I would like to say that it must be hard writing an alternative version of ANY book.David Gremillion did a great job on this one,and if you are a Star Wars fan you should really give it a try!!
There are some new characters that fit perfectly in the story and some of the old are very much improved!!
So,if you are a Star Wars fan and always felt The Phantom Menace was not quite satisfying give it a try and you won't be disappointed this time!
