Star Wars:Coruscant Nights II: Street of Shadows September 15, 2008

Michael Reaves is among the best Star Wars Expanded Universe authors working today and Coruscant Nights II: Street of Shadows is among his best. This book is a new adventures – that continues the same character and timeline as the first Coruscant Nights.

Big difference this time around is Jax is trying to solve a murder – as is Captain Typho (remember him from Episodes I, II and III?) – Aurra Sing the most deadly bounty hunter of them all takes a swing a Jax –  and we’ve got a sexpot Zeltron in the mix too.

It’s a solid book that moves along well with all plotline converging at the end in typical Star Wars fashion. The only weak link might be the Typho storyline…somehow he figures out that Darth Sidious went to Mustafar and then he assumes that Vader was there too so he needs to go after Vader (which is so ridiculous a stretch..)

The sub-plot with Laranth wanting more from Jax was also kinda weak, though the plot dialoge with Dejah The Zeltron was all really solid.

All in all a fun and at times exciting jaunt through the Coruscant underground with a Jedi that has no lightsaber…

The next (and final book – Patterns of Force (Star Wars: Coruscant Nights III)) in the series should be interesting ..Vader is on the cover and the only question is whether or not Jax survives..
