Suicide by Star Wars Apocrypha: Another Forgettable TOR Tie-In

Fatal Alliance

Author: Sean Williams

Medium: Novel

Publication Date: July 2010

Timeline Placement: 3,643 BBY

Series: The Old Republic

From across the galaxy they’ve come: agents of both the Republic and the Sith Empire, an investigating Jedi Padawan, an ex-trooper drummed out of the Republic’s elite Blackstar Squad, and a mysterious Mandalorian. An extraordinary auction has drawn them all together—in quest of a prize only one can claim. Each is prepared to do what he must to possess the treasure, whose value may be the wealth of a world itself. None intend to leave empty-handed. All have secrets, desires, and schemes. And nothing could ever unite them as allies—except the truth about the deadly danger of the object they covet. But can Sith and Jedi, Republic and Empire—enemies for millennia—join as one against the certain doom of the galaxy?

Just kidding, Fatal Alliance isn’t that bad. Actually it’s not really bad at all. Nor is it good. It’s . . . fine. The characters are . . . fine. The plot is . . . fine. The writing is . . . fine. The whole book is thoroughly mediocre.

(Suicide by Star Wars Apocrypha is a foolish attempt to examine the entirety of the now decanonized Star Wars Expanded Universe and quantify its assorted artistic merits. Read the introduction. Check out the archives.)
