Note: I scheduled this entry in advance so that it posts at 8:00 AM. I’ll be late getting the link posted on the host’s blog.

The rules are very simple: spotlight a book that begins with the featured letter. Include the book cover, title and author, a synopsis, and link(s) to retailer(s). If it’s a book you’ve already reviewed, link to the review. Return to Reading at the Beach and leave a link in the comments.
This week’s letter is: J
This week pick: Jedi Twilight (Coruscant Nights I) by Michael Reaves
From the back: Jax Pavan is one of the few Jedi Knights who miraculously survived the slaughter that followed Palpatine’s ruthless Order 66. Now, deep in Coruscant’s Blackpit Slums, Jax ekes out a living as a private investigator, trying to help people in need while concealing his Jedi identity and staying one step ahead of the killers out for Jedi blood. And they’re not the only ones in search of the elusive Jax.
Comment: I’ve long been a fan of the Star Wars Expanded Universe — the officially licensed books, comics, etc. that build on the movies — however, I’ve been slacking lately. The year is almost over and I haven’t read a single book. I chose to feature this one to make myself feel guilty about breaking the promise I made to myself, that I would read at least four Star Wars books this year.
As for the book itself, it takes place after Revenge of the Sith and features characters from other books written by the author. Go here or click on the “SWEU” tab at the top of blog to see which books I’ve already reviewed. The Expanded Universe is one of the few series of books that I will write a DNF review, instead of just mentioning it, if I don’t complete the book for whatever reason.
This is a re-post, due to data loss. (Oct 09)
