This marks the second annual give away of the Legends Library Card and the three year anniversary of the Legends Library Podcast. Luke and Randy are joined by this year’s winner, Cole Peel, from Alba, Texas. He chose the book Death Star to review, written by Michael Reaves and Steve Perry. Spanning a period of the three-year construction of the Death Star we learn of the lives of a band of characters that find themselves stuck on a super-weapon. This ragtag bunch of friends will do what they can to escape before the Rebellion attacks. Some make it to safety some are less fortunate. Tune in to find who escapes to fight another day.
The circle is complete!!!!! At least the New Jedi Order is complete. Luke and Randy close out the final chapter of the NJO this month. The Final Prophecy and The Unifying Force are the focus this episode, bringing the over 20 book series to an end. Jacen, Luke, and Zonama Sekot take on the last of the Yuuzhan Vong on Coruscant. In what seemed to be an endless battle only the “unifying force” could make the difference. They also announce the winner of this year’s Legends Library Card. Congrats to Colemandowraith, this years winner! Next book…….Death Star.
The penultimate New Jedi Order episode!! With only two more sections of the NJO left, Luke and Randy take on The Force Heretic Trilogy, written by Sean Williams and Shane Dix. They also bring discussion of Truce at Bakura and Rogue Planet into the mix as it relates to this trilogy.
