    1. This books failed to draw me in at all. I ended up skimming it to get the gist of the story. I would have thrown in aside all together if it wasn't for my desire to read all Star Wars novels. Consider this one "read". It reads like a video game, complete with pointless side quests and encounters that don't advance the story. Dusque had far too many wild animal encounters, even if you consider her job studying alien lifeforms. The surprise at the end of the book was hardly surprising. You were ju [...]


    2. Wow. If I thought "Death Star" was bad. This was the worst book I've read in a long, long time. Pointless side plots, telegraphed "plot twists," cardboard characters, worthless cameos, stereotyped female romantic desires just a horrendously bad piece of fan-fiction. Can't believe I finished it.


    3. I didn't realize this would be my first romance novel. Classic horribleness courtesy of pp 155-6: "As Finn started to speak, Dusque held up a hand and placed it against his lips. 'It's all right, I understand.'" Oy


    4. Really really loved this book, it was just like being in game again, all the descriptions of the planets and plant and animal life was fantastic - nyms map quest was even in there!!! The ending of the book had me tearing up - what a journey - loved it :)



    5. Well, I thought I had hit rock bottom in the Expanded Universe with the L. Neil Smith books, but little did I know the worst was yet to come. The storytelling here is about as subtle as a brick to the head, and as exciting as watching Two-and-a-Half Men. It's terrible.Neither the story nor the characters (or even the plot) in this book are that deep. It's part of the Star Wars Galaxies computer game, and having not played the game, I don't know how much of the story might relate to the game. I [...]


    6. I never got to play Galaxies. But I enjoyed this. Following Dusques story as she works through being thrown out of her comfort zone, forced to ask herself hard question about what she believes, what she is willing to risk and discovering she has a hero inside is like getting a glimpse at what it might be like to be in her position. She has to question everything she knows. It didn't hurt that she was into animal research and I love animals, this is a person I'd relate to if I could live in that [...]


    7. This was actually a good book for being based off a video game. I liked that it had a separate story arc than the heroes stories and just used them to set the time line. Basically this story is about an Imperial biologist, Dusque, that is approached by an Alliance operative to assist the rebellion with finding a Holocron that was abandoned on Dantooine. Dantooine turns out to have a lot of dangerous animals that having a biologist around to help navigate is a very good idea. Her Rebel operative, [...]


    8. Najchętniej dałbym temu czemuś ocenę ujemną. Potwór ten jest tragicznie zły w całej swej okazałości. Okładka machnięta na szybko, między jednym a drugim łykiem porannej kawy. Historia nudna, od samego początku przewidywalna, ciągnięta wyraźnie na siłę. Wątki poszczególnych postaci, ich cele i motywację są mniej ciekawe od historii gwoździa rdzewiejącego w ścianie. Nazwanie tego kiepskim fanfikiem (tak to się zapisuje?) to wciąż pochwałaWszystkich odpowiedzialnych z [...]


    9. The good guys aren't always the good guys and the bad guys aren't always the bad guys; and choosing sides isn't always so cut and dried. A good read about choices and their consequences not always seeming to be as they appear.Recommended.


    10. This was based on the old "Star Wars Galaxies" MMORPG. It wasn't very good and now that the game is no longer being maintained it's kind of pointless to read it now.Give this one a pass.


    11. The premise: ganked from BN: Enter the explosive universe of the exciting online game STAR WARS GALAXIES: AN EMPIRE DIVIDED!It is a time of great turmoil. The oppressive Empire is close to seizing complete control of the galaxy. The ragtag guerrilla army of the Rebel Alliance fights on, striking wherever it can, but now something has come to light that could spell certain doom. Hidden in the Jedi ruins of Dantooine is a Holocron containing a list of high-level Rebel sympathizers. If that list we [...]

    13. I'm rereading this for the first time since shortly after it came out.It makes me chuckle to see Inquisitors (even though I know they existed in Legendsd even though they really don't play a large role here) hunting down and destroying Force sensitives. It's even more humorous to have a character named Finn [Darktrin]. Both the Empire and the Rebels are aware of a holocron on Dantooine with the names of Rebel sympathizers on it. The holocron doesn't come into play until the last 90 pages though, [...]


    14. Not gonna lie, I've been avoiding this book for years. I didn't like the cheesy cover, I was ambivalent about SWG being a legitimate source of canon, and seriously, what kind of name is "Voronica"? But if a book that disappoints me can fill me with more passionate hatred than one I simply didn't like, a book that takes me by surprise and impresses me deserves all the love I can throw its way!I was initially skeptical of a protagonist named "Dusque Mistflier," but the book is absolutely worth fou [...]


    15. This is not Baldur's Gate 1 or 2. Thank your lucky stars! For fans of the on-line role playing game, Star Wars Galaxies (SWG), this is a neat little novel. I found the plot to be interesting, mostly because I have been playing SWG since it went retail and I thought it interesting to see how many of the game devices were woven into the plot. It's almost as if they developed a list of game characters, planets, professions, and beasts and see how many of them they could get into the book. They even [...]


    16. Not expecting much from a book based on a game based on a film. But I have a bacterial lung infection which is stopping me sleep so I am reading the equivalent of what Pringles is to foodd the chest infection turned into mild pneumonia and now something else but this book was a faithful companion. In fact, much like a dog, didn't have much to offer but what it offered was simple and pleasurable.I enjoyed the plot, the characters were no more than you would expect but no less than you would deman [...]


    17. This story occurs between the first two Star Wars movies. While Leia, Luke, Han, and Chewie have bit parts, the plot revolves around Dusque Mistflier, an Imperial bioengineer. While on assignment to gather specimens, Dusque is recruited by Rebel spy, Finn Darktrin, to recover a list of Rebel agents. However, all is not what it seems. While the list is recovered, it is not without both physical and emotional cost to Dusque. The book is an easy read. The plot is not complicated, and many of the pl [...]


    18. Dusque Mistflier is just an Imperial bioengineer cataloging various life forms on various planets. Finn Darktrin is a Rebel sympathizer who needs her help. When Dusque's partner is executed for being reported as being a Rebel sympathizer, Dusque joins Finn in his hunt for a lost Rebel Alliance holocron. As they are being chased by the Imperials, they are saved by the Rebels. Will they locate the holocron which contains names of Rebel agents before the Imperials find it? A double cross is in stor [...]


    19. Predictable, cookie cutter Star Wars. There are a few cameos of "the big three" to keep interest up but the overall book was just a quick Star Wars fix. It would be interesting to see the main character come back in a tertiary role later on or to know what eventually happens to Finn. These would probably be as background to some one else's story which is about what they deserve.Overall, a mediocre effort, but not a painful read for Star Wars fans who want to read the complete collection.


    20. I was expecting to see more of Luke and the gang, but they only had very brief appearances in the story. The story was all wrapped up in Dusk and Finn. Not to bad, but not great. It gets really annoying at times with all the talk about the different creatures that the couple run into. The ending was really different than I expected. On to the next one in the lineup- 'Choices Of One', which is the sequel to 'Alliance'.


    21. I felt torn reading this book. Some of it was very good and some of it was totally forgettable. It's a shame that they couldn't do a little more with non-continuity characters, take them wherever they wanted to. And stop explaining things step by step to me. I know it's a book for gamers but that doesn't mean it has to be dumbed down.


    22. I thought The Ruins of Dantooine was alright. I played Star Wars Galaxies often during the time this book was released and loved the game at the time. It was cool to read about different places in the game, but the story was a little lacking and I was rather confused by the ending.


    23. an easy to read book that fills you with pleasure. the only reason this isn't higher ranked as they took some items from other books which invalidates some of the books that are written first. I sad to say that those parts kind of ruined it for me.


    24. A by the numbers Star Wars novel, fairly easy and quick read. The main two characters were interesting but much more could have been made of them. There didn't feel like there was too much of a threat for the characters, but it was enjoyable enough to keep me reading.






    25. Nice story embedded into the happenings after Episode 4. Lots of guest appearances. Some things are telegraphed, though
