Book Review: Vector Prime
R. A. Salvatore’s Vector Prime (2004) is the first book of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. A new threat from outside the known galaxy reaches the republic. These visitors have one thing in mind: conquest. Leia, Luke and Han will do everything possible to keep the galaxy safe.
Every Star Wars expanded universe novel I’ve read felt like a standalone event. One story had small repercussions on subsequent books. After reading this book, everything changed. When I finished reading this book I got a horrible feeling in my stomach. I got the feeling for two reasons. One, I have “to be continued” endings and two, I felt sick to my stomach. The second feeling was hard to describe. It wasn’t a good feeling. Years later I figured out what the feeling was. This feeling came out time and time again when I watched the “Game Of Thrones” show. If you’ve watched the show, you know what I’m talking about.
Salvatore changed the game with this book. The stakes get raised and everything changes from this point forward. If you call yourself a Star Wars fan, you have to read this book. But I must warn you, prepare yourself. This is not your regular Star Wars book. After you finish with this book, I guarantee you’ll want to read the next book in the series.
