In fact, in searching my library for more novelizations by him, this one popped up. Pitch Black and subsequently The Chronicles of Riddick are favourite films in my household and I am quite fond of the character of Riddick. I suspect Vin Diesel, the actor who plays him, is quite fond of Riddick too, and it shows with Chronicles.
Anyway, after surviving the monster infested a,an in Riddck BlackRiddick has sequestered himself away from humanity, but is dragged back in thanks to the arrival of the Necromongers, a powerful race of beings bent on purifying the galaxy and preparing everyone for the great beyond. Riddick, who has now been imbued with magical Furyan powers thanks to a prophecy and upgraded backstory.
One by one, he pushed back hoods and examined faces. He had no divining equipment with him, needed none. He knew men better than any machine.
So I feel like I should give Foster credit for capturing both the vibe of the film and showing such patience with our illustrious star. Fortunately, this book was not just about Riddick and the perspective quite often changed. Kyra in particular is a character of interest, as is the Lord Marshall in his unwavering beliefs, but really, I am here for the Vaakos.
Foster did not let me down with the sultry blade that is Dame Vaako. I was disappointed though — or perhaps pleased with the final movie version of the parting between Riddick and Kyra.
Book Review: The Chronicles of Riddick by Alan Dean Foster
Well, my boyfriend is obsessed with them, and dragged me to the theater to see them all over the years. The last one was really…. I am not sure if there is a better actor who could play Riddick as well as Vin. My friend and I used to have email exchanges that were 32 pages long when all was said and done… all talking about Riddick and fooster survivor instinct.
I liked how the third movie sort of reverted back to ofster nature, but then it went off the rails with some really gross misogyny. Like Liked by 1 person.
