    1 thought on “The Swarm War”

    1. Troy Denning’s “The Swarm War” is Book 3 in the Dark Nest trilogy, a trilogy which progressively went downhill for me, as it devolved into a jumbled mess of convoluted political ramblings, characters that never really did anything, and references to previous books/films in the Star Wars Expanded Universe that did nothing to enhance or add relevance to the current story.It’s a huge disappointment, primarily because I like Denning as a writer. His novel “Star By Star” was actually one [...]

    2. If this book was ever going to be a movie, Michael Bay would be its directorSerious Plot Summary:The Killiks are at war with the Chiss, and Luke, Han, Leia, and all the rest still need to get rid of Raynar Thul and Lomi Plo.Very Snarky Plot Summary:Book 1:Young Jedi Knights: OMG! Bugz! Coolz!Jacen: WhateverLuke: HmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmLeia: HmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmMara: HmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmHan: Yuck, Bugz.*Jedi kill bad Bugz, give good Bugz new home*Book 2:Young Jedi Knights: Bugz iz good, Chiss iz bad.Jaina & [...]

    3. I've observed that "-ian" Star Wars fans seem to find helpful reviews for SW books that have two qualities: a positive rating/review, and a lot of content detail. Unfortunately, this has neither, but I will take my chances for the sake of completeness (which ironically should appeal to fans), b/c I reviewed the first two books in this series. If you didn't start this series, and you have other SW books you are considering starting now instead, READ THOSE FIRST. If this trilogy had stayed as good [...]

    4. A decent conclusion to the Dark Nest Trilogy in which Luke takes full control of the Jedi Order (naming himself Grand Master) and Leia puts in a solid year of Jedi training and finally becomes a powerful Jedi in her own right. Jaina and Zekk remain with the Killiks in helping their war with the Chiss, while Luke, Mara and Jacen move to cut off the "head" of the Chilliks by trying to kill Lomi Plo, the Dark Jedi who formed the Killik Dark Nest as well as kill or remove from power UnuThul, who is [...]

    5. Compared to the two previous books in the trilogy, this one was a bit of a disappointment. I went into the Dark Nest Trilogy with an open mind and, while I tend to agree with Han when it comes to bugs, have been more or less pleased with the events that have taken place. What would have really made the trilogy complete and satisfying was an explosive, meaningful ending that would tie everything together and leave the reader with expressions of awe. The Swarm War, however, while not terrible, fai [...]

    6. The premise: ganked from BN: In the explosive conclusion to the Dark Nest trilogy, Luke Skywalker summons the heroes of the New Jedi Order from near and far, as the Star Wars galaxy teeters on the edge of eternal war. Yet even the combined powers of the formidable Jedi may not be enough to vanquish the deadly perils confronting them.The Chiss-Killik border war is threatening to engulf the entire galaxy and raising the awful specter of Killiks sweeping across space to absorb all living creatures [...]

    7. When I reread this in 2014, I gave it 4 stars. What I enjoyed about it then irked me in the 2017 reread.Jaina and Zekk's separation as Joiners is noticed from the start. Jaina's love for Jag is enough to make her stop thinking of "us" and it broke the mind-meld for a moment. But Jag vs. Jaina and Zekk is creepy and how Jag is treated is very sad.Also, being a Joiner feeds Jaina's battle rage.Just a peeve of mine: I think that when "Jedi order" is written, the 'O' should be capitalized.The Squibs [...]

    8. LOL INO WE HATE TROY DENNING HERE, BUT I KIND OF LIKE THAT THE SWARM WAR HAD JACEN/TENEL KA HAVING BABBIES AND JAINA AND ZEKK SOULBONDING. /o\LOL IT'S BEEN A WHILE, BUT IN THE SWARM WAR, IIRC, THEY FIGHT A TELEPATHIC HIVE SPECIES WHO CAN INFECT YOUR BRAINS. JAINA AND ZEKK BECOME INFECTED IN THAT WAY AND SHARE ALL OF THEIR THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS AND HAVE TO BE TOGETHER MOAST OF THE TIME BECAUSE IT FEELS WRONG WHEN THEY'RE APART. I SEEM TO RECALL THAT THERE'S ONE DOINT WHERE JAINA FEELS WEIRD ABOUT [...]

    9. An intersting conclusion to the kilik crisis. For all the trouble the dark nest caused the galaxy they got what they deserved. I'm looking forward to filling in morenof the post NJO galactic adventures.

    10. This was a great ending to what was a great trilogy in the Star Wars expanded universe. The most fascinating aspect of the book (and series in general) was probably the many different opinions each of the Jedi Knights had concerning the Killick Invasion; for instance, Jaina Solo was helping the Killicks against the Chiss while her twin brother, Jacen, was determined to kill the Head of the Killick Colony. Luke, Leia & Han often found themselves conflicted as to what to do, but managed to com [...]

    11. NOTE: This is a review of the entire trilogy, not just the last book.The Good: Fresh off the successful New Jedi Order series, this novel trilogy has some very interesting villains and plenty of great plot twists. The flashback scenes from the prequel film trilogy are well-done and appropriately dramatized, and the heroes are admirable.The Bad: Nothing too big to complain about.Content Concerns:• Sex: Some romance; a sexual discussion; an implied affair. 3/5• Nudity: None. 5/5• Language: I [...]

    12. Alright, you know what, I've been more than nice enough throughout this trilogy (Yes 2 stars is nice.) but getting to the end of this drawn out series and thinking "Thank the Force, it's over" is something I haven't felt in a while (I'm looking at you Darth Plagueis).Anyways, it's the same as the other books. The characters feel off, there isn't really any redeeming moments like Jacen had in Book 2, bugs bugs bugs, it all sort of felt like a bad action movie where the characters are afterthought [...]

    13. Main plot line: sub par. I just didn't care about the Kiliks, and I was quite frankly confused by this whole nest identity business. I also didn't think the usual politicking that takes place in these novels was especially intriguing or intense. Han and Leia's characters in particular are undergoing a transformation that seems logical, but Luke's is not.I think the one bright spot in this series is Jacen Solo. Quite frankly, I was tempted to skip around the book to find chapters dealing with him [...]

    14. Although I hadn't realized this was the third book of a small trilogy in the vast array of Star Wars books it was still enjoyable. One of the annoying things about Star Wars books is that they have different authors,good and bad, often switching between volumes. The author of this particular work , Troy Denning, has a very descriptive and engaging style of writing which effectively conveys the story. It is also frequently delightful to imagine words that you must take out of context in your head [...]

    15. In a trilogy that appeared to be veering off from the Star Wars course this book was a breath of fresh air. Whilst, once more, this is a book I would solely recommend to Star Wars fans, it does however remain more faithful to the Star Wars principles; clear character motivations, cheesy one liners, punchier dialog and fast paced action.Previous criticisms of lacking simpler "bad guy(s)" remain and this is the crux of its drawbacks.I remain unconvinced that the Star Wars universe is the best loca [...]

    16. Star Wars, with bugs. I'm pretty much a Star Wars nerd so I enjoyed these, but they were definitely a little outside the box. They were not my favorite. If you are a serious fan I would pick them up because the next series (Legacy of the Force) builds off of what happens here. If you are a casual fan, just find a summary on before moving on. Troy Denning, of course, is a wonderful author and everything here is well written, paced expertly, etc. I'm just not a fan of the story itself.

    17. An anti-climatic end to a drawn out saga. I agree with the others who said this trilogy should have been condensed into a single book with the key word being "condensed". Of course, for all the fact that it was drawn out it created the odd moment of reader fear where you realize there are only 20 pages left and there conflict hasn't been resolved. Translation: they're not really going to explain the ramifications, it's just going to be over and life goes on.

    18. I have always hated Episode III and this book having Artoo replay Padme and Anakin's conversations made them seem even more retarded than the first time I heard them. Didn't like how Jaina was portrayed throughout the Dark Nest series. Jacen is still an arrogant smug asshole and I don't expect that to change. Needed more Jag, he's the only part I liked about Swarm War.I wish they'd move away from Luke, Mara, Leia and Han I'm kind of sick of reading about them.

    19. This book kept me in a mind explosion. Every turn, Every page, everytime i thought i could put the book down i needed to read more until i finished. The story line takes off from the origianl trilogy. It made it easier to put two and two together in order to understand the whole story, and it has all the same characters and didn't take away from the original trilogy, so it made the story easy, and it felt like a add on, rather than a new story and a new beginning.

    20. This trilogy is creepy and action packed all at once. The bugs were written so well, you got chills down your spine every time they were mentioned. I loved the new way that the characters were changed and altered by their interaction with the bugs. My favorite part of this series was looking at how the Jedi Order changed, and what if anything Mara had to do with Luke's parents. I also liked how this series tied up loose ends from the New Jedi Order books.

    21. This series took the New Jedi Order cast to an all to familiar level. I felt that the story was engaging, the characters well developed and the story line quick, but it fell into the same Starwars trap. While a New Jedi Order challenged the status quo and soared to new heights, this story failed to live up to the gigantic bar that its predecessor set.

    22. This was an excellent conclusion to a very imaginative adventure. The use of the various characters involved and their different story arcs all come to a very satisfying conclusion. If you are only interested in trying out the Star Wars Expanded Universe you could do much worse than reading this trilogy.

    23. The best part of any Star Wars story on cd is the special sound effects. Unfortunately, that is the only part of this story that held any interest for me. Not interested in the bugs or their mind powers, just want jaina rescued so we can move on to the next part of the story arc. Put off this one because I knew it would be horrible as I didn't like the first two so much in the story arc.

    24. The series was a pretty fun read overall. However, in focusing so much on battle melds and hive minds, a lot of descriptions seemed repetitive, and it ended a little abruptly for my taste. Still, not a bad way to revisit a beloved universe (though these events are about to be booted from canon, but that doesn't make it less enjoyable).

    25. It was definitely the best of the three books. But it left out a lot of detail and skipped around which left me confused every time I started a new chapter. They tried to summarize events that happened in between chapters instead of actually writing a chapter about it. But it was a solid book despite its rushed nature.

    26. Decided to revisit this series, which I nerdily loved in high school since I found them at a used sale for $1 each. I found the Dark Nest trilogy brutally boring, though, and very drawn out. I might still try the Legacy of the Force books but if it continues in this vein, I likely won't finish them.

    27. I can only feel relief that this trilogy is over. What a mess. It has pretty good ideas, but they are overrun by bad characterization, ridiculous dialogue, and bad references to Episode III. I honestly struggled more to read these 3 books than the 19 books of the New Jedi Orderat's gotta mean something.

    28. i like the book i just read they had to fight ex boyfriends a friends in this star wars book.was not a whole lot about bugs all the time. 100th Star wars book i read. the whole series give it 4 out of five.

    29. The last book in the Dark Nest trilogy, it's on par with its predecessors. Part way into this book, you will realize that most of it (and the series) was a set up for the Legacy of the Force series. Still worth reading for Dennings's good character work and excellent action scenes.
