Cloak of Deception (Star Wars)Cloak of Deception by James Luceno

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book is set just prior to events in The Phantom Menace. A colleague loaned it to me after I mentioned how I wished there was more Qui Gon Jinn in the Star Wars universe, since Qui Gon is really the hero of this book--to the extent it has one.

I thought the book was better written (in terms of Standard English conventions) than many Star Wars and Star Trek books. In terms of plot and character development, however, it was not very good. Too much plot for too little book. It's really a political thriller, and those require more words and development to be really successful. This book, in fact, is about average length for this genre, and as such, really didn't have the required pages to do the job.

But, it does make The Phantom Menace make a bit more sense. I'll take that, and call it enough.
