Awesome Sequel!

Star Wars The Jedi Academy Trilogy Volume 2: Dark Apprentice reminds me of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back in many ways. First of all, it's somewhat darker than Jedi search, just as The Empire Strikes Back was darker than A New Hope. Also I think it took me a little longer to read than the first, which is similar to the how Star Wars V is a little longer than episode IV.
One of my favorite things about this novel is the Dark Jedi spirit found living on Yavin 4, but I won't go into detail so that as not to spoil it for those who haven't read this book yet.

All in all I'd say it's a worthy sequel to Jedi Search but, while it's not worse, I'm not sure that it's superior to the first either. Still, I recommend this book to any Star Wars enthusiast.
