Star Wars Galaxy of Fear #3
Planet Plague
by John Whitman

Published by Bantam

Scott's Rating:   1 out of 4

This is book #3 in the Galaxy of Fear series.

I'm going to do something rare here. I'm going to summarize the storylines for the last three stories in one paragraph.

Tash, Zak, and Uncle Hoole are flying through space when they decide they need to land on the planet D'Vouran/Necropolis/Gobindi. As they arrive, not all seems as it should. Tash and Zak sense something is wrong. Eventually, they run into trouble. They try to tell the adults in the story, but nobody listens. Just as things are going bad for the kids, Luke&Leia&Han/Boba Fett/ Wedge come by and save the kids. Then the adults begin to believe that something really is wrong. But it is too late. The Planet/Zombies/Blobs attack. As everything falls apart, the bad guy explains why and how everything has happened. We fear for Tash and Zak as one of them faces being turned into food/zombies/blobs. However, our film heroes return and save the day in the end. Everyone is happy, but can they trust their Uncle Hoole? What are his connections to the Empire? And what is the Empire's ultimate goal?


    As I continue to read this series, I find little to compliment on since it has all already been done. Yes, it was neat to see Wedge in this story, but he served no purpose. The story was wrapped up too neatly, too. I did like the cover art by Steve Chorney. His style is a lot like Drew Struzan's, my favorite artist. However, they really need to use his talents on other books. The idea of biological warfare is rarely seen in the Star Wars novels, so it was good to see it here. It is also good to see some more Force sensitive characters in the books. Looks like Tash is going to be a Jedi eventually, if she can make it through therapy after all this 'scary' stuff.


    I think I've already made it clear what I didn't like in this book. The story was just not very original. But there's no need beating a dead taun-taun.


    Being attacked by snot-balls. Where's a big box of Kleenex when you need it?
