Rogue One: Catalyst by James Luceno

 

Lauded Star Wars author James Luceno returns to pen an intense tale of ambition and betrayal that sets the stage for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

War is tearing the galaxy apart. For years the Republic and the Separatists have battled across the stars, each building more and more deadly technology in an attempt to win the war.

 

As a member of Chancellor Palpatine’s top secret Death Star project, Orson Krennic is determined to develop a superweapon before their enemies can. And an old friend of Krennic’s, the brilliant scientist Galen Erso, could be the key.

Galen’s energy-focused research has captured the attention of both Krennic and his foes, making the scientist a crucial pawn in the galactic conflict. But after Krennic rescues Galen, his wife, Lyra, and their young daughter, Jyn, from Separatist kidnappers, the Erso family is deeply in Krennic’s debt. Krennic then offers Galen an extraordinary opportunity: to continue his scientific studies with every resource put utterly at his disposal.

 

While Galen and Lyra believe that his energy research will be used purely in altruistic ways, Krennic has other plans that will finally make the Death Star a reality. Trapped in their benefactor’s tightening grasp, the Ersos must untangle Krennic’s web of deception to save themselves and the galaxy itself.

A Flame in the Wind of Death
A Flame in the Wind of Death (Five Star Mystery Series) - Ann Vanderlaan,Jen J. Danna

Good. I enjoyed it better than the first one.  This is listed as book #3 in the series but there's novella that came out between the 2 and frankly, I'm not sure it's worth the read. The transition between book 1 to this book is seamless and no other references are made, save for the murders in the first book.  

I enjoyed the plot, it moved along pretty well and the ending, although not a complete surprise, was still entertaining enough to be satisfying.  There wasn't much forensic-y type stuff going on, except for an autopsy or 2.

Overall, an enjoyable read and I look forward to reading the next.

Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice #15: The Death Of Hope
Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice #15: The Death Of Hope - Jude Watson This was really good. It was such a strange thing to see Qui-Gon so unlike himself. He was distraught and almost belligerent. It was like Obi-Wan from their earlier days as Master and Padawan. I felt so sad for him, but I was surprised that he lost his legendary cool. And now he's hell bent on revenge. Can't wait to see what happens next.

The one we've all been waiting for: Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls- sadly they're only in California... for now.

 

 

What if Disney Movies had Cops? Check the link to find out. Also- you ever wondered what would happen if Disney Villians were actually, y'know, SMART?

 

All Fantasy/RPG/Comics fans know it, but female armor really, really sucks. Just ask Red Sonja... and this lady.

You try building a Jedi/Sith-proof Doomsday device- see how you like it!

 

Finally, an absolutely beautiful and mesmerizing piece- The Art of the Buugengs

The Art of the BuugengsMust watch - prepare to be mesmerized."Flow": The Art of the Buugengs. Buugengs are ‘S-shaped’ objects that are spun and manipulated using a series of techniques to create an optical illusion known as the “visual kaleidoscope”.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gustavo-Ollitta/707233719324579?ref=bookmarks Posted by Mushroom Dreams on Wednesday, May 28, 2014
