Star Wars: Knight Errant by John Jackson Miller
400 pp. Set a thousand years before the Star Wars films, this expanded universe novel follows the exploits of young Jedi Knight Kerra Holt as she makes her way through war-ravaged Sith space. Her misadventures take her from one power-mad Sith Lord to another as she attempts to find her way back to Republic-controlled space.
I'm not sure why I keep reading Star Wars novels, because they all have such terrible endings. They just end, with no real sense of closure for any of the characters. It's very frustrating. But Kerra is a likeable character, and the various Sith Lords are entertaining.
