LotF: Invincible book review by JosephB222 LotF: Invincible book review by JosephB222
****edit**** I swapped out the original pic I posted for this review (you can find it here in it's WIP place [link] ). I wanted a pic that more suited the book. I thought about having a spoiler warning for this pic, but then it doesn't really reveal anything the cover doesn't. I also wanted to try something a little more artsy (and not in that Episode II we-don't-want-to-choreograph-the-Anakin-Dooku-lightsaber-duel kinda way ;p ). I only have the base colored fill in, but with all the black and shadow I don't think adding the contrast to the colors will make much difference.

And this review is full of spoilers; BEWARE.




Review: ***SPOILER WARNING***




I really enjoyed this book. First of all it has to be the very first Jaina-centric book they've ever come out with (I don't count "Dark Journey" since it only tried to be a "Jaina" book and made such a big deal about her going dark but then really did nothing to pay it off, it's what I call a story without a climax). And this was probably the only book in the whole Legacy series that had more good than bad. Of course it helps that most of the annoyances were in the previous books to set up this one.

The first thing I have to mention is that this book undid alot of the Jedi bashing done in "Revelation", and thankfully Jaina and Luke were no longer just standing there passively while the Mandos and other characters lectured them about how the Jedi are the cause of all that is wrong in the galaxy. And Boba Fett and the Mandolorians were finally portrayed in a more believable fashion, probably due to the fact that this is the only non-Traviss book they're in.

And I really like how Luke was portrayed in this book. Yeah, he is still over-powered but at least they had him in a more "Yoda" role, readying a younger Jedi to take on the mission he himself could have accomplished in each of the previous 3 books :O_o: . But at least they came up with a plausible arguement why he couldn't be the one to kill Jacen, but I wish that Jaina hadn't had so much help during her first duel with Jacen, Luke giving her the boost in the Force and projecting his image over her to throw Jacen off balance. It kinda diminishes Jaina as the Sword of the Jedi. But since this was only their first duel and it happened barely halfway through the book it didn't have to be a "normal" duel.

Which brings up the point that this was a very short book. It didn't seem as abridged as Denning's "Inferno" did, but it would have been nice to see some characters and scenes fleshed out a bit, alot of the action not focusing on Jaina, Jacen, and Ben happens off screen. But the story did move along at a nice pace.

And Caedus is finally the big bad this series has been boasting he was. Where was this Caedus 5 books ago!? The shatterpoint was a nice touch, it's a better feat than being able to use the Force to deflect laser bolts (which I will always think of as being as dumb a superpower as Superman's freeze breath ;P ). Too bad we get this Caedus in the final book of the series (not to mention his life :hmm: ). But why teach Jaina this technique if she's not even going to use it?

Another first, Tahiri was presented as a credible (if conflicted) apprentice, dispite the poor set up of her becoming a Sith in the previous books, but much like Anakin and Padme's unconvincingly "falling in love" in Episode II, we get the payoff in a following "episode" :D . And I love the fact that it was Ben who was the one to deal with her. And while I liked their free-falling part of their duel, the battle was much too brief and Tahiri had practically given up before it had started, so it didn't have much impact when Tahiri was "redeemed".

Dispite all the back up Jaina had in this story she was thankfully allowed to be on her own most of the time, epsecially during the final part of the book when she boarded the Anakin Solo. Zek's "dying" (maybe) was a good thing for her, not in I didn't care for his character kinda way, but that it allowed her to "stand alone".

And that brings us to the final confrontation with Caedus. I knew it was too much to hope that Jaina and Jacen would come face to face with each other, maybe exchange some words, ignite lightsabers and try to kill each other. I mean, it's only how every lightsaber duel in every movie began :O_o: Instead, we have Jacen literally running into Jaina's lightsaber before the fight even begins :omfg: Okay, she's not getting a power boost from Luke this time, but how much of an advantage does she need?! He's already missing an arm! But other than that the fight was pretty good, but I keep wondering why these authors never try to make a "normal" duel. So one of the few nitpicks in this book. Another thing that bugged me was the quick ending. There was no follow up with Ben and/or Luke, Tahiri, Tenel Kal in regards to Jacen's death (but then they probably couldn't do that without revealing the "surprise" at the end). And the convenient way that the war ended and piece was issued throughout the galaxy. Just seemed a little to easy. But then with the very unconvincing way the war began in the first place, it somehow fits this series :shrug:

So Jaina finally gets to be the hero, unfortunately, it is in what is probably one of the weakest storylines of the EU novels. While there was a lot to enjoy in this series the bad (more like annoying) far outweighed the good, and tragically we lost the lives of serveral major characters, some of which deserved much better than they got in this series; specifically Mara.

Grading the series as a whole I would have to give it a 5 out 10. "Invincible" was arguably the best book in the series if for no other reason that most of the bad choices and mistakes by the authors were done in the previous 8 books.

In closing . . .

Since this wasn't an "Infinities" story, Mara, Jacen, and Palleon will remain dead, I am glad that Allana is still alive. And I dearly hope that Jaina isn't sent to the background once again and that she and Ben are featured more. Well, Ben never really had a shortage of spotlight, he got more of it in this series than Jaina has in all the books she's appeared in, but here's hoping the torch has finally been passed to the next Skywalker/Solo generation.

Ratings of Individual books:

Invincible - 8
Betrayal - 7
Inferno - 7
Fury - 7
Exile - 6
Tempest - 6
Bloodlines - 5
Revelation - 5
Sacrifice - (currently reading)

They didn't even have the courtesy to inform Tim Zahn of Mara's fate till AFTER the decision was made. He was decidedly unhappy about that.

About Caedus... I really must say it shows a lot about his power that he actually had the upper hand in the entire duel against Jaina at the end (she won mainly through sheer luck) despite her many advantages... He had only one arm, a hole through his body, he was distracted by trying to save Allana and Tenel Ka, she had the element of surprise, etc.

Actually, the sole reason for his failing was probably because he failed to break his attachment:
1) His attachment to Ben Skywalker made him try to convert Ben to the dark side for longer than he should have, and to teach him techniques that were used against him a lot of times, like the "hiding in the force" thing that Ben later taught Jaina and Mara who both used it to surprise attack Jacen (Jaina on multiple occasions).
2) His attachment to Allana is what distracted him throughout the entire duel against Jaina in the incinerator room, but it was also the reason he went down into the incinerator room instead of staying in one of the upper levels of the Anakin Solo, where he had more backup and more space to manuver. This attachment is also what made him try to stop the Moffs from poisoning Tenel Ka and Allana, while letting them do it would keep them happy and bind them closer to him in service.

Of course, there is also the (author) problem that you mentioned with Jaina learning shatterpoint but never using it... and also with her being taught combat by Fett and the Mandalorians but still fighting much like a jedi usually does? Not to mention the vast array of force powers that Caedus knew that should have saved him (or at least given him the upper hand in the duel more than it did) but that he did not really use... He was the most powerful force user of his time, except Luke Skywalker, as well as one of the best lightsaber duelists of his time. There is really no way Jaina should have won, even with Caedus initial injuries.

I agree, more or less. The series included my second most hated twist (MJS dying) and my absolute favorite Sith name ever. But honestly, I'm sort of attached to the original characters, as fun as the new ones are. In retrospect, they could have done a whole heck of a lot better (hiring Timothy Zahn to write it, for example). Plus, I actually prefer the stand alone or like trilogies withing the EU. The Vong war was enough of a shock, what with all that happened in it. They probably shouldn't have taken this path with the EU.

xP but I digress. This picture is awesome!!! I especially love your depiction of Caedus. Why is it that the bad guys always look so dang awesome?

I personally enjoyed most of the Legacy series but only because I really like Jacen as a sith lord. I thought he was great in Invincible but I just wish that he had been like that sooner. Jaina killing Jacen really pissed me off because so much of this series was spent talking about how powerful Jacen was but he was killed by his supposedly weaker sister. I'm sure that if Luke hadn't given Jaina that power boost than she would have lost in the first battle. And the final duel when Jaina killed jacen just made me ridiculously angry because he didn't even fight back. Bottom line i liked the series as a whole but Jacen's death just about ruined it for me.

Well background wise violet is associated with the Jedi Weaponsmaster, which is a suitable title for the "Sword of the Jedi", with Jaina being so skilled with her lightsaber.

It seems like they can't decide what color Jaina's lightsaber is supposed to be. It's always been described as violet, so I just went with what I knew violet to be (the color in this pic), and in "Invicible" (dispite the cover) her lightsaber is described as violet and blue. And since there are more than twice as many covers of her carrying a violet blue saber (actually "Invincible" may be the only cover of Jaina with a purple lightsaber) I'm just going to stick with that.

Beautiful piece--and I really like that you've got them standing together here (even if it is for the last time... **lip quivers**), yet looking away from each other...very poignant.

I agree with your feelings on the final installment--it felt to me, throughout, very "abbreviated" and perfunctory, as though they were simply trying to tie up the "loose threads" (mentioned in someone else's review); also trying to tie it in with the Legacy comics (already written...felt very much like it was forced). I didn't like the way the final duel ended either--the most powerful Sith Lord ever, unable to defend himself against a Jedi Knight (despite the prophecy of the "Sword" and all that)? Unable to send a out a warning AND hack at his opponent without a second thought...?! Unrealistic, considering what they had credited him with being able to do in the previous books. The scene with Han and Leia seeing them together in the aftermath was heartrending (I admit to blubbering pretty good there, despite knowing it was coming). Tahiri...I really feel it was a machination to bring young Anakin's previous Force-vision to fruition: that she would become a "dark Jedi" at some point...a slap to her character, in any case...I liked her before--now, not so much (too easily manipulated, which goes completely against her Riina traits).

Good book--dreadfully sad events, but we all knew those were coming; I only wish there had been more attention paid to the thoughts and feelings of the characters--that might have made the whole thing more cohesive and easier to accept: Caedus' feelings about Allana, Ben's feelings about his mom (he can't be over that yet), about Jacen's fall and death (he really loved his cousin, when he was Jacen Solo...)--Luke's feelings about the risk of Jaina perhaps falling to the Dark Side, having to kill her twin brother, despite what he'd become...none of that was touched on. That's just my own lament--but the book was well-written despite what I felt it lacked.

I, too, hope we don't lose Jaina in the future books now--I'd love to see her be granted Master status, take on some padawans, find her place in the order and FINALLY find a special someone to love, whom she can love (I'm praying the "Sword" prophecy won't deny her that...). Forward we go, then. RIP, Darth Caedus--we loved hating you...

Hey, it's been awhile since I've heard from you! You have been missed :hug:

I haven't started reading the "Legacy" comic yet, so any allussions made were lost on me anyway ;p . And there are a lot of things I wish Denning had done differently with the final duel. Not having Jacen run straight into Jaina's lightsaber before the fight started would be at the top of the list for sure :omg: The movies are full of Padawans and apprentices taking down warriors of higher rank. Darth Maul was an apprentice and he took down Master Qui-gon. Obiwan, a padawan, in turn took down the Sith who defeated his Master. Anakin beat Dooku in their second confrontation. And we can't forget that Luke had to defeat his own father in order to become a full Jedi. It's not hard to believe that Jaina could have taken down Caedus without all the advantages given to her if a little more effort was put into making a more epic final duel.

And that scene with Jaina holding Jacen in her lap is one of my favorites. I am man enough to admit that moments like that make me cry 8-) .

I actually liked how Tahiri was portrayed in this book. If the authors had given this much attention to her fall to the dark side in the previous books leading up to "Invincible" then her whole fall and redemption would have had more meaning. Instead she's pretty much the character who killed Palleon.

And I do agree with you with the lack of attention the other characters got at the end. With all the characters and subplots going on in this series, the only ones who got closure were the Solos. They could have spared a couple pages to reflect on the other chracters like Luke and Ben putting Mara to rest, so to speak, looking to the future, maybe mention what will happen to Tahiri.

And if Jaina isn't annointed a Jedi Master after this then those in charge of the EU are definitely sexist. In Episode II Obiwan was already a master and he had to be about Jaina's age. Luke was definitely younger than Jaina when everyone started calling him a Jedi Master.

But there's nothing we can do but wait for the next book ;) which comes out the day before the end of the year! :wtf:

Well the books were good, but as a series.... I totally agree with Joseph that the duels are lacking, first Mara , than Jacen, I mean Jaina just killed him without any bigger struggle. I think he would have deserved a longer battle, or to be honest a few more books. And the books don't really add up as a whole series.... that's why I like it when a serie of books is done by the same writer. Jaina is one of my favourite characters, she isn't the average goody-goody jedi, she is stubborn, aggresssive and headstrong. I mean Yoda would never had force-pushed Jagged Fel into a tree just because he bested him in training.

:iconjosephb222:
JosephB222 Featured By Owner May 29, 2008
With "Invincible" Jaina has definitely become a favorite of mine. She really does have that Solo stubbornness ;) .

And they certainly didn't need more books, if anything, considering how much they meandered around they probably would have had a tighter story if each author had done 2 books. Especially when they had a Boba Fett subplot that took up half of the Traviss books that didn't even contribute to the main story until the last two books, and even then you could skip everything about the Mandalorians in Bloodlines and Sacrifice (which I did) and still not miss anything when Jaina goes to train with Boba Fett. And they had Jacen fall to the dark side on the very first book. They could have either put that off until the second book or made him a Sith a book or two early. That would have meant Mara dying a little sooner, but then she may have gone out better than she did in "Sacrifice".

Another thing that annoyed me (of which there are many) was that it took so long for the Skywalkers and Solos to be convinced that Jacen COULD be capable, much less actually did, kill Mara, that even when Ben took all this time and effort to gather all kinds of evidence we really don't know if that would have finally convinced them because Jacen confesses :wtf: and then their reaction to it was -- wait, there was no reaction to it :eyepopping:

Just read your review and had to pretty much agree with everything. The ending was a tad...anticlimactic. I expected a far more engrossing final duel between a Sith Lord and 'The Butter Knife of the Jedi'...;-)

I also wondered why Jason came across as, well, almost delusional in the end, proclaiming he could see that they were winning.

It would have also been nice to have read more of the Sith on Korriban, maybe even a mention of Darth Krayt.

Makes me wonder what books will come out now?

Yeah, the final duel needed a little more to it. The next book is going to be Millenium Falcon. It seems like it's going to be Han, Leia, and Allana on an adventure looking into the origins of the Falcon while Luke (hopefully with Ben and Jaina) investigate why Jacen fell to the dark side. The Korriban Sith might be in the book.

But I have to say that I found the scene with Jaina, Leia, and Han bending grief-stricken over Jacen's body heartrending. It was wise of Troy Denning not to have them feeling triumphant at Jacen's all-too-neccesary death. After all, this was Leia and Han's firstborn son and Jaina's twin brother, and he was deeply loved by them. And he was not born evil; the Yuuzhan Vong war destroyed the real Jacen Solo and left a gaping void to be filled by the Sith entity that wanted to meld with him -- and did with Lumiya's help.

It's going to be interesting to see how the Skywalker/Solo clan deals with the aftermath of this. Regardless of Jaina telling her dead twin that their bond as twins had been restored, she has to feel like literally half of her is missing and I hope the authors of this new upcoming series are smart enough to keep that in mind. While Leia and Han can find solace in Jacen's daughter Allana, they still have to wrestle with his death and the impact it leaves on them. Not to show them doing that is highly unrealistic.

And one more thing. Troy Denning apparently forgot that Force-sensitive beings can sense the deaths of others through the Force, which explains why Luke, Leia, Ben, Tahiri Veila, and Tenel Ka didn't feel Jacen's death when it happened. An unfortunate oversight on Mr. Denning's part.

JosephB222 Featured By Owner May 19, 2008
Yeah, that moment with all the Solos was very emotional. And it was handled perfectly. I was certainly hoping for something like this (as my previous Jaina and Jacen pic shows ;) ). And I hope there is some aftermath in the next book, which I hope is a paperback, however I believe James Luceno's books (who I think is writing it) have all been hardcovers. Oh, well. I least I'll have plenty of time to save up ;p

As for Force-sensitives being able to feel others deaths through the Force is something that I think they're over using in the books anyway. There are instances in the movies where some deaths seemed to have gone unnoticed, especially in Episode III. It doesn't seem like many (if anyone) at the Jedi Temple felt the deaths of Windu and the other Council Masters Palpatine killed, otherwise how would thousands of Clone troops be able to just march up to the temple unnonticed? And even though Yoda felt something when all the Jedi were being killed I don't think he knew exactly what was happening, other than it was something terrible. At the time Jacen died, Luke and the other Jedi were busy storming the Anakin Solo. Though it would make sense Leia would be able to sense what's happening with her twin children.

Again I think it's just that there are so many more Force abilities in the EU, which I suspect is more from authors looking for shortcuts are new ways of doing things rather than finding creative ways to use what's already available. When Battle Meditation was first introduced in the Knights of the Old Republic, it was very cool but Bastila was pretty much the only one who was able to do it, and it wasn't something that could be done with a flick of the wrist. In the current EU novels it seems like every one can do it.

I have to agree with you with regards to the showdown between Jacen and Jaina. I mean, come one, even with only one arm and a hole in his gut he's the most powerful Sith Lord who ever lived! And Jaina is the Sword of the Jedi, the obvious successor to Luke Skywalker as Jedi Grand Master! With Force strength like that, their fight to the death should have been a least several pages longer and should have had more sparks flying. To sum it up, it was little more than a repeat of the meager death-duel between Jacen and Mara in "Sacrifice". I felt quite cheated.

:iconjosephb222:
JosephB222 Featured By Owner May 18, 2008
Yeah, I think my biggest gripe about the novels (and this is also true to the novels from the '90s) is that hardly any of the lightsaber duels (on the rare occassion they happen) feel like duels. Not one of the duels in any of the movies had either combatant using extra weapons like blasters or grenades, and the only Force powers that were usually used were the usual acrobatics, push, pull, and sometimes lightning (for the Sith). In the EU they have so many powers opponents sometimes don't even have to move. It's not just about making duels longer, but taking a little more time to give them more of a choreography, make them a little more epic. There is a reason why Lucas set Anakin and Obiwan's duel on Mustafar, and it wasn't just to crisp Anakin, it was also very cool backdrop for such a memorable battle :D .

And I agree about the epic-ness of the duels in the "Star Wars" fillms. It's part of what makes them so special and unforgettable. I'm just sorry that the EU writers don't take at least a little more time to set theirs up in that fashion to make them more satisfying to the readers.

Okay, you're correct about the lack of Force-sensitivity in the people I mentioned. I should have remembered that Ben Skywalker and Tahiri Veila were preoccupied with their own fight while everybody was busy storming the "Anakin Solo". But I think they all should have felt at least a small sensation of Jacen's death. It would only have been logical for them to do so. :nod:

So James Luceno is the one who'll be writing the new series? Thanks for the info. I'll keep my eyes peeled for him. :)

I don't know if it's a new series, so far it seems like it's only one book, as it doesn't have a main title like "New Jedi Order" or "Legacy of the Force". It's just called "Millenium Falcon".
