Read & Download Maul AUTHOR Joe Schreiber ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Set before the events of Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace this new novel is a thrilling follow up to Star Wars Darth PlagueisIt's kill or be killed in the space penitentiary that houses the galaxy’s worst criminals where convicts face off in gladiatorial combat while an underworld gambling empire reaps the profits of the illicit blood sport But the. Joe Schreiber introduces something different to the Star Wars universe creature horror I haven t read his other work yet but I know from the brief descriptions that it s his signature It s in full effect here Lockdown is a brutal violent claustrophobic novel There s a uniue monster that manages to be uite creepy in a universe where giant gaping maws digest you for a thousand years That s no mean feat and the creepifying nature of that particular monster was my personal highlight for the book I love a good monster and Schreiber deliversYou re not going to experience any real scares though because our protagonist our villain protagonist I should say is Darth Maul Maul is exactly as brutal violent and frightening as his appearance has always suggested It makes for an interesting inversion of the normal horror aesthetic Maul doesn t get scared so we don t get scared since he s our vehicle In fact this plays into one of my favorite tropes mugging the monster where a monstrous or brutal character is brought down by its attempt to take on a victim that ends up being even monstrous It s very satisfying to see evil pay unto evil If it were a Jedi under such a threat we d be inclined to be worried since the Jedi is a good guy But when monsters go after a Sith Lord We just want to see how much ass is going to be kicked And Maul does kick a LOT of assDespite my glowing opinion of the visceral aesthetic the novel is undone by an unwieldy plotThe basics of the plot are straightforward and encompass some pretty good twists along the way The what is solid and isn t my issue here Unfortunately it is very difficult to follow the who and the why in this novel This is a problem that comes up in a lot of franchise fiction especially for the sprawling Star Wars Expanded Universe Lockdown doesn t have it as bad as some other novels but it s still an issue that I feel needs to be addressedIn my opinion a franchise or Expanded Universe novel needs to be accessible to a person who hasn t done anything than watched the movies that spawned the franchise You re a fan of the movie you see a Star Wars book you pick it up and go You shouldn t have to do a lot of homework outside of the novel itself to understand the who and whyThe problem here is that Lockdown draws on a LOT of Expanded Universe material If you haven t read Darth Plagueis by James Lucerno you re probably going to be confused by the presence of Darth Sidious Sith Master Komari Vosa and the Bando Gora are likely going to confuse you unless you re a true Expanded Universe scholar We don t get any explanation here about who these plot relevant characters are I don t think that s acceptable it s what made the Bantam era of Star Wars novels so difficult for newcomers towards the end of its run You needed a degree in Expanded Universe ology to know what was going onThankfully Lockdown isn t THAT complex You can understand enough about Darth Maul just from his movie appearance he s a Sith and he can kill EVERYTHING And since 90% of the novel is Darth Maul killing things you ll be fine in that regard But there s a deeper plot going on in which Maul is a chess piece in a game played between Sidious and Plagueis and as it s that game that sets all the other events in motion I think it s a mistake to have it buried so deeply in EU material without providing us a shovel to unearth it on our own

Read & Download Maul AUTHOR Joe Schreiber ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook And one of the power hungry duo has his own treacherous plans for it But first their fearsome apprentice must take on a bloodthirsty prison warden a cannibal gang cutthroat crime lord Jabba the Hutt and an unspeakable alien horror No one else could brave such a gauntlet of death and live But no one else is the dreaded dark side disciple known as Darth Maul. 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

This review is courtesy of topoftheheapreviewscomIs a prison enough to hold the likes of the powerful Sith known as Darth Maul Joe Schreiber attempts to answer that uestion in Star Wars LockdownDarth Maul is a character that has captivated audiences but however didn t get the screen time nor the necessary attention in the movies to really build up who he is and how dangerous he can be Thankfully the extended universe has attempted to answer these uestions in novel formIn Lockdown Darth Maul gets sent into a prison that has been deemed inescapable in order to find and acuire an item that someone deemed almost a myth holds in his possessionThe entire story takes place in one location Star Wars readers hoping to find planet hopping epic space battles and fantastic lightsaber duels and use of the force may be shocked to find out that there really isn t anything of the sort here It s uite a stark contrast to most of the Star Wars novels with the exception of a handful of books That s not to say there isn t any use of the above but it doesn t play as much into the storyWhat you do have here is a well written tight locked room mystery type of story with a Star Wars twist on it Joe Schreiber does well here As in all of his thriller and suspense and horror he pulls you along with uick action and fast frantic pacing You really get the sense that time is of the essenceThe use of the prison as a corrupt entity to make money off the fighting of the inmates creates a good catalyst to really figure out a bit about Darth Maul He has to overcome obstacle after obstacle all without letting on that he is a force user and a Sith You almost see him break which is kind of nice Visiting inside the mind of this force user and viewing his feelings of failure and his thoughts in the face of certain death creates a bit of sympathy for this Zabrak whom you know is actually evil at heartThe characters are painted well and the emphasis on each is pressed upon you at exactly right right momentThe Bottom Line No force no lightsabers no planet hopping no star battles and yet this as the name Star Wars on it That s the beauty of this universe and the beauty of Joe Schreiber s writing It s a great book and you could easily take the Star Wars out of it and make it something else People that don t have a lot of Star Wars knowledge or would pass it up because it s a Star Wars book in general should stop and give this one a look Yes it has fantastical aliens and you ll find names like Darth Sidious and Darth Maul but those are all secondary elements The winner here is the story Star Wars or not it s just a great piece of fiction
