Star Wars: Knight Errant

Kerra Holt is a solid heroine which it was able to side with. She fights against a galaxy of Sith, all conspiring against the Jedi as a whole, and against one another. We get to learn a little about her past, which the first series of comics dealt with, and we get to learn some of where she will go too.

I believe that the author’s use of prose is magnificent in this book. I’ve read his previous line of work, Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #1: Precipice, and all the while during those stories I kept thinking that this author had a longer novel within himself. And Knight Errant was it. I would very much like to see a continuation to this storyline with Kerra Holt and the other characters that we find in this book. I especially would like to see how the Sith Lords are dealt with, and the outcome of the Chargas line of characters.

The only thing that really disappointed me with this book was that Kerra never really “ended” any of her struggles with any of the Sith Lords she encountered. The antagonist in the beginning of the story isn’t exactly the same as the end. She goes through a transition of “bad guys”, never really finishing what she starts. But it does leave the story wide-open for another novel, which is what I am hoping for.

If you like the Old Republic Era of books and would like to see the universe as it was before Path of Destruction (Star Wars: Darth Bane, Book 1), go pickup this read. A true Star Wars fan will be thankful.
