hungerGalaxy of Fear: The Hunger by John Whitman


Well, my hope for the series to end on a strong note was dashed. This final book takes us to Dagobah, where we (of course) meet Yoda, and even have a run-in with Boba Fett while we’re at it. I don’t think that’s a spoiler, though, since the two characters are featured on the cover of the book. This time around, Zak and Tash have to survive in the harsh jungle setting of Dagobah, while Tash finally gets a chance to understand her Force sensitivity.

I’ve like the way the books go back and forth between Zak and Tash being the heroes of the books. They even work together in some books to solve the mysteries, and I like that the stories give readers different people with whom to identify. Plus, it was nice to see DV-9 return, since his character development was interesting in the first six books. I’m not quite sure why Whitman decided to take him out of the story, but if anything indicated this was the last book in the series, Deevee’s return was it.

It’s funny to think that I started reading this series three days ago, and have finished all twelve of them in that time. I guess it helps that I was on vacation at the time, and the stories were short and easy to read. I wouldn’t be opposed to reading more of Whitman’s work in the Expanded Universe, but it looks like these are the only books he wrote for the license. Oh, well.
