Inferno Spoilers

Well, Star Wars Insider issue #95 has some spoilers for the next novel in the LotF series, Inferno.

They can be found here.

Basically, all I have to say about these things is... meh.

I don't think I have ever been so sick and tired of a storyline pre-release as I am over the rest of LotF. It's oddly disturbing.

Of course, a lot of that might be because this entire storyline is a mere rehash of the Prequels. Don't get me wrong, I can understand reusing themes or plots. But there is a world of difference between re-using a plot and rehashing it.

Consider this description:

The Sith are on the rise again. They're using a trade dispute to start their war against the Jedi, and quickly shift focus to a rebellion against the galactic government as a trap for the Jedi. At the same time, one of the most promising young Knights is slowly seduced by the Sith in an effort to get him to join them.
Care to tell me which I was describing? Is it the Prequels or is it Lotf?

Heck, I wrote it and I don't know the answer.
