A assessment of the ‘Tales of the Bounty Hunters’
After that catastrophe of a learn that was The Truce at Bakura I picked up Tales of the Bounty Hunters. I used to be quietly assured this is able to be a greater learn as a result of it was edited by Kevin J Anderson who I had come throughout as having written a narrative for the Halo franchise. And because it occurs the primary of the 5 tales was written by him.
The tales cleverly tie in with occasions in Empire and Jedi. The 5 tales work together with the second that Vader points the bounty for Solo. All of them give attention-grabbing insights into these hunters and present what makes them tick.
This is some temporary abstract assessment marks:
I additionally actually hated that Bossk’s ship was filled with soooo many sensors which allowed for a cat and mouse got here on board – that a part of the story was a uninteresting and gradual paced Tom and Jerry skit. The ending rounded off pretty properly, nonetheless. Once I realised the story was written by Kathy Dyers, all of it made sense.
Two scum bounty hunters make good. A narrative of two tales actually – crew of a wrecked Insurgent ship wrestle to outlive while a robotic involves grips together with his ’emotions’. An odd distinction however one which ties collectively fairly properly. In contrast to the Prize Pelt, this story wasn’t painted too broad in its scope making it crisp and concise as to how quick tales ought to be.
The Final One Standing: The Story of Boba Fett by Daniel Keys Moran
Probably a wasted likelihood to inform a extremely good Boba Fett story, it does give us an perception into an aged Fett who having survived the Sarlacc Pitt undertakes one final bounty to see him into retirement. An itchy Han Solo serves to show a worthy foe as soon as extra.
I like to recommend these quick tales for individuals who are eager to discover deeper into the Star Wars universe however keep in mind these things is no longer considered cannon. Check it out on Amazon.
