Tarkin by James Luceno

Luceno has written these tie-along Star Wars books for a while. For the most part, they are fun to read  to add a little background to what you see in the movies.

This one tells a little story about the Grand Moff who defy's the evacuation order at the end of Episode IV. It takes place a few years after Episode III so you have Tarkin interacting with an excited Emperor and a minted Darth Vader.

Some of the background story might be a little boring to anyone other than the strictly die-hard fans. (those who have entire rooms devoted to the mythology) But whenever the familiar characters appear on the page, I was sinking into my reading chair and not going anywhere.

Luceno is a talented writer. I enjoy his Star Wars books.

Look forward to others.
