Tarkin by James Luceno

by James Luceno

This book serves as something of a "reboot" of one of Star Wars' more iconic characters: Wilhuff Tarkin. It's an interesting and fun read in that you come to understand why Tarkin is the way he is. Luceno crafts Tarkin as both protagonist and antagonist in this well-paced and fairly compact story. -- recommended by Corey G. - Gere Branch Library [ see Corey's Reviewer Profile and more of his reviews ]

[Also available in book-on-cd format.]
