I disagree, their will be a new series with the big three, but not nearly as DOOM AND GLOOM! as Fotj and more of ANH style adventure, Jaina Solo's new series looks like we may have a powerful, but not ludicrous lead and a female one at that, I am hoping to goes well.

And for the last time, Revan didn't 'use both sides of the force simultaneously', he very obviously achieved oneness with the force for a short period, this happens, he is not the force messiah, he achieved a moment of clarity after all the things that had happened in his life.

The description in Drew's novel when the light and dark rushed into him is pretty much exactly the same as the description given for Jacen Solo in the Vong series when he achieved oneness in the force.

Misconception debunked, for the millionth time in this forum.

Everybody seems to achieve oneness at one point in their lives. Whether in death or by some other means. But I wouldn't be surprised if some other character does the whole oneness thing. I think it should be Yoda. Who else knows about the Force more than he does?

I hope so. I'm getting tired of the doom and gloom. I get that it's Star Wars, but peace is something that you don't find anymore. I wouldn't mind having to deal with a few pirates or going on some big quest, but do we need Force immune creatures, giant bugs, and force gods all the time. It seems everybody has a bone to pick with the good guys.

Seriously! As much as I hated it at the time, at this point The Black Fleet Crisis has become the good old days.

Yeah, for sure. As much as I like the Post-ROTJ novels that focus on Jedi. I love the more military novels like the Thrawn books. They were very Star Warsy in my opinion.
