Conquest (Edge of Victory, #1) - Greg Keyes I loved the fact that this book was an Anakin Solo-centric installment to the New Jedi Order series, but as much as I wanted to like it, Conquest just didn't do it for me.

Perhaps it had to do with Anakin's allegiance with one of the Yuuzhan Vong at the end; for some reason, it never sat right with me. I found the relationship somewhat unrealistic, and some of their conversations seemed forced, to be sure.

Also, while I appreciated the chance to get to know Anakin better, I acutely felt the absence of the other characters, which left a tangible void. I found myself missing them -- Han and Leia most of all -- and God forbid, even Jacen Solo.
