Even with the issues with continuity I mentioned in another thread, I am really enjoying these books.

This isn't there first time we have had an evil character be the protagonist of a Star Wars book (although, I guess in the others it was more like co-protagonist), but it's really hard to write a character that the reader both hates (because they are so evil) and yet is totally invested in.

Karpyshyn might have screwed up the continuity, but he does know how to write and engaging story.

I enjoyed the first and third books, but I didn't like the second. We grew to care about Rain, but in that second book we watch as this little girl who's been through too much for a child is totally corrupted and twisted into evil. I can tolerate some descent into darkness for a story, but I hate it when they depict it happening to kids. That's just too dark and disgusting for me. Thankfully, by the time of the third book she's an adult and so that is no longer an issue.

She's an adult in the second book to, except for a handful of flashbacks. We do see the last of her innocence, or whatever, when she deals with Tomcat, go away. But her journey, especially in the last act, of fighting that last bit of good in her was interesting and well done.

She's actually a pretty nueanced character in book 2. I am just starting book 3, so I can't compare to that yet..
