Troopers and somewhat less so with Red Harvest He id not acuit himself well with Star and somewhat less so with Red Harvest He id not acuit himself well with Star Maul LockdownAvoid like a starving wampa I would give Star Wars Maul Lockdown by Joe Schreiber about two and a half stars I A Beginner's Guide to Immortality: From Alchemy to Avatars decided to roundown This is the story of Darth Maul everyone s favorite underused Sith in an insidious space station prison known as Cog Hive Seven where the inmates are pitted against each other in violent battles that the galaxy gambles onI have not read the other Star Wars books by this authoras they seem to be about adding zombies to the Star Wars universe The Star Wars universe is in enough trouble from JJ Abrams I Love on the Rocks Men Women and Alcohol in Post World War II America didn t see the need for zombies as wellWhy is Maul in this prison Orders from Darth Sidious And for that same reason Maul must pretend to be a highly skilled mercenary and not a Force user His goal To find an elusive armsealer named Iram Radiue who is hiding and operating within the prisonSomost of the book is spent trying to Beths Stable Stolen by an Alien distract us from the fact that if Maul could use his powers his mission would probably be completed in no time at all We get a lot of Maul fighting in battles to theeath with various beasties and inmates for the pleasure of the galactic gamblers This is also how Jabba the Hutt gets involved As in he wants a piece of the action at Cog Hive Seven and is willing to Aliens Vs Predator do awful things to get itMeanwhile we re supposed to ignore the fact that Maul is gaining fame as a fighter all through the underworld and yet neither Darth Sidious aka kindly Senator Palpatine nor his master Darth Plagueis whose cat and mouse game with each other is interesting to me than most of the actions in the prison make any mention of the fact that their Sith apprentice is gaining notoriety And it makes the fact that the Jedi couldn t identify him from some kind ofatabase later on somewhat hard to believeThe search for Iram Radiue which involves Maul and several For Discrimination different characters in the prison takes up most of Maul s time and effort That is in betweeneath battles and gang wars and long Academic Writing, Real World Topics distance abuse from his master Anyway the uest to find Radiue is a long one A far too long one It s a path piled high with red herrings and even a twist straight out of Scooby Doo I would have gotten away with it if it wasn t for that meddling SithudeI can see the elevator pitch for this book going well Darth Maul trapped in a prison and fighting the scum of the universe Might even make a good video game But as a novel it falls flat for a number of reasonsHere s the main problem Darth Maul is a cipher We know very little about him It s hard to identify with a main character who Repressed Memories A Journey to Recovery from Sexual Abuse FiresideParkside Recovery Book doesn t really think too much or speak too much just acts Yes he s a tattooed badass Sith whoied way too soonwhile Jar Jar Binks lives onsigh but he never elevated much from the status of cool minion Meaning he has no real personality other than he likes to kill stuff and Experiments in a Jazz Aesthetic do his master s biddingSo the author has to fill the book with people we re supposed to care aboutthe sexyvicious warden and her weird tech genius brotherthe cast of uirky andor brutal inmatesthe innocent father and sonuo just trying to get byand the guest stars Sidious Plagueis Jabba Komari Vosa Plus African Literature 9 don t forget the giant icky worm that eats all the losers of the brutal fights And so onDarth Maul s uest to find Iram Radiue is so long and involved that it almost takes on an existential uality Almost Is Radiue real Is it all just a test Is Radiue even in the prison And on and on and on There is a huge list of suspects and no easy way to filter them out except when Maul kills them As a reader though it becomes a wearying intellectual exercise after a while By the time the mystery of Iram Radiue is solved it s hard to careSothenin the third actfallen Jedi Komari Vosa she s not a Sith just a psychopath shows up to try and make things interesting Itoes work after a fashion Komari Alien Conquest does add aefinite element of interest to the tale Yet bringing in a new character late in a novel with no real introduction is not the best idea Having her around earlier probably not possible though
GIVEN THE STRUCTURE OF THE STORY the structure of the story have made this a interesting tale And there s the ending What ending The book just sort of runs out of steam without much in the way of resolution I kept looking for another chapter but there wasn t one SighI give this book two stars two and a half in my head rounded Secrets of the TEAS® Exam Study Guide down because the writing isn t bad and the book is fun and engaging in some parts Yet the thinking behind the writing is seriously flawed andoesn t hold up to much scrutiny But if you re looking for a lot of action and not much in the way of plot okay there s a lot of plotjust not a lot of good plot and are a fan of Sith Rising Above The Influence: A True Story about Alcohol, Drugs, and Recovery doing Sith y things then Maul Lockdown may be for you.
