Enter the explosive universe of the exciting online game STAR WARS GALAXIES: AN EMPIRE DIVIDED! It is a time of great turmoil. The oppressive Empire is close to seizing complete control of the galaxy. The ragtag guerrilla army of the Rebel Alliance fights on, striking wherever it can, but now something has come to light that could spell certain doom. Hidden in the Jedi ruins of Dantooine is a Holocron containing a list of high-level Rebel sympathizers. If that list were to fall into the hands of Darth Vader, the Rebel Alliance would lose its most valued support--and possibly the war itself. As an Imperial bio-engineer who frequently visits other worlds, Dusque Mistflier is the perfect cover for a Rebel who needs to travel far and wide without arousing suspicion. And so she agrees to help Rebel spy Finn Darktrin in his quest to recover the crucial Holocron. Despite help from Han, Luke, and Leia, the mission is fraught with peril. And as their journey takes them into the fiery belly of the beast that is galactic civil war, Dusque and Finn will learn that the hardest part of all is figuring out whose side you're on--and how far you're willing to go to win. . . .… (mer)

The book Ruins of Dantooine by Voronica Whitney-Robinson is about an Imperial Spy, an Imperial Scientist, a Rebel Spy, and the ruins of a Rebel Base stationed on Dantooine. It starts at a new cantina celebration that opens with a trained animal Fight that an Imperial scientist, the only female on her team, named Dusque and her Comrade, an Ithorian, named Tendau attend. During the fighting Dusque looks around and finds that a man has been staring at her the whole time, he had black pupils and unblinking eyes. Later Tendau lets Dusque try some of the games and she meets Lando Calrissian, at the sabacc table. After, Tendau and Dusque go to Rori to find a Borgle, a type of demon bat that terrorizes the locals and they find it in a cave and they get scared off. Then Tendau gets killed a traitor and Dusque leaves with the rebel spy named Finn. Then Finn and Dusque go to the rebel base on Yavin 4 to get orders from Leia to go to Dantooine to the rebel base to go look for the hologram with the names of rebel sympathizers. The find it, retrieve it, and start on their way back to Yavin 4 to give it to Leia. On the way there Finn starts downloading the names and Dusque says that he shouldn’t do that in case an Imperial spy was on their tail. Then Finn tells her that He is the Imperial spy and then stabs Dusque and leaves.
I liked this book because it had three different moods: Love, Betrayal, and Devotion. I also like how she made the characters’ characteristics describe their loyalties. I think it would satisfy some of the seventh graders because it is a rather long book with 268 pages. I believe we have quite a few star wars fans in school and this book would also satisfy them to. I think it has a high reading level.

The premise: ganked from BN.com: Enter the explosive universe of the exciting online game STAR WARS GALAXIES: AN EMPIRE DIVIDED!

It is a time of great turmoil. The oppressive Empire is close to seizing complete control of the galaxy. The ragtag guerrilla army of the Rebel Alliance fights on, striking wherever it can, but now something has come to light that could spell certain doom. Hidden in the Jedi ruins of Dantooine is a Holocron containing a list of high-level Rebel sympathizers. If that list were to fall into the hands of Darth Vader, the Rebel Alliance would lose its most valued support—and possibly the war itself.

As an Imperial bio-engineer who frequently visits other worlds, Dusque Mistflier is the perfect cover for a Rebel who needs to travel far and wide without arousing suspicion. And so she agrees to help Rebel spy Finn Darktrin in his quest to recover the crucial Holocron. Despite help from Han, Luke, and Leia, the mission is fraught with peril. And as their journey takes them into the fiery belly of the beast that is galactic civil war, Dusque and Finn will learn that the hardest part of all is figuring out whose side you’re on—and how far you’re willing to go to win. . . .

My Rating: Below Standard

So whether you're a regular Star Wars reader or someone looking to dive into the EU universe, I'll say this: skip this one. No, seriously, skip this one. Especially if you're new to SW novels: DO NOT START HERE. Pretend it doesn't exist and you'll be fine. Seriously. Because it's obvious by the end of the book that The Ruins of Dantooine was meant to be the start of its own series. That the series never happened is quite telling, but is it any wonder? For all the little things that are neat about this book, you find those same things done far better in other SW novels. This book is riddled with amateur mistakes, and its heroine misses so many obvious clues about the nature of what's really happening that you could justifably say she's Too Stupid to Live. The obvious Mary Sue-ness/wish-fulfillment of this character is also extremely unfortunate. There are so many things that could've been done with this book to make it a really interesting and fascinating installment to the EU that I'm appalled that this one made it past the editor's desk. I know people often accuse media tie-in novels of being nothing but authorized fan-fiction, but this book really gives media tie-ins a bad name, because it reads as exactly that: fan-fic, mediocre at best. Don't get me wrong when I say there are some parts of it to enjoy. But it could've been so much better.

So yeah: don't read this unless you absolutely must. This is not the Star Wars book you're looking for.

But if you ARE looking for a story set between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back? Check out the new Star Wars comic series by Brian Wood. Number #1 just came out last week, and Leia gets to fly an X-Wing. It's light-years better than this book.

Spoilers, yay or nay?: Yay. And I also want to point out: there will be spoilers, at any given moment, for the entire run of Star Wars books up until the date the current book was published. So if the Star Wars are something you want to get into, stop now and read THIS instead. I don't recommend anyone reading this review unless they've read the book I'm reviewing now, due to aforementioned spoilers, so stop now or -- if you have read the book -- carry on to the full review at my blog!
