Format: Hardcover
Vortex has a lot of action And Denning does know action. He does a commendable job not only juggling all of the various soap opera story-lines in FOTJ but he does so while giving us the feeling that things are really finally moving. Not happy with the Jedi Council lately? Denning remedies that. Thought Ben and Vestara were too cutesy in Allies? He tweaks that relationship too. So there was a feeling of resolution of several ongoing plots. Whether I agree with all of them is debatable.

Abeloth is more confusing and relentless than in Abyss. Why she's after Luke's old flames I don't know but I hope that goes somewhere. I really loved Denning's Luke. I haven't always in the past but Luke is as wise, powerful and understated as we want him to be. Denning creates with Abeloth something pretty un-Star Warsy. It's new. It's a Force driven David Lynch realm. But I mostly approve of the risks Denning takes by making the Force cringeworthy.

I won't call this a page turner as I didn't tear through it. I did however notice that it's more what the fans have been clamoring for in this series. There are definite consequences in Vortex. A fine entry in a fairly thin series.

By Adam TOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 8 2011
Format: Hardcover
Finally! Star Wars is getting exciting again! Fate of the Jedi has been kind of slow paced up until Vortex! This book was hard to put down and cost me some sleep because I couldn't. Denning has done an awesome job of taking characters that have started to bore us (mainly Daala, Hamner and the whole Tahiri story arc) and finally done something with them! We finally see Daala, Hamner and the other Jedi Masters finally take some action and make some choices.
Of course Luke and Ben's story arc is hitting some high points as well. I wasn't expecting the twist with Abeloth which leaves you wondering just what exactly she is and how the Skywalkers are going to deal with her. Vestara is also right in the thick of things and it is pretty cool to see how this Sith girl is still working with the Skywalkers, more and more willingly all the time.
This is a must read book in this series!

By Charles Dimov TOP 100 REVIEWER on Nov. 24 2013
Format: Audio CD
Vortex brings in a fair amount of action, where it seemed to lag in the previous few editions of FOTJ.

It does a good job of keeping the reader/listener guessing on Vestara's real objectives. As the observer your heart is with her, although her actions perplex.

Interesting to bring in some new phenomenon called the White Current. However, it frustrated me that throughout the series, there are new learnings on the Jedi side, that get completely forgotten as the series draws onward. The Sith on the other hand, learn the techniques of the Dark Side, from one edition to the next (they learn from the Night Sisters - in the Allies book - for example).

Interesting enough to keep going... but there are times where it seems drawn out. As another reviewer mentioned, the soap opera aspect does get tedious.
