Nay, nay! Try thou not. But do thou or do thou not, For there is no “try.” ~Yoda, Act III, Scene 7 Apparently I was not the only one put off by the excessive use of the Chorus in Verily, A New Hope. Enough people complained that Doescher mentioned it in the acknowledgments of this book and talke...

Loved it!. I liked that Boba had a more of a voice in the book since he doesn't get to say all that much in the movie. I enjoyed this one as much the first in the series.

Yoda speaks in Haiku! Miss Piggy approves, oh master. It’s true that I didn’t enjoy this as much as the first. Perhaps it is because I wasn’t epeecting to enjoy the first, perhaps it is because, as Doescher notes, Empire is too much of a tragedy to turn into too much of a laugh rio...

Warning: I'm assuming everyone reading knows that Darth Vader killed Luke's father...wait... You can find my review of the first book here: Verily, A New Hope. As my husband just stated a moment ago, I love fusions. Steampunk is something I recognized immediately as fandom and I love music group...
