BadSamaritan Posted July 26, 2005 Share Posted July 26, 2005 Ok, I am only 150 pages into this book, and so far, have never been so confused by any Star Wars novel. Without giving anything away to those who have yet to start reading, Denning has opened a whole new can of worms in this book with his use of Jedi powers alone. Add in the fact it takes a few tries to understand what the author is trying to convey is some pages, and his rather unique writing style, this book has been a rather difficult read. Am I among many who are having difficulties, or do I need to lay off the use of illegal substances while I try to read the novel? SPOILER ALERT!!! SPOILER ALERT!!! Black text baby! Ok, for those of you that dont have the book yet, and want to knwo what the hell I am talking about, here is what has happned thus far. Jacen, Jaina, and all the other survivng members of the Myrkyr mission have been called to help the Nest in an apparent war againt the Chiss. Han, Leia, Mara, Han, and a few others decide to chase after them. The leader of the Nest is the always disliked Raynar, the spoiled jedi brat that was hijacked by the Dark jedi. They crash landed on the apparent homeworld of the Nest, and only Raynar survived. he used the force to convince the bugs to help him, and eventually, became part of their hive mind. He also taught them how to make themselves prosperous, much to the apparent annoyance of the Chiss. Apparenlty, the Killiks are not the Nest, but rather seem to be a higher power. They have already admitted to building Centerpoint Station, and it seems that only Force sensitive beings can see them. Or maybe beings outside of the hive mind. I dunno. Either way, they tried to kill Han, Leai, and co., but Raynar honestly knew nothing of it. Raynar, now he seems to have grown a lot since he vanshed. His force powers have exploded, so much that even Luke has problems fending off his will. Although it seems that the entire Nest, and everyone who joins it, has an enourmouse amoutn of willpower. Also, the survivng members of the Myrkyr mission have joined sides with the Nest, and are helping them fend off the Chiss, which seem to want to exterminate them at all costs. But it seems that are slowly becoming part of the hive mind, much like Raynar did. As for Denning going wild with force powers, Jacen has now mastered several aspects of the force, and had a decent understanding of the Current, and can seeming talk through time. Which could lead to the possibility that the Jedi can time travel. Does anyone else sence a problem with all this? And Im off to read some more. Along with some Asprinâ„¢. Yech. I once knew a great man. Nothing got to him, and he always smiled. May he forever rest in peace, knowing fully well that his freinds shall remember him.
