Ich habe jetzt neulich Legion: Skin Deep von Brandon Sanderson gelesen. Schöne Geschichte, der erste Teil (Legion) hat mir allerdings besser gefallen.

Ist das “Urban Fantasy”, Science-Fiction oder ein Abenteuerroman? Bis auf die seltsame “Geisteskrankheit” des Protagonisten könnte es jedenfalls beinahe in der realen Welt spielen. Sehr zu empfehlen.

Dark Force Rising

Sunday, September 14th, 2014

During my last vacation I read Dark Force Rising on my kindle. This is the second part of the original Thrawn trilogy from Timothy Zahn. In the early nineties I read the first part Heir to the Empire and found it really great. Back in those days books were still printed on paper. :)


At that time it was also difficult to get science fiction books in the original version in Germany, since most bookstores had only small foreign language books sections (filled with classics from penguin books and the like). I therefore read it in the German translation. The second part was however only published in German many years later (1998).


Even though I really liked the first part, I meanwhile somehow forgot about it and didn’t buy the follow-up. Now I saw it on kindle. Strangely enough it is not available for purchase in English. My speculation (and hope) is that this trilogy really is the basis for the new films and for that reason they are being held back until after the release of the movies (when revised and adapted versions of the books will be published).



Anyway, those who wish to read the trilogy now, can still buy second hand paperback versions, or (as I did) get the German version for kindle.
The first part was really good, the second was OK, now I’ll read the last part…
