Overall, quality is a bit mixed, but it still was good enough I went on to read the others in the series. The series does get better. ( )

SPOILERS

From the start i was getting into this book, which is rare for me, but ive had to drop it after the 46th page

When vader was on mechis 3, that's when he should have realized something was wrong and the droids took over. Then the rest of the story should have been about vader fighting them and then killing them all and stopping their plan for galactic domination. Which makes sense and would have been a good story. Plus it would have made sense in the continuity since IG-88B was all that was left, the bounty hunter who wasn't on the planet at the time. Then near the end of the story vader and 88b do or say something to eachother which indicates a kind of neutrality. That's why 88b is allowed/one of the bounty hunters that comes to the meeting. Mabye they fought and vader knows it's powerful. Mabye that fight was about revenge, i don't know.

Because it's also a short story too, 73 pages. What i described would have been really good and as an in-between story. Instead...vader kinda senses something wrong but does nothing. Then months go by. Months, which would have exponentially increased the machines plans in so many ways they should have been almost impossible to stop. Or something like that/huge thread. But they're not...they do nothing, pretty much were the same. Even though they're super efficient robots and been spreading themselves around the galaxy.

88B would have been recognized when he tried to enter the ship. And even when INSIDE he would have been recognized.

It had been pretty good and logical up to the vader part. After then it got boring enough to drop. ( )

Unfortunately, these sets of stories are no longer canon, thanks to episodes 1-3 and the stupid Clone Wars tv series.

However, on their own, these stories were just as good, if not a touch better than the previous Tales book [[book:Star Wars: Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina|353479]].

The first story, about IG-88, was the best in my opinion. Robots are always cool and killer robots are wicked cool. ( )

Boy, the stuff I read when there's nothing else around. I found myself in every avid reader's nightmare; finished reading my current book and nothing at hand to read. "Tales of the bounty hunters" was at hand so I sighed and plunged in.

"Mostly forgettable" would be the two word review I'd give but as I have more space, I'll say that by the time I'd read "Tales of the Bounty Hunters", I had seen "Return of the Jedi" so I knew that Boba Fett's adventures were not canon but he looms over proceedings, finding himself the nemesis of IG88.

And for some reason I felt bad for Bossk; it may be because I had his action figure when I was a boy. ( )

Tales of the Bounty Hunters takes 6 characters that we see on screen extremely briefly - and all save Boba Fett have no lines - and expands their stories. In the 5 short stories, we are given more detail about who they are and how they came to be on the Executor, taking up the bounty on Han Solo. In the case of the tale of Boba Fett we find out what happens to him later on, after the fall of the Empire.
The stories themselves are brilliant. I enjoyed the tales of IG-88 and of Dengar the most of the 5, mainly because I felt like they were the better executed of them all.
As a general rule, you're given just enough back story to understand their motivations and enough forward plot to understand where they fit in with the Star Wars universe. I've always been a fan of the Bounty Hunters, so this book was a bit of a treat for me. However, I was a little let down when it came to Boba's story.
He made casual appearances in the other 4 tales, each one telling a little of the part he played in the hunt for Solo and, by the time his tale came, there really wasn't much left to tell. So his tale was more of a continuing story, looking at what he does when the Empire is no more.
On the whole, I enjoyed the story, but I was a little disappointed in it's ending. Boba Fett has sworn that he will kill Han Solo and claim his bounty, if it's the last thing he does. However, the story ends with Fett and Solo holding each other at gunpoint, discussing how neither of them wants to die, neither of them wants to trust each other. Neither of them can see a way out of the situation that doesn't include shooting each other, or trusting each other not to shoot the other as they walk away.
I almost threw the book across the room in dismay... I really did. ( )
