I don't really know why, but i can't really get into that book. I think i've started reading it like nearly 1 year ago and still haven't finished it, while i read both Revan and Annihilation in 1-2 days.
Maybe i just don't really care about the Deceived characters and so don't really care about the story surrounding them.

Can't talk about Darth Bane and Plagueis as i haven't read any of these though.
In need of more Arcann, Aric, Torian, Vector, and a lot, lot, lot more Theron.
There's nothing like geting too much Theron

Best novel, Shadow of the Empire. Takes place in between Esb and Rotj. Luke, Leia, Lando, and Chewie try to rescue Han from Boba Fett before he delivers him to Jabba. The leader of the Blacksun, Prince Xizor is introduced. As well as Dash Rendar another smuggler. Great back story to Rotj.

The X-Wing books are must reads. Ditto for Thrawn and Darth Bane. These ones are almost universally liked I've found.

One that is very controversial is the Republic Commando books. While I enjoyed them up to but not including Order 66 (the "we universally never liked you from the beginning" argument was incredibly weak), but I always considered them as more of a fan fiction and not part of the overall continuity due to their frequent inconsistency with the prior lore. Not big things typically, but enough where it just felt wrong.

Revan, Deceived, Fatal Alliance and Annihilation.

Revan probably being the most relevant, and most controversial.

i've gone through Revan, it was mostly a snooze fest until about the last few chapters where it picks up. Despite some of the characters being in the book, they seemed mostly like throwaway characters like Nyriss and Sechel. Murtog was anonymous throughout the book.

i'm gonna look into Deceived next, see what that is about.

At least the first Thrawn Trilogy, of course.

I've not been reading SW novels for so many years now I just didn't know that there was a second Trilogy ?
In fact, I stopped reading ... I think it was 10 years ago or so. The Yuuzan Vong invasion was a serious blow to my "headcanon". I stopped there.

Of the books trhere remained only a few in my bookshelf ... The Young Jedi Knights series is one of them. I loved it, because it was something like - non-war , so to say. Seeing a new generation of Jedi coming was something I greatly looked forward. And it was so ... different. Basically non-war, so to say.
