Review by Bones, UK, 2010:

"The third instalment of the Jedi Prince series deals with Jabba the Hutt's father, Zorba, who seeks retribution against Princess Leia for the death of his son. In spite of this being the title and therefore, one would assume, the focus of the book, the majority of this book deals with "braze", a suspicious portmanteau for the ubiquitous "brown haze" of Cloud City. The story begins with a thoroughly embarrassing housewarming party for Han and his "sky-house" (a concept which I still have difficulty accepting) during which Han and Leia perform the "Space Pirate Boogie". There are several other incredibly jarring plot points throughout the novel, such as Lando gambling and subsequently losing his governorship of Cloud City in a game of sabacc with Zorba, and Ken's impossible naïveté which leads him to accept sweet baked goods laced with truth serum not once but twice, firstly from a giant sentient slug and secondly from a half-burned sociopath with three eyes - given that the authors repeatedly show Ken to be somewhat omniscient (he knows everything about everyone, it would seem, including top level Imperial secrets), he is remarkably moronic.
"Unfortunately this book is full of examples of unsavoury writing, from a crime lord that interrogates using cookies and milk to Lando and Zorba spit-shaking. This series hasn't deviated, as yet, from its meagre beginnings. The premise of Zorba's revenge would have been intriguing, had it been handled properly."

Rating: 0.5 / 5
