THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS.
Apocalypse was good in that in tied up most of the loose ends of this series, and I really liked that Jaina and Jag finally got to get married and be happy. The ending quote was an interesting way to end the book and I guess it's supposed to make readers wonder who the series really is about. (I'm still wondering who it's supposed to be from).
Something that I didn't like was that Apocalypse was mostly a bloodbath because the characters were either fighting or killing each other almost the entire novel. I think that Troy Denning didn't have to be so explicit/specific on how the characters died.
After finishing the Fate Of The Jedi series, I can say that I don't think that they were bad. I was actually surprised to find out that Abeloth was part of the family of the Ones from the Clone Wars, and I thought that it was creative that they included that part of the TV show into the E.U. I also thought that it was way cool that the authors included Callista Ming in this series so that she just wasn't left hanging after Planet Of Twilight. (I kind of wished that she had a larger role though...) I also liked that this series brought back characters who hadn't been in Star Wars books for awhile like Raynar Thul and Admiral Daala, and made new ones that were cool like Vestara Khai and Ashik the Chiss.
I think that the series should have been shorter than 9 books. I felt that the authors were running out of steam or ideas by the end. But, if you like loads of fighting, drama, suspense, and action, I'd recommend this series as it won't disappoint.

This whole series was terrible. I am a big Star Wars fan, and I am very disappointed with the last few books that have been released, ESPECIALLY this series. Like I said, awful.

At first read this book is a really good finish to the series. But, on second read it is not that good, it could be used as " Milk of amnesia" ( Thank you Robin Williams ). It totally put me to sleep on the second read ! But thank goodness I got thruough it the second time ! to make sure that what I thought was right !

I generally don't dislike Troy Denning's writing, but I don't think he captures all of the established characters quite right. I found his take on Boba Fett far too chatty, for example. Aside from that, I think he did pretty well with Apocalypse. It brought the series together for its last big, drawn out battle and set up the Star Wars galaxy for what will surely be several new stories to come.

Best Star Wars book series ever! Can't get any better!

A really good book. The ending was not as tidy as I thought it might be. Left a number of plot issues unresolved.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: The main villain Abeloth has tentacles and this book describes explicitly how she puts her tentacles into her victims' bodies. It might be a little disturbing if you've never read or watched anything like this before.

Violence: While every Star Wars book has some violence, Apocalypse is very explicit when describing its violent fighting scenes.

"The darkness was eternal, all-powerful, unchangeable. She had stared into it for too many years, alone and unblinking, determined that it would not take her.
Now it never would.
Now she was lighting a candle."
