    1. Abridged Audiobook.I don't know. I wasn't really paying attention. 3 "it's not your fault I was only half listening, but you couldn't have been that great if you didn't pull me away from what I was doing" stars.

    2. Dengar is scavenging around the Sarlac after the big blowout at Jabba's when he makes two discoveries: 1) a dancer named Neelah is not all she seems and 2) Boba Fett is alive. Back post-A New Hope, Boba Fett is hired to destroy the Bounty Hunter's GuildTE: Based on the novel (read years ago) and the audiobook.I Liked:What sane person wouldn't want to read a book starring the most enigmatic, least important, most highly sought after character from the movie? I read the book to learn more about Fe [...]

    3. If you like Star Wars and Boba Fett, then you'll probably like this book. I enjoyed the machinations of all the schemers involved (which includes just about everybody), but I thought there were too many long winded "meeting" scenes where the various scoundrels explained all their plots and plans in way too much detail.Boba Fett has become a legendary character in the Star Wars universe despite being only a minor character in the second and third films of the series. Boba Fett and his "father," J [...]

    4. If you don't know me, you have no idea how much I love Boba Fett. I love him a lot. :) So needless to say I had to read a series that had to do with Boba Fett and how he isn't dead! This was a neat read, and I can't wait to move deeper in to the series. You get views into 2 different points of time. Before Boba Fett is eaten by the sarlacc, and after he escapes. It's a nice window into the Bounty Hunter's guild, and super awesome for anyone who wants to know more about why Boba Fett is a bamf.

    5. Pretty much a waste of time and paper. There's not much to spoil.Two half-hearted, interleaved stories--"Then" and "Now"--with little to no connection in this book. (Is that why there are two more books in the series?) Many plot and character errors based on what we all now know from the "first" three movie episodes, but of course Jeter didn't know who Boba Fett really was, nor the clones, nor lots of things in 1995.What's the deal making the "bad guys" like Boba Fett and Darth Vader semi-good g [...]

    6. With The Force Awakens only days away, I decided to read another Star Wars book; this time actually one of the "expanded universe" entries. Out of a great many I care not to count, I had only this one. But seeing as it focussed on the legendary Boba Fett, it seemed as good a place to start as any. The last Star Wars book I read was Aftermath, and I pointlessly wrote an in-depth review of that one. This time I’m just gonna keep things short because I have a cold and I need to work early in the [...]

    7. I read this book around the time it was released in 1998 and didn't really like it. I wanted to like it but I just couldn't. It's 14 years later (holy crap) and I decided to give it another try since my brain has evolved quite a lot since then. Maybe this time I would like it. The storyline revolves around Boba Fett, my favorite Star Wars character, and a bunch of bounty hunters. How can that not be good!?14 years later and I still don't like this book.First, let's start with the cover. Looks pr [...]

    8. I'll review the trilogy as a whole.I didn’t like it. I thought that K.W. Jeter extended the story with needless background and side-stories that extended this from a long novel to three books. I also didn’t like some of the characters, such as Kuat of Kuat and Mub’at. Don’t get me wrong, the idea behind them was okay. But the flaws were too much to get behind.First, Kuat. I just couldn’t get past calling him Kuat of Kuat. So I guess my reason here is petty. Don’t call this key charac [...]

    9. K. W. Jeter’s contribution to Star Wars’ expanded universe tells the story of how notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett came by his iconic armour, meaning that this book covers the back story of one of the series’ most-loved characters in a way that nothing else has done before or since.Unfortunately, since Disney bought the rights to Star Wars, all of the fantastic books that have been written for the expanded universe have been declared non-Canon, which means that they didn’t officially ha [...]

    10. Ask any ‘Star Wars’ fan whether they think Boba Fett really met his end at the start of ‘Return of the Jedi’ and they will tell you no chance! How could a character as cool as that be killed off so easily? The fact is that is he was eaten by a Sarlacc and he left a good looking corpse, increasingly looking less so as it is slowly digested. That is until 1998 and the release of the first in a trilogy of bounty hunter books, entitled ‘Mandalorian Armor’. In this book author K. W. Jeter [...]

    11. As a fan of the short stories about Boba Fett from the 'Tales from Jabba's Palace' and 'Tales of the Bounty Hunters' books, I went into this book expecting more exciting tales of intrigue, action and mystery from the seedy underbelly of the Star Wars Universe. What I ended up with was a few hundred pages stained with the tears of my disappointment. It begins with Fett's ruined body wasting away in the Dune Sea of Tattoine following his escape from the Sarlacc pit. He does get rescued, but if Fet [...]

    12. This story jump between events before the Empire Strikes back and during the Return of the Jedi. The main part of the story covers the destruction of the Bounty Hunters Guild by Boba Fett. The main flaw is that the actual destruction of the guild is covered only very briefly at the end of the story, and the bulk is about how Boba Fett joins the guild and follows a mission in which he enlists the help of four other bounty hunters including two familiar faces from The Empires Strikes Back - Bossk [...]

    13. Not as good as i first thought but still a decent tale of the famous bounty hunter Fett. He is still alive after being taken for dinner, okay storyline but hardly that much action.

    14. The Bounty Hunter Wars Trilogy follows Boba Fett after he escapes the sarlacc's stomach. The majority is set during events of The Return of the Jedi.The Bounty Hunter Wars Trilogy:-The Mandalorian ArmourSlave ShipHard MerchandisePlot ***Spoilers***The Mandalorian Armour begins with Dengar searching through the wreckage of Jabba's sail barge for anything or anyone of value. As Dengar is ready to give up, assuming that the Jawas had beat him to the wreckage, he notices two things: first, that the [...]

    15. If you ever thought the bounty hunters of Star Wars were never given enough screen time or if you thought that Boba Fett was unceremoniously killed off at the end of Return of the Jedi then I think it's pretty safe to say that The Mandalorian Armor does a pretty good job of fixing both of those problems.I actually really enjoyed The Mandalorian Armor a lot more than I thought I would. I figured, like most novels in the "legends" line, that it would be a cheap, schlocky sci-fi story under the gui [...]

    16. I read the whole trilogy. Action scenes were very well-done. Character development was good. Too many supporting characters were distracting. Strong male & female leads, with the absence of any romance, was a big letdown.

    17. Un roman de l’univers Légende un peu décevant. Il y a beaucoup de dialogue et d’explication et peu d’action ce qui est surprenant dans un roman mettant en vedette les meilleurs chasseurs de prime de la galaxie.

    18. This Expanded Universe Star Wars book is set in two time periods. The first is shortly after the destruction of the Sarlacc (as detailed in the short story "A Barve Like That" from "Tales of the Bounty Hunters"), an event that occurs shortly after Episode VI. Dengar finds Boba Fett dying in the desert and drags him away to nurse him back to health. The second narrative is a series of flashbacks to a number of years before the Sarlacc pit, a time when The Bounty Hunter Guild still existed. Prince [...]

    19. me: I'm reading The Bounty Hunter series. I expected to struggle with it, but I love it. The author really makes me care about the characters and the main character is Dengar friend: Care about Dengar? Who is this magician?Yes, that almost sums up the entire book. This story has made me form an attachment to Dengar, and so hard that I looked to the ending of the series to see if he lives. That's pretty hardcore.So Dengar has fallen in love. He wants to get out of the business, get married and se [...]

    20. This book has some issues of narrative and pacing. In every chapter it switches between the present time in the book and four years in the past. This can sometimes be confusing, as the book doesn't spend enough time in either of these periods at any point for the reader to remember what is specifically happening separately within either of these time periods. This causes allies to be bitter enemies within five pages of each other, and then be allies again within another five.However, this book d [...]

    21. EDITED REVIEWI had great expectations about this book but it was not up to them, not necesarily because it's a bad book. There are some things that didn't quite work for me. For starters, Boba Fett's mysticism vanishes a little since he talks a lot, something that was quite important to his personae in the films, although I understand that it's necessary. On the other hand, the plot against the Bounty Hunter Guild is carried away all too easy. After one small operation which by the way is not ex [...]

    22. The Mandalorian Armor by K.W Jeter is to this day probably my favorite book based on the lisence.I read these books when I was twelve years old, having just finished the excellent Jedi Apprentice series by Jude Watson.So having read this more than a decade ago why write this review? I just re-read it and still believe it holds up incredibly well!so instead of giving synopsis of the story like other reviewers, I would like to address some of remarks levied at this book.Too many scenes depicting p [...]

    23. After reading a pretty poor book, I wanted to read something fun. I mostly read Literature and History books and while those are fun in their own way, it is also nice to read something that is just aiming to entertain you. The Mandalorian Armor delivered that and some. This book is a bounty hunter story and actually focuses on scheming and subterfuge instead of the Space Opera story that Star Wars is famous for. So that means less action and no Jedi stuff. I was totally fine with that, because t [...]

    24. Boba Fett is dead! Long live Boba Fett!Remember when Boba Fett fell into the Sarlacc's pit in Return of the Jedi? Well somehow he survived and he's still his bad-ass self.That's the basic premise of this book (and trilogy). The author is a fairly decorated sci-fi author so he elevates what could have been a fan fiction project into a very enjoyable romp. The dual timelines, one taking place after Fett survives the Sarlacc and the other taking place years previous, serve to highlight the lows and [...]
