This was an amazing book about Tarkin and Vader being bros hunting down some criminals and it was so well done. Villain POV had the potential to really mess up, especially with Tarkin being so iconic. The backstories really did him just A the only thing was that it's slow at parts which is understandable being an Imperial officer and having a chain of command. It just wasn't my style in that regard. My favorite Star Wars novel after Dark Disciple because no one tops Ventress in my book. ( )

Após o golpe que deu fim à Ordem dos Cavaleiros Jedi, com os tempos da Velha República cada vez mais no passado, Wilhuff Tarkin é um oficial de confiança em um Império ainda jovem, e sua atual tarefa é gerir a construção de um empreendimento decisivo nos planos da nova ordem: a estação espacial conhecida como Estrela da Morte. A mando do próprio Imperador, o oficial divide com o perturbador Darth Vader a liderança de uma força-tarefa dedicada a encontrar e deter os responsáveis pelo atentado.

Interesting, but boring and lifeless. ( )

An enjoyable story about an iconic character. Definitely worth reading if you were ever enthralled by the creepiness and tenacity of Tarkin from the original Star Wars.

Structurally, the novel does a good job of going back and forth between Tarkin's relatively new assignment as the director of a secret project to build a new weapons platform (wonder what THAT could be…) and his coming of age on the Outer Rim planet of Eriadu. Without giving spoilers, I will say that I enjoyed how the two storylines merged at the end, with Tarkin both embracing the lessons he learned as a teenager and young man while still being able to move out of his provincial homeworld and gain glory and renown for both himself and those upon whom his success reflects. Not that they were good lessons, per se, but they certainly were…effective.

Luceno is a competent storyteller and craftsman. There were handful of spots where the wording might have been refined (e.g., one sentence that read something like "Tarkin's followers followed him…"), but on the whole I like what he did with the story. He was able to keep the pace flowing, while still offering insight into Tarkin's mindset and thought process. There was one point where I thought the depiction of Tarkin might be a little too Thrawn-like (from the EU books – I still haven't read the newer canon [b: Thrawn|31140332|Thrawn (Star Wars Thrawn, #1)|Timothy Zahn|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1468787895s/31140332.jpg|51766424]), strategically speaking, but I am happy to say that Luceno maintains the essence of who Tarkin is throughout the story.

The only book I have read by Luceno before is [b: Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel|29662066|Catalyst A Rogue One Novel (Star Wars)|James Luceno|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1509729394s/29662066.jpg|50028005]. I would recommend reading Tarkin before that one, given some obvious (at least, after you read them) connections, rather than in the order I did. ( )

[a:James Luceno|9346|James Luceno|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1215550105p2/9346.jpg] did an excellent job here. He took a mostly underdeveloped character and provided a credible and intriguing backstory that aligns, and perhaps explains the little glimpses of the man we saw and hated in the original Star Wars.

I appreciate Grand Moff Tarkin as a character more after going through this book.

But perhaps the real nugget in this book is the exploration of the Emperor. I did not expect to get as much insight into his backstory, his motivations and goals as Luceno provided here. This was a rather pleasant surprise.

This book still doesn't reach the heights [a:Timothy Zahn|12479|Timothy Zahn|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1215545810p2/12479.jpg]'s [b:Thrawn|31140332|Thrawn (Star Wars Thrawn, #1)|Timothy Zahn|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1468787895s/31140332.jpg|51766424] did, but in my opinion it surpassed [b:Lords of the Sith|22012290|Lords of the Sith (Star Wars)|Paul S. Kemp|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1398457143s/22012290.jpg|41325693] in terms of tension and a compelling narrative.

It deserves that 4 star rating. ( )
