Review: Star Wars The Old Republic Graphic Novels (Volumes 1-3)


Star Wars: The Old Republic: The Lost Suns by Bioware and LucasArts (Volume Three)
       After hundreds of years, the Sith Empire has returned to the galaxy determined to crush the Republic that sent them into exile. For young Sith Teneb Kel, this is his only chance to rise above his lowly beginnings as a slave and prove his worth to the Dark Council. Yet the mission for him is unexpected. He will not hunt Jedi, but rather a fellow Sith who has betrayed the Empire - the Emperor's apprentice!

Star Wars: The Old Republic: Threat of Peace by Bioware and LucasArts (Volume Two)  
      The Sith have gained control of the Outer Rim, but their efforts to penetrate the Core Worlds have so far been thwarted. Now, representatives from both sides attempt to negotiate a peace treaty - but deception by the Sith puts the Jedi in an unfortunate position...

Star Wars: The Old Republic: The Blood of the Empire by Bioware and LucasArts (Volume One)

      One of the Republic's elite spies, Theron Shan, embarks on an assignment to uncover dark secrets that could shatter the fragile treaty with the Sith Empire. Jedi Master Zho, once Theron's mentor, long thought lost in Sith territory, has returned to the Republic, quite  bit more peculiar than before he left - and he is the only one who can guide Theron in Sith space for his mission. The spy's hands are full with Zho, not to mention a troublesome thief and the evil lord who never should have let that old Jedi return to the Republic

Review: Being an avid (albeit lapsed due to life stuffs) player of SWTOR, when I found the second volume at B&N for $5, I eager bought it, then purchased the other two from Amazon. It was thrilling to read about characters from the stories in SWTOR. Many of the NPCs you interact with, or the lore you live in video game mention the characters in this graphic novel. To read more about them was like seeing an old friend. The stories had depth and trauma and humor, with the classic Star Wars flair. These were enjoyable, and worth reading.

  1. My son is a huge Star Wars fan, and I've enjoyed the movies, but somehow science fiction is hard for me to read. I do like Game of a thrones, though. ;)
