Rise Lord Vader
I just posted my review of Mathew Stover’s amazing Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith novel. Here’s a snippet:
As a fan of the Star Wars universe, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith was as perfect a novel as one could ask. More importantly, as a fan of great storytelling, Stover succeeded supremely, balancing the characters, storyline, internal/external struggles and maintaining the pace and dramatic tension throughout the entirety of the novel. In addition to the success of this novel on a storytelling level, Stover also succeed in adding perhaps the strongest addition to the literary canon of Star Wars. This novel may be considered a companion to the film, but after reading it, I would consider it required reading. Fans of Star Wars, or simply great, entertaining storytelling that questions our assumptions, should read this book. I can’t see how anybody would be disappointed.
George R.R. Martin posted another sample chapter from A Feast for Crows
