After seeing Kevin Anderson rescue the Callista trilogy from Barbara Hambly in his book Darksaber, I was ready to read Star Wars: The Jedi Academy: Jedi Search: Volume 1 of the Jedi Academy Trilogy: Book 1. And what a pleasure it was to read. I now put Kevin Anderson up there with my favorite Star Battles authors, Timothy Zahn, Steve Perry, and Troy Denning.I loved "Jedi Search." I've been reading stories that take put after "Jedi Academy" and missed out on some of the references. This book (and I'm sure the rest of the trilogy) really filled me in. It introduces Kyp Durron, who is referenced so a lot of times in future stories. I can see why, because he's a amazing character. Luke, Leia and Han all have interesting roles. We obtain to see the twins' reintroduction into Han and Leia's lives. What realism there is in the interactions of all the family members, including Luke's role as uncle and Leia's being mom. The children really act as children would. How cute!I sense that Luke, with all he's been through, is still and maybe always will be a small naive -- always believing in the amazing in people. Although I haven't read the rest of the trilogy, there is foreboding, and I'm glad that Kevin Anderson has kept with the character, as I think that is how it should be for Luke.I know there is amazing concern about the storyline with another weapon of mass destruction, but I much prefer that over metalmastiff and entechment. The rest of the story was wonderfully written. I finally obtain to see what the deal over the spice mines of Kessel was. What an interesting story we obtain from that. And the Maw. That pops up over and over again in other books and now I know why. Wow.Of all the Star Battles authors, I think Kevin Anderson excels best at action sequences and war scenes. Whereas my eyes normally glaze over and I file those sections under "battle scene" and move on, I can actually visualize every detail of what's event in "Jedi Search" with ease. I don't think I've ever read scenes like those with such clarity. I was so fully immersed, it was real, I could feel everything. What a moving experience. If you like action sequences, there's plenty here that's done well.If you are working your method through the Star Battles universe, this is a definite must read book. So much of it is referenced in other books. I didn't know how much I was missing until I read it. But read not just for "historical" content, read it because it is a genuinely amazing FBWY
While not a amazing book, this first installment of the Jedi Academy Trilogy was a fun read. The story mainly focuses on Han Solo's diplomatic mission to Kessel (which quickly goes awry), Luke Skywalker's find for potential Jedi students, and Leia Solo's balancing act between her roles as a Fresh Republic official and the mother of the Jedi twins Jacen and Jaina. Other well know characters, such as Mon Mothma, Lando Calrissian, and Wedge Antilles, also create their appearances in this book. Sadly Mara Jade and Talon Karrde from the Thrawn trilogy do not come into play; but a fresh Imperial villain is introduced, as well as a few other slightly less necessary (but still entertaining) side e story itself is rather interesting, particularly Han and Chewie's predicament on Kessel, and fans who wish to continue the story of Star Battles past "Return of the Jedi" and Timothy Zahn's "Last Command" should have fun this. However the book suffers from several flaws. First, the writing itself is somewhat lackluster. Anderson's descriptions of the Star Battles universe are filled with metaphors and similes that don't always quite fit, and he is seldom able conjure up a meaningful photo of whatever he is describing. He also seems to be stuck on using the word "metallic" in his descriptions (everything looks metallic, feels metallic, smells metallic, tastes metallic, etc.). While his recreation of the stock characters is faithful, it is also somewhat bland. Han Solo seemed to be the only hero with any true life, but even that only comes from his sarcastic banter with the characters on Kessel. You could tell that Anderson wanted to discover various parts of the character's lives (such as Leia's fresh role as a mother and Luke making the transition from student to teacher), but this was done more through internal exposition and "naval gazing" than true hero development. Sometimes these "character moments" were stuck into the middle of a dialogue or action scene, and really disrupted the pacing. So the characters came off as rather stale and monotone.While reading this, I also felt that Anderson constantly had to remind his readers that this was a Star Battles book. Almost every other page had some reference to previous happenings in the movies or the books/comics. While some of these references were important to establish the background for fresh readers, the info was then repeated at some other point later in the story, and then again, and then again! At several points I found myself saying "Yes, you told me about the relationship between these characters already, I obtain it. Let's move on!" I didn't mind the referrences themselves, but there was no need to repeat them so a lot of times. Also there were times when the descriptions became obvious attempts to remind the reader that this is a Star Battles book. For instance, Luke Skywalker doesn't wear a robe. He wears a "Jedi robe"; and every time Anderson refers to it, he has to call it a "Jedi robe", whether it fits with the narrative flow or not. Yes, thank you, I know Luke Skywalker is a Jedi Master. You don't need to remind me every time he appears in the narrative. It just seemed that Anderson tried to hard to create this a Star Battles book to the point that the writing and plot suffered. As if the readers somehow missed the huge Star Battles logo on the cover/title page. Oh, and don't even obtain me started on the blob races on Umgal! I don't ever wish to hear another complaint about the pod race in Phantom Menace again!One more thing that I wish to point out is the introduction of the twins, Jacen and Jaina. This is the first time that Leia is actually able to spend time with her two children, and there have been a lot of allusions to the fact that these two have amazing potential to be Jedi Knights. They would later play very necessary roles in the Star Battles universe. And in this book, which should start building the fans' relationship with these characters and support us to care about them... they are written like two whiny two year olds from a poor sitcom. Yes I know toddlers can be a handful, but there wasn't anything about either of these two children that was endearing or showed any kind of personality. True kids cry, but they also learn, explore, interact, and present affection, all the while building hero and personality (believe me, I have a one year old daughter; there is personality and hero at that age). This is all items that we SHOULD have seen but didn't. Instead we see Leia passing the children off to C3P-0 so that she can go organize more political events, leading to Saturday-morning-Disney-channel-like capers for the twins and the prissy droid. I was so ready to smack Leia in the face and tell her "Take a leave of absence. The galaxy will still be there when you obtain back. Your children won't!" If something had happened where Leia was actually able to spend time with her kids and we could see the relationship develop, that would have been interesting. Instead, Anderson felt the need to continue putting Leia in the political arena and have her angst about not getting to spend time with her children, limiting her interaction with them to listening to them cry and then passing them off to C3P-0. What a l in all, this is a mediocre read, and fans will have fun the progression of the story more than the experience of reading the book itself. A valiant effort, but also the effect of trying too hard.
I greatly enjoyed reading this book. I was very disappointed to search that I had finished the book at 68%. The remaining 32% is just "about the author" and excerpts from other books.
When I was a kid, there was nothing better than a amazing Star Battles book to read and I did read this series then. Flash forward to show day and I re-read the series, I realize how corny the whole Star Battles story is. But then it is fiction and not to be taken seriously. So as entertainment, it is good.
Wow...I normally like Star Battles books but this was, well.....bad. I felt like I was reading a book created from a film screenplay. Sort of like when I first read Splinter of the Minds Eye or the Star Battles novels back when they came out. It felt like it was written for a 4th grader. That's my take. Sorry for the negative review but I just couldn't obtain over the method it was written. It had so much potential, too. I felt the same about all three of this series. Couldn't wait to obtain through them because they were so bad.
I would like to see more of the empire action in here. Maybe because of being the first part of the series is why it lacks of action. I guess the next book in the series would be a better parameter to measure the quality of the history.
This was an awesome book! I had a hard time putting it down even to sleep or go to work. The story flowed well and there was never a dull moment. Loved Morgan and her fellow hunters. Can't wait for the next book in the series!!
Before I read the book I knew I was going to like it. But it was better than I expected. Is dint wish to pick it up because it’s the first, I always go crazy whenever I don’t have a second to back it up.I can’t wait for the claiming off the latest two men, wish to know how that will play out!
I never expected that I will like this book since I am not into that paranormal. I read this because I have much spare time but damn I loved it. I like how each guys are various from each other and how they interact with the mc. I hope in book 2, Atlas and Draven will also be Morgan's mates.
I stumbled across this book on release day...thank goodness! I loved everything about Academy of Assassins. Brutger brings the paranormal globe to life with her literary prowess. The amount of supernatural monsters in these pages is phenomenal, and the method their written into existence is exquisite! You really obtain to feel as if you're part of the story. Now on to the characters, amazing! The MC is an alpha female that you just wish to be! And the men? How healthy is it to be obsessed with fictional characters? Because I'm there! The storyline is compelling and just leaves you wanting more. This is my first read from Brutger and I will definitely be coming back for more.
From the author of the hilarious Eryth Online series comes a more mature slice of high school life LitRPG. The author describes it as Its Harry Potter meets Naruto with a small Dragon Ball Z and Dungeons and Dragons thrown in for fun. As odd as it may seem, that’s beautiful e novel combines a magical ninja academy story with competition style fighting and RPG descriptions of powers. It’s a fun read with lots of pop culture e only downside for me was the lack of definite RPG progression for most of this first novel. There’s lots of setup in this first episode of the different powers, their descriptions, how the school works, who’s who. But very small power growth occurs. It’s still an action filled adventure but I’d hoped to see some skills and powers evolve or grow ill, a amazing read that is a bit more mainstream than the author’s other e: 7 out of 10
there is a lot of pop culture in this book. Anime was everywhere. and not in a poor way. the story was following the MC as he started school. it also showed us his life getting to that point. the author did a amazing job describing things. at the begin as the MC is heading to school, i could practically see him jumping of buildings. it was fun. i will be reading the other books in the series. and i will go check out more work by this author.
A amazing story light hearted but do not like the political brought into my reading Obama is a praise word ,biden greatest vice President, trump is a curse word. Why can't writer's leave out the politics. I did like the story.
This application is fantastic. "SO amazing comment... but why has he given 4 stars?", you might be wondering right? The respond to your question is- in the seek option, the 10 second seek is fixed, it would have been better if we choose how much we wish to seek would have created this application THE BEST APP😊👍👍👍
! Sorry for asking stupid questions but I can't actually place +, %, * in the khan academy app!! Please would request u to support me out. Im using Redmi 4 and also the application crashes sometimes..!! Don't mind that but actually Im unable to place the following symbols
Indeed, a very education application for all individuals and with a dozens of things to LEARN! It is promoting academic success for all ages and also helping inspire children to being one of the giants that other children will rest on the shoulders of, in a figurative sense, of course.
It is an amazing application for home schoolers and self learners as the application enables you to learn difficult subjects easily and in an interesting way. I congratulate KA for coming up with their application as I have been learning with the YouTube channel from a lot of time. This makes studying and preparation simple and beautiful interesting.
Absolutely unbelievable education tool for self-learners. You can skip what you already know and focus on what really challenges you, and every lesson plan is simple to navigate. And the bookmark feature is super handy. Mr. Khan is a highly effective teacher, and I want I'd had one like him growing up. Amazing application and a truly world-class program FOR FREE!
This application has really a amazing sense. My teacher was absent before some day and I had to learn chemistry then I took support from 'KHAN ACADEMY' and I'v got 20 out of 20 in my chemistry exam. So thank you so much Khan Academy and create more educational apps like Khan Academy
No doubt bout the application , it's doing its job very well.. almost for the grades.. It's also have a section on electrical engineering but it would quite better if some more engineering lectures are available for various branches like mechanical... Hope u guys guys will be forward to that...
This is wonderfully unbelievable!😵😲when I use this application , I feel like I'm in the heaven of education! The most appreciated fact is that it's totally free and serves he highest quality even better than the costing programs..👍👌m in love with it...I would surely rate it million stars if I could..🤗Keep it up Khan academy ...
From math to history, Khan Academy is the best application to learn everything in easiest possible way. I hope the creator will also contain more topics and subjects that the application is missing. And latest not the least, thank you for such an initiative.

Perfect educational app! Currently studying degree level physiotherapy at university as a mature student, having been out of education for a long time! Extremely useful memory jogger! Chromecast feature would be good, to throw it on TV! Eyes are not what they used to be! Amazing work!
Amazing for offline content on-the-go. But needs to help SD card storage. A lot of offline content is hundreds of megabytes. Also, the UI lacks the mission concept so does not let children to progress as they would on the web version. It's completely free-form.
I was learning Grammar course by David from Khan Academy. Today I opened Khan Academy Application in my phone to explore it's not available.I looked up the course in Art and Humanities section and it's not there. I really wish to complete the course and please fix it as soon as possible.
I am incredibly greatful for khan academy and the help it has lent my studies. Amazing app, and website, I highly reccomend it. I used it for college level mathmatics supplemental lecture and practice. Chemistry and art appreciation and physics. all at the college level.
Sherlock Academy is a cute, readable, chapter book for elementary schoolers. The kids are (what else?) mysteriously chosen to attend the Academy. They must de-code their class schedule. The library rearranges itself. The teachers are all professionals in Sherlockian crime solving methods. There’s classes in codes and disguises, among others. Rollin E. Wilson and his mates begin their first year at school by arriving in a hansom cab. And, imagine! The playground is on the roof! How’s that for fun?Finally the day comes when there is a true live mystery to solve…..Shhhh no spoilers!Everything about this book is delightful. It would be a amazing silent read for the kid or a nice bedtime read-aloud. Sherlock Academy by F.C. Shaw
This book is an inspired tribute to Conan Doyle and to his most enduring creations _ Holmes, Watson and Moriarty. The book has every ingredient important to encourage younger (and, perhaps, older) readers to follow the master detective's exploits . Inserting quotes and instances from the 'real' Sherlock stories is a fine roundabout means of encouraging budding sleuths to 'investigate' further. I expect that this book will be the first of a lot of in a series.
This is a amazing book for young readers who are just getting into mystery. For those of us who have been reading for years, it's beautiful predictable, but still enjoyable to read. The characters are easy and the book isn't overly complicated. My 8-year old and 5-year old loved it and I loved reading it to them.
Sherlock Academy is great! I can see this being really amazing for grades 4-6--it would create a amazing read aloud in the classroom. It has a HARRY POTTER feel with a BAKER STREET background. The story takes you inside the globe of a Sherlock school set up in London to train children to be detectives. There is a lot of fandom that will obtain behind this with clues, zany teachers, and relatable protagonists. Looking forward to seeing the series expand!!!
