the last page to read that, even at the end of the book, Luke has not found the "force" planet. You get to read the next one or two or ten books to find out what happens.
Argh! I've followed the NJO series from the beginning. I don't mind waiting, but this is a new low. If you're going to tease us like this, at least let him find the planet, even if it takes another book to flesh out the story. I realize that maybe this isn't the author's fault. Perhaps I should get mad at the editor or publisher. Still, after 400 pages you expect that some part of the teaser will be resolved!!
I can understand stretching out the Vong story for 10 or 15 books, although my patience is starting to wear thin. However, trying to write 2-3 books about the subplot of Luke and the force planet, or Nom Anor and the Shamed Ones just won't work. There just isn't enough there to keep you entertained.
If the original trilogy had been done like this, "Star Wars: A New Hope" would have been written as a series of 10 books... the back cover would have a teaser about the destruction of the Death Star, and the last page would end with "Luke Skywalker turned off his targetting computer and trusted in the Force. Would he be able to destroy the Death Star? Whatever it took, he was going to do it. THE END"
