Young Jedi Knights #11
The Emperor's Plague
by Kevin J. Anderson & Rebecca Moesta

Published by Berkley

Scott's Rating:   3 out of 4

This story concludes the Diversity Alliance storyline. The Alliance is now aware of the Diversity Alliance, but not everyone believes the Young Jedi Knight's story that they are bad. They send a fact finding mission led by Luke Skywalker to see what's up. Meanwhile, the kids race Nolaa Tarkona to an Imperial Storehouse on a hidden asteroid which holds a virus that could wipe out all humans. The Diversity Alliance wins, releases the plague, and wipes out everyone. Just kidding. You know how it ends.


    I like it when the stories get to the point. This is what all the earlier books have been leading up to. It's much faster paced and there's quite a bit more action. You see IG-88 take on some baddies, Lowie battle the Trandosian in one last grudge match, and Boba Fett kick booty. Plus there's the obligatory space battle at the end. This is a good one for the action lovers.


    The Diversity Alliance fizzled pretty easily. From the build up, you would think they would have been a bit more formidable. However, we see why they are not even mentioned in books that chronologically follow this one. Overall, this was really an average story. Plus, the battle scene at the end seemed to be a lot of running around in circles. And the death of one of the characters didn't seem to serve much purpose other than for us to say, "Awww, that's too bad." As soon as they are dead, they are pretty much forgotten, which surprised me considering how they were one of the focal points of the story. And I didn't really care that he died. Overall the story was pretty good, but not great. Hopefully the younger audiences will like it more.


    Nolaa Tarkona with the cooties. Man, she was really beat with the ugly stick.
