Comments Patterns of Force

  • Jerry

    I've said this countless times in my reviews of series books, but it applies to this one as well: Those readers who enjoyed the previous Star Wars: Coruscant Nights space opera whodunits will find plenty to like about Patterns of Forcebut, if you didn't care for novels one and two, then you probably shouldn't read this. Additionally, it was interesting to see droids that were more human emotionally, as well as to see a between-trilogies Darth Vader.


  • Scott Rhee

    Among the many talented authors within the Star Wars Expanded Universe, Michael Reaves is quickly shaping up to be my favorite. His third novel in the Coruscant Nights series (it was, up until recently with the publication of his fourth book "The Last Jedi", a trilogy), "Patterns of Force" marks a joyous return of Jax Pavan, one of the few (he fears the only) surviving Jedi Knights of the Purge who "moonlights" as a private detective/gun for hire on the dark streets of Coruscant, now overrun wit [...]

    This review can also be found at my blog, leaf and page.Okay, so this book might have earned a third star if it weren't for the extremely distracting fact that Michael Reaves cannot count. His timeline is extremely muddled and some of it makes no sense. Normally I let things slide, especially if they're one-time errors, but this was so constant and frustrating that it really pulled me out of the book.Though I will note that some of this carries over from the previous books, let's look at some ex [...]

    "If Jax commits himself and his team to Palpatine's assassination, then what distinguishes him from those who represent the dark side?" So I was really impressed by number 1, disappointed by number 2, and ready to see how the series would end. So I embarked on the third and final chapter! Jax Pavan, Den Dhur, I-Five, and Rhinann return in our final installment with the lovely Dejah Duare on what could be their final mission. A rogue Force adept roams the underworld, threatening to blow their ope [...]

    Years ago Michael Reaves wrote a book about a janitor working in the Jedi temple who discovers the existence of the Sith. Darth Maul sets out on a quest to destroy that janitor and his droid. To anybody familiar with Darth Maul there is no doubting the conclusion. Reaves brought it all together well and made it feel, at times, like perhaps there was a small chance that some of the characters might live.Well, they don't.But the janitor, Lorn Pavan, had a son named Jax who just happened to be Forc [...]

    Michael Reaves’ third entry in his “Coruscant Nights” series gets back to what made the first book work so well, and away from all the things that hindered book two. Gone is the slavish, checklist-list like fixation with hitting all the noir tropes, and present again is the character driven plot that evolves naturally from the relationships of Reaves’ ragtag band of misfits.Del Rey seems to have been conducting an interesting little experiment over the last few years, attempting to cross [...]


  • Ron

    Okay ending to a decent series. Tied up the major loose ends satisfactorily. Reaves has the bad habit of introducing a "bum of the month" bad guy and saving Vader for cardboard cutout cameo appearances. Such is the bane of fan fiction. However, he did leave himself plenty of hooks for a future series.Quibble: the cover art shows a light saber duel between Vader and Javan which never happens.


  • Wesley

    By the time I was on the 3rd on of the trilogy, I just wanted to finish reading and be done with it.

  • Adam

    In Jedi Twilight, Reaves established a compelling iteration of the classic Jedi-and-motley-companions archetype. Jax Pavan and his companions are brought together by circumstance and the machinations of a much larger plot running through Reaves' books, from Star Wars: Darth Maul Shadow Hunter to the Medstar Duology and the Coruscant Nights series. In the first book, Reaves shows the potential in his crew. Jax experiences the emotional fallout of Order 66 and life in the Dark Times, and the fear [...]


  • Katrin von Martin

    I hadn't been particularly impressed with the first two books of the Coruscant Nights trilogy and therefore went into the third and final installation with relatively low expectations. Having finished it, I have to say that Patterns of the Force (as well as the rest of the trilogy) had potential, but suffered in execution. Specifically, the author uses too many "silly" ideas in this novel for it to be taken seriously. Spoilers follow. The story begins pretty much where the last book left off: Ja [...]


  • Sean Watson

    Top of my list of great Star Wars series. A must for any EU fan!!!!!


  • Steven

    Kind of a let down of an ending to the trilogy. The story was a bit of a mess and all over the place. It all led up to a meh ending.But knowing there is Jedi PCP was interesting.


  • David Barney

    This three book series was slow in places, but the author did a good job of bringing it all together.


  • Erika

    Wow! They weren’t kidding on the title. Everyone sees patterns of the Force, but different ones unique to each individual. Wait until you come to any paragraph introducing a new Force user flexing his Force muscles for the first time “on screen.” Reaves draws diagrams and detailed descriptions so you really get the point that this must be really important to the plot. It’d be silly to have a title that made absolutely no sense.Let me stop you now from thinking that this actually has any [...]


  • David

    Well I finished this trilogy and have to confess the middle book was more "STAR WARS" than the others in the series. All three of the books had brief cameos of Darth Vader, however, I have to report that overall I was disappointed in the series because it wasn't really about a Private Eye in a Star Wars setting. Instead, it was about a guy building up an "A-Team" type of organization of wanted folks seeking to work in an underground manner in opposition to the Empire.The other objection I have i [...]


  • Thomas

    Take a glance at that cover over there. Don't take a good look, just glance over, get a sense of it, and come back. Now, is it just me, or does it look like the guy on the cover is dueling a gorilla? Every time I picked up this book, I saw a gorilla, and after Street of Shadows, I figured some dude fighting a gorilla with a lightsaber would be an improvement.Thankfully, Patterns of Force is better than the previous book in the series, and doesn't involve gorillas with lightsabers. Reaves abandon [...]


  • Megan

    In my review for Coruscant Nights II, I said that for Reaves, a lot of the time, it's the force of the well-conceived, well-done first book that carries the second book along. Well, the third Coruscant Nights book gives us a little glimpse at why, maybe, Mr. Reaves should maybe stick to writing singles, and also, makes us all thankful there's never been a MedStar III.I really disliked this book, if you can't tell. As it's still about a Jedi private detective living in the Coruscant slums, there [...]


  • Mike Smith

    This is the third book in the "Coruscant Nights" trilogy, a Star Wars series set just after the events of The Revenge of the Sith. Like the other books in this trilogy, this story is essentially a mystery/detective story in structure. Instead of revolving around a murder, like the previous book, the mystery here is finding out which character is in possession of a desired object. Unfortunately, it falls a bit flat. The desired object just doesn't seem worth the energy that all the characters are [...]


  • David Roberts

    I am reviewing the Star Wars novel Coruscant Nights 3: Patterns Of Force by Michael Reaves which is a very good book which I bought from kindle. This book is the conclusion to the Coruscant Nights trilogy and is one of the better books in the Star Wars series. The story kicks off with the man who was once Darth Vader's right hand man coming to terms with all the evil he has done and now he is part of a rag tag group led by Jax a Jedi who is very much being hunted down by the Empire although they [...]


  • Jaime Krause

    The third book in the CN series begins with Rhinann determined to keep an eye on I-Five. This includes eventually telling the others about the bota: purely for selfish reasons.Jax thinks about the friendly behavior between him and Anakin, which still seems odd to me. I understand Jude Watson wouldn't include EVERYTHING in her junior novels, but Anakin giving something to Jax seems OOC with how he even behaves with other Jedi in the prequels. Because I-Five has transcended his programming and bec [...]


  • Ian Reay

    Michael Reaves is a GREAT writer! I have found myself drawn in to his stories and truly care about his characters! When first reading this book, I didn't realise that he wrote the books that introduced us to Den Dhur, I-5YQ and Lorn Pavan (unforgettable characters). It's good of him to continue the stories of these three (well the latter's son anyway).Something else that is essential to a Star Wars writer these days is to incorporate the books into the flow of the rest of Star Wars' canon novels [...]


  • Jim C

    My rating is 3.5 stars.This is the third book of a trilogy and the other two must be read before this novel. We return to our little group on Coruscant that help people get off that planet. In this one someone comes to them with an outlandish plan that they consider. Also, they come across a teen who is strong in the force but has had no training.I enjoyed visiting this group once again. The author has created a nice dynamic between the characters as they struggle with survival. I loved that he [...]


  • Maythavee

    This is my favourite book in the Coruscant Nights series! I loved it!Jax really stood out in this book. I really liked his character development from the rogue Jedi in Jedi Twilight to this really cool Jedi Knight dedicated to help people. I loved his brief role of being a teacher. The rest of Jax’s ‘family’: I-Five, Den Dhur, Dejah Duare, Rhinann and Laranth were great! In this book, there were less I-Five and Den interaction (which I missed dearly) but more of Dejah and Rhinann. I had a [...]


  • Ben

    The reason I restarted this series was the cover of this book. The reason that I started reading this novel was the cover of this book. If you are in the same boat, I would say stop before you even begin. The first and third books in this series are bad. The second one is OK, but not worth reading the first one to get to it. The author introduces new characters for the sake of plot but are as thin as the paper they are written on. None of them are interesting and it makes it seem that there are [...]


  • Varad

    A decent conclusion to the trilogy, but it doesn't resolve much of anything save clearing the decks for future books (which, given some of the characters appeared in several books prior to these three, is no surprise). It takes an awful long time for things to get interesting, about page 200 of a book that has 288 pages. Then things are wrapped up fairly quickly. There's a predictable betrayal, one character finally gets what he wants, and further adventures await. There is a sense of anti-clima [...]


  • Patrick

    Meh. I love many of the Star Wars novels that come before Episode IV. That's everything from way before Episode I to Clone War stuff to stuff between Epidoes III and IV. This series is just OK though. You pretty much have to read this author's other three prequel age books (A Darth Maul one that is OK and a Clone Wars duo that are good, but philosophical more than action-packed.) to have any idea what's going on in this series.Then this series kind of tries to meld the action Star Wars stuff, wi [...]


  • Rebecca

    It was a decent finish to the series, but the attempt to build up the prospect of a big mission to try and assassinate the Emperor and/or Darth Vader didn't really work because, being a pre-OT novel, you knew it would fail anyway. The mission itself ended up crammed into a few pages at the end.The team's usual missions to move threatened beings off Coruscant took a back seat to the main plot about who had the bota extract and the discovery of Kajin and his exceptional Force abilities. I did like [...]


  • K

    Patterns of Force is the third book in the Coruscant Nights series. While I really enjoyed the first book, the second book let me down slightly, and the third unfortunately produced the same results as the second. While I wanted to enjoy this book, as it provides a decent story between RoTS and ANH, I really had trouble staying focused. I really enjoyed how Reaves portrayed Vader and his ruthlessness, but found a few liberties the author used, such as a droid having emotions felt by a force user [...]
