Anakin's search figures in second book in Trilogy
A review of Whispers of Betrayal

By : Valeda Kor

This is Anakin's story, the second entry in Quiller's excellent trilogy featuring the trio of Anakin Skywalker, Padme Skywalker, and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Already he is the Dark Lord, an evil, hulking presence. How Quiller has him enjoying his new status, the overwhelming power, the reach of the dark side! But even with access to all that implies, his old master has stolen Padme away. The hunt is on.

In Quiller's deft hands you will feel the depth of Anakin's caring for his wife, as you will also feel the depth of his hatred and anger. It will carry them all -- Padme, Obi-Wan and Vader -- to a future that Star Wars fans know a little of.

Quiller shows readers an Emperor that is a master of manipulation, the epitome of the evil that we've seen in four movies. His motivation to rule the galaxy is spelled out in no uncertain terms -- there's not a wasted word anywhere in "Whispers of Betrayal," especially when it comes to Palpatine and his oh so willing servant. Yet, pay attention when the author gives readers a hint of the side of Vader that was Anakin Skywalker, intimating that his turn to the dark side was a reaction to the isolation he felt at the Temple, the resentment at the control the Council exerted, the pressure of being the Chosen One. It is a pervasive argument. Read the story, then, with that in mind.
