    This story has just started but it has really caught my attention. The fic reminds me Dune by Frank Herbert in some ways, and it's very well written. I am also liking the author's portrayal of Anakin so far, and the author has said there will be weekly updates. :)

    My rating for this fic is 4.5/5

    I like it. Anakin's rise to leadership was fairly believable, and his characterization was excellent. I'll definitely be watching this for updates.

    4/5 so far.

    Well I've read what has been written and it's alright I suppose. I imagine if I gave a rat's ass about the Star Wars universe then I might care a little more. As it is this fic rates about a 3/5 on my boring fics that I won't ever look at again o'meter.

    Nothing much has happened yet in the story. Just seems like the author is setting something up and this story could go on for a long time. But what is written is good, with hardly any grammer mistakes and an easy read. 4/5

    Just reread the entire fic and wasn't disappointed in the least. This latest update looks like the start of the meat of the action and I'm pretty eager for it.

    Unfortunately there's no telling how long it'll take the author to get there...
