Annihilation is something new for me in the Star Wars mythos, canon or legend. It is a kind of genre that I have not seen yet: a spy book. I like it because I can expect something new, even if I already know one or two of the characters. I absolutely love the usual Star Wars books, but the breath of fresh air is still nice. I also like how it manages to mention events that wrap up the loose ends created by the other three books, creating a feeling that tells you this is the last book in the series. Again, ten out of ten for familiarity, yet no predictability. @R2-D2 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I really like Drew Karpshyn's Star Wars books and the Old Republic, but I didn't really find Annihilation very interesting. It was hard to get into and I didn't really feel like the villain was in this book enough. (I actually think it would have been better if Darth Marr had been the villain). Of course I liked that we got to read about Satele Shan and that we got to see Theron's relationship with his parents, but I guess I can just say that I don't think this is one of the best Old Republic novels that I've read.

I was a little skeptical going into this book, reading that the adventure was about a non-force sensitive protagonist. However I was surprised by the epicness of the battles and force stuff. The sith lord Darth Karid was a wicked cool character and character concept - how she integrated her force abilities and physical form into a spaceship. I like how the book ties in figures from other novels, such as Satele Shen from "Star Wars: Fatal Alliance" (currently reading) by Sean Williams.
