Now know I have a review page but I don't like to review movies I didn't like so there won't be anything on Star Wars The Force Awakens, although I'll talk about it a bit on the next episode of The Uncanny Fans, so if you want a review check that out.
This post is about something related. I've been a life long EU fan. Give us Legends and all that good stuff. One book I've never read, I've avoided altogether is Crucible. At first I was just waiting for the paperback but by time that came out Disney had already made it clear they were no longer making any more books in this timeline. So this book became a goal. I would only read it when I've read all the other EU books.
Then my mom got it for me. So I thought what the hell? I started reading it. Before I knew it I was a 130 pages in, lost in the utter joy that is Star Wars and that is when the despair set in. This book is everything I love about the EU. All the characters, the adventure. I've been finding out about what happened to all the people I love over the past year.I guess it is the feeling people have been talking about with the new movie.
The weird thing is, as much as I want to finish it, I'm scared to. This is it. When I finish this book I'm done with Luke, Leia and Han. No more adventures, no more stories about Jania or Ben. This is the final chapter in the Star Wars Saga that I love so much and while I'm enjoying this book it is breaking my heart as well. I don't want it to end. I want more.
I want Sword of the Jedi!
