Publisher's Summary

Kyle Katarn has joined the ranks of legendary Star Wars heroes such as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. A timeless adventure of revenge and honor, the trilogy is set in a shimmering universe of sound that only digital technology can fully capture.
In Soldier for the Empire, Kyle Katarn, having just graduated from the Imperial Military Academy, learns of his father's murder. On his way home, he meets a Rebel agent, learns the ugly truth about the way in which his father died, and swears revenge.
In Rebel Agent, Kyle learns more about what his father found in the Valley of the Jedi that ultimately led to his death. Kyle finally earns his Knighthood as a Jedi, and the stage is set for him to avenge his father's death and stop the Dark Jedi from taking control of the source of energy that lies underneath the Valley.
Jedi Knight, the exciting conclusion to the series, has Jerec, the Dark Jedi, bringing his forces to Ruusan in the final part of his search for the Valley of the Jedi. Destroying anything that gets in his way, Jerec reaches the Valley just ahead of Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors. With the help of the indigenous inhabitants of the planet, Kyle and Jan confront Jerec's Jedi and prepare for a final showdown with Jerec. If Jerec defeats Kyle, the unlimited power contained in the Valley will enable him to rule the galaxy. Are Kyle's untrained Jedi powers enough to defeat Jerec?

Almost good story

I enjoyed the stories to a point, but felt that the writing could have been just a little better. Repeating words in multiple sentences made it feel as if the writer did not have a broad vocabulary. The character also progressed very quickly with very little training which made no sense. "Hey look, I can do this and that, I must be a Jedi now." The character did not even seem to know what a Jedi really was but magically became one. As a Star Wars fan, this is still a must as it helps explain some events durring the fall of the empire.

Painful

Technical production is good but the story was painful to sit through. Good expanded universe material for the Star Wars fan, but the writing was bad and the stories felt rushed and contrived. I remember playing the computer games these stories were based on, and the games were much more rewarding. I don't expect Star Wars books to be great literature, but a lightweight way to pass the time in the car. This one just had me wishing I'd get to work faster. I know William Deitz can write pretty well, so I suspect the problem here lies in the translation or abridgement to audiobook.
