Publisher's Summary

He is Boba Fett, the most feared and successful bounty hunter in the galaxy, and even the most hardened criminals tremble at his name. Now he faces the deadliest challenge of his infamous career: an all-out war against his most dangerous enemies.
As the Rebellion gathers force, Prince Xizor proposes a cunning plan to the Emperor and Darth Vader: smash the power of the Bounty Hunters Guild by turning its members against each other. Only the strongest and most ruthless will survive, and they can be used against the Rebellion. It's a job for the fiercely independent Boba Fett, who jumps at the chance to destroy his rivals. But Fett soon realizes the murderous factions, criminal conspiracies, and the evil at the Empire's dark heart. Boba Fett has always finished first. And in this game, anything less is death.

Filling in the Gaps

Although I am a big fan of Star Wars, I have not read all the books, comics etc. So there is alot of back story to discover. Boba Fett is one of the best characters. Even delivering a serious appearence in the Legacy of the Force series (which I highly recommend), The Bounty Hunter series is a fantastic addition to my library. Most of the story spread across the New Hope and Return of the Jedi timeline.

The character development, and narration of the book is fantastic.

Major let down

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I'm not sure.


Has Star Wars: The Bounty Hunter, Book 1: The Mandalorian Armor turned you off from other books in this genre?

No way.


What three words best describe Anthony Heald’s performance?

Ok. He's I no Marc Thompson or John Davis but he's ok.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really.


Any additional comments?

I was really excited to read this book and finally see what happened with Bobba for myself. Unfortunately the story really to me seemed to lack the detailed and exciting writing style I've come to expect from the reading of many Star wars novels before. I found myself wondering when something was going to happen and was completely shocked to reach the end only to still be waiting for something to happen. To short, poor writing, ok narrator, complete let down. Ill only read the next to in hope it gets better and I don't like leaving a story unfinished.
