Boba Fett 6: Pursuit / Elizabeth Hand : 4 of 5
Even though this "young Boba Fett" series isn't nearly as well written as the Jedi Apprentice and Jedi Quest series, it's still a fantastic set of tales that make great use of the Star Wars galaxy of characters. It's always cool to read about Boba's feelings when he guns down a Stormtrooper, since they are all really "him" and his father - such is the life of a clone! Boba's emotions aren't as well described as Anakin's were in my other Scholastic Star Wars books, but I definitely enjoy reading them anyway. This volume picks up at the cliffhanger of the last book, with Boba escaping capture and going after a bounty, when suddenly he's attacked by Anakin! Boba actually meets Anakin (who knows who he is), and Anakin even repairs the Slave I (pretty cool when you think about it)! The second half of the story involves Boba's quest for revenge against Mace Windu, who killed Jango Fett in Episode II (of course), so he ends up being escorted to Coruscant (by a young Tarkin, no less!) to meet with Palpatine (since Boba found out about the Dooku/Tyrannus duality in the earlier books). Anyway, there's a good fight scene with Windu, and the meeting with Palpatine is pretty spooky, too. After that, it feels like this series is already over, but I hope they come up with more stories.
