Title: Legacy of the Force: You Were My Brother Author: Dash Nolan Rating: T Genre: Adventure/Suspense Status: Complete Fandom: Star Wars (NJO) Summary: After Darth Caedus wins the Battle of Kashyyyk, he now must embrace his new role as the galaxy's leader, all the while fending off those he once held dear. [[LOTF AU, Jacen, Jaina, Zekk, more - Action]] Link: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8599613/1/Legacy-of-the-Force-You-Were-My-Brother A nice, very fast-paced fic set during Legacy of the Force rating about 60k words. To me it reads like a character study of Jacen Solo/Darth Caedus just as much as a thriller. The prose flows really well, with combat scenes that seem to jump out of the screen. The characters seem well-written, though there are a couple of hiccups IMO. (There's a scene involving Tahiri Veila and Ben Skywalker that struck me as a bit off) While featuring multiple POVs, Caedus is indeed where the focus and action is at and one gets a sense of his indefatigable will as the stakes quickly mount. As much as I disliked Jacen's characterization in Legacy of the Force - it felt like a derailment of the Jacen that we saw in Traitor and the Unifying Force circa NJO - it's hard not to root for Jacen/Caedus in this fic. I'm pretty sure - given the ending - the fic is a setup for a sequel, but unfortunately none seems in sight anytime soon, given that the fic completed 3 years ago. Still, a well written NJO fic that is complete and features - IMO - a contained arc that resolves mostly satisfyingly. 5/5, highly recommended.
