    1 thought on “The Long Night of Centauri Prime

    1. 4.5 stars This is a fantastic book though I will say at the outset that it may not have the same impact for someone who is not a a fan of Babylon 5 and b familiar with the character of Londo Mollari who is the central character of this story With that preamble aside and as someone who fits squarely into both a and b above, this is an excellent book The atmosphere that Peter David creates around Londo and turmoil he is faced to endure is incredibly well done and turns the once great villian into [...]

    2. I really enjoyed the TV series, Babylon 5, and particularly enjoyed the exploits of Londo Mollari and Vir Cotto This book is the first of a trilogy set right at the end and after of the TV series It brought Londo and Vir back to life for me and I enjoyed it quite a lot It was a bit slow in places, without a lot of action, but for me the chance to revisit the characters really made up for that.

    3. A great read for any B5 fan If you aren t a B5 fan well start watching the old shows so you can become one.Just when Londo thinks his past is behind him, his world and his body are infiltrated by the Drakh The start of Londo s final downward spiral and Vir s ascent.

    4. At the end of season 5 of Babylon 5 one of the story lines that are wrapped up is the story of Londo Mollari and his coming to inherit the emperorship of the Centauri Republic We find that his story is a cursed, tragic one, because just as he reaches the pinnacle of power in his star nation, he is utterly robbed of it by the insidious Drakh and their minions The series ends with pictures of a lonely Emperor Mollari sitting on his throne, puppet to the machinations of the evil Drakh The Long Nigh [...]

    5. I was the dawn of the Third Age of Mankind, ten years after the Earth Minbari War The Babylon Project was a dream given form Its goal to prevent another war by creating a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully It s a port of call, home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, and wanderers Humans and aliens wrapped in two million, five hundred thousand tons of spinning metal, all alone in the night It can be a dangerous place, but it s our last, b [...]

    6. Babylon 5 Legions of Fire 1 The Long Night of Centauri Prime by Peter David It took only the n th rerun of Babylon 5 for me to finally pick up this first part of the Centauri Prime trilogy and I m glad I finally did The Long Night picks up from Londo s coronation to Emperor up till 2267 It shows how Londo s keeper and the Drakh influence him and Centauri politics, how they turn the Centauri Republic into some form of police state even with some parallel to Hitler s Youth , how Londo internally r [...]

    7. This is the first book of a Babylon 5 tie in trilogy, based on a detailed outline JMS the series creator wrote It tells the story of Centauri Prime after the Shadow War, expanding on some of the points in time we see in one of the TV movies stretching from the end of the series into the remaining 20 years of life Sheridan has as president of the Interstellar Alliance Over the course of all three books, we get story of some my favorite characters, esp Londo Mollari and Vir Coto, but also working [...]

    8. The first book in the Legions of Fire trilogy is definitely a must read for every B5 viewer.The trilogy is written by Peter David, possibly the best of all the various Star Trek authors, whose rich Trek novels I recommend to every Trekkie And once again he fulfills expectations with this Babylon 5 trilogy that answers so many of the questions left unanswered during the TV show.This first novel of the trilogy is all about setting ground, characterization, and good writing, introducing many fascin [...]

    9. I gave a pretty harsh review of the later 2 books in this series so I thought I should give the positive review for the book I adored Peter David does an excellent job here portraying Londo and Vir in character They have some fantastically witty lines and the slow build up of conflict as Londo learns the extent of the challenges he faces against the Drakh is just heart wrenching The scene with Timov at the end had me literally in tears Peter David has shown here and in the novelization of In the [...]

    10. Babylon 5 is simply one of the best SciFi tv shows that I have ever seen This book picks up from the tv series where Londo Mollari has acended to the position of Emperor In the last three tv episodes, much is alluded to as to what happened to Londo and his friend Vir Cotto This book jumps right into what is alluded to, and how Londo handles his hidden enslavement to the Drakh The twists and turns the plot takes are excellent reminders of the twists and turns that Londo s scheming and planning to [...]

    11. The events depicted in The Long Night of Centauri Prime occur immediately after those of the fifth and final season of the Babylon 5 TV program While the author tries to work bits of backstory into the book, the simple fact is that the characters and events of the novel of built from the incredibly deep and complex plot of the TV show Anyone who tries to read this story without the background in the TV series will find themselves lost If you possess this background however, the novel is an almos [...]

    12. An unimaginative tie in with crude chracterization and crass politics did the unofficially official paper really need to be called Pravda.This book lifts way too much content from the TV show in contrast with the first installment of the Psi Corps trilogy And when it does something new, it s often even less smart than the show Granted, this show was smarter than most but I expect books to be smarter than TV.I found this book marginally enjoyable when it wasn t infuriating So if you don t mind de [...]

    13. Estupendo libro para los seguidores de Babylon 5 La serie de las legiones de fuego nos narra la historia de Centauri Prime y Londo Mollari desde que ste llega al trono y los Drakh lo hacen su siervo, hasta el final de sus d as y la liberaci n de Centauri Prime En este primer tomo estamos muy cerca de donde termin la serie, cuando Londo entra como emperador y el guardi n se le pega al hombro Personajes de la serie original y algunos nuevos se entremezclan en una trama de gran intriga y que nos de [...]

    14. The struggle for Centauri Prime begins as Emperor Londo accepts his fate Or does he And how much can he do against his new masters when they know every thought he thinks The characters are strong and just like their TV personas And since this is one chapter I wish we d gotten of from the final season, I loved it It does change a little of the timeline from that final season, but it is a minor issue.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

    15. Babylon 5 being probably my favourite sci fi and Londo and G kar s often intertwining stories being two of my favourites of the series, I was itching to read this trilogy, and I was not disappointed Starting just as the Drakh attaches the Keeper to Londo neer the end of Series 5, it shows the fascinating and tortuous relationship between Londo and Keeper and Shiv kala I never thought I d feel sorry for Londo

    16. An entertaining and provocative look at Centauri emperor Londo Mollari s fall into darkness and shadow As this was one of the best of all characters from the TV series, Babylon 5, to see his story continued in this novel gave closure to a tragic persona who naively set the stage for his own demise.

    17. For Babylon 5 fans only This trilogy describes the major events occurring in the roughly 20 years between the end of the t.v series and Sheridan s death This includes the fate of Centauri Prime, Sheridan and Delenn s son, and many favorite characters I enjoyed this series immensely, it answered some questions and it made me nostalgic for the series.

    18. Good read Peter David s books are often a verdant forest whose foliage is cliched phrases in the final analysis is a favorite but it generally doesn t make them any less enjoyable There is a great amount of satisfaction in reading some of the details of the keeper that we are introduced to so briefly in the series.

    19. Fantastic read It captured very well what was only hinted in the TV series, and can t wait to read the second book.Reread June 2016 Even though I haven t rewatched the show in a while, I was immediately back into the conflicts of the characters Still one of the best tie in books I ve read 5

    20. I found this book to be slow in some parts but all in all I thought it to be a good read and a very interesting telling of the events that took place after the keeper merged with Londo Really enjoyed the sub plot with Timov and the development of Vir s character.

    21. A must read if you are a fan of the show It picks up where the show left off, and a lot that was left a mystery and unresolved is finally settled Of course this is book 1, and it leaves you hanging You must read book 2 to finish the story.

    22. A great read for anyone who likes Babylon 5 Peter David manages to write the characters and details almost perfectly This book is as close to watching an episode of B5 as a book just can be.I d give this one 4.5 stars.

    23. Nice book It s the first I read from the Babylon 5 series, and probably even the first sci fi book I read I m very likely to read the rest of the trilogy now.

    24. I generally don t read books based on series, but I did enjoy the Bab 5 books that J Michael Straczynski plotted, including this one.

    25. Oh how I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this one It was such a wonderful read a real treat, a MUST READ for any fan of B5 I just LOVED, LOVED, LOVED how Vir and Londo were depicted

    26. Londo s story.What I always liked about the B5 novels was that Sraczynski plotted them all and they were considered canon, unlike a lot of tie ins based on other series.
