I would give Star Wars Maul Lockdown by Joe Schreiber about two and a half stars I decided to round down This is the story of Darth Maul everyone s favorite underused Sith in an insidious space station prison known as Cog Hive Seven where the inmates are pitted against each other in violent battles that the galaxy gambles onI have not read the other Star Wars books by this authoras they seem to be about adding zombies to the Star Wars universe The Star Wars universe is in enough trouble from JJ Abrams I didn t see the need for zombies as wellWhy is Maul in this prison Orders from Darth Sidious And for that same reason Maul must pretend to be a highly skilled mercenary and not a Force user His goal To find an elusive arms dealer named Iram Radiue who is hiding and operating within the prisonSomost of the book is spent trying to distract us from the fact that if Maul could use his powers his mission would probably be completed in no time at all We get a lot of Maul fighting in battles to the death with various beasties and inmates for the pleasure of the galactic gamblers This is also how Jabba the Hutt gets involved As in he wants a piece of the action at Cog Hive Seven and is willing to do awful things to get itMeanwhile we re supposed to ignore the fact that Maul is gaining fame as a fighter all through the underworld and yet neither Darth Sidious aka kindly Senator Palpatine nor his master Darth Plagueis whose cat and mouse game with each other is interesting to me than most of the actions in the prison make any mention of the fact that their Sith apprentice is gaining notoriety And it makes the fact that the Jedi couldn t identify him from some kind of database later on somewhat hard to believeThe search for Iram Radiue which involves Maul and several different characters in the prison takes up most of Maul s time and effort That is in between death battles and gang wars and long distance abuse from his master Anyway the uest to find Radiue is a long one A far too long one It s a path piled high with red herrings and even a twist straight out of Scooby Doo I would have gotten away with it if it wasn t for that meddling Sith dudeI can see the elevator pitch for this book going well Darth Maul trapped in a prison and fighting the scum of the universe Might even make a good video game But as a novel it falls flat for a number of reasonsHere s the main problem Darth Maul is a cipher We know very little about him It s hard to identify with a main character who doesn t really think too much or speak too much just acts Yes he s a tattooed badass Sith who died way too soonwhile Jar Jar Binks lives onsigh but he never elevated much from the status of cool minion Meaning he has no real personality other than he likes to kill stuff and do his master s biddingSo the author has to fill the book with people we re supposed to care aboutthe sexyvicious warden and her weird tech genius brotherthe cast of uirky andor brutal inmatesthe innocent father and son duo just trying to get byand the guest stars Sidious Plagueis Jabba Komari Vosa Plus don t forget the giant icky worm that eats all the losers of the brutal fights And so onDarth Maul s uest to find Iram Radiue is so long and involved that it almost takes on an existential uality Almost Is Radiue real Is it all just a test Is Radiue even in the prison And on and on and on There is a huge list of suspects and no easy way to filter them out except when Maul kills them As a reader though it becomes a wearying intellectual exercise after a while By the time the mystery of Iram Radiue is solved it s hard to careSothenin the third actfallen Jedi Komari Vosa she s not a Sith just a psychopath shows up to try and make things interesting It does work after a fashion Komari does add a definite element of interest to the tale Yet bringing in a new character late in a novel with no real introduction is not the best idea Having her around earlier probably not possible though given the structure of the story might have made this a interesting tale And there s the ending What ending The book just sort of runs out of steam without much in the way of resolution I kept looking for another chapter but there wasn t one SighI give this book two stars two and a half in my head rounded down because the writing isn t bad and the book is fun and engaging in some parts Yet the thinking behind the writing is seriously flawed and doesn t hold up to much scrutiny But if you re looking for a lot of action and not much in the way of plot okay there s a lot of plotjust not a lot of good plot and are a fan of Sith doing Sith y things then Maul Lockdown may be for you

Maul sat motionless observing everything around him without giving any indication that he was doing so Although his peripheral vision still hadn t fully recovered from last night s attack he saw enough to realize that he had become the current object of everyone s attention Even the guards up in the catwalks overhead seemed to have gone on high alert each with one hand on their blasters the other resting on the small flat consoles that they wore on their belts From both inmates and guards Maul could smell a certain unmistakable commingling of fear desperation and the grinding monotony of paranoia that emerged when living things were penned up together in close uarters for indefinite spans of timeJoe Schreiber s Star Wars novels have been a mixed bag for me While I fucking loved the brutally bonkers Death Troopers I thought the preuel story of Red Harvest wasn t as strong Both horror books are gory as fuck which is clearly a signature of Schreiber s I m happy to report that Maul Lockdown was closer in uality to that of Death Troopers The action did not let upTaking place a year before the events in Episode I The Phantom Menace Maul Lockdown is set inside Cog Hive Seven a high security space prison where inmates are matched against each other as gladiator style combatants So basically it s like some kind of intergalactic Fight Club Needless to say things get bloody uicklyDarth Sidious has sent Maul in undercover to the prison as a mercenary named Jagannath aka the Tooth He must find the mysterious Iram Radiue a weapons merchant in order to purchase a nuclear device that will be delivered to Bando Gora Maul ever loyal to Master Sidious is instructed to refrain from using the Force Rather he must rely on his skills to not only complete the mission but to surviveDuring his stay in the prison system Maul meets several characters that will hinder and help him along on his mission One such individual is the powerful crime lord Jabba the Hutt It was as if the door to an asylum had been flung open inside his skull allowing a wave of incoherent screams individual cries and desperate fragmented phrases into his mind Wampas Wolf Worms bloody gore underwater battles a cannibal gang and breathless action seuences Lockdown was pure unadulturated fun Did I mention that Maul rips out a heart and crushes it with his bare hands Because he doesThis is the Star Wars prison movie you didn t know you neededMay the Force be with you

Free download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¶ Joe Schreiber Free read ↠ Maul Author Joe Schreiber 105 Newest contender in this savage arena as demonic to behold as he is deadly to challenge is fighting for than just survival His do or die mission for the dark masters he serves is to capture the ultimate weapon an object capable of obliterating the Jedi and conuering the galaxySith lords Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious are determined to possess the prize. Oh was this awful Just wretched Ordinarily I would ve just pitched this after the first few chapters but sometimes you just gotta watch the train crashThe problem with making villains the protagonists of novels is that you re supposed to identify with the protagonist He or she is the window through which you are experiencing the universe When that character is a horn crowned Sith Lord with no personality and no emotional range outside of unconvincing rage that becomes a bit of a liabilityWhen said Sith Lord is placed upon a ridiculous deep space prison ship with ridiculous physics ridiculous regular deathmatches and a ridiculous nigh omniscient arms dealer it s just too much to takeBut what I really take issue with in this novel is that the author apparently has no idea how a sports book works making the whole gambling on deathmatches part of the novel beyond ridiculous Prepare ship for ludicrous speedThere s also a giant blind psychic worm that eats everyone On a spaceshipJoe Schreiber actually did okay with Death Troopers and somewhat less so with Red Harvest He did not acuit himself well with Star Wars Maul LockdownAvoid like a starving wampa
